Skillfully crafted and masterful.
I don't throw out a whole lot of 10's (I'm more of a 6-8 kinda guy) but this one floored me with its sheer quality. in fact, this will be the third song I have ever reviewed as a 10/10, so that says something.
This piece exudes a total calmness, a total show of control over the material, a total relaxation and effortlessness that transposes itself into a wonderful and beautiful journey of sound that few Audio Portal composers can hope to attain to. But you were able to do it here.
The tones and harmonies are varied and rich, the melody inspired, and the instruments feel greater than they are. As I listened, I was sometimes forgetting that I was only hearing four woodwinds, as your work made it sound as if an orchestra was playing, another stroke of a master.
I cannot not say enough good things about this piece, and I can find no flaw, musically or production wise. Everything is just crystal clear and beautiful.
I eagerly await the release of the second part, and you have duly impressed me. Great job, and keep up the fantastic work.
