I know that feel...

What? I can't here you over this music and stock sound effects!
If telling a story was your intention with this piece, then I'm happy to tell you that you've succeeded and then some! Here is how I interpreted this story you have told through music, via notes while listening:
00:30 Journey into somebody's psyche
(Love the use of organ pipes & dissonance)
01:00 How things used to be
01:30 Discovery and experimentation/ setup
(I love the xylophone/marimba)
02:00 Where it all went wrong
(Reminds me of Castlevania! I feel it could have used a harpsicord in addition to the almost melancholic choir!)
02:30 Chaos builds!
(Funny how a simple melody can add so much isn't it?)
03:00 Chaos climaxes, with realization what had gone wrong, and attempts to fix it
03:19 Path to discovering the solution perhaps?
03:36 I've made a horrible mistake...
04:00 Fast forward to now, 'mis en scene' style, and dead silence
(repeat of motif to really wrap things up)
The magic of music, or art for that matter, is that everybody interprets it differently. Your track is certainly 'mysterious' and somewhat 'dark.' But I'd also say that it is 'mournful' in tone, as if I should feel pity or sadness for whoever or whatever the music represents. Aside from a few creative nitpicks, I absolutely love your track! I'm a big organ-pipe/organ flute fanatic and I think you should make another piece centered around them! Amazing job! I look forward to following your future work!
Wow! Thanks a lot for that detailed review! I like your story ;) It was indeed a Xylophone and a Marimba together at 1:30 ;) I wasn´t really sure if the weird breaks at the end destroy the track, so it´s good to hear that it works somehow. I guess you´re right and in some parts it´s a bit mournful. It was actually my first track where I used an organ (although I did a lot stuff with barrel organ)... I had some more ideas for organ stuff, so maybe there will be some in the future ;) Thanks a lot again for the time for listening and writing!
This song reminds me that my life is changing, and that friends will come and go... It also reminds me of how lonely I feel... Everyone says you deserve to be loved, no one is willing to give it... I go on... No one to love me back... I am a Doctor without a companion... and I am truly sad.
