Hello folks,

A few different pianos, a few different noise sources, and a few self-consciously "epic/cinematic" sound design elements.

Nice atmosphere you conjured up there. Reminds me of Akira Yamaoka's work on Silent Hill. Good stuff.

piano starts too loud, and remains too loud, imo. acustic piano in a slow track needs no redline brickwall limiting. :idea:

This has an interesting atmosphere.

I also thought the piano should have been softer at the start and then the piano change brings up the volume and then the piano could become softer again.
Increasing the piano volume towards the end, for me, seems to create an musical expectation that doesn’t happen.
