Good evening people!

I've spent this evening working on a piece of orchestral music, and I'd just like a bit of feedback.

Is it going in the right direction?
What do you like?
What don't you like?
what should be added/taken away?
Any other general comments!

I'm willing to C4C

Cheers,
Mike

Sounds like you're new to this, the track definitely sounds "amateur"-ish. The music itself sounds way too empty, at least in terms of "arrangement".

I liked the ending. The strings definitely sound very "un-human" at some parts. Keep working on it, I'd say it's a good direction. But don't be afraid to experiment with sound, add effects, more instruments.

^New as in, about 3 hours deep, yeah! Thanks for the input though buddy.

Also I may have labeled it as 'orchestral' but I only actually used 2 cellos, 2 violas and 2 violins.

This one is tough to critique because I'm not exactly sure what you're going for. Perhaps it could be used in a film for a "dilemma" scene, since there's an overall ominous to it - which I like. If so then, I'd like to go somewhere different, play around more and throw in a build. It certainly has an uncomfortable edge to it. I agree with Orryn about the arrangement feeling empty. A lot of potential shown. Keep at it!
