This is an NGADM 2015 review.

So this is pretty nice, pretty chill. You have some nice ideas in there, some good structure and good production. Everything is clear and the mood/intention is clear. Obviously the main issue is that this piece is really short, and sounds like a snippet or a demo of a larger song. Because it has no major structural components, no percussion and only about 3-4 instruments most of the time, there isn't that much to talk about.

As taintedlogic mentioned, this sounds like something with a good deal of potential, though. I hope you keep working on it!

I love the smooth, jazzy feel this has. I admire your sense of harmony and progression (or what little of it there is here). I don’t think that you provided enough content for me to be able to judge you properly. I’m sorry. This clearly isn’t a structurally complete piece, and you know it. The ending cuts off very suddenly; it doesn’t even loop. It sounds like the main menu music for a videogame instead of an engaging, stand-alone piece. The instruments were cool, the production quality is fine, and there isn’t really anything wrong with the content of the piece itself. However, I can’t analyze how well you’ve structured the piece because, as you acknowledge, it’s a WIP, and you barely even reach the point of needing a transition, so I can’t really analyze your transitory content either. There are some good ideas here, but they need to be fleshed out a lot more (and you know this! I’m sorry!). A lot of what I look for in a piece is related to the structural and/or transitory compositional content, and I’m afraid I can’t take into consideration that this piece is a WIP. I hope you keep working on this after the competition, though, because it does have some strong potential, but as for now I hope this review helped. Keep at it, man. ;)
