Dark!
Indeed is dark! I would space it out with a more mellow tone and rise the tempo a little bit on a stretch of danger(boulders falling)

I like your concept!

Although
I probably won't go with the mellow tone concept edpdx I appreciate the feedback and the listen.
Cheers,
Charlie

your music
always communicates such a great sense of movement and many times sparks an imagined "visual" response as well. Wasn't bolders for me ... but def. a story. nice one charlie

Wow
Complex rhythmic structure here. I like how the different string groups interleave sometimes in dissonance, like arguing while the flute (sax later) tries to find agreement (I'm surprised I found that image as I wrote without thinking... it's not me, it's the music!). Note: I didn't read your description before listening... now I get it.
Powerful. Cinematic. Original. Love it!

This would
indeed work perfectly in a movie depicting that scene. The tension build-ups capture how I feel when driving in hazardous situations and wishing I could get where I am going.

not so dark
I like the wood hit? that follows it through, very interesting journey. I found it to be epic in some ways almost Ben hur or something classic along those lines At least thats the Image it gives me!

Loosely stacked boulders
I like this. It has a general direction, but locally some pieces take off a bit in their own direction.

Your Right.
This road has some exits and turn offs along the way.
Glad you didn't get lost Vic.

Dark Highway
A very interesting piece, the title fits flawlessly.
I like that you stepped away from the traditional feel that this scene would demand.
The syncopated rhythm captures the unpredictability of a hazardous road . . .
