Ok, so when I started this project, I intended it to be the final piece I had to make for WorldOfDex's game "Sirius: Age of the Free Agents", as part of a contract. Then, I realized I still had to make something for the NGUAM, and that I was in time. So, here's my submission!

Very good song dude!

Such a calm but intense atmosphere! I'm also really happy you survived NGUAM

I like the emotional quality of the beginning and the tranquil mood. The texture has a great sense of balance between the light piano melodies and bass drones. I like the percussion at :27 too, and the melancholy string line there is haunting. The transition at 1:22 was a bit sudden, but I appreciated the structural variety you offered there, and the piano solo at 1:50 was beautiful. I think the final refrain at 2:36 could’ve been a tad more climactic, as it doesn’t seem like you did more to expand on the first refrain at :27. I also would’ve liked to hear a proper outro here, as the piece ends pretty abruptly after the second refrain. Still, I love the sound design, mood, and atmosphere of this piece, and the beautiful melodies definitely help keep this piece engaging despite the lack of variety later on. Keep at it, WolfgangMiakoda! ^_^

I love the melodic chords so far. This piano is beautiful and that bass is penetrating into the wrinkles of my brain. What a beautiful melody. It is a little bit loud in a few areas but nothing too bad. I can't help but wonder what a break beat might do to this song...but that's just my techno side coming out. Oh wait, there it is at 2:31, right on time. Wow. I wish it was longer. That's it. Wonderful job here.

A decision must be made but either way you decide something tragic might happen. Your resolve will be tested, your mettle, and your heart might break. As you walk towards your fate, goosebumps raise all over the surface of your skin. This will take everything you have. Are you ready to face this situation? You reflect back upon what you have already been through as you convince yourself that yes, you have what is required. You continue walking towards your destiny with strength and composure. And your choice consumes you until there is nothing left but the setting of the sun...

Just a little glimpse of what this song makes me think of.

WolfgangMiakoda responds:

A lovely interpretation of the track. I was originally inspired by looking up at the night sky, and realising just how bloody small and insignificant everything is.
