A dark, ominous piece of cinematic music, depicting the search for a lost person

Ok, I'm only giving quickish reviews to a couple tracks since this is the first round but man I really wanted to say something. I loved this from about 0:55 onwards. Before that... the listless piano melody kinda took a bit away from the initial atmosphere. It felt like you were trying a bit too hard to settle that mood, do you know what I mean? If the melody itself were a bit more minimal and choicier with the notes, it would have fit better with the mood you were trying to set. Otherwise the rest was done succinctly, very nice work. Good luck in the contest, looking forward to hearing your future work :)

Yeah I get what you mean about the melody, maybe some better mixing would have made it blend better. It is live-improv over a certain set of notes, I did so to try and reflect the indeterminacy and tension of e.g. a drama movie scene. If I removed the piano all together it would probably be a little too minimal, at least without any visuals to support it. I appreciate your comment, it is always nice to hear other people views on stuff like this, so that I can improve my compositional judgement in the future ;)

I like it after 1 minute this is going to be my song I am going to fall asleep to great job.
