I promised a lot of people I would make an entirely piano focused piece. I've tried this before, but I always found that I could never be satisfied with planning it out note by note.

Nope, thats simply not the way I play. What you are hearing is a recording of me sitting down in front of my keyboard and closing my eyes and playing entirely impromptu and straight from the heart.

This is something similar to what you would hear if you happened to walk in on me playing to relieve stress and sadness from my life. Which is probably why most of my music is rather sad in nature, as thats where I keep all my life's negativity... I just store my worries and woes in a song and live on happily as I should be.

This is gods honest the first recording with no editing and completely off the top of my head. It's not perfect, but it's me... and I wanted to share that with you. The piano is a beautiful instrument, and it's about time I gave it the solo it's always deserved on my audio list.

So enjoy, and remember... this is completely impromptu... with my eyes closed.

Also this is a good chance for me to mention "The Great Canadian Audio Tour"... if you live in Canada and your an audio artist, you may have a chance to meet with me and other newgrounds artists in an in-person collaboration of talents and interviews. Check the audio forum for the topic of the same name.

Loved it

I have pretty much all of your songs on my iPod already. Your music is so pure it's something I can listen to at anytime and it just puts me at ease. If you released an album of just this. I would buy it in a second always a pleasure listening to your work, keep it up!

Well I'm really glad you liked it man. Hey if you live in the Toronto area, I can pass a CD along to you when I come down there for the "Great Canadian Audio Tour" (Details in the audio forum under the same name). You can meet with me and a few other artists from newgrounds as well. Let me know if your interested in a PM and I'll let you know when I can.

Thanks for the review.

Powerful stuff.

Often, us pianists' best works are those improv pieces we forget the next day. Real gutsy recording one, but the result is fantastic. I wish I had the courage to do the same. Overall, just beautiful work.


MilkMan-Dan responds:

I know huh?... It's sucks Writing something that even surprises you... and then forgetting it the next day. This unfortunately isn't one of those pieces... but I wasn't so unimpressed with it that I felt it couldn't be submitted. You should submit an improv piece and let me know when you do so I can review it. I think you'd do fine.

Take care and thanks mate

very nice

i feel like an asshole for critiquing something so heartfelt but i think this would have been a bit more interesting to listen to with a larger range in terms of both dynamics and pitch (this last bit is a welcome change).

There's a part after the triplets in the left hand that sort of gets lost and sounds a bit messy. for one take though thats acceptable and the fact that this is all on the fly is quite a feat. i'd like to transcribe this myself, maybe :)


MilkMan-Dan responds:

Hey your not an asshole... critique is perfectly acceptable. I mean I could have gone through the midi score and digitally fixed all the errors in a matter of minutes... but I really really don't like doing that... it's just a peeve.

As for the range and dynamics... thats the price I pay for doing it with my eyes closed. Moving up and down a keyboard is considerably harder in that respect... but your right... it sure could use more range... I'll note that for future piano pieces.

Transcribe away btw... I won't be able to read it but someone else might.

Take care and thanks for the review.
