Hey guys!

I made this interstellar-(heavily)inspired piece. It is part of a soundtrack I'm writing for a tabletop RPG of my creation. It is set in a sci-fi/space opera universe and is meant to explore philosophical matters such as creation, time, consequences of meeting aliens on our society and so on. You can find it here

I'd love some feedback. Thank's for stopping by!

The contrast between C major and C diminished lydian was interesting in the beginning but perhaps got a little old after it didn't really seem to move much in that span of time. When you change the tonic to D major over D dorian it was very welcome.
The cluster section of that perhaps had that dissonance continuing on for too long? Or at least the same two notes (C and Db). You may have been able to rise that dissonance to build more tension.
When the drums come in, that's where it really started kicking off. Great integration of both the old and the new. Maybe could have used a couple more chords to keep things more fresh... but it wasn't a huge issue.

Your feedback is great and I must agree with all you said which leads me to :

I think there's a "problem" with this compositions. Being thought for soundtracks, sometimes a section seems too long when we listen to it without any images. That's what happens here. In fact, the music is evocative and has beautiful shifts as in 2:53, for example. Anyway I like the harmonies used here.

 

Which is completely true aswell. I maybe should have arranged it so it could have been listened to as whole thing. I thought for some time about writting the story which this soundtrack is attached too on the Internet. That could be a nice multimedia experience that would allow listeners to make their own images in their mind but I lack the time to do so sadly.

Anyway, thank you both for the feedback and suggestions.
