I like the tranquility and bright tone at the beginning. I think the atmosphere could’ve been a bit richer with some sort of legato drone or something to fill out the texture. Right now, it’s very minimal. The mix is also very quiet, and the piece lacks structural completeness. The mood and harmonies are great, but I’d also like to see you take some more risks compositionally and create a stronger sense of direction with the arrangement. Overall, this is lovely work, but it needs more dynamism and structural contrast to scratch all my itches. Keep at it, AliceKasaan! :)

This is a very simple, natural piece. Not a lot I can really say other than I appreciate how subtle it is. My only complaint is the abrupt outro. I can hear what sounds like a clip at 2:18, and it just doesn't sound natural to not let those notes ring out. Other than that, great work. It takes a lot to do so much with so little instrumentation. Keep it up!

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!
