I've been negligent again, leaving things for the last minute. Sadly I couldn't record my irish whistle as much as I wanted since I've got one terribly hurt finger and no time, but I'm still satisfied with how it turned out.

I didn't know you played Irish whistle! You play it gorgeously - I hope to hear your whistle playing more often!

I love the Celtic vibe this piece has. When the whistle comes in at :10, it sounds a bit more energy-driven, as compared to the majestic and calm piano sound. I would suggest using some drums to channel the energy here a bit more. That said, the progression of this is quite good. Some of the instruments, like the one at :26, seem to come out of nowhere a bit, though. Again, drums would help with these transitions IMO. The ending is a bit inconclusive, but if you had wrapped the remainder when you exported it, it would probably make a pretty good loop. Structurally, I wouldn't really regard this as a complete piece, and as a stand-alone piece it's kind of lacking in various elements of contrast and development (although it's extremely hard to incorporate those components in a 1-minute track!). Still, the ideas here needed to be expanded upon more. It's a cool idea for a piece, but I really would've liked to see you do more with it. I understand that you were pressed for time and that your finger was injured, but I'm afraid I can't take that into account when scoring you. I hope you get the chance to clean this up some day, because I'm excited to see what you would come up with! Keep at it, SilverPoyozo. ;)


this should a Final Fantasy soundtrack, love this, really cheery and well made, definantly sounds like you were near a shore market or on a boat, dope, best of luck in the competition.

I hate to bring this up last minute, but within the rules it says the songs need to be at least 2 minutes ): Double check but yea you should have time depending on how this was made. BUT I LOVE THIS
