The production/composition of this piece was abruptly stalled midway due to a family medical emergency which meant the studio had to be left completely unoccupied for the best part of a month. This can be heard and registered as loss of direction midway through this piece as the stall completely shut down the creative process. This track was finished for the sake of finishing, there were some moments of clarity but the disruption had taken its toll. As a consequence, this track is personally regarded as one of the worst pieces ever made. Your mileage may vary.
Very nice composition. I liked the undulating horns at the beginning. The piano also brought a nice touch to the song. The instrumentation works very well, and the sounds are of top quality. The flute was really outstanding.
The musical texture remains rather light throughout the composition; there aren’t any really massive parts in the whole song with many instruments playing at the same time. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just something I noticed.
The overall feeling is quite light and comfortable. However, I missed a distinctive climax in the piece, which could perhaps be created with those massive parts I mentioned, or by creating more variation in the volume levels.
My favourite part of the piece is the beginning. Later there are also good parts, but somehow the beginning really stuck out. After a few listens I couldn’t conceive a very clear connection between the various parts of the piece, except for the sound and mood.
It could also be because of the length of the composition, which makes it harder to keep track of everything which goes on in it.
About the length: maybe the piece could use a little reduction, but it really wasn’t a hard listen as it is.
To conclude, this is a thoroughly enjoyable piece, and my only gripes concern the slight lack of consistency, and the lack of a clear climax. Sounds are very good, and there isn’t much anything wrong with the musical material presented. Good work!
