Well, my time management is shite, so I had to wrap it up and send it as it is. Bloodborne's soundtrack is an astonishing piece of art, and this song is...well, this is just a tribute :)

Composed for NGUAC 2018

Deep

This was a very deep tune here can't think of anything to really change on it except maybe a more climatic ending as it seemed to just cut off there or end there but as for the rest it was some really solid work and I really enjoyed the deep and emotional feel this has so very nice flavor you put into this lots of great energy here so a good piece maybe just some small effort on the ending

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
As mentioned just some more work on the ending

I like the dramatic choir sample at the beginning. The sudden cut-off at :07 wasn’t that smooth, though. Same thing with :17, although at the very least the energy kept up on the other side of the transition. The mix is a tad quiet, but also pretty clean. There’s a lot of suspense in the mood, and the string swells starting at around :50 are a nice touch. The dramatic brass hits at 1:18 really help sell the drama. There’s not a lot of melodic content in this piece, but the atmosphere is well-preserved by the near-constant choir and string chords. The descending brass line towards the end seems like a fitting B-theme. The afterthought at 2:27, probably portraying the slain sojourner on this foreign planet, is also a nice addition. The sense of suspense is great, but I can’t help but feel that you didn’t quite capitalize on the emotional qualities of the piece here. The composition might need some more ebb and flow over time to achieve that. Dynamic contrast, more dramatic phrasing, etc. Still, strong work with the sound design, progression, and mood. Keep at it, IglicaV!
