here's the third track in the sumirs3cjams project! Like last week, this tune is on the gloomy side, with a slower tempo but my intent is to invoke a sense of stoicism amongst despair opposed to an uplifting sad feel. I wrote it while contemplating the end of life while writing my blogpost dated October 21st 2015. Heavy use of wah/expression here pedal here over a bass loop. hope to see you next week!

thank you!

Your dog, I suppose? "Contemplating the end of life" sounded a bit dangerous. O_O I like this tune too, though I'm not getting as dark a vibe as it seems you wanted. It feels thoughtful, not directly 'happy', but still with an air of contemplative peace to it. Like you're coming to new realizations, growing, evolving, coming to terms with the ups and downs of life. Nice guitar play again, with a touch of funk at times, nice and mellow, and the distance feels just right. Bass loop in the background gets a bit monotone if you start thinking about it though. :D Looking forward to next week!


S3C responds:

yeah, you're right :') (RIP)

Contemplative, at peace, is what I was going for, you're good at putting my sounds into words!! thanks for the review!
