This piece has a LOT of potential. Listening to the tonal atmospheres you have going on, it reminds me a little of something that might come out of a Halo battle scene, with the choral samples. The strings could have used a bit of temperament - they are a little harsher in some areas than I would expect, and they don't have much of a varying volume. Still, good choice on the melodies and the different styles within the song. I would mess around with the velocity on the strings.
Truly, I enjoyed it, overall, and it would be a great addition to any tense scenario. Looking forward to listen to your other music. ^__^
Oh yes, I have to agree, because I think the same thing when I listen to this song. I couldn't polish it, because my hard drive broke, but I wasn't sure if I'll make it to the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch. Probably you'll like my new song, that I'll publish as soon as I will be able to finish it : ) Thank you very much for your review!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
