This happens to be the track I am submitting for NGADM 2017. I am excited to hear new projects from everyone.

Resilient is a project I did a while ago using a 3/4 time signature for fun. Later on I began to use triplets in 4/4 since it allows you to transition between the swingy and not so swingy beats (fantastic use of language).

Either way, after doing this project (as well as the Ichor remix) in 3/4, I became more aware of potential applications for switching between the two from time to time whenever opening a new project. In some cases, 3/4 is easier to use for triplets. You will hear how I applied it for this track.

Enjoy this melodic-hybrid-dance piece!!!

Good for you for making something that’s not always in 4/4! I like the upbeat mood, although the instruments were a bit cheesy. The transition to 4/4 at :41 was pretty cool. Neat idea. The kick at the refrain (1:02) is a little overpowering, and I think you could’ve done a lot more creative things with the drums there. The melody itself is really enjoyable, though. I liked the post-chorus with the transition back into 3/4 too. It’s a catchy, energetic, and well-structured piece overall. The cute piano riff at 3:30 was a nice touch too. Solid work.

Thank you very much for your feedback! Perhaps there could have been some more dynamic percussion; however, this was my first swing piece ever. I was exploring, haha. You should expect far more dynamic beats in the future.

Wow! I love this song! Especially the build-up and the drop!
But one question: Can I use this in Geometry Dash to build a level?
I ask because in the licensing terms just stand that I have to contact you etc.

Falsesouth responds:

Haha, I understand your concern.

Newgrounds allows the creator to enable or disable "external API" including GD. Since it is enabled, you should be able to use it.

Unless I for some reason write in the description otherwise, my songs on NG can be used in the game :)

The licensing terms is just for if people decide to use the song outside of external API like GD; for example, if they want to use it in their YouTube videos or something like that.

I still really appreciate that you contacted me, thank you so much for your review!

This is really nice!

Falsesouth responds:

Thank you :)

Beautiful, Chael. At 1:41, it started to give me a sort of oriental-like vibes :3 And everything else is amazingly one <3 ~Love you, Zombiez

Falsesouth responds:

I am very glad you enjoyed this. Resilient is perhaps my favourite project of mine. I had a lot of fun making it.

Thank you :)

Really nice track. The transitions from 3/4 to 4/4 were pretty cool, I can't say I've heard much music like that. Adding a few unexpected growls in the second half was nice a touch. Also, the ending is cute, it's good.

Falsesouth responds:

Thank you :)
