The instrumentation and square rhythm of the beginning combines to give off a kind of regal vibe. I think you may have overdone the reverb a bit. The piece has a nice flow, but I don’t think you vary the dynamics or articulation often enough to keep me engaged. I did like the mood of the piece, though, especially the 3rd movement. The movements themselves are all quite short - perhaps you should flesh them out a little more. Otherwise, the structure and musicality of the piece is a little hard-to-follow. Still, my biggest worry is that you haven’t varied the energy, expression, etc. enough to carve some shape into the piece. Without that variation, the piece doesn’t have the same sense of direction and form that solo instrument pieces usually capitalize on for engagement. It was a neat idea to use a clavinet solo for the audition, but unfortunately I’m not sure your risks paid off. Keep at it, my friend!

5.5/10

All of them fair points.
Thanks a lot for your detailed review.
Looking at it in retrospective I realize I made a terrible track choice for the NGADM auditons.
No better way to learn than screwing up.

A very thoughtful piece. I can offer no critique. However, to answer your question, I can say, yes, I have. It lead me to wonder how many people had been born. Upon a quick search, science estimates 108 billion or so, but that's probably horribly wrong.

Thanks for listening.
That number sounds indeed a bit hard to believe. Population counts are something way too modern, and archives are even more.

Reminds of something you would hear in Final Fantasy, or an RPG. Nice.
