I like this piece. It could almost be ambient, there never really seems to be a really strong melody line, not that its a bad thing, just something to be aware of. You can decide how much you want your songs to be melody driven, the lack of a strong one, however, causes people's minds to wander a bit. 8 minutes is a little long for a dance track, but you did do a good job of keeping it from being too repetitive. I also liked your instrumentation, the only one I didn't like to much was the thing that came in at around 7:20, too much bouncing around for me. Good job.
Hey, I appreciate your feedback. The sound that comes in around 7:20 was a gated string sound I chopped up with Dover's Trance Gate.
I'm a pretty ambient kinda guy, so that's where the lack of a defined melody other than the harp came in...as for the song's length, it's debatable as to whether it could stand up the same in a reduced form, but I'll see what I can do fo you ;)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
