It's amazing how much being a full time college student can make you have almost no drive to do anything else, including music.

Somehow through all my piles of school work I was able to get this track out. Simple and short, but I'm a fan of it. It came out much better than I thought it would when I started.

I like the bright piano chords at the beginning, but not necessarily the hi-hats (they were very square and didn’t add much to the texture IMO). The piece is a little slow to develop, but the cello sounds great. This is a very spacey piece...a risk, in a way. The climax at 2:28 came on a little suddenly, although the injection of energy was very cathartic after a long, slow-paced passage earlier in the piece. Solid work. I don’t hear any problems with the mixing or mastering. The instruments blend together really well. Keep it up, Papkee!


Hey dude, I finally got a moment to leave a review here (helps that I'm going to judge the ngadm too).

I don't have enough time to really leave too much detail, but here are some tips I'd primarily give:
- More stuff like the synth that comes in around 0:30. That's a great sound, and introduces things quite well. More development and variation with it would be a really neat touch.
- Your weak spot is your mixing still, unfortunately. Srsly dude, you gotta spend some time focusing on mixing or have someone do your final mixdown for you if you don't have time to. If you're working on it yourself, primary things I'd suggest would be (a) reducing mid frequencies especially on strings. They don't need to always be massively full, especially when everything else is sharing the same frequencies. Check a spectrometer to see the strongest overlap and reduce it until there's not as much overlap. Otherwise, make sure you don't have excessively strong reverb, try putting EQ before and after it to filter out naughty frequencies that don't do well.
-Endings. I think this one ended a bit too abruptly.

Those are the biggest things that stick out to me immediately. Pretty good piece. Good luck if you make it into the NGADM!

those hits sound so rad, and all the layering of tunes. good job!

i completely forgot that i had you on my favorites list; now i remember why. amazing work.

Not bad
