Hi.

Good orchestrations.

I think the piece could benefit from some more dynamics. For example, it could begin very quietly... then a gradual crescendo (when the string line starts) so when the horns come in at around 0:59 there is a noticeable dynamic "impact". Just one thought... could add some energy...

Good luck and keep writing!

Ryan

I love the composition! Really good writing and a beautiful theme.

I think the mix and programming could be little better. It sounds a bit far away sometimes?
I really enjoyed the composition, but I think it could be improved some with better mixing/programming.

Good work, keep it going

Thanks for taking the time to listen Jesse!
I am still in the very beginning stages of trying to grasp the nuances of mixing and mastering. My ears tell me what is wrong in a work, but I'm just not always quite sure how exactly to fix it Always a learning process!
