Short vertical layer composition for class.

Basic ambience layer until 0:36, then a tension layer fades in, followed by a full-on battle layer, which comes in around 1:28 as the loop starts again.

Work in progress, still a lot to fix up. I'll either delete this or (maybe) replace the file when I get it finished. There's a little audio glitch in the file, but I'm not sure what's causing it, so meh :P

Constructive criticism is always welcome. :)

Logic Pro X (DAW)
Omnisphere 2

If I hadn't read the description, I wouldn't even think this sounded unfinished. It's so nice to hear your music. You're super talented.

You're far too kind, sir. Thank you for the words! I believe I've oversold how much of a work-in-progress this short piece was... is, actually. I had small things I wanted to tweak, and perhaps change a few of the instruments when I had the chance. However, I never managed to get that done over the last semester, so I'm debating whether it's worth putting time into now. It seems to be fine as it is, all things considered. :)

Sounds great even unfinished, especially when the choir comes in. The rhythms feel natural, you did a very nice job with that. Can you tell me what software you used?

Deemo-R responds:

Ah, thanks for reminding me to put it in the description! I used Logic Pro X as the DAW for this one, which was a bit awkward as I'm not used to its layout and had to insert notes via laptop touchpad instead of a MIDI keyboard. I just recently got Omnisphere 2, so that's the majority of what you hear in the ambience & tension layers. The choir is 8dio's Requiem Pro, which I've had since mid-2015, but never uploaded any of the pieces I made that used them. The percussion is all from Impact Soundworks's Rhapsody Orchestral Percussion, which I am personally a big fan of. The couple of gong and china rubs you hear are from Lux Nox's Perc+. Everything else comes from the default Kontakt library, including the strings, brass, and harp/celeste.

Thanks for checking it out, ILG! :)

Pretty good track for a work in progress!
Can definitely feel the amount of effort put into this. Gives that good tension at the start, building up to more; giving that feeling of "lives are at stake" kinda feel of the narrative being told in this.
I get the image of a boss battle where you have to sneak or hiding from a big monster/beast kind of deal - great work!
Kinda inspires me to do something like this with orchestral vsts... I've done random orchestrals here n there but I don't think I've done something of a "tension" track like this one, so I gotta give it a go now! Cheers for the inspiration :)

Glad I could help! Definitely give it a shot, it's a lot of fun to just mock up some amibguous tension tracks. Thanks for reviewing! :D
