I think is a very well acomplished piece. It reminds me of music of a Studio Ghibli movie. Is it in a ABA form? If it is I love B section (when the adante starts) and how contrasting and full of relief it is when the main theme comes back. Well I guess I'm going to repeat myself to say that you've done a very good piece of music.

It makes me really happy that the piece reminded you Studios Ghibli. The theme A is inspired in the soundtrack of "Nausicaä and the Valley of the Wind".

 

The theme B was composed by the person who paid for the commission, my work was to elaborate on the idea and improve it. 🙂

Hey, I just composed my first commission ever.

Awesome! 

What's this for? Will we get to hear a live performance? Or is it for a film or video game? Regardless, getting paid and having a deadline is a great motivator for your music, as I've found under "stresses" it can bring the best out of you. Plus you can use this as a giant upside in your portfolio for your future endeavors. 

This piece flows very nicely, nothing seems out of place as your transitions are well crafted. Make sure to keep in touch with the client; you would be surprised how their word of mouth promotion of your music can help with finding more work. 

Well done, keep us updated!

This is a nice emotional work that somehow avoids cliche!  I like the main theme.  Does the B theme start at m. 35 or maybe m. 47?  Although m. 47 seems more like a variation of the original A theme - I think from m. 47 onwards you really do some of the best work in this piece that I've heard - very emotional.  Now - m. 100 is obviously the "true" recapitulation of the A theme so maybe the previous material was the B theme that the person who commissioned this gave you?  Very interesting piece!  Nice job!

I composed it for a visual novel. Basically I composed the music for the main theme and two loops. Also I didn't have a deadline.

 

Glad you liked it. I did more versions until me and the client found what he wanted. 🙂

Yes, the B section really starts after I recall the small Bb-A-D-G motif, although you could consider the first fragment in G# minor some kind of B theme.

 

I consider the structure of the piece an ABA', but the B section can be seen in two ways. Because when I was composing it, the slow part was kind of a transition to make sure G# sounded totally natural. (Because modulating from G minor to G# minor can sound a bit funky if I don't make sure the listener is well settled.) So you can see it a part of the transition or a subsection of the B theme.

 

 

And glad to see you liked it. 😉
