I'm proud to finally upload my PixelDay 2020 submission ! It was so hard to find an idea, and compose something with this.


This song tells the story of someone who's always loosing time, and he must run after it. Well, that's all, and it seems to be a simple story, but it means a lot for me.

Made with :

- FL Studio 20 - 3xOscillator - Toad - Random samples found on the internet because Toad is not the best plugin for drums but add a little something to them - A lot of love, because it's important to love what you make

WELL !!!!!!

I hope you'll enjoy, and don't forget to give your feedback because it's always appreciated !

And I wish a good PixelDay to everyone !

I agree with ChronoNomad on the Daft Punk intro lol, great melodies, very classical. Nice! Although that licence is a little Draconian :/

The arpeggios, especially at the beginning, give me serious Aerodynamic vibes, a la Daft Punk; though the tempo is quite a bit faster, and the actual key progression does differ somewhat. This is a fun listen, and I like what you've done with the sound. You introduce all of your instruments once things kick off at the :11 mark, but you've done a good job changing things up periodically despite the fact that nothing new enters the fray.

I do feel like this suffers a bit without any kind of slow down to help ease the constant tension, however. This track definitely could have benefited from a slightly more downtempo section, and without that the music never really has an opportunity to rise into a dramatic climax. The ending is also very abrupt, and while I appreciate that you didn't use a fade-out out like so many of your fellow Pixel Day enthusiasts, that sudden stop is still rather underwhelming.

Overall, good stuff! The Daft Punk nostalgia is cool, and I have to wonder if you weren't - at least subconsciously - channeling them, if only just a little. The music fits the story, I think. As does the tempo. I know it's hard to envision someone slowing down as they attempt to chase their runaway time, but anyone would need a break...if only to catch their breath so they start running all over again!

Thank you for your feedback !

Some people told me the beginning sounds like this Daft Punk track but I didn't knew it before, so it's just a coincidence !
About slowing down the tempo, I wanted to give this feel by making the drums two time slower like at 0:35 and 1:30, while other instruments keep the same speed feel because the Time doesn't wait anyone.

Thanks a lot

Courir après le temps perdu, c'est bien. Le faire en Moonwalk, c'est mieux !
