Good evening!

My first successful soundtrack has been used for our theatre play. My friends liked it but I would also like to hear feedbacks from You, the musicians. :)

(Genre of play: tragicomedy)

Sounds perfect for a play soundtrack. Not thematic enough to distract from the action, but has enough character to create a slightly ominous mood.

Suggestion: try lowering the MIDI velocities on the piano, at least during the intro. It'll sound more natural. Just give it a try - most sampled instruments do better in the middle of their velocity range rather than staying too long at the upper end.

Thanks so much for the recommendation. I did not even realize that myself.

Thanks for the feedback! Well, it wasn't supposed to distract from the action, I am not that experienced soundtracker yet :D
