[Warning: rant incoming] I've been writing a lot of short stories about people stuck in citywide lockdowns recently. Friendship, romance, heartbreak, work; it's been a kind of exploration of how circumstances either encourage or force people to look at the world differently. Writing for me has always been a bit like that; exploring how people change (or don't) through meeting with new experiences and feelings. To be honest I don't like this week's track very much outside of the last third, but I can't really deny that the mood is a result of the writing I'm doing, so in that sense I feel it has a strange personal significance, like an expression of a very particular point in time.

It started with a melancholic vibe and then went into prettier, slighthly lighter tones. Very delicate and subtle.

Really felt the melancholic and introspective mood from this track

I like the gentleness. Perhaps you do too when you look at it from outside the perspective of the stories.

That's usually the opposite of my stories: start with the pretty and go melancholic haha. Thanks!

I like parts of it, definitely. Just as a whole package I feel like it misses the mark. I might try come back to the parts I like some day. smile

Lovely sweet sound heart I get the mood you're going for, this has the kind of whimsical breezy feeling that I love so much. Great stuff.

This is lovely. I first noticed the distinct lack of reverb in the opening part which I think really helped it to open up throughout the piece, a very effective musical device.

I actually really like this one.  It has a nicely subtle build throughout the piece and evolves musically.

I'm a fan of music marking a point in time.  Even though most wouldn't even know, a lot of my pieces are.

Reflective of the current situation, for sure. Because of the quarantine here, the creative writing course I teach has moved to online. Despite having more time, the students are feeling the effects of isolation and are able to produce far less. There are other reasons, but the stories coming from the students tell the effects of this worldwide event.

About the tune: the initial instrument and quiet pad in the background are calming. This gives me reminders of some of my favorite tracks from Final Fantasy IX--my favorite of the FF games.
