I like the somber mood at the beginning. Those string samples sound very romantic, almost in an over-the-top Hollywood sort of way...I’m a little ambivalent about them. The harmonies really emphasize the 1-and-2-and- pulse of the piece, but I would’ve liked to see you add some more space to the texture at some point in the piece. That said, the mood and atmosphere of the piece really won me over here. You have a great sense of melody, and the piece’s oscillation between more and less energetic was very effective. Good job!
