beautiful ... relaxed, I like it. The arps, strings and atmospheric sounds are really well done. A bit more variation would improve the tune (?). Good ambient stuff !

Very very nice...!
Great arps (always melting me down). It is like falling asleep (positively) :):). That will make it awesome ambient.
The snare could have less "8-bit" sound IMO.
I like the repetition btw, it brings some kind of trance..

Nice entry justin. My favourite chord sequence done to excellent effect. With bonus twinkly bits and relaxed tempo. You are ticking all my boxes with this.
Ace arps. As knetter says. Plating it with 'softie the snowman II' plug in on windows media player. It fits his little dance perfect.
You could've stretched this to eight minutes you know.
Excellent :)

Nice. I like the classy bassline. The song name really fits as well. Btw, what really happened to the snowflake in the end? :D

Thanks for your comments so far :-)
@ cralias - in the end it is gone with the wind ;-)

Your instrumentation was evocative of a snowflake; qreat job with that. I aqree that a bit more variation miqht improve it, but it`s fine ambient music as it is. Not all music has to stand out.

Very cool. Does put the image of a snowflake in mind, flying around. I think the percussion couldve used a bit more variation but it's ambient so it gets the job done really. Good stuff

I'd put a ton of reverb on the jingle bell to make it feel more like it is the back of the mix. Otherwise, I like the fade-in and the steady groove.

Very nice man. A quite relaxing & beautiful journey. Love the pianos particularly. However it doesn't feel particularly christmasey to me, like this could be any other round although not quite your usual tech affair. :) I must mention however that it reminds me a lot of RWJ's song "Disconnected" from round 10 in both chord progression and atmosphere -- http://www.sdcompo.com/entry.php?e=112 . Still yours does have its differences, the piano mostly which I quite like on yours Justin. Peace :)
