Celeste - "Just Breathe" remix of "First Steps (Pointless Machines)"

Recommended Posts

Edit: updating link to a newer version, again!

This is something I recently started working on. It's a cover of "First Steps (Pointless Machines)" from Celeste. If you're not familiar with the source, it's on youtube here:

Here is my current WIP: 

My main concern at this point is if it's too long, but I don't know what I would cut if I had to shorten it. It would probably have to be either section A (the first introduction of the melody at 0:32) or A2 (the guitar solo) together with the following B section since they play the same melody and it doesn't really need to be stated twice I guess. But I don't really want to cut either! Any advice or feedback would be wonderful, thanks for your time. I would like to try submitting this track, is it ready yet?

For section A, I see what you mean - I think it works as it is, but it probably could be enhanced with a bit of low end (form of pad or bass) coming in on a gradiant, really taking hold at around 00:54. Still, like I said, it is nice as it is and could well be an instance where less is more.
As for section E, you're going to hate me for this, but I think what it needs is that one final crescendo, and just go all out in it (similar to 01:35, but padded out) before cutting out at 04:48. Similar to the original, but with a little less restraint. It'd be a lot of work, ... but it might sound amazing.

Also, can I just say how good this is, overall, and that 02:20 - 02:40 especially is lush AF.

Keep up the great work!
