It's great that you could hear it live.

Cool!

I wish I had the time to learn how to do that sort of stuff. I think that it would be cool to be able create score videos and post them on YouTube or whatever. There are many of them out there.

Nice. Simple and pleasant. The somewhat unusual instrumentation works well. I particularly liked the middle section.

Thanks once again for the listen.  I actually played this with my orchestra friends.

A nice, simple, meditative, piece, suitable for a nocturne.

A few engraving issues:

The slur in m.5 needs to be repositioned.

The ties in m.16 and 17 (and elsewhere). My understanding is that the tie should go under because the new pitch added to the held pitch is above the held pitch. This also avoids the tie colliding with the new pitch.
 
In m.23 and 24 (and elsewhere) you don't have dynamics indicating how loud and soft to get. Then in m.26 you have a p marked when the last dynamic marked (in m.16) is also p. By the way you have a p marked for both hands in m.16.

Thanks so much for the detailed review and for pointing out the engraving issues.  ;D

Very good work. Good handling of the ensemble.

I particularly liked the rhythmic/metric things you did. It kept the piece moving along with good energy throughout. So many pieces in this vein become plodding and tiresome due to the constant four square rhythm.

Thanks so much for listening~!  I do seem to have a knack for this ... shifting the rhythms.

How did you get the music and video synced up? I know nothing about the software needed to accomplish this sort of thing.

I am pleased you enjoyed the movie score!

To do this type of work - you need to download/buy a video-making program.  I have used VideoStudio these last twenty years.  https://www.videostudiopro.com/en/products/videostudio/pro/

The process is straight forward.  You load the video segment on the video line and then load the audio segment on the audio line(s).   Then by using the waveforms - you can sync them up and edit both the audio and video at your command.

I agree, the music works very well with the movie.
