*****June 15 Update*****
I made tons of improvements to the track, especially the leads. I altered the sound design, enriched the composition, and drastically reduced reverb globally.

This is my submission for Chips Compo III. I chose to give up my anonymity.

It's been a long time since I last made a trance song. I got the idea to make an electronic song from the contest's theme. The colorful nature of the images made me think of outer space, so I decided to make my song depict a space exploration journey, in which the subjects try to find a new home.
Plugins and samples used:
The Maverick - piano
Absynth 5 - pads
Massive - leads
Music Box from Kontakt (free)
3xOsc - white noise and bass
FL Studio Drum Samples


Enjoyed it.
Lovely melodies and nice arrangement.
The part at 2:20 is my fav part. Groovy stuffz.
Nice job!

I'm glad you enjoyed it. That's my favorite part too. Thanks!

You know a song has lured you over when you can't help but want to dance to it. But not only does this piece have a compelling rhythm, but it has some real atmospheric and melodic value! The melodies are all hooks, and the instrumentation is intriguing.

I knew I liked where this piece was going already after hearing the first seconds, since the piano was produced in such a nice way, and already hinted the main melody. This piece has some nice alternate melodies too, like the one around the one minute mark. It pairs well with the musix box/synth bell section at 2:06. I really like the basswork there too.

The progression of this piece is more or less perfect, and keeps the listeners attention. Now, there are a few synth sounds that arguably could've sounded a bit sweeter, but it doesn't distract much from the listening experience. An example of this is the lead at 2:35, heard more in the right ear. It just doesn't feel like the right sound to me.

I really love this piece, and I hope it does well in the audition!

P.S. Bonus points for the interesting ending.
