bubbles the size of mountains and planets the size of marbles where everything collides together in just the right way in just the right pattern to make a happiness but was it all coincidence or some grand design by a grand designer who designs from the beginning and designs for eternity until the time after time and in the time inbetween time but our minds cant comprehend because were just stupid monkeys poking at the universe hoping things will go our way.

I like the quirky sound design, but the rhythm is a little hard to follow at the beginning and the progression is a bit slow-paced. I think you could’ve done a better job at transitioning into :44, and the pads there sound a bit generic and dry. I like when the texture comes together more at 1:23, but some of the instruments sound a little harsh in the upper register, and the harmonic progression remains pretty simple, despite the heavy use of ornamentations. The melodic content at the very end kinda felt like too little, too late in terms of giving this piece some stable, climactic content. I would’ve liked to see you flesh out the composition a bit more and add some complexity to the structure. Still, the quirky instrumentation and solid production quality definitely give this piece a lot of potential, and I’d encourage you to keep working on it. Keep at it, Pulvite! :)

I friggin love your feedback for whenever I do any NG contest, thanks a ton! :D

duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude

Pulvite responds:

Thanks :)

Really good song, especially the beginning sounds being very strange! ;)

For some feedback, I think the sines were too harsh on my ears on headphones at 0:44. Also that first kick startled me.

But yep, this is a fun, bright, and creative track man. Great job!

Pulvite responds:

Thank you so much! Thanks for the feedback too :)

Really good song, but the beginning sounds very strange

Pulvite responds:
