I'll take a look at making some edits! Thanks for the notes!
To give a bit of context to my thought process for these:
Instinct - Using elementary instruments more closely aligned with protomusical structures (so that's voice, basic pipe instruments, drums) with an incredibly simple/sparse layout that would work as chant or verse.
Civility - Again, I aimed for instrumentation of an era - namely that of the Romans around 1000 BC - 100 AD - I also went for a very structured, simplistic form that wasn't super dense as it was the style of the time. (It's easily my least favorite of the four, so I may take more liberties with this one and expand into some complex strings or something)
Enlightenment - I was aiming for a quasi-string quartet feel (thus the only instruments being two violins, a viola, and a cello), but I could see expanding it to include a more full ensemble (possibly a full orchestra, though I may stick to only strings and woodwinds to fit the feel of it all)
Globalization - This was more of a modern piece, so I used a lot of variations on small ensembles (jazz bands and the like - That's why I lead with Marimba and Vibes, for instance) and more loosely used jazz scale functions in the structure of it. I could definitely see some scaling up in the latter portion of the cue to incorporate a few more reeds/brass and possibly some synths, so I'll take a hard look at it and make some edits/additions.
As for why they aren't bombastic or "epic" as some would create - I feel that everything has its place, so I can do grandiose, if we need it, but I decided for lighter touches to start with as it better exposes (in my view) my style and thought process, so we can exchange ideas better on what is needed. I'm just trying to help out as best I can!
