I've wanted to make a fusion of cinematic with chillout in a really long time but never got around to do it until recently.


This track is true hybrid-neutral of chill and epic. It's pretty hard to get it because I've tried with another track and it didn't come close to what this one is like, so I saved that one for the full album. (Resilience) I originally wanted to save this track for the album but I needed to release something before the end of the year.


The theme of this track is about environment sustainability.


Happy holiday, and enjoy :)

Starting in up to 15 seconds, sounding good. Only thing I'm noticing is some lack of clarity in your low mids. I'd cut some reverb down just a bit there, and up your low cut to about 250.

When the guitars come in they stand out really nicely but seem to kind of lay on top of the track. You can double track two guitar lines so that it doesn't sound centered, and apply chorus with a lower dry signal there. I really enjoy your composition though!

Around 1:40, your heavy guitars and or N64 esque bass are covered up by the reverb so that I can only make them out because I know what they are. I think that may be from personal experience with it myself just going ear dead to the composition after so many hours trying to get those juicy spacious sounds.

Compositionally, this is absolutely wonderful to listen to and you have a lot of varied textures. Excited to see more from you!

Wow you have good ears for noticing the instruments used in the track.

Happy and productive Holidays!

Thank you so much, RemileOduen. Happy holiday and New Year :3

The percussions chosen really help to give the atmosphere a "natural" twist. I like how sometimes there's more "artificial" or "metallic" samples popping out (see the high pitch percussions in the section starting at 00:48), I can see how this relates to the themes "sustainable environment" and perhaps also "pollution".

I must say, the bass of the section starting at 02:08 is really interesting. The bit-crushing allows it to merge well with the drum, and contrasts with the more "nature" atmosphere the song started with.

I think I don't have much complaint, except for the a little abrupt ending and maybe for some percussions that I don't hear well because of the bass's presence at 02:24.

Overall, I believe you did a great job at representing the issues we have with the environment currently.

Happy holiday :)
