I feel the need to cling to every second, yet somehow I've let literal years pass me by with no experiences. No memories.

I wish I was born into a smarter civilization, with less conflict and more ROBOTS. You know we could actually be immortal right now if the world stopped violently ramming its head up its own ass.

I do not like being this delicate machine.

this song has something special in it, when i readed the description you wrote, damn, the song just hit me different, that 8-bit sounding ambience after the drop, and the entire ambience you created for the song is beyond amazing! keep these great tracks dude!

Can't believe I forgot to review this. I listened to this when you first put it up and said to myself "I want to take the time to listen to this proper with my HD 650s.

I've always made fun of ambient genres as being a super easy. You can essentially fake it by sitting a brick on top of your keyboard. That's a gross oversimplification for a genre that can be anything you want it to be but I'm a jerk sometimes. From a conceptual standpoint I really love the way you fill out the majority of this track with grainy sweeping pads. The drum and bass is a small tease but I actually love that it's such a small fraction of the track. It's a strong track.

I think I wanted a little more texture from that ambient section though. You could have fit some juicy pads and samples in there to help give that area some character. It's a great pad but give me some running water sounds, a train thundering by, a park filled with children, a lion growing, maybe bring that drum and bass back later... anything. I get bored easily when I listen to ambient genres so it's more my own fault for wanting more from the second half of the song. I need to chill more :p

This is a really powerful track. I'm glad you wrote something so different from everything I've been listening to. Great melodies and pads. This reminds me of the experimental drum and bass I used to hear on newgrounds back in high school. This track has some serious flavor. Just throw some samples in next time to make grandma quarl happier next time, ok? Much love protagonist Nacho.

The ambient sections in this song and "I Want What I Can't Have" are both just the first sections reversed, stretched, and drowned in reverb and distortion. So yeah, it's lazy and "easy", but whenever I listen to the second half of this song I get anxiety, so hopefully I'm evoking thoughts and emotions in people.

I could have added more elements, but I think this was a song I made in a few hours before work one day, so at some point I just settled for what I had.

This definitely should give off that 2008-2011 vibe cause I think I exclusively used sytrus presets xD

Thank you so much for the review! It's always good to hear from you :)
