I liked it! It feels very open and atmospheric, the noise channel work and arpeggios do well for that. Compositionally, it feels a little stagnant. It would've been cool to see those long, drawn out chords repurpose themselves in some way during the 2nd half. All things considered, nice work dude ^_^

Thank you so much for listening through! I realize the song has a bit of potential with the environment, so I'll definitely focus on improving my writing. heart

You can go a long way if you program your instruments to sound more expressive!

• Experiment with strategic pitch slides.
• Incorporate vibrato to make your melody sound like it's being sung by a human
• Program your hi-hats to have varying attacks. Because if you were a real drummer, the hits would naturally be inconsistent.

Just a few suggestions, to get you started. Good luck!

It was such a delight to see you perform, that night!

My latest release gets gradually more sentimental as it goes on.

Astroskeleton used to make NES rock, also. Their records "You Are Not Alone" and "Into Stardust" are both excellent!

Back in like 2009, I discovered Anamanaguchi through a CollegeHumor video about how the boys use their NES; around the time "Dawn Metropolis" came out.

I didn't get super into the "using obsolete hardware to make music" aspect until 2011 when I started listening to Nullsleep, Bit Shifter, and Covox.

But I didn't get LSDJ until I came across "Vacation Wasteland EP" by Slime Girls in 2013!
