Very well done I think, you have good themes, good sounding orchestration and I like the form and development too. This sounds like a lot of current cinematic music and would fit right into a variety of scenes I'm sure.  I was surprised at the extreme change at 1:20; I suppose if a scene required it that it would be appropriate, but in a short stand-alone piece I would probably prefer instead some further development of your main theme or else a smoother transition into that center section. But this is certainly good work!


Thank you very much for listening and providing valuable comments!  Have a nice day!

You have an ABA piece where the A section is strong and coherent, but the B section rambles.  The choir is a nice addition with the piano, but lacks direction.  Work on the middle section. Make it longer to equal the A section and you will have an excellent composition.

What equipment do you use, software and music libraries and such? it all sounds really great. And all in all i pretty much agree with what Ingo Lee said regarding the transition, everything else was awesome.


I tried to change the mood for the section B.  Anyway, I appreciate your opinion!!!

Thank you very much for your comments.  I use a PC (Intel Core i7-4770 @3.4GHz, 24 GB RAM, Win 10 64 bit), an audio/MIDI interface (focusrite scarlett 2i4), and a very old Yamaha Keyboard. Sonar Professional is my main DAW.  I use the following sample libraries; EWQL symphonic orchestra, QL Pianos, Hollywood Strings & Brass, Voxos, Symphobia 1 & 2, etc.  I use Izotope Ozone for mastering.  Well, I have revealed all of my trade secret!
