Hey everyone! So, I'm in my first term of university now, and this is the final project I made for audio design class. Made in 4 days, all sounds (except one!) created entirely using samples I recorded - all sounds were also built from the ground up by me. Happy to answer how I made any sound in it!

Otherwise, hopefully the composition is decent enough for piano improv. Enjoy!

Haven't been on here for awhile so I didn't see your review. Thanks for it much, I'm pretty happy with the general vibe and feel of the track here. Definitely do plan to make more ambient at some point, though I've definitely got a few different ideas atm.

Has a feeling of loneliness to it as if the astronaut has nothing to look forward to in the area of space where they are. I am curious as to what the glass / wind chime type sound was though. I assume the other sounds were mainly on piano and string instruments.

Also, not seen you here in forever. :( Hope you are able to stop by and be on Newgrounds a little more often with the upcoming holidays coming closer every day.

Hey there, NekoMika! Sadly, I've not had too much motivation to make music and have been otherwise busy with school and stuff. I've also been designing a game dungeon, as it turns out. Which is pretty cool!

For the glassy wind chime sound, I assume you mean the sound really clearly audible around 1:10 - in which case... that's actually the one made entirely of square waves! I ran it through a few effect modules (a type of 'bitcrusher', or as close as the program had - and then a vocoder). The other sounds actually aren't piano/strings aside from the very obvious piano lol. They're actually recordings of noise or mic adjustments ran through harmonic amplifiers and formant elements, as well as resynthesis to pitch a few of them around.
