This is my entry to the first round of this years NGADM.

I've been feeling super crappy recently, so I did this song over about two days. For a while I didn't think I'd be able to submit at all. Then I tried to write how I felt into a song. That kinda worked.

Even now though, I think any of the talented members from my group could just steamroll. Still, I'm happy with what I made.

I wanted to do a mixup of post rock with electronic elements.

I hope you like it.

Thanks to Misael.K, NickC, etherealwinds and skyewint for listening and giving me their thoughts. And thanks to the judges for putting on this contest.

Epic

This has an epic sound some nice work and something that would be heard in an epic movie scene So I came onto this and I was expecting something differant from the title alone but you have gone over the edge with this one and im pretty impressed with what you do have here, Its a good size too not too long but just the right buz about it This is un disputably one of the better pieces I have come across it has certain charm to it, you always do some nice music so this was nice

~X~

This is still one of my favorite songs of yours!

3:56 is the best climax ever. Love the build up and development, 4:22 is so sad. I really like how the lead sounds like it's crying in the end. You know how to make your leads as expressive as a professional cellist does with their cello.

Can you scout me?

Child-like wonder, beauty, space, curiosity, and hope are all the things that come to mind when i play this. downloaded and going to be walking home to this tune <3

This is an NGADM Round 1 Review:

This song made me feel warm inside! I just feel energized and good about everything when listening to it. You have a real way with blending synths and other instruments together. Your tracks almost have this kind of ‘rainbow’ effect; everything blends together to create something colourful and imaginative! Within the first 25 seconds into the song, I knew I was going to be in for a melodious experience. The melodies in this track are really something else. You’re some kind of musical wizard...aren't you? Anyway, you have set up a very atmospheric introduction which extends throughout the entire song. You manage to pull a lot of emotion from the synths in particular, especially around 3:30 and 4:00, and then again 5:06. Powerful is perhaps the best word to describe it. The way you build the song is fantastic, if not a bit slow at first (but I’ll get to that later)!

I only have two minor gripes: the progression in the first half of the song, and the mix towards the end. A progression that builds more in the first 2-3 minutes would be much more appealing, and a conclusion (among various other parts of the track) that offers a clean, tidy mix would take this track from awesome, to super saiyan awesome. The first 2 minutes of the song are wonderful, but the true pace takes a while to kick into full gear. Don’t get me wrong, I love the progression, it’s quite smooth – but seems drawn-out in the beginning. Things don’t really pick up until 2:24. From 3:29-4:10 there is some overlapping between the synths. They all sound cluttered together, which kind of drowns out the drums just slightly.

All I can see to wrap this up is this: please never stop making music. Great stuff, looking forward to your next entry! :D

Score: 8.5/10
