mantle of blue


Author Comments

It's May. I'm not feeling so good. Many of us are suffering and it needs to be validated and eased. And too often, it isn't. I guess this is what I'm trying to say with this short piece.

The title, "mantle of blue," is a reference to Mary's mantle and the starry sky before midnight.

This was initially done on Day 2 of the 21 Days of VGM challenge (2 April 2020), in rough rudimentary form, and I uploaded it here as a project file. ......because Twitter wouldn't take it and I have too little space on my SoundCloud for it to count. It was born from my post-traumatic depression. I have since remade it, and it's now a lot less rough and much more ready to go up.

For those who have indeed been following my 21 Days of VGM prompts on Twitter and have followed the link here, these were the prompts I ironed out.

Task completed: Compounding the Problem (7/4)

Task completed: Modulate

This one brought tears to my eyes and hope to my heart.

This is just beautiful. You really know how to make the most out of soundfonts

Après toutes ces années, je n'en reviens pas que tu es encore sur NewGrounds. T'as un beau following, aussi! Bravo, tu le mérites amplement. (On s'est ajouté sur Skype il y a 8 ans, à peu près!)

Fidèle à ton style, et ce que ton cœur te dit : ta musique n'a pas changée de trempe. Je te reconnais parfaitement. On t'entend, là-dedans. T'es morose et mélancolique, mais tout de même léger et flottant; y'a toujours une lumière au bout du tunnel.

Bref, beau loop! Et beau travail de mixing aussi! Content de te voir encore à l'œuvre (j'en ai beaucoup à rattraper!). Je vais te suivre dans tes développements de ce pas et te follow!

Houlà, ça fait un bail 😁 Ravie de te revoir !

Y'a plusieurs commentaires avant le tien qui ont mentionné cet espoir, cette lumière au bout du tunnel qui est présente dans le morceau. J'avoue quand même que lorsque je l'ai fait, enregistrement, mixing etc., je n'ai pas pu ressentir cette lumière. Je croyais que je l'avais perdu.

Merci pour le follow, et pour ta gentillesse ❤️

I love it. The melody, the pads, the atmosphere... I love them. Very good work, I love it.

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you so much ❤️

This is gorgeous. Love the pads and high notes.

Troisnyx responds:

Glad you enjoyed it, thank you ❤️
