Here's the sorta-kinda continuation of my previous song -The Trader's Way. I was in a bit of a writers-block rut all over winter, but now that spring is here I'm getting back in the swing of things. Gotta brush up on my chops for the audio deathmatch after all.

I like the echo-y mallet instrument at the beginning and the evocative melodies. The flute at :47 is a great way of progressing the piece, although once the strings come in the mix sounds a tad indistinct - maybe I just wanted the bass notes to be a bit crisper, is all. The bridge at around 1:45 really takes the piece in a more languid, romantic-sounding direction, which is a nice element of structural contrast before the final climax. I think the mix gets a bit overwhelmed towards the end, too - I think I wanted to hear less reverb overall and more punch to the drums. Still, the emotional appeal of the outro is really nice, and overall the composition and sound design work here outweigh my concerns with the mixing. Keep at it, Papkee! ^^

This is epic, getting some high fantasy vibes for sure.

Very beautiful! Really enjoyed this track man, the subtle piano that plays at around 1:50 definitely puts you in a meditative state, feels very nostalgic and then the stunning soundcape you bring at 3:00 is absolutely breathtaking, feels very rich and full of life!

Bravo maestro!
