It was a very strange and interesting piece IAmMark, it caught me into his fine story RIGHT away. I nearly fell into a coma, just falling back more and more into the song, letting it wash over me. Wonderful stuff.

There were quite a few interesting pads and synths being used here, and they all seemed to flow really well together.

This is where you lost quite a few points IamMark, when that plucky synth comes in, and picks up volume, there is a fair amount of distortion. I listen to all the songs on headphones, as most people who put songs on their MP3 players would ;).

The effort is there, the subtle tones, the sweeping song, all proves it. I have no doubt in my mind, that you have put in quite a bit of effort in this piece. Many thanks for doing so.

This was I believe you strongest point with Originality. The melody was simple, yet intensely captivating! You used the same melody in the background, to serve as a constant familiar touch for the listener, and this pays off rather well.

Overall impression on me:
Well use of the pan on those sound effects, most of the time I feel that pan distracts a listener, but with this, there is a gentle transition from one ear to the other. The sound effects are themselves rather quiet, and I believe this is what made them pannable. Loud noises being panned are just way too distracting.

The title fits rather well, I got a very depressing, very subtle tone in this piece. I abslutely loved the image, and thats why I gave you + 2 to the score.

The choice of instrumentation were also good, it all fit together.

Now don't take this suggestion too seriously, I am a classical nutcase, so I keep hearing this song with a nice viola singing with it. Adding some more foundation and flavour. Again however, thats probably just me, don't take it seriously ^^.

Great stuff IamMark, thank you for joining the contest, and giving us this piece!
