This song was written for the NGADM 2019 Auditions.
It's also my first piece after an undesired, roughly two year break.

God damn it feels great to be able to do this again.

I am starting to catch up on the submissios for the NGADM. But damn dude you ahve been gone for 2 years? That's a lot of time...
Still, it is very nice to see that despite that absence you still had got a very solid track on the display! Very nice!

Awesome mate! Living for the dynamics

LunyAlex responds:

Cheers man! Glad you like it!

this is so nice and epic! really love the way that it progresses and the buildup of tension throughout the song—it sounds like it was made as part of a score for a larger project, and that's super hard to do when you've just got music to show for it

well-composed and orchestrated. looking forward to what you'll put out for ngadm, and good luck for round 1!!!

LunyAlex responds:

Thanks for the feedback!
Glad it gives you those bigger project vibes. That's quite the compliment!

(And yes. You caught me. Haha)

The melodics are... Angelic. Keep it up.

LunyAlex responds:

Thank you!
Means a lot!

I like the airy piano riff at the beginning and the sassy strings and dramatic percussion at :06. There’s a great anticipatory vibe about this piece, and the mix is rather well-balanced and clean. Nice job offering some dynamic contrast to the listener at :37. There could’ve been a stronger sense of progression through the breakdown at :37, but I’m enjoying the furtive tension and emotional appeal of that section. I think you could’ve used a stronger transition into 1:25, but I’m liking how the texture comes together a bit more by 1:40. The melodies at 2:05 hit the piece home well. My main complaint here is probably regarding the abrupt transitions. It also couldn’t hurt to flesh out the composition a little more. If you didn’t usurp the texture every 15 seconds, it would help the arrangement feel less choppy. Still, top-notch work with the production quality, sound design, and atmosphere. Keep at it, LunyAlex! ^_^

Hey, thanks alot for the detailed review!
Very constructive and encouraging simultanously!
Still working on them transitions. I'm happy my mixes seem to be improving slightly.

Thanks again!
