Pro General Comments: Conceptually and melodically, the song evokes a peaceful, tranquil type of musical environment that if fleshed a bit more arrangement wise, possibly by adding a bridge or a B section, could help to elevate the emotion even more. The opening keyboard intro was well conceived and set up the rest of the arrangement well. Once the rest of the instrumentation comes in at 0:33, the listener can hear the synth strings brought forward into the arrangement. I would suggest trying to update some of the synth and keyboard samples to ones that are more contemporary sounding, as well as far as the strings, more organic and less synthetic sounding. It's good enough for a demo version to be able to get the main melodic elements of the song, however, for any kind of pitch for a film/tv type of placement or in a library, than an update of samples would be required. As mentioned, the main melody has a kind of melancholy, yet uplifting emotion to it, that brings the listener in, however, I think by adding a B section to contrast with the first section would help to flesh out the arrangement more. The overall performance is pretty solid.

Quote From Pro: An uplifting, yet tranquil type of main melody comes forth in this song, which is mainly derived from a keyboard and synth string arrangement.
