AIM - A sky out of reach

So here's my first submission for the Art-Inspired Music this year! I really want to make two tracks this time around, so I made sure to finish this one early before time runs away from me. I'll probably still keep adjusting and improving it until the deadline.

This piece is based on this beautiful artwork by eatslugs :

I've always been a sucker for art that gives me the sense of being small in a large world, and this art fit that description to a tee. The main idea behind this piece was that I wanted to depict how the girl in the picture sees all the beauty and wonder in the sky, but is unable to reach. Still, she's satisfied with just watching it.

Aight, I'm just rambling now. Everything that matters is that riser goes DU-DU-DUDU-DUDUDUDUDU

Ps. This is my 100th track on here, so that's pretty cool :D

Really glad you liked it :D. Love your art!

I like the changes you made!

This is delightful to listen to. I think it’s one of the very best in the contest.

There are still some production flaws and the composition and particularly the buildups could be better in some ways, but when there’s so much to enjoy about a song, it masks a plethora of minor flaws.

I hope you continue making full songs in the near future :)

This is cool. I haven't listened to one of your songs in a long time and it seems you've improved.

When 2:24 hit on my first listen through and that synth arp started I was just like AW YEAUH!

I take half a star just cuz and your probably not going to like this, but I hate your ending. Lol I hear this from my wife on certain songs I make where she's like, "Oh that build was so cool, but then you did THAT," now I get the feeling. I thought it was going to go full on EDM crash and burn for the end. On my first listen through I didn't get it at all, but on subsequent listens I understand whats going on, but i just don't like it. IT'S ALL ME AND MY EXPECTATIONS MAN, IT'S NOT YOU T.T

In any case, great theme, cool song and if I could change it I'd vary the ending.
