haunting... I like the Elfman-esque style, but the celesta part could use more dynamics I think. It takes away from lead parts. There is plenty of room for a bigger climax. Bring more orchestra in near the end maybe.

Thanks Gemi!

This is 1 of 10 tracks from a collection titled "Night Tracks". I purposely kept these tracks low-keyed (no big builds) for background scenes.

Yes, this would work with some big builds (even more deveopment). I may just do that sometime.

Thanks again, John

That is eerie. I really like it. I loved the melody right from the start. The only part I didn't like was at about 3:20 near the end... too repetitive for my liking. Maybe add some dynamics or orchestra, as was mentioned.

Overall, nicely done. Thanks for sharing,
dave

Well I'm not sure I hear trolls, but I liked the music. The phrasing is especially unique and matches the harmonic progressions very well. Like gemiknight I didn't hear significant changes in dynamics or texture. For a short piece that's fine and this piece was about as long as it could be without losing something. I understand why you kept them low keyed. In the future you'll probably find more success on this forum with pieces intended for listening rather than background. In fact as background music this may be too interesting. Good luck!

You know it's interesting when you block out the visual and listen to the music how much music there really is in the background. This definitely sounds like something that would fill into a scene...are you pitching it to/with anyone?

Just interested.

Thanks everyone for your comments. It's always interesting and encouraging.

My publishers are always pitching to TV spots. This one hasn't been used yet. This one is under a non-exclusive contract, so I'm free to post it here.

Thanks again, John
