This is an NGADM Round 1 review.
That was quite a listen! You've got a pretty straightforward but well-developed atmosphere from the start, that slowly but surely evolves into something much more jumpy and exciting. You have a good grasp on composition and instrumentation, making this lovely to listen to. What's more, your sounds are high-quality and you mix them well too (some of the string passages could do with sounding a bit warmer but that's a minor complaint). And to my delight, you make excellent use of dynamics. The track never really turns into something "epic" or fortissimo, so to speak, but you balance your dynamics just right, and consequently your track isn't just enjoyable to listen to, but can even tell a story. Definitely the right way to go with a piece in this genre.
Regrettably, what I'm really not a big fan of is the pacing. This is a long track, clocking at 5 minutes, and I felt like a lot of sections overstayed their welcome, especially when the bowed instrument (violin, I think) comes in, playing melodies that don't have that much variety. In fact, most of the melodies could do with being a bit more varied. This caused the track to occasionally and unfortunately fall into the trap of being boring, especially when you couple the slow pacing with the fact that you're using a pretty overused chord progression. Some transitions, mainly 0:32 and 4:44, were too abrupt (although I love how you ended the track). Lastly, the percussion was alright, but I was hoping for something less boomy and more exciting/fitting for the more upbeat moments.
You've got a great track here which I really enjoyed, despite it getting a bit boring at times and having some smaller issues here and there.
