Short vertical layer composition for class.

Basic ambience layer until 0:36, then a tension layer fades in, followed by a full-on battle layer, which comes in around 1:28 as the loop starts again.

Work in progress, still a lot to fix up. I'll either delete this or (maybe) replace the file when I get it finished. There's a little audio glitch in the file, but I'm not sure what's causing it, so meh :P

Constructive criticism is always welcome. :)

Sounds great even unfinished, especially when the choir comes in. The rhythms feel natural, you did a very nice job with that. Can you tell me what software you used?

Deemo-R responds:

Ah, thanks for reminding me to put it in the description! I used Logic Pro X as the DAW for this one, which was a bit awkward as I'm not used to its layout and had to insert notes via laptop touchpad instead of a MIDI keyboard. I just recently got Omnisphere 2, so that's the majority of what you hear in the ambience & tension layers. The choir is 8dio's Requiem Pro, which I've had since mid-2015, but never uploaded any of the pieces I made that used them. The percussion is all from Impact Soundworks's Rhapsody Orchestral Percussion, which I am personally a big fan of. The couple of gong and china rubs you hear are from Lux Nox's Perc+. Everything else comes from the default Kontakt library, including the strings, brass, and harp/celeste.

Thanks for checking it out, ILG! :)

Pretty good track for a work in progress!
Can definitely feel the amount of effort put into this. Gives that good tension at the start, building up to more; giving that feeling of "lives are at stake" kinda feel of the narrative being told in this.
I get the image of a boss battle where you have to sneak or hiding from a big monster/beast kind of deal - great work!
Kinda inspires me to do something like this with orchestral vsts... I've done random orchestrals here n there but I don't think I've done something of a "tension" track like this one, so I gotta give it a go now! Cheers for the inspiration :)

Glad I could help! Definitely give it a shot, it's a lot of fun to just mock up some amibguous tension tracks. Thanks for reviewing! :D
