I've listened to many of the recent contributions in the Listening Room, but often don't post any comments because I don't know what the composer is looking for.
Things I would like to know:
How finished is it?
Who is the intended audience?
- Are you done working on it and posting it as a "finished" work?
- Are you looking for suggestions for polishing?
- Is it a work in progress and you'd accept major changes?
What kind of feedback are you looking for?
- Is this piece a study for your own learning or satisfaction?
- Is it for a movie?
- Is it for a course you're taking?
- Is it intended to be marketed commercially?
- Is it for eventual live performance?
- Subjective responses from a wide audience?
- Technical responses on recording and mixing?
- Musicianly responses on form, counterpoint, melody, harmony, orchestration esthetics?
