Here's little something I made in two days.

Been playing Hollow Knight for a while and got inspired.
Can look at it as an alternate menu theme.

Haven't been posting a lot, since I got some health issues + I'm still searching for a job.

One song that I'm still working on was planned for the middle of this month, but I guess it will have to wait couple of weeks more.

Hope you enjoy it, eventhough it's different than the usual stuff. :>

Another cool short piece! I like the emotional appeal of this one. That piano has a really bright tone to it that's really soothing. All of the rolled chords and spaciousness of the texture are pleasant to the ear, and I like the somewhat dark ambient sounds that come in towards the middle of the piece. Compositionally, it's a bit simplistic, but it has this great inward and ponderous tone to it that I really like. Strong work! Keep it up, EndK. ^_^

Much thanks for the review.
I'm glad you enojoyed it! :)

The composition is lovely and very emotional. I really like the background instrumentation. That said, the instruments themselves sound a bit uncanny to me; they're not blatantly midi-sounding, but they don't sound very expressive either. There is a lot of emotion in this song thanks to the composition, but I think there's opportunity to enhance the emotion further by using more expressive instruments. I think a celeste could work well here; if you have kontakt, then you should already have a decent one.

endKmusic responds:

Yeah, totally get what you're saying.
Was thinking about Kontakt while I was composing this one and had the same thought.
Thanks for the review, I agree with everything you said.
Glad you dig the composition. :)
