It's been a loooong time since my last upload. I've been being super indecisive about whether or not to audition for NGADM and if I do what to audition with. This is a piece I had put together for a pitch for a video game. Some of the transitions could be a cleaner but I really like the overall sensation I get from it. So here goes!

I really like the beginning of the song, however the ending of it feels like an entirely different song. I think that may have to do with the lack of transition. Regardless, this is a extraordinary ambient/soother.

I like the atmosphere at the beginning. The cello sample at :15 sounds really fake, though. The uniform vibrato and timbre gave it away right off the bat. I like the guitar instrument at :40 a lot better, though - in a way, the guitar fits the character of the piece better anyway. The melodic content is beautiful here, but the progression is very slow. I was waiting for a big climax or injection of energy or something to disrupt the tranquility. Not that your piece can’t be tranquil, but it definitely needs more structural variety and shape than this. This piece has a sort of continuity that, if you’re not careful, will fail to keep your listener engaged after a while. You seem to be taking the piece in a very different direction at 2:06, but I think you needed a smoother transition there. Overall, the mixing and mastering were pretty good, but I think you could’ve made the kick a little clearer. The texture does thicken a little towards the end, giving the piece some degree of climax, although you also don’t really address the themes of the first couple of minutes very well during that climax, which gave this piece a bit of incoherence. Still, the atmosphere is killer, and you have a great sense of melody and harmony. Keep up the good work, man! ;)
