I first started this song 7 months ago and sort of neglected it for most of that time. This song feels has a bit of inspiration from Mario Odyssey near the start and botw with the piano chords, but is mostly inspired by the landscapes and environment of Mushishi.

First off, from listening straight away you hear a super clear and wide stereo image with everything in its correct place. Bass centered, percussive instruments to the sides - not only makes the track manage to be louder than if everything was centered together, but fills it out too. Everything sounds EQ'd perfectly, no nasty resonances or audible artifacts. Introduction of the string instruments around 0:43 was tastefully done, they blended into view really well. The details in the high end frequencies are the unsung star of the show on this piece, adding that sense of ''magic'' and mystery that I imagine you would have been trying to capture during the creative process. They're not in your face, but you'd miss them if they weren't there. The piano trill was a beautiful way to end the piece, very well executed.

For me, the only thing missing is a drum track - although i have noted that this is labelled up as cinematic. I feel like this needs a drum track because of the constant rythm throughout making it possible to nod your head to and predict - drums, even as subtle as a shaker or tambourine, would accentuate this effect. In another aspect, deep drum rolls themselves could be effective to use for transitions to different sections.

Great work!

Sounds good. Game ready.
