This is wonderful. I like the whimsical mysterious vibe and the instrumentation.

ZaazNG responds:

Thank you so much! :)

This was fun to listen to :D I look forward to listening to your AIM!

This is still one of my favorite songs of yours!

I was feeling sad for a while about not having time off work during the holidays and this helps cheer me up :) The piano solos are lovely.

AlbeGian responds:

This means a lot, man thank you so much. Merry christmas

This is very cute and fun! I love all the bells.

AceMantra responds:

Ding dong! Thanks for listening!

The melodies and orchestration are phenomenal!! I sense a lot of inspiration from Joe Hisaishi.

The transitions at 0:54 and 1:59 are quite masterful. I love how the song ends on a magical, wonderous chord.

I hope you soon get the opportunity to compose for an animated film and have your score performed by an orchestra :D

Santi-Montali responds:

Thank you! The first one is already an upcoming reality and the second... well that one would be a dream situation haha but one never knows!

This is extremely fun and satisfying to listen to!!! I love the childish, colorful erraticism. I'm glad you kept going in this direction even though you got some pushback in the past.

I think the part of the song starting at 2:17 would sound much better if you made it tonally consistent with the rest of the track. This could be done with basic EQ - don't be afraid to make extreme cuts.

Zechnition responds:

I didn't think about the tonal content of my sections, but I think you might be right! There's a very big jump in tonality at 2:17 I hadn't thought about (I was just focusing about making it feel big), and no time spent to transition the listeners' expectations.

Thanks for the suggestion, and the praise ^^ !

I LOVE the sound design - it's good ear candy. The melody is also very solid.

Maybe it's just me, but I wish the mix was slightly softer. There are some elements in the mix that feel slightly harsh, and they become more noticeable overtime. When mixing, perhaps you can try to imagine that the song will go in a videogame, and the players will hear it many times in a short period of time, and you don't want to fatigue their ears.

Spadezer responds:

The ironic part is I definitely listened to this quite a few times in a row paying close attention to how everything is balanced. Maybe I kept listening for specific things each time which caused me to overlook what specifically made it tiring to listen to. Maybey headphones aren't as harsh as whatever median you're on? I'm really glad you loved it though

This is fun to listen to! Was the theme at :31 inspired by the main theme of Octopath Traveler?

Santi-Montali responds:


The composition is lovely. Although the violin does indeed have too much vibrato sometimes, it has a lot of character and expression and works quite well.

I would have been content with the track concluding without this final section. It feels incongruent and forced.

You have an extremely good foundation that can be developed into one of your best songs with care. I encourage you to continue working on this :)

Santi-Montali responds:

I have to agree on this honestly haha. The original theme ends without even repeating and I kinda extended it for the sake of it. And yeah, I mean that ending bit could work but it needs more time to develop the emotion towards that point and also improve the overall arrangement/orchestration. Anyway, thanks for listening!
