That was actually pretty good. Sounded to me like a score for a TV drama, I can imagine that playing underneath a slick intro.

Disturbing music. I think it's well done. The honky saloon piano tone adds to the mystery. That synth bouncing from right to left is very effective.

One thought that struck me was maybe you could reduce the width of the claps like percussion to add more 3D depth to the track. Maybe even low pass it a little too.

Maybe it would be even better if that trumpet-like synth sound did not only play one and the same note...

But it indeed sounds rather melancholic...

I feel the pan buzz thing was a bit annoying. I am wearing headphones. Maybe because it went to the right side so much and it's a piercing sound. Maybe it's just personal preference where there is nothing wrong with it. I would try making it pan an equal amount slowly left and right but not to much to one end as it is now and quiet it down as a distant noise so the piano becomes the focal point which is nicely done.
