Hi guys, the name of the song is ¨Castillo De Arena¨, its an orchestral cover of the sand castle stage from Land Of Illusion.

Thanks!

One of my favourite stages of the game, if not THE favourite. And this version of the music just fill my heart with love.



And yes, I just don't have afraid of water stages with air/oxygen limitation gimmick: I just love to surpass this kind of challenges when well applied. Give me Labyrinth Zone (SMD or SMS version) anytime and I'll play it with the same passion as if I'm playing any other popular 2D Sonic stage.

i loved how you used the bells.
But i don't think "orchestral" is a good description, it sounds more like a marching band than a orchestra. especially with the reapeating snare pattern throughout the whole song.
Try to add a bit of a variation to piece if you want it to sound less like a "looped version" (which is fine during gameplay, obviously) and more like a standalone piece. Add a intro, create some tension, then come with the drums, maybe drop, change stuff around, and then come back again.

there's lots of ideas.
But this is a good song, i'm just not really in love with the arrangement, i guess. (i liked your wb song better. :) ).
