Made for the NGAUC 2015 Knock-out round.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like the percussion at the beginning. It sounds almost tribal and exotic rather than jazzy. I like the strings, and I think you combine pizzicato-y and legato sounds very well to create a full texture here. I would've liked to see it progress a bit faster, but I love the guitar melody at 1:05. It has an air of mystery about it that really helped establish the mood of this piece. I liked the sense of structural relief that the part at 2:01 offered, and the string solo at 2:12 was really cool. However, it was kind of the only thing going on until 2:40. I wish you had used some other harmonies instead of reverb to fill the space in the mix at times. I think it wouldn't hurt to dial back your reverb a bit, too. That might also help you master this track more cleanly. The ending was pretty interesting, although I think you could've played up the mystery there just a tiny bit more if you added a volume automation on the percussion and brought it back to meet that treble-range pad. But that's a pretty tiny detail. This is a pretty unique and creative piece. The mixing and mastering might need some tweaking, but other than that this is solid work! Keep at it, man. ;)
