As soon as I released Contemporary, this song was put right into the works. With a short production time, I'm surprised at the quality of this song to be completely honest. As far as I'm concerned, only 3 hours were put into this. 3 hours for 3 minutes and 30 minutes of fresh melody is pretty damn good.

This style is the complete opposite as Contemporary. Instead of changing up the melody a few times, I just used the same one and had different instruments compliment the melody with notes inside the same scale. Sounds great in my opinion.

I LOVE your synth choice for the lead melody in the beginning and leading into the song. I think the drums could benefit from being a bit stronger. BUT at 0:53 by the time that other synth came in, I have to admit I was loving the song. The way it flows from left to right speakers/headphones puts me in a sort of a trance. At 1:44, when that piano came in...heaven. Amazing mastering settings on that piano. It serves as a great touch for the rest of the song. The strings and the piano used to end out the song gave me chills. I'm imagining a part in this song where a different melody comes in with a nice pad in the background, I think another part like that to this song would benefit it a lot. This is a really chill song that I just had to download. I was just so sad it ended. Wonderful, wonderful work here.

Pure inspiration. Reviews like yours is what makes me so happy to produce free music for the benefit of others to hear. I was really skeptical when it came to adding in the piano, and even more with the strings! To be honest, it really seemed to me like adding in those two made the direction of the song change a little too much. But I knew that I had something great when I ended the song with the two playing side by side. Just a side note, the piano literally took me 30 seconds to master because I use a lot of default presets. The synth at 0:53 is my favorite part of the whole song, haha.

In thinking of how long the song is, before I added in the piano and strings, the song was only 2:30. I completely redid the song progression after creating those two instruments, and I've got to say, I'm glad with the outcome. Thanks for listening, and it's awesome that this song was worth a download to you.
