    I'm working on the soundtrack for an audio narrative podcast series I am working to develop. Some of these tracks will be horror/thriller oriented, and some not.

    If you have any thoughts about any of the tracks, I would greatly appreciate your feedback!

    Thanks for listening!

    I like the opening which is very evocative. But the whole isn't jelling for me. It's not the accidentals. The figures are not sharply defined and so I start to drift more along the lines of an ambient piece, though yours is more insistent than that. Even then it might have worked if you could have maintained the precarious balance, but the scoring overall seems off (the piano in particular seems too far forward, the bass is a bit much as well).

    EDIT: This reply makes more sense before I edited the thread title and song contents.

    Thanks so much, @jbuhler! I think I will try to reimagine this song a bit.

    My favourite section is the string part near the end and I want to better support that.

    The faster piano and bass line section near the middle gave me nothing but trouble.

    Might also change out the piano as well as I’m having some small tuning issues I think with it.

    Thanks again.

    The track seems to be gone ... I think your mom took it down :)

    Update: it's back. must've been my computer. I like the emotive strings in the 2nd half. Felt pianos always set a contemplative or detached mood for me.

    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I think it’s worth me taking another crack at this. I should have sketched it all out on the piano first.

    Just posted two new/revised tracks in this thread. Original version is gone. Please see the initial post, where I briefly explain what the heck I'm up to here... and more importantly... how I would LOVE your feedback!

    Thanks!

    I just added "track 12". More sound design heavy, and more horror oriented. Same with track 6.

    I just added "track 7". A bit more involved than the other tracks so far, so would really love some feedback on any aspect. Composition, orchestration, mix, etc. Need fresh ears.
