Recently I've been listening to more synthwave, realizing how big of an overarching genre it is, i was intrigued. The colors of Futurism is purple, blue and some pinks, naturally fitting with my tastes and my band colors. I found it so wonderful to focus on this genre, i felt at home and as if i feel I've recovered from my musical tiredness. I embraced ever aspect of myself when making this. I want to make it part if my artistry. So this is my spin on it, with my favorite Lydian style progressions. Enjoy the chill vibes here :)

I like the dreamy atmosphere at the beginning. The heavily filtered arpeggios at :39 were a great touch, and overall the texture sounds really rich and full. The piano melodies at around the 1-minute mark were really cute, yet also took the piece in somewhat of a different direction. Overall, the pacing of the piece is pretty slow, but compared to a lot of ambient pieces it actually sounds pretty dynamic. The emotional height at around 2:50 was especially satisfying. There were some parts of the piece where I wanted the drums to be a bit more creative or present, but otherwise I thought you used the sound design really well here. The soothing mood and airy quality definitely make this piece what it is, though. Keep it up, Colin!
