(If you use headphones I'm sure the experience will be better :) )
This piece is called "Stand Still" and is a collab with peachymaiden! and also the fourth composition we make together :D

We made this wanting it to be a song about new beginnings. :)

Peachy made the vocals, lyrics and Cello :) I played the piano.

Hope you all like it, see you!

I love the soft piano at the beginning. It sounds very humanized too. The cello is beautiful too. The vocals fit the mood of the song perfectly. You guys have a great sense of harmony and progression. Well-structured, smooth-flowing, spacious and atmospheric, you two have clearly displayed your excellent melodic inclinations here. While it is very dynamic in nature, there is enough repetition to keep the listener grounded. The lyrics are also quite poetic here. If I had to complain about one thing, it would be the ending. It seemed to be winding down, but it then faded out the rest of the way, depriving this piece of a proper sense of conclusion IMO. The piece is mastered very loudly and I can hear all of the instruments clearly. However, it’s my impression that the piano is in danger of peaking at some points, so I’d suggest equalizing out some of the treble tones. This is a very small detail, however. Overall, this is simply fantastic work. I’m very excited about what else we’re going to see from you two for the rest of the competition. Good luck! ;D

Hi TL! :D
man thanks so much for all the compliments, it means a lot to us, i'm sure peachy will be really happy to read your review too :D
Oh yes! i totally understand about the ending, I think it maybe felt like 2 endings XD, and maybe using just one of them would've make it better :)
Thanks for the treble notes info! I think I feel like i'm learning a lot about mixing since i never checked tutorials or anything, so your help means a lot to help us grow in that area :D

I'm not judging your group this time so I'm pretty sure I'm allowed to tell you how much I love this piece!!! <3

Peachy's singing is on point! Your song makes me want to cry :(

Suggestion: use less intricate piano lines when there's singing. Like chords and stuff mostly. The song sounds a lil busy/confusing right now.

Great stuff keep it up yay

Jabicho responds:

Thanks for the suggestion!, I'll try changing to chords when there's singing, I'm sure it can sound great!
