I've not composed in four months, have I? Let's change that.

Here's the labor of several hours at a piano and a few more at a computer. Enjoy, review, and you'll get cookies. Probably.

Must. Review. Now.

The Good:
-The piano playing at the beginning is fairly good, I like how you change the velocity to make it a bit more realistic. Either that or you're playing the arpeggios in with a midi keyboard, but I doubt that because of the perfect rhythm.
-There's no clipping in your mix, which is pretty darn nice. No clipping distortion is pretty good.
-The deep bassy strings at about 1:45 sounds really awesome, there's a great "thump" along with the gong which hits very well.
-I like the use of 12/8 time. I normally use it, though it's more for cool grooves.
-Composition is fine. Nice simple ABA with a few variations that make it more dramatic. Nothing wrong there aside from the ending.

The Not-So-Good:
-The instant the strings came in, the backing piano arpeggios just died behind them. This happened with the melody soon as well.
-Those horns sound so cheesy, it's VERY obvious they're fake.
-Everything gets very muddy at about 2:35 as well. Even with no clipping, all the instruments should be clear and not be buried.
-Please don't just cut out in the middle of a melody on the ending. x.x At least have a resolving note or chord.

Overall: It seems like you've got mastering down, but you need to have a good mix as well! Composition-wise, I don't have too much to comment on. You've definitely got the cinematic feel down (you can put it in that category now!).

That's all I've got for you. You've definitely improved - the mix is the biggest issue right now. :) Good luck!

This is great! What are you using for strings?

It's called Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra. It's free and probably the best free library around.

This is very breathtaking. :) I adored the piano. Didn't expect the Orchestral parts though. Added a nice touch to it though. :) 10/10 5/5

I adore beautiful piano work. Thank you.
This is the first time I've heard your music and I adore it.
Thank you, I need to stop typing and just listen.
