This song is for round 1 of Newgrounds Audio Death Match 2020. This is my first time ever competing in NGADM. I want to wish good luck to trixelbit, CylrielOfficial, and LunacyEcho, who I'm competing against in this round. It was really fun working on this one, and I learned a few new things. :)

Gonna need that pair of shades to keep safe from the blindingly lit metric modulation

Haha thanks! :)

This is really cool one. i like it so much :D

FateModified responds:

Thank you so much! <33

Very smooth and pleasant to listen to. It reminds me of some of the music I would play along with during the Unreal series mixed in with what Philip Glass would do if he was into writing fusion. The whole piece sounds like a constant transition as it just cycles through and through. Hence the title I suppose and it fits.

FateModified responds:

Thanks!! I gotta check out some of the music you mentioned that it reminds you of. I’ve heard of Philip Glass but I’m not sure I’ve heard much of his music. They sound cool! And actually I named the song after the current state of the way life seems now in these very uncertain times, but I do like your interpretation of its meaning. I’m horrible with naming my songs lol, but I’m glad you thought this name is fitting. Thanks for the comment! :)

The song is exciting throughout it’s entirety thanks to the great movements. Very enjoyable.

FateModified responds:

Thanks brotha!! Glad to see you on Newgrounds finally! :)

The sound design and percussion are lovely!

I would have liked to hear a melodic solo at some point.

FateModified responds:

Thanks Everratic! I actually was trying to add a JBV solo but it didn’t quite work out. My piano skills are not so great and when I try to program solos on JBV they never sound right for some reason. Thanks for the comment and good luck in the contest! :) <33
