Interesting piece of music, quite unusual. It creates a really unique atmosphere. Reminds me a bit of starfox on the Gamecube because of the (djembe?). The harp's melody is nice even if the playing isn't very natural, it's very pretty and keeps the listener interested. I enjoyed it overall, definitely worth the 4 stars I'm giving it.
Negatives now. This is constructive criticism so don't take it the wrong way. ;)
The first half needed a little more balance in my view (stereo spectrum). It was heavy on the right because of the percussion so would have benefited from the harp being on the left a bit.
At 1:41 the panning swaps from right to centre very quickly and that creates an odd sensation, you should watch out for things like that when using automation.
The first half of the song doesn't gel well with the 2nd half well in my opinion. I feel the transition is too sudden and the strings don't sound all that natural either.
Good job, I look forward to more!
