I never seem to have time to listen to other people's music these days, but I'm just so happy I stopped long enough to hear this one. Utterly enchanting :love:
It wasn't me! (well, actually, it probably was)

Reminds of some early classical music. It's simple but creates an elegant atmosphere through its minimalism. I like how nothing sounds too forced. It's like you stumbled upon this tune in a fairy circle in the forest and recorded it from afar.

The melody doesn't leave its comfort zone might be one critique I'd give it. It sort of meanders without seeking a tonic. I hesitate to mention it though because it's also part of its charm. Every melody is a conversation or argument. Great melodies really say something and resolve to a conclusion.

Very sweet tune. The simplicity is key. Too many people run out of inspiration and start slathering on different sounds and instruments. This one stays cohesive.

You have managed to put together a complementary set of sounds which give this piece a suitably soft atmosphere and the melody works well with the soundset to suggest a woodland or forest scene. I liked the reverbs on here.

Good work :)

Hi Aaron,
would it not feel odd if it introduced more tension?
thanks for the feedback!

Thanks! Yes, being inspired by a woman can be/is the greatest thing :D
