I wrote this song in about an hour and a half. I like writing songs really quickly; it's a lot less stressful than drilling on NGADM all day, for instance. It's about the undersea and the creatures that live down there.

Of that hour and a half, probably half of it was coming up with melodies. The other half was manually doing the vibrato and filter cutoffs. Dang though it's so tasty isn't it? It was totally worth it. And the melodies. Yummm.

Was a fun litle journey. The crashes were a nice touch.

Thanks bro!

Well, this is definitely fantastic. :D I love the melodies and the atmosphere. It's very soothing and relaxing. Transitions and structure were rock-solid. The FX with the ocean surf was pretty cool, too. It sounded like a fade-out ending, which I'm not too happy about, but then it cut off really suddenly. I usually leave a measure or two of emptiness at the ends of my tracks to make sure it doesn't do that. Congratulations, btw, Johnfn! You officially have at least one song on every playlist on my iPod except one: "Party Mix." It's a huge accomplish to master such a wide variety of different genres like you have done. Can you go further, though? I hereby challenge you to make a piece that can go on the "Party Mix" playlist! Have you ever considered trying DnB/House? :D

Thanks for the review :)

Yeah I know I'm definitely in the minority here among NG, but I feel like fadeouts definitely have their place, especially in songs like this which are soft and almost ambient. However the sudden cutoff is a definite error. See, I used to use FL studio, which had a nice option to render a fadeout tail (so that sort of thing would never happen), but I always forget during the render that Ableton doesn't have that option. Seems like I should eventually learn though hah.

> Party Mix

Ahahahaha. That is REALLY out of my comfort zone. But this is actually a really interesting challenge. I will give it a shot! Though it may take a couple of failed tries. :)

The fastest way to describe it is Minecraft/Mario/Sonic/New Age.
Nice, effective atmosphere, good melodies and sounds. Also nice themed drums. Maybe the ending is too sudden, but I think that's pretty much all my negatives.
And yes, it's tasty. Dang.

johnfn responds:

Thanks! Yeah I need to learn to let my endings trail off. I'm such a slacker with endings. :X
