One Hour Compo - Round 397 (OHC397)
May 19, 2016 Koekepan
A Miner Discovery is a solid piece as well, with attractive addition of interest with the bends.
Titanic Storm is a great construction of tension, but alas the ending is a little unsatisfying.
I really wanted to vote for Shitbird's entry as well, but in the end the rather ordinary form was the deciding element that pushed it a little down the list.

1) "A Sun In Your Hand" - This is really great - I love that bass, and the development overall. I think the kick in this really holds the piece together when it goes into different sections and such. Thematically, I guess it works pretty well, like energy is pulsating or something.
2) "Glassblowing" - I like how this entry captures the "sound of heat", and things slowly wearing away by the quivering of certain sounds. You are great at drawing out a single detail musically and ambiently.
3) "Forever in Amber Crystals" - The only parts that truly work for me are the intro and the bit at 1:26, but the latter is so lovely that it's worth a vote. So basically yeah, the parts with less percussion seem to work better for me generally. I think it's just the beat though; it doesn't seem to match with the music and its repetitive pattern makes it too long drawn out. Well, that's about as best as I can describe it. ^^;
- "Rock Song" - I love the introduction - there are quite nice sounds from those chords. I'm kind of partial on the autotuned voice; it's amusing. I guess I didn't really feel any aspect of the "theme" from this.
- "The crystal cave" - This is cute; I love the drum. It could have been expanded further, maybe, but it's good as it is, too.

Random-storykeeper: some lovely tunes! great drums and melodies. I think the flow works just fine, no section feels too short nor too long. The gentle panning effects are a nice touch. Good work! Like Koekepan once said, you sometimes sound very Nobuo Uematsu -esque.
Patashu: I like the adventure in this. Good beat. The busy parts are very cool.
awesum: Patashu, Random-storykeeper, Shitbird.
good: Arcana, Koekepan.
