"Thanks for the feedback guys . . . I really appreciate it! I've posted another mix on SoundCloud, if you want to check it out. This one is a lot better, I think. And I've refined the lyrics a bit, too. The lyrics come in with the piano bit…"
"I'm inclined to agree with Gav. - exciting and SF but unvarying in intensity so the excitement wears thin after a few minutes. I couldn't relate it to the lyrics (on Soundcloud).

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
