Well, I lied. I told Reasoner I'd give his song a go once I finished a current project. But to be completely honest, I couldn't work on my project with this melody running through my head. Here it is. My interpretation of Living Transparent.

I was originally going to use Ryan's MP3 of his playing and build around it, but I figured I would arrange the whole piece myself. I was doing brilliantly, if I do say myself, but then I had to improvise the left hand once it got difficult to hear on Ryan's song. I also had to add in a couple notes to help with transitioning.

Anyway, since Electronica is my prominent genre, I couldn't leave out some Electronic Elements in my song. My interpretation follows Ryan's song for the most part. I added a violin here, some percussion there, and a whole orchestra later on. Then, where Ryan's original song would fade out, I reiterate the beginning melody with a Trance Lead (By the way, I apologize if I'm getting my genres incorrect. My knowledge on the different genres is, shall we say, abysmal).

This is easily the hardest I've worked on any song, and I have Ryan to thank for that. He pushed me to my limit. And, despite what I feel I have accomplished, I can't help but feel a little disappointed submitting my interpretation in this form. The mixing is, in my opinion, pretty bad. I've never been good at it. In the EQ, I had to cut out most of the frequencies to keep the Peak Meter from Clipping, but in doing so, it feels like the song didn't deliver the punch and intensity I wanted it do. Honestly, I think the climax sounds a bit quieter than the beginning. I really want this song to be incredible, so I'd like to hear comments from everyone. I want to know everything. Anything at all. Anything to help improve it, especially mixing-wise.

Let me wrap this rather lengthy commentary. I hope I kept Ryan's emotion intact throughout the song. I hope I didn't completely ruin the piece. I hope it speaks out to all of you, just as his had. And most of all, I hope you, Ryan, enjoy this piece.

Awesome

Living Transparent is one of my favorite things to listen to. As such, the fact that the actual song doesn't seem to have great sound quality is rather disappointing. Other than that, everything about the song is beautiful. Great work.

True beauty...

This piece is likely the most beautiful thing I've ever heard. It's a very peaceful melody and I love the way you bring it out. It's a piece that creates soft and beautiful images in the mind and really touches the soul. Likely the best thing I've ever seen or heard in any form of art.

I apologize for waxing poetic, but I really mean it. I've never heard anything that can lift my mood the way this dose.

Think you.

Wow, thanks! But I think you are giving me far too much credit. The original artist is Reasoner. You should give him a listen. The melody is his. I just gave my own interpretation!

Beautiful...

This is just amazing. I'm already a huge fan of Reasoner's music, and this song was one of my favourites, you've taken this to a whole new level of awesomeness. I love how you just let the melody lead and everything else accompany it. I don't think that there is another song on newgrounds that can even begin to compare to this.
Please make more songs with Ryan as you are both extrememly talented and will make such amazing music. If I could suggest another one to do like this, then it would have to be lost.

Wow, you just compared me to Ryan. As flattering as that is, I must say that Ryan is on a level far above me.

Thanks for the extremely kind words. I will try to make more music that's as good as this or even better.
