Very good - exceptional sound textures/samples, and very professional and polished.
The thing is, there are a lot of pieces like this.
The piece, while it incorporates dynamics and change, has a sameness through it.
That isn't a bad thing, it creates and sustains a mood, but it means that others will relegate it to the background, as audio wallpaper, once they realize the familiarity of the patterns.
It isn't something that demands attention, and overwhelms, or challenges.
When music 'captures' me, I follow it with imaginations and stories or memories. There is an almost kinesthetic demand in great music. It goes somewhere and takes you along for the ride.
There is emotion in your piece - a kind of slow and longing melancholy - but it isn't consummated, and it doesn't change or evolve.
Please don't take any of this as a put down. I see in this piece a technical proficiency that suggests you are capable of much more. Greatness, even. But you'll have to stretch to get there.
