A two minute score for chamber, written to accompany underwater and coastal footage.

Hope you like it! These are  fun to put together 🙂 

Would welcome any and all feedback!

What's up with your score... everything is in treble?
Return of the A section I feel should have some more identifiable distinguishing features, or else it just sounds flat compared to the section before it.
First inversion CTA's in the end in the bass are a bit... shallow sounding. Also bII to I in the beginning could probably be helped out by a better dominant-based voice leading, especially since the solo instrument jumps up to the major third. Pretty nice overall, though.

Hey, thanks for listening and for the feedback. I'll address a few of your points:

Yeah, the score is a bit off, agreed. I typically switch clefs if a large section of an instrument's material is above or below their normal clef, however sometimes I may have forgotten to switch them back once their music is back in the normal range. 

I don't disagree with the return of A, but do feel that, as this is intended as a score for the visuals, the video contributes a fair bit to the changes in mood, allowing more sudden changes in tone than if this was simply programmatic music. 

As for voice leading in the beginning, you're right: this is a new style for me, and the more abrupt harmonic shifts cause their own problems, which I'm not yet used to solving!
