I wrote this a long time ago and recently re-orchestrated it to my current sound library.

Sounds like someone likes John Williams, as my buddy Chris said below. ;)

Sounds great! I think I've heard of you before indeed...

I just wish you used reverb... those trumpet staccatos are so dry (and almost everything else for that matter)! The mix doesn't sound very convincing because of the lack of reverb. Also, the area around 2:00 is too quiet to be the climax. Consider building up more around then- trombones doing some sort of counter-melody to what else is going on and such.

The flute melody at 0:57- instead of doubling on glock/celesta, have glock/celesta do arpeggios perhaps.

Consider using timpani (I hear a tiny bit of it only) and more bass in this. It feels kinda empty in that range). Another thing I felt was missing was high strings.

The brass work around 1:35 on is strange- the trombones are too quiet and the call-and-answer feels unbalanced. Maybe consider bringing in some strings.

There are some great ideas in this, you should consider working more on building what goes AROUND those ideas- counter melodies, motion of the piece, so the flow is a bit nicer. Also, consider playing around with more key changes. Great idea for climaxes. ;)

Above all, keep compos(ed/ing)!

Well done! The orchestration sounds quite good - nice brass action and also the woodwind runs work really fine :D I really appreciate that the whole piece sounds full but absolutely transparent - every detail can be heared. I have written a cinematic orchestrated piece 1 week ago, too, but the mixing was the main problem for me. Did you use spaces or something? The orchestration and also the composition itself is very solid in my oppinion and seems to be quite professional - a little bit williams - inspired (which i also really liked, especially the woodwinds. Maybe some harp transitions would have been cool, too).

Keep up the great work! 5/5 and glad to follow you!

Another amazing piece. I love it. Exciting and definitely would fit a sci fi space adventure
