I was not ready for this track. I was not ready.

This track was made for the tenth CHIPS competition. CHIPS is a weekly contest in which members anonymously post entries made along a certain theme and vote on other entries. It's a small-scale competition that emphasizes positive feedback and thonking memes. The tenth compo's theme was "Dreams", and I tried to capture that through the sight of a dragon ascending to a floating island.

For real, I started making this thing in full expectations for it to either flop or be very average in quality. But then I kept going... and it was like the track was a train and I had just been hit by it at full speed. And I guess you could say the flight inside of me took me up there.

A journey in the Aeolian mode. It parallels my previous piece Peaks in a number of ways, but also takes its own liberties and style. It also contains a reference to a pretty notable Pokemon Mystery Dungeon theme somewhere in there. Big props to Miyolophone for being the prime inspiration for this track, check him out here: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/770292

This is... I have no words. It's amazing. The calm theme, the birds, the amazing drops, and much more is just perfect. This is definitely a 10/5 stars ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)!
It's definitely your best an my favourite! Keep up the good work!

Lo vuelvo a decir, seria un honor que tuviera tu música en spotify, aunque yo se que no la subirás ahí nunca, pues me queda esa esperanza de que algún día pase :(

I love it

It's very beautiful song!

Good track
