Thank you for sharing your two pieces Claudio, a fascinating subject matter.
I recently visited the British Museum for their Ashurbanipal exhibit which was amazing.

These are my initial and very subjective impressions as I listened to your music:

1) Good arrangement and variety in terms of themes and development.

2) I found the brass arrangements good, but felt the actual sounds felt very static. It is most likely down down to the library you used - was it the Notion sounds or did you use some other library?

3) I liked the snare ostinatos, but the parts felt too busy and repetitive at times, and distracted from the music.

A few specific remarks:


- the snare sound felt very dry and close-up, maybe add some more reverb?

1:03 nice build-up

1: 52 I liked the stopping and the sense of anticipation it created

1:57 maybe a rit. or slower tempo here?

2:21 good entry and cresc. with strings + brass

3:05 brass sounded static

4:19 nice instrumentation

5:16 love the distinctive orchestration and composition

6:42 nice glock balance :)

7:02 good brass - but it sounds synthetic (limitations of the library)

7:54 nice rall. dim. and percussion - it felt very evocative


- a lovely piece and arrangement

- intro - maybe too much percussion?

0:56 nice development...

2:40 static brass sound

4:20 love the sense of space here and the pacing...

7:39 a nice change of pace and mood

Once again thank you for sharing,
