I came up with the idea yesterday, one of those things that just surfaces on the spot. I love noise when it's treated as a background texture, and it holds a lot of different personal meanings. I wanted to create something that to me feels like I've lost everything. Broken, miserable, lonely. There's nothing left other than a faint echo in the distance and noise.
That's just my interpretation. I'd love to hear yours.

All the chords had some sort of happiness to them; but one chord made it sad, it made it a darker atmosphere. It's a great piece. Love it. Well done.

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thanks man, I appreciate your thoughts.

I was fortunate enough to hear this prior to it going on Newgrounds, and I was instantly inspired. Sometimes I just listen to something and I can't stop obsessing over it. I have probably had this play from start to finish six times already and i'm not sure why!

Either way, I really hope something can come of this inspiration i've gathered. Thank you for this latest creation!

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thanks for taking your time listening and writing this comment. :)

I have vibes of Suikoden IV's ending slate coming into my mind when I hear this. (cf. Palisade Melody)

The noise that comes in as a background texture actually complements the chords that you put in here. I can imagine someone walking in a cold, dark night. It's raining, or threatening to rain. The wind is howling. There is either the feeling of loss, or... maybe just a general unsettling feeling and you have to get out, the mystery is too hard to solve and the weather is making it too vile to go much faster.

Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this, thanks for sharing. <3

ForgottenDawn responds:

I really like this interpretation, thank you for sharing. :)

Love the ambience!!! Reminds me of staring into an endless abyss! >u<

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thank you. :)

This is pretty great background music. I can hear the darker emotions in it for sure. Somehow, it's still pretty relaxing.

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thank you. :) For some reason, even though I experiment with different styles on a regular basis, I always come back to simplistic ambient music. It's like my musical home and nursery.
