Will check it also. Like the name, very metaphoric-when you light someting, then you cast shadow on something else, the more intensive light the more sharp shadow (contrast). Ofcouse you can't lighten everything, becouse then people wouldn't know what is shadow, and would name the light by this name. So what is the solution for everyone? The answer is pain :P. So the art sould be only a announcement of pain in the future, to be real art:P!!
Will check it out!!

I listened to your track, here's some feedback:

Overall it's not bad, but it's fairly simplistic. The intro is good, the breaks that come in are good and heavy. The echoed bass sound from the intro doesn't really fit in once the breakbeats come, it just muddies things up a bit.
The change from the pad to the bass synth is a bit drastic sounding, and the string melody that comes in is a bit cheesy: tracked strings generally work much better as chords IMHO, it's a lot harder to get a convincing solo string. The filtering on the bass sounds really good. I wished the pad from the beginning came back in some time.

Don't take this to mean I thought it was bad, it just sounds to me like it could've been more developed. Maybe keep this in mind for round 15 :)

I totally agree with youre feedback. It's difficult for me to work with samples, normally i work with midi data and vsti. So its more learning then good tracking. And its true the overall could be more developed. i didn't have enough time to get into the compo i think i totally spend only 4 - 5 hours on this track. And then i missed the deadline :( haha. Anyway thanks for youre feedback, hope you could give some more feedback on my other songs on www.mixposure.com/organicdreams
