Yes this a song about my cat from an EP about my cat. I'm excited to write more songs like this one, as I already have ideas to start more, so be ready for that!

I'm so glad to be back and I feel like my production has become very efficient and fast. Ableton has a lot to offer to my workflow. It's right around the time for the Newgrounds audio contests as well so this is perfect.

DAW: Ableton Live 10
VSTs: Serum, Massive, NI Scarabee Vintage Keys, NI Scarabee MM Bass, NI The Gentleman, NI Replika, Izotope Ozone 8.

I like the smooth pads at the beginning. The piano at :09 was a little unexpected, and also sounded a tad dry. Maybe some more reverb in the texture there would help fill in the atmosphere? The beat is smooth, though, and the texture really starts coming together at :35. Nice job with the sound design and production here. The progression is a little slow-paced, and I would’ve liked to hear some stronger melodic content earlier. That said, the breakdown melody at 1:10 is nice, and I love the juicy chords and rhythmic content at 1:27. The extended breakdown at 2:02 is good, and feels very reminiscent of the beginning, which contributes to the sense of story behind the piece. More solid melodic content at 2:38, and the extended emotional height at 3:12 helps tie the piece together well. The chord progression sounds really unique in this piece, and by the end the piece has a great, blissful, and victorious feel about it. The end is also a tad sudden, but otherwise this is solid work all around, Colin! Keep it up. ^_^
