Finally, it was finished properly; this song may now rest peacefully. More than 5 years of tweaking, from finding a legitimate free DAW, good Soundfonts to learning about mixing and proper compression. This is the original that was created in 2016:

I decided to keep this separated because this old version I made at 15 years old is memorable. I remember making this in the old house before my fam moved out.

I improved the overall mixing, changed most instruments into a high quality orchestra VST. It is now louder without being overcompressed.

Very nice. I love the bright feel, so magical. I could listen to this for hours. Keep up the great work my dude. :)

This was beautiful... so meditative.

Feeling a little stressed out occasionally lately, and I think I might just bookmark this particular piece as therapy; make it a morning ritual to ease up expectations of the day a bit. Curious if you use your music any similar way? Feels like it could've made with some such intent.

Good stuff. Rich and vibrant quality-wise too.

oh thank you <3 I'm glad my music got you feeling better. I originally made music for my meditative purposes, but this song wasn't one of them and this suddenly whispered in my mind when I was looking at a beautiful dusk at a car ride and began writing notes when I got home. My older music I made at junior high/middle school are made for me to meditate, and I made them during rainy season which makes it 1000% better. I have them uploaded:
Nowadays I make uplifting trance, which doesnt stray away from my original style.

Thank you bro. Everything about the song is calm and perfect. It really affected me in a really good way. Hope you have everything you ever wanted in life. 💙

VortexSupernova responds:

Thank you very much. Im tired from schoolworks and seeing this is heartwarming :)

I love the atmosphere that this song brings, peaceful, relaxing, and uplifting.

It’s like, telling a story of a child who is still innocent, and is just trying to enjoy nature. I could think of a movie scene that fits with this song, excellent job with this one.

VortexSupernova responds:

Thank you! This was actually named "Childhood's Serenade"/"Serenade to the Fireflies" and is the theme song of my original character https://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/vortexsupernova/shatterflame-childhood) which represented childhood memories :O Nice interpretation!

I like it) It's so satisfying!
