lovely sounds 8)
that throbbing bass is great, doesn't cloud out the mix but is up front for a time, nice work there :tu:
if i was going to complain about anything, and this is a personal preference, im sure you've noticed i enjoy what the kids call "long form" pieces, so for me it was over a little quick.
which is what my gf said last night :cry:

before anyone else says it :hihi:

Interesting dark ambience. It seems to mainly suggest loneliness but also a strength.

I think I understand where you going with this track but honestly I don’t feel it’s there. Something about the balance, dynamic and the story line not really clear to me.
I’m missing the punch line.

Great job friend.

My Feedback

Music - 9
Instruments - 10
Performance - 9
Mix - 9.5

Overall - 9.375

Comments: I don't know how I missed this. Glad I finally caught up to it. Very mysterious sounding. Nice mix. Instrumentation is very cool. Would love to know what synths you used for this. All in all, well done.

Nice work. Very cinematic. I would have liked the bassline to arrive earlier, and a little less "fizz" on the intro (maybe it's the reverb?), but overall it's well a balanced mix and sounds really good.

quite enjoyed that ...
particularly taken w/ the upper register motif juxtaposed against the staid progression ,
introduced when you bring in the bass ... i'd raise the level of that a bit ...

i concur w/ thecontrolcentre :
'twas a tad 'fizzy' at the intro ...

good work ...
