My entry for the artwork inspired music contest!

Artwork: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/antiskill/cyberpunk-city

I was imagining flying through the city on a hoverboard or something, with all the vibrant colors passing you by. Exploring, with so many possibilities ahead of you.



1. I consider this my best song in every aspect. (I finally outdid my NGADM pieces! yay)
2. Including live acoustic guitar. (Hey, it's acoustic guitar month, I'm not gonna let some contest stop me from doing acoustic guitar in all my songs)
3. It's also drum month and I worked extra hard on those. There's even a drum breakdown :D
4. It was late one night and I usually never start songs at night because I'm too tired to come up with anything good... but then I was playing the piano and came up with the (first) main theme and loved it. (I NEVER write the main theme first, so this happening was a huge surprise.) Then I took the progression, soloed over it in like 5 different instruments, and then went to sleep. Over the next couple of days I continued to add small ideas and stitch the whole thing together with transitions, etc.
5. I really like how the themes evolve throughout the song. There's the really obvious main theme, but then the secondary theme (outro) sort of spontaneously arose when I was writing a countermelody at 3:30. I ended up liking the idea so much that i scrapped my old ideas for an ending that would have recapped the main theme and instead left on the new theme, which gives the piece a really nice expansive ending (imo)
6. 90% of my time was spent doing melodies, and I think they're really good! if I do another AIM piece, I might do a more sound design focused piece.

Amazing song! My favorite part was the vocal-like synth starting at 1:36 and the acoustic guitar that came in after that. Great work!

johnfn responds:

Thank you! Vocal-like synths are the best huh? :D

wow, so clear and clean, very nice man, enjoyable tune, could be chilling to this on the beach.

johnfn responds:

Thank you :O

An Excellent piece of it's rare kind!
I listened to your song for more then a week. Nice use of stereo and of the sound spectrum (variety of sounds).

It's like the skills of chaoz fantasy into trance.

Holy "##%%&&%/. Most awesome piece ever. Gotta restrain from using caps, cuz WOW this is awesome :D. Was sure I already got my 3 favourites, but now I guess I gotta take this into consideration as well. I remember hearing your songs under the NGADM, but this is definetly the best piece I've heard by you and one of the best tracks I've heard on the site :D.

Instant five and favourite :D.

johnfn responds:

Hey thanks dude! I'm glad you like it so much :-)
