Based on the picture "Before the Snowfall" by Ookiee: https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/ookiee/before-the-snowfall

This is supposed to be a direct translation of a warm rest stop where travelers are welcome to stay for the night before going out in the bitter cold again.

I tried to invoke a sense of vast landscape as well as light snowfall and blissful serenity.

I also attempted to include the feelings of relief and determination in this song. I hope it comes through. More than that, though, this is the kind of music that goes through my head while walking around my own snow-covered suburb, so I hope it comes across in a similar way to others.

Enjoy! :)

Sounds pretty much like a snowy landscape indeed. The atmosphere that this song represents also feels kind of empty (at night, there is nothing but absolute darkness and snowfall, like in the Alps, I imagine). I don’t know if that was your intention when making this song, but I kind of like it. It’s not really my style, but I can say you did a good job here.

To clarify, my intention with this piece, as per the AIM 2020 competition requirements (https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1451112), was trying to base my song off of the picture linked in the description for this piece. The description itself is adding specifics to further explain what I was trying to do.

Therefore, what you said about the piece sounding like a snowy landscape is exactly what I needed to hear.

Thank you for your review. :)

Fantastic! The distorted synth and huge reverb transported me to the vast landscape you meant to invoke. I found my head bobbing along as soon as the drums kicked in. The piano melody was unique and served as an excellent backdrop. I also like the weaving between relief and the feeling of completing a long, difficult journey. Overall, great work. The mixing and mastering is solid and I hope to hear more from you soon.

Thank you! :D

Nice dude. This kind of reminds me of a Stardew Valley track

Very clear musical picture)
Good job!)
