Finally I was able to get something out. Man, that's gotta be a new record: three months of writers block.

Anyway I rewatched all of Avatar and I was inspired to make this. Damn that's a good show.


I like the sense of atmosphere at the beginning. The bird sounds and crickets fit the tranquil tone of the piece well. It’s a little slow to develop, but by the time those warm strings come in at around :50, there’s a captivating mood to this piece. Nice job offering some structural relief at 1:34, too. You have a great sense of tonality and harmony. The balance and mixing are also pretty strong here. I love how the Far East-sounding plucked strings support the woodwinds at 1:34. The piece has an excellent sense of climax at 2:03. You’ve done an excellent job with melodic development here, as well as maximizing the emotion through dynamic contrast and the like. If I had to complain about something mastering-wise, it’s probably that the plucked strings are fighting to stay afloat at 2:03. Compositionally, you might’ve been able to do more with the percussion besides using it to channel the energy through transitional content...but that’s a tiny detail. Overall, this is a fantastic piece. You did a great job of making it come full-circle, too, even though there’s a ton of variety in this piece. The instrumentation is superb, the melodies are engrossing, and it has a great sense of full texture and flow. For God’s sake, keep up the great work! ;D


not sure if many people would consider this classical, but it is and I enjoyed it.

I love this song. It's just that simple. This song is amazing. It's so soothing, just really, really, REALLY good. I love the feel of it. Good work.
