This is my submission for the Round of 64 NGADM 2017! I hope it makes it through!
I got the idea from a book I read a few weeks ago, the book being "The Salamander Club", and a part of the story is developed inside of a weird city, founded by the antiscientists.

I. "Descent" (00:02-01:18): It starts with a piano melody, and thoughout the movement, more instruments are added to accompany the piano. My intention was to give this movement a calm yet unsettling progression, which goes on repeating time after time, this to represent the feeling of being inside of a submarine, not knowing what to expect.
II. "Discovery" (01:19-01:51): At this point, the melody is the same, but there's a chorus singing in a way to show amazement of the things that are discovered on the way down to the citadel, and then there's calm and everything mutes.
III. "The City" (01:52-02:59): Here everything feels quiet and pleasant, there's nothing disturbing anymore, and the main theme is repeated many times by different solo instruments, and a cathedral organ is added to the whole equation.

I like the emotional piano at the beginning. Tiny complaint: I think you want the note lengths to be as long as possible with that piano to facilitate flow and atmosphere. I was just a little turned off by the piano cutting off at :04 and :13. But that’s a little picky. I like the string entrance at :23. You have a strong sense of harmony and progression, and I like how the piano slowly takes over again at around 1:10. I think some stronger mastering at 1:19 could really help you. Several of the instruments sound a little indistinct there, most notably the piano. You may have needed some stricter equalization in general. The instruments blend well together, though. As beautiful as this piece is, there’s also not a ton of coherence in the structure. Your orchestral samples are pretty good, although I can still tell they’re fake because of the uniform vibrato. Overall, this is a strong piece. I love the emotion and progression. Keep it up, Eviladrianin! :)

8.75/10

nice, peaceful cinematic piece! could do with a little less reverb perhaps and more bass content, but other than that it's very nice. :)

This is the perfect background music for dialogue! Very nice.
It fits the description perfectly. Good imagination.

The music sounds pretty professionally mixed.
Keep up the good work.
