Just checked out the old version, quite the difference.  The new one doesn’t have that high energy beat, but it definitely doesn’t need it with the way you designed it.  It builds up energy in a much more subtle way.  They’re both great but the new one is for sure a more unique track.

All the sounds make real good use of space here. The piano is so nicely mixed too.
I gotta take some notes

This might be my favorite song of yours so far, gives off a vibe as if it could be the theme music for a new zone in Hollow Knight or something.

Yesss we are halfway!!! Loving that piano; excellent work on the melodies here.

very very nice. Love the piano and the cello in here, too.

Wow this is really nice, I had to stop slurping my coffee so I could just take it in.

Beautiful and introspective. Very much enjoyed the acoustic and acoustic sounding elements of the arrangement. The strings are very mellow and not harsh and the acoustic guitar is very full. The piano that enters at midpoint really brightens the track. Nice work!

Really nice atmosphere on this one.  The acoustic guitar and cello sounds blend great with the piano and create a relaxing journey.

Pollen has been ruining my sinuses!

Sooo lovely. Making me think of moonlit forests and lake shores. 10/10 would listen while stargazing.

Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to both! I appreciate that feedback a lot, and I'm glad to hear this one held up okay in comparison to the original.

Thanks, that's really kind! (I've been wanting to give Hollow Knight a try for ages. Maybe soon!)

That's quite a compliment! Few forces in this world are more powerful than coffee and/or slurping. smile Haha, thank you!
