Which vsts did you use for this? I love the sound!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

No VST, it's one of the sounds from my electric piano :)

I really like the use of reverb! The singing isn't bad :D

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

It is bad though, haha xD

The instruments sound very realistic and expressive! The composition is short but satisfying.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I agree they're quite expressive! I'd like to buy an even more realistic solo violin though o.O
All the money though, ughhhhh
Thank you!

This is really nice. The melodies are somewhat chaotic at times yet don't sound like total noodling. I love the dreamy atmosphere; the reverb on the leads is so luscious. The structure is good; there's sufficient variety in the composition and it never feels repetitive, and the entire track still feels coherent. My only qualm is with the production, but I'm not sure if that's valid since this is a mono track after all.

Possibly responds:

Thanks for the review.

Was this inspired by FF? I love songs that have that vibe now.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

You found some really old stuff huh? xD
I actually don't think this was, for once, but I totally get what you mean!

This was very amusing :)

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I think the version we made for you is my third version of this piece on NG, and the only serious one. I'm heading off to sleep, good night!

This is very relaxing and uplifting. It feels a bit repetitive, but it serves as fantastic background music.

ChronoNomad responds:

Aw, thanks for the quick review, BlueOceans! Yeah, I can't disagree that it's somewhat repetitive at whiles, but it really does have a very pleasant BGM feel to it. I'm glad that you find it both relaxing and uplifting. :)

I think this your highest level of production and sound design yet. The composition is wonderful and I can easily visualize the Winter Olympics while listening. It seems to depict a celebration followed by an overview of the events leading up to that moment.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

I did learn some new tricks while producing this! I usually take a different approach to mixing my piano pieces, but I went for a more "professional" sound here, for obvious reasons. I'm glad my efforts were appreciated, thanks for the review!

not bad

funny cuz UR bad.

IN BED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ha

The song elegantly captures the many feelings that love entails. I sense moments of doubt and hesitation as well as moments that are clearly blissful. I find the chord progression to be excellent at depicting the theme of love because I sense moments of stagnation followed by a sense of rising, which represents a couple in a relationship transcending their doubts and worries and ultimately moving forward together. I like the way you executed that sense of rising; this part of the song seems to consist of two similar phrases that blissfully resolve into a higher chord, but with the first chord of the second phrase being more pronounced. From my perspective, this first phrase represents the suppression of doubts, whereas the second phrase represents a newly found commitment to the relationship.

The production and sound design are solid. The piano playing sounds very real (because it is), and the use of sustain is excellent. This is a solid choice of a piano, and it’s reverbed in a way that solidifies the feeling that the song represents someone’s stream of thoughts.

Although short and lighthearted, this is surprisingly deep composition with an excellent chord progression.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you for the kind review! I didn't intend for the piece to display any doubt or hesitation outright, but it's free for interpretation. To me, even though there is some ambiguity, the composition mainly portrays the feeling of calm. That is, after a period of either struggle, or uncertainty. So perhaps that is why you felt such a touch, listening to the piece. The way I see it, this piece reflects a "now", instead of telling a story per se. In that sense, to me, there is little in terms of emotional progress throughout the song; it reflects how it feels to live in the present. Not just any present, but one specifically influenced by the aforementioned feeling of peace.

This composition definitely repeats itself somewhat after the halfway point, with more expression. That may indeed be a hint towards some stronger feelings, though still of a positive nature.
