Okay, I know it sounds repetitive, but bear with us for a minute... The thing I love about the minimalist school of composition is that while it sounds lousy when you're paying attention to it, it's the greatest background music ever. The process on this song was, essentially, making a track, coming up with a pattern and developing the pattern over the whole song. I did this completely on Garage band, so if you have any suggestions or complaints, or would like to use this in a game or movie, just let me know what changes you want and I'll happily make them. Thanks so much for listening!

Oh boy, this IS repetitive.

Well, since I give you a not so decent grade of 5/10, I shall try to help you with some 'constructive criticism'.

1. The repetition is okay for the beginning, but try to limit them down to 2 or 3 times instead of just adding a different note to the piano repetitions after about 5 repetitions.

2. Speed up the pace in the complexity of the note pattern. The melody you have is good, but you take a good 45 seconds to bring the entirety of it into the song. A good 45 seconds that could make or break the song.

3.Make the organs a more vital role into the song, and lessen the chimes. The chimes can be a little harsh on the ears after a while if you have a headset on, and the organs could blend things together much better.

4. Add a slight reverb to the piano, and try to spice things up by adding a little strum of guitar inbetween places, but don't overdo it, as that could ruin the whole 'puzzle' aspect to it.

~Hope this helps, I'm experimenting with Garage Band as well.~

Thanks for the criticism. I'll try moving the Glockenspiel line to a less grating instrument, and also, would adding more layers lessen the monotony? Thanks.
