The recent announcement of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy inspired me to come up with something that could've been a main menu theme or something to one of those kinds of platformer games.

Very effective.

Like the hybrid nature of the sound combos...not just orchestral as such.

Simple, effective structure going full circle back to that delicate but energetic pseudo-pizzicato theme.

Some good contrasts in pace and texture in there as well...all well-judged.

Loved the way that just about all the melodic material is linked to the opening ideas....gives it strong continuity.

Love to hear a longer more fully developed version.

I think the big orchestral sounds could possibly be a little more 3D...just a little bit flat in the sound stage...very small point....especially as the delicate nature of the other sounds might possibly be overwhelmed by too glorious an orchestra? Not sure.

Good like it.
Try layering tracks up to get a bigger sound.
