for NGADM 2018 round 1.

i really struggled coming up with an idea these past two weeks, and this peculiar piece ended up as a result of 2 days' work. overall, i would've loved more time to polish this, but i'm ok with what i got :^)

best of luck to EndK and Papkee, both of your pieces are really great!

I can't use in GD :(((( it's so hard to find good songs, and whenever I do, I can't use them. Oh well, I still favourited.

The whirring sound effects at the beginning are pretty cool. Nice job with the smooth, jazzy vibe at :14, too. The progression is a little slow, but the sound design helps pass the time. Nice sense of climax into 1:06, but it doesn't really lead much of anywhere. Nice job with the atmosphere again at 1:07, and the melodic content at 1:35 is really fun, but I kept waiting for the texture to thicken and it never happened. There were just a lot of thin, pizzicato-y synths in the texture and not much reverb/fill. The glitchy content at 2:07 is enjoyable, and the mastering quality of the piece is really sharp. I just wish there was a bit more harmonic depth at times. The composition comes together pretty well in the end, too, with the blissful melodic content and pads. The ending came on a little suddenly, but it felt fitting with the way you tied the glitchiness back in there. Overall fun piece! Keep at it, Stardew, and good luck in the ADM! ^_^

For a piece with a long title and feeling as unique as it's name suggests, this is not a disappointment. I like the various melodies that are encountered, and how each time they're all unique and special. When it finally built up completely at 2:34, it felt worth it. Even the end, which may be as out there as you can get, somehow fit in to the theme.

My main nitpick, though, is the build from 0:07 to 0:36. I felt that it could use some sort of pad to help move it along. Just a simple one, but a pad nonetheless. It just felt lingerie and weighted, and I feel something like a pad could help lighten it up.

Overall, I like this. This has a pretty good chance in NGADM. Good job and good luck :)

Fricking Amazing!!!!

Good shit fam
