Every morning I sit outside on my porch with my cat and think about life while the birds sing to each other.

Grateful for the front page feature! Newgrounds is really the best :')

crispy mix! Is that your voice at 00:20?

larrynachos responds:

Nah. I wish I could sing or do any sort of vocals, but I can't. I can scarcely speak out loud lol. I'm glad you liked it!

This is so cool! Nothing to add, just congratz!

The drum and bass was ok but I came for the birds chirping. You're getting all avant-garde on us. Your next track better be a half hour of just recorded water running down a stream or we are no longer friends.

I'm wondering if something is holding the mix back, it sounds like the mid frequency range is in low supply. That mid range helps add power, this is all low/high.

God fuck, I love those birds. They go super well with that crispy piano. FYI, the bird sample ends abruptly at 02:40. Automate that channel so it fades out with the piano :)

larrynachos responds:

It was supposed to cut off suddenly with the bird sample but I exported with leave remainder instead of cut remainder >< There's something unnatural about it that I kinda like for this track though. I seem to always miss the mid range, maybe it has something to do with the headphones I use or the way I cut out frequencies. I'm really glad you enjoyed it Quarl!

idk if I'd describe this as avant-garde, I'm certainly not the first one to put nature noises in my song. But thank you! I do however have an alt profile @cx330 that I use for more ambient/experimental stuff :)

Thanks again for stopping by!

I think this piece is really good, but the difference between the first half and the second half is jarring. While I can see there's beauty in the second half of the piece that definitely fits with the title and description, it seems to me the first half doesn't fit as well with the vibe it appears you are going for. That's my interpretation. If you think I'm wrong, please clarify. I'm not quite sure what your intent and thought processes were for this song, so it's hard to judge based on how clear those things come across. Therefore I have to review based on my taste and interpretations.

I like the song, though.
