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. ;)
