The dynamic range of this piece is wide - not all parts are meant to be loud, so listen at a comfortable volume! This is preferable to me, instead of compressing the levels to unrealistic dynamic consistency, which can defeat the purpose of orchestral dynamics.

Other than that, I like to let the music speak for itself, so sit back and enjoy.

Best of luck to everyone in the contest!

Wow nice

This was really good and I like the build up on this it really jumps out there from middle to the end it's a bit slow but that's something that really brings it together as well I like this and like all the quality you bring this from start to finish anyways nice work here

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
Nice work maybe some extra ambient sounds

~X~



Wow, this is an absolutely beautiful song! I am so glad to have come by it. This is a shortened version? You rarely find songs that are over five minutes long. There must be a time limit with audio submissions. It's just satisfying music.

It builds itself up so wonderfully after time. It has a great sense of wonder and awe. I agree that there's lots of range in this. It's wonderful to hear something so graceful. It's hard to keep my interest for something this long, but it worked all the way! It really is a song that just has everything.

Thanks for the awesome review! I appreciate it!

You can find the 8-minute version on my account as well to hear it in full!


Beautiful, a true work of art. DO you know the movie Atlantis? This reminds me of it in how it seems so mystical



A lovely peice this deserves every complement it has gotten.



I was literally swept away by the first minute of this song. Uh, pun not intended. I'm glad you won first place, you definitely deserved it. It slowly builds up to this beautiful piano piece which in turn transitioned to something otherworldly. Good job, and congratulations :0
