Ok, so hear me out; I was planning on fleshing Nebula out further for my submission for the NGADM, since I had made it before the deadline of the NGUAC, and after the next round of the NGADM was announced. However, after working on Nebula further and further, I just started becoming real demotivated; I just didn't like where the project was going, and it felt like I was forcing myself to work. So, I began a new project, and started working on that. That project became this.

Technically, it's not done yet; I'm actually hoping to get my friend to help me make a few drops that properly builds off the tension.

I like the cute piano riffs at the beginning and the emotional quality of the piece. The occasional atonal notes (like at :37) gave the piece more of an ominous tint, and I like the sense of climax into 1:02. The guitar melodies at 1:24 are nice, too. The drums here may have been a tad too loud, but otherwise I like the sound design and production. The gritty background effects at 2:02 sound really cool, and the piece comes together well towards the end. The mix is a bit too busy at 2:41, though, and I think you could’ve used more of a proper outro here. I also would’ve liked to see the piece return to the level of motion in the melodies that it had during the first climactic section at 1:22. Still, this is a really enjoyable piece with some strong mixing, sound design, and atmosphere. Keep at it, WolfgangMiakoda! ^_^
