WOW! I've been working on this one for almost 2 months now, really trying to get this style right. I still have lots to work on in trying to mix orchestral stuff, but hopefully you enjoy this still ;P

I like the cute, dreamy instruments and the militaristic percussion. The rhythm at the transition at :20 was a bit bizarre. It was hard to tell where the downbeat fell until about :25. The strings are really nice, although I think the kick has a bit too much sub-bass for a piece like this. The melodic content is beautiful, and the injection of emotion at the 2-minute mark was a nice touch. This piece actually reminds me a lot of some of Waterflame’s older tracks, back when he used to do more orchestral-sounding stuff. That said, I think the continuous energy of the piece warrants some structural relief at some point, either via an atmospheric bridge or more minimal breakdown or something. You still give the piece a nice sense of climax towards the end with the last major phrase at 3:36, although I’m not sure it sounded quite conclusive enough for me. Still, great work with the sound design, mixing, melodies, and flow of this piece. Keep up the good work, Hyenaedon! ^_^

I'm seeing the intro sequence of something depicting the morning of a cartoonish videogamey town.
Camera follows the protagonist, sometimes moving to a secondary town-related element from the backdrop, then returns on the main character.

Great composition, progression and atmosphere!

This is really nice, ite makes me think of waterflame's melodies in a good way c:
The sounds are pretty cool as well
Good work !
