A couple of folks from my town joined together on a Facebook group to pass the time during the pandemic. Every now and then, we have a little "contest" (a theme, a deadline, but no prizes). This time around the theme was hope. This is what I came up with:

All feedback welcome, all listens appreciated.

Cheers.

I like it. It has a slightly driving feel that fits the theme without being over the top. Lots of cool little details. :tu:

Nicely done, I like your arrangement, it fits the theme of your contest quite well and keeps the song interesting while the timekeepers remain in place throughout the song. :clap:

Thanks for listening and commenting all. Blue Eyed Ghost, it's nice to hear that the tune reflected the theme. I don't normally shoot for any particular feeling, I just write.

Nice! Really good build. The bass that comes in at 4:10 is supper rich and buttery. Love the panning and width on the marimba type sound.

I liked the choice of sounds. You have managed to make a pleasant, clear mix here, and the music has certainly managed to evoke feelings of hope and optimism.

Good work :)
