Cloudlessly

Based on one of my older songs "Cloudless" and effectively orchestrating the piano solo spin-offs from it "Cloudful" and "Cloudfully". Lots of changes and variations on the main melody after playing it improvisationally a lot over the last couple years. I wouldn't really call this from a remake - if you listen to the original, you'll realize it's far from the original but still close enough to see the similarities.

This is my first really ambitious project in almost a year since Darker Stormy, so I'm hoping I haven't regressed in any way. Razz It's also my first time varying the key signature and tempo, so let me know if any parts of the song sound awkward or off-key. Any suggestions on how to handle this in general would also be great; I know nothing in regards to music theory so I'm just making this up by ear.

For a while I almost thought I was going to have to discontinue this one because I couldn't think of an ending .normally play this on piano and am able to just keep making up more on the spot. Not sure if a fade is appropriate here, but it seemed weird if I ended it on a single note. There's also the piano solo after the ending that I didn't know what to do with so I figured it could be a kind of an epilogue-ish bit after the ending; unfortunately I liked it too much to just leave it out, but I should probably not make this a habit....

Just can't seem to leave this song alone. I noted a lot of the comments about sample quality and emptiness; tried swapping out all the VSTs for East West samples just to hear how it sounds and ended up with an EWQL version of Cloudless. It's a lot "fuller" for sure, but warmer and more passive. I can't tell which I like better now. >.

Got a lot of feedback that the pitchshift was more noticeable than I wanted it to be. Went back and played with it a bit; think I might have shifted it one key too low originally so I raised it up a bit. Let me know if it still sounds weird but hopefully I made it better now (and not worse!).
Original pitchshift available here for comparison.

Extended the ending of the main song after 7 min. Still have that isolated piano bit after the song ending that I don't know what to do with. And the actual "ending" is still missing. -_-
