I know it's orchestra but it's not just orchestra.

Honestly, this isn't what I imagined when I was going to do something that's based on the 5 zones of the ocean. But pretty much you get the idea here right? Also a bit of warning from the part where the notes are all over the place. The ambient part specifically but I dunno if I overdid stuff again. The ocean is terrifying

it would appear that we're now up against each other in round 2 of NGADM! So I came here to check out your music and I though, why not leave a little review?

I think the crash/high-hat percussion you use in the first section is a bit too loud. It keeps taking my attention away from the otherwise lovely sounding music! at 0:56 to 1:30 i'm really missing some reverb. Everything sounds too dry in my opinion. Especially string instruments can benefit from some heavy reverb. Generally I think this track would benefit from more reverb in general! At 1:30 the track changes completely and it feels quite natural! Really good job! I love how spooky it suddenly gets at 2:25! Only thing I can really says is the white noise in the background is too loud. I'm unsure of how I feel about the music completely fading out at 3:00. I think some sound(s) should be left hanging. Like, it feels a little bit disjointed. The last section is a nice variation of the beginning. The only complaint I have is that the violin is panned to the left and there's nothing to (noticeably) fill that space on the right. The ending is very cool and epic!

Overall this is some lovely sounding music! I'm looking forward to hearing what you bring to the table in round 2!!

Likely my favourite submission I've judged from Round 1 of NGADM '21, with the middle section being a real highlight for me. While some of the orchestral sections are a little cheap sounding, what you include here (with a CONCEPT as well) makes up for that. Stellar work

Great job on the track! The dulcimer was super nice and the 3 act structure really gave some cool contrast. ^_^

I actually really like the second ambient section, gave sone great breathing room, and your use of hemiolas gave some nice material for demonstrating different approaches to composing for "oceanic themes"
