I notice the music starts out with sad sort of sound. (Obviously, right?) Those secondary piano notes are more spaced out, so it does start off with a feeling of distance. Steady tempo, the notes begin to get a bit more dramatic as it goes which is interesting. Then there’s slight burst with strong backing melody. Maybe that represents some sort of hope? It begins to quiet again, but there is a tenderness to that segment, and it sounds nice. It returns to something more like what we had initially, but with this more “echo” effect to it. It seamlessly segues into the actual beginning which I think is an appealing effect.
From what I can tell, you’re quite the fan of Yoko Shimomura’s work. It shows throughout this piece and I think you did quite a good job emulating her work while still putting a slight twist into your own composition.
Got to admit that I am not a musician at all, but I think what you’ve done sounds fairly pleasant despite the bittersweet tone you’ve gone for. I suppose I should study sound mixing and music theory to give you a better critique next time.
Overall, a nice sounding composition. Keep up the good work.
