This is my submition for the NGADM finals!
Ive never spent so much time on a track, ever! MORE THAN 30 HOURS went into this track.
8 minutes of orchestral moody music. it tells a story of mystic exploring, from walking the desert badlands to discovering secret oasis coves.
I went for that kind of music that always changes, and makes a solid atmosphere without beeing in your face too much.
This is my first track like this!
I had to lower the quality a bit, hope it diddnt affect the song too much!

I worked so hard on this, so i really hope you enjoy it!

Final round! Here you are, here is your review, here is your song, at the end of the road! Does it succeed?

The Good:
-That's a really nice intro, though it's a tad slow.
-I like the unique little melodies throughout it, they work together with the instruments to create a really cool atmosphere.
-That effect at 2:19. It sounds almost like a rain stick. Really nice.
-Nice change in chording after the shift at about 2:12.
-Mixing's great, as usual.
-Your transitions were fine, and you fooled me with the outro at first - made me think it was a normal fadeout... but then it wasn't!

The Not-So-Good:
-Unfortunately, at about the 2 minute mark, it gets a bit repetitive - you've been using the same melody for a long time. I'm glad you changed it up after that, but still.
-Would have liked more of a tune throughout 2:58-422. While initially the chords are fine, it really needs a stronger melody afterwards.
-With a song this long, it really needs a change in the constant 4/4-ness. There are other time signatures, like 3/4 or 7/8, or if you want to get funky, do something like 5/4 or 11/8, or even 15/16!
-Feels like you always have something playing on each beat. Not the best thing for an entire song.
-Alright, by the 6-minute mark, it's definitely feeling very repetitive - this is partially due to the constant note on each beat, but also due to your tendency to hold onto a single tune for too long - it also seems to get a bit 'meandering', I'd have liked it if you kept a bit more of a constant tune so I had something more to recognize other than just instruments/percussion.

Overall: Wow, you REALLY went away from your usual style on this one. ...and made it 8 minutes long to boot. I'm impressed - you have successfully tried out a new style. Good work! 8.5/10

You're on my favorites list for a reason. Thank you for this awesome track. Lot's of feeling, and story in the track, great listen. Really got the feeling of a wanderer, or traveler during the listen. Amazing as always. Thanks!

I'm not usually into this kind of music, but this is just so awesome! I can just imagine this going into a game like Fallout NV. Great job, and good luck in NGADM!
