Lovely Buddy
I like your work Yi Zhang. I love the colorful orchestration, the touch of violin solo & guitar contrasting the mood. Not to forget, your choice of the children's choir really brings out the magic of this piece. Delicately done with care. Great work, keep up the good work :)

Congratulations! Great scoring - I very rarely watch/listen to competition entries all the way through (it's too much for my ADD! ;-D), but your music kept me watching to the end

Paraphrasing Ben Franklin: I'm a firm believer in good luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.

Congrats to you, sir... lot's of blood, sweat and legatos to get this award!

Very good orchestration. I really liked it, especially the solo violin at 1:20 and the build up that follows it. Sounds great and very natural. Not only you composition is great, this track is very well produced. You could make a tutorial on both the composition and the mix, and I would be the first one to buy it :) Congratulations.
 
こころ, おどる "The heart dances"

Nicely crafted and your choice of meter really makes the heart dance with the images. I like how the wistful theme at the start prefigures the title screen and opening visuals. Also you've left room for some of the sound effects to punctuate the flow of the soundtrack. The music has to do a lot of work in this film and I think you nailed it. Congratulations!

Thank you NDRU, I'm glad you enjoyed the dialogue between acoustic guitar and solo violin. I also think the children's choir is very close to the picture, I will keep up my work. :2thumbs:

Thank you Lowweek. I like drama music style very much. I have only been to Tokyo twice. Okinawa looks very beautiful. I have a plan to go to Okinawa.:scout:
