Yes You Should
Develop it. I was enjoying it when it stopped. You could build well on your original, adding layers until you reach a climatic conclusion. Track is a bit score like.

Thanks for that
I sort of got out of the doom laden beginning and was heading into a 'recovery' stage but then wasn't sure where to go. I'll try building it more.

Into the breach
Definitely worth developing. I agree with TBR -- it's a film score. You've placed a real challenge before yourself: transitioning from darkness to light. But the ingredients are already there. It could be glorious. If you don't mind a suggestion, the "light" section is already blossoming at 1:30 --- maybe dwell a bit longer on the opening, then break into light a little more gradually. This kind of mood change might have more impact with a bit more patience in the development. That being said, I could not do this, so, you know, grain of salt, my two cents, etc.

You're absolutely right
I had actually shortened the gloomy intro but then thought maybe I changed mood too quickly. I'll definitely stretch it and build more slowly. I can see what you mean form your own piece Day of the Zebra. I admire the way you hold a phrase for the right length of time.

Thansk for the help

wow neil
i think you have an excellent start here on this experiment. i agree you could really draw this out quite a bit more. lengthen and develop that beautiful, deep somber opening. it's very majestic, great strings. i really love the movement into the light. the horn call is great and the sweet flute rising up out of the ashes. this second half could really be drawn out as well, built up slowly into a glorious climax. maybe wait a little longer to bring the tubular bells and cymbals in, let things build a little more. this is a beautiful composition and i really hope you continue to develop it.

Thanks for listening
