You created a calm and reflective atmosphere from the get-go with this track which immediately puts the listener into the story you are telling. The context comes to life as it would on a screen. It’s beautifully put together and works on its own. It evolves into a question and a quest for something more but the whole while the progression is natural and the transitions don’t leave the listener behind.
This is masterful work.
Maybe this style of music has been done before, it’s difficult to reinvent the wheel. Maybe I was being mean taking a point away from composition for this, I don’t know. I still feel you managed to make something meaningful and heartfelt, the most poignant moment for me was around 1:40 where it swells and falls again after. From this moment I could tell it was going somewhere beyond this little world you had created and I was satisfied when it picked up at the end.
