This is a beautiful track! The atmosphere is lovely, and I like the unconventional mix of instruments. It sounds very uplifting.

My only complaint is that I think it sounds very condensed. In other words, I think that there isn't enough repetition, and this piece would be catchier and more memorable if some of the sections lasted longer.

ColinMuir responds:

yeah i can agree with that, haha, i kind of scare myself of repetition too often. Thank you. :)
Side note: i realized its too condensed, as its called condensation.

I think this is one of your best short pieces :D

This genre is not my cup of tea, but I enjoyed this a lot! I don't have much to say except that it was very relaxing :)

KamillasRainbow responds:

Thank you :)

This is phenomenal! Reverb isn't usually something that stands out in a track, but the way it's used here is glorious.

larrynachos responds:

I think I actually paid attention to the reverb settings on each insert, instead of just fiddling with the wet knob until I liked it

This is very relaxing to listen to :D The atmosphere and sound design is nice. The main thing I dislike is that the piano playing sounds unrealistic.

SplatterDash responds:

Thank you so much for the review! Ultimately the piano playing most likely sounds unrealistic because of the balance I was trying to achieve between the device and the brightness (not sounding too dark while also sounding realistic), but it's apparent I gave priority to one over the other lol. Really happy that you enjoyed this :)

The sound design and production are impeccable, and I love the chord progression as well!

The only thing that bothered me is that I feel like the main melody was never presented in a manner that would make it shine and become an earworm. The drops, with the competing melodic phrases, are lovely, but I wish there was another busy section in which the main melody could be perceived as playing continuously without competing elements.

I think the final drop would have sounded great with a +2 key change; it would sound super cheesy though :p

The mood of the song reflects the art perfectly!

endKmusic responds:

Yeah, I guess that's one of the things I should work on more for sure, since I always tend to do something different in each part (which is not always a good thing).
It's kinda always been that way .____.
Thanks for the review! <3

"as it has many flaws in its current state,"

wow, I suck at finding flaws apparently.

stardew responds:

haha, thanks a bunch BlueOceans :^)

the only thing i still kinda wanna touch up is the beginning, i've noticed a few odd chords (although they may only be odd to me, idk).

The first half sounds like a foray, and the second half sounds triumphant; I guess that the subject successfully accomplished a clandestine mission. This is a wonderful track. I'm still amazed at how effectively you can tell stories in such a short amount of time.

Bosa responds:

Thank you! Fortunately this time I had video to score to!

I think I noticed the following pattern of different emotional states: blissful love, grief, hope, and despair. It's amazing how seamlessly the song switches between them.

I envision a story where two people fall in love, but tragedy strikes one of them, and the other ultimately fails to save the stricken one.

Bosa responds:

Ah, a great image! I am very glad that the music can tell the story for you :)

This is really cool. I like the addition of orchestral instrumentation. The production is mostly good. The mix sounds clean and the instruments sound like they're upfront. With that said, sometimes the bass instruments have way too much bass and are generally too loud, and they obstruct the rest of the track. The percussion is great, but I find it odd that the melodic rhythms are so basic, and a lot of melodic notes are fully sustained. The melodic and percussive rhythms should work together. When you use grace notes with orchestral instruments (the woodwind in this case), try to refrain from just using them wherever they sound good. There should be a purpose for it; it should be treated as a special articulation, not a default or secondary one. Overall, I enjoyed the piece and found it to be interesting.

Hedrix responds:

Thank you and I usually have the bass loud because for some reason its fine when I have headphones on, but when I take them off there is no bass
