Inspired by Mike Yakovlev's "WANT" piece:

Very different from what I've submitted here before but this is closer to the sound I tend to make these days.

Thank you for listening

The praises and complaints I have to offer have already been said, aside from a slightly dry piano. Atmospherically, this is a very pleasing piece. I could have gone with a little more happening around 2:10 than simply restating the same melodic idea. It feels almost artificially drawn out, even with that feel of wonderment and exploration. What's going on at 2:57 should have been going on an entire phrase ago! Very nice work, however. I thoroughly enjoyed.

This is a really pretty piece! I love ambient and atmospheric music, and you managed to get it just right!
Good luck in the competition ^ ^

This reminds me of the ambient music in Skyrim, that beautiful feeling you get when venturing out to distant unfamiliar vibrant lands, that feeling of exploration of the unknown, and has a "dark" feeling ...this somehow gives vibes of light and darkness, such as the picture that inspired it. Very fitting to the picture! It sounds like the essence of inner echoes of a cave system, in a sense too.

Very nice touch with the percussion and bass. I could see this in a game. The snare sounds like rocks falling or footsteps....very creative! I wish the drums came in a little sooner and lasted a little longer, but this is very nice. Great job!

AetherNG responds:

Thank you for the kind words sir, It's always a joy hearing how others interpret my work. I was tempted to have the drums introduced earlier and last a little longer with more variation over time but i didn't want to exceed 6 minutes and that would have been too easy to do with a track like this.

Thank you for the review :)
