What's new

Back to my epic roots....

Opening synth isn't interesting enough. Need to add something else.

Meter isn't clear in the beginning. Tough to follow and I found myself trying to fit the soloist into the meter.

Vocal sometimes not in time enough. Same with some other instruments.

Lines could use some harmony. Other lines could use octave thickening as well.

Countermelodies may help add interest.

Phrases need to be reworked. They feel a bit clumsy and busy at times.

Ending just sort of happens. Piece doesn't really build to it.

Transcribe and mock up other music you like from this genre. Try to get them as close as possible to the original. You'll learn a ton about composition and mixing from that (in addition to books/courses, etc).

Hopefully these criticisms aren't too harsh. I only give them to you bluntly because I know you can take it and you care a lot about improving :)
