Good to see ya, nix. Like Temp noted, our new policies only reward submissions that are tailored for the game. So while I could come up with lots of things to say for this piece, I'll normally do that within the context of where this would fit in the game.
That said, the orchestration skills you must be learning in that class are evident here, and it's a significant improvement over the simpler arrangements you've submitted before. I don't know what the assignment was, but even if these are just samples from larger works, I like the way they mix and add variety to an otherwise floaty pattern of nice strings (which on my soundcard, sound awesome). My main kvetch is that the themes seem to have been added as afterthoughts to fit the underlying chord structures; I know that's probably not what you're focusing on for that class, but my recommendation for further submissions--especially those aimed for a current task--is to spend more time with a theme, giving melody more development and then add supporting parts.
Of course, that tends to be my style. Either way, this is good stuff, and it's nice to see more music coming in.
