When listening to it, I feel the song is kind of thin but I can see it working extremely well as a piano-only piece, for dramatic effect. I think that by adding a layer to the sound really adds more to it and the synthetic feeling of it really tells of the themes behind the series, as a whole.

I hope you guys enjoy it! There will be more to come soon!
