Official AIM Review!
First off, piece is super-duper quiet. Recommend bringing it up some. The up side to this is, nothing distorting, lots of dynamic range. I know classical/filmscore is a genre that relies heavily on dynamic contrast, but I say that it could probably benefit from some sort of compression, notably multiband. Occasionally I find myself wishing for airy highs that just aren't very present in the mix. Rather than EQ'ing these into each instrument and risk sounding overly sibilant one might try applying a little air with a multiband compressor. That way the air is there when you need it, but it never exceeds a certain threshold.
I would probably recommend some more tempered velocity on your chime samples. Repetitions of the same note sounded fairly inauthentic, as did some of your horns and choir.
I will say, great job with those timpanis. Kept things flowing. I did find myself wishing for a roll or two.
Our final section and outro was also well-handled. Despite most progression relying on the adding and subtracting of instruments or the occasional flourish, I enjoyed the piece.
Thanks for turning out to this year's competition!
