I did not have an agenda with this song, no themes or images really came to mind while making it. Essentially I just wanted to practice some mixing and I ended up liking the project, so I decided to turn it into a full song. I think it would perhaps fit best as a menu theme, or even a credits theme for any sort of game. :)

Moody now are we? ;)
Like people have said, I definitely see this as "credits music", that would be perfect for it, a closing statement on a good game or film.
To help out, I'll pinpoint mix issues:
1:08 the string sounds don't fit the rest very well. You have two solutions, either brighten the whole piece up slightly (except those strings) or dampen the staccatos a bit. I think a mix of both would be best.
The drums could use a little more "snap" to them. Right now the snare is a little flat, you could make it cut a little more and that would go a long way to putting life into the piece.

Over all I really liked this, good job!

Not quite sure what you mean by moody haha! :)

I really appreciate the advice, it's always great to hear another perspective. I'll be sure to liven up the song a little more by adding some 'snap' to the snares, and by 'brightening' up the the song overall. Thanks for pointing these things out man.

It's perfect for credits.
Creativity happens every once and a while, eh?
conorstrejcek stole my words X3

Anyway, great song!

This is really nice ambiance. The moments of floating with the synth lead and background drums makes a really nice effect. As conorstrejcek already said, varying the drums with some really nice fills would've made a whole world of difference to the effect of the song and the overall greatness. As well, as a personal distaste, I find the pad in the background and some other harmonic parts just seem really muggy and dissonant at times.

The message could not be any clearer. I really need to work on my percussion and the mixing of the 'background' instruments. I always tend to go the safe route and lay a rather simple pattern down instead of exploring the possibilities. I'll be sure to broaden my knowledge on this portion of my arrangements, that's for sure!

Thanks for listening! I appreciate the feedback. :)

Really loved this. You have some really nice ideas.

Some things you could try for next time:

1. I think you should vary the drums more. Right you have basically two different beat patterns, and you only switch to one of them for a short time. Drum tracks are one of the most commonly overlooked parts of pattern based music, and taking the time to make it unique can really add a lot to your piece.

2. You can try varying your melody more -- this one is really your choice though. For credits music it's probably good the way it is, but there are a lot of sections that don't seem to be moving anywhere because they don't have a strong melody. I'm not saying every section of your piece has to have a soaring melody, but adding in some melodic elements in some places could help some.

Altogether though, really cool, and I saw it as more of a credits theme myself.

I couldn't agree with you more. I am terrible at coming up with unique percussion patterns, so I'll definitely work on that!

Essentially, this song is an experimental mixing session at best haha! I could definitely have put more emphasis on the melody, though usually most of my songs contain a strong melody (or at least I think so, so perhaps this is a saving grace of sorts :) ).

I really appreciate you taking the time to listen! Have a good one! :)
