Sorry if I haven't made any thing. But lately nothing has been coming to my mind. It's like when I try to make music, this sort of emptiness emerges and just fills my mind to a point where I just give up on it entirely. Well I gave it a shot.

In my mind I tried to imagine a looming terminal illness that can affect you. I imagine an old man dying in December with a 1000 stories, but no family or friends to tell it to. Kind of like how this musical dry spell feels like, but, theres always a little hope.

Any ways this is going out to you. Enjoy

It sounds fantastic!
If you need help to make a song, make it ABOUT your emptiness. Try to just fiddle with the piano, and whatever feels right with your fingers, GO WITH IT. Even if the song isn't yours, it'll help you get out of a rut.
Even professionals were once beginners.

How pretty

At first I thought I had reviewed this submission before, but I apparently did not. I am glad to review it for real now because it is a really well done song. It's easy to tell this was made on piano with every sound. I thought from the title it was going to be about a terminal like at an airport. The song actually didn't come off as depressing to me until I found out it was talking about a terminal illness. In a way, that's good.

It shows that you can still show off creativity and innovation even when discussing a very sad subject matter. It has mostly a soft tone but is demanding at times. It was really interesting to have that description, especially with the old man with 1000 stories. It really makes you look back and reflect what you have done in your life. I can be happy knowing that I have written reviews.

Lovely - easy to drift off too.

I really like the story and concept behind this piece. I'm listening to it again and again, and each time it feels like one of those 1000 stories is being told..

This is brilliant and I am trying to find a way to say what I want to say without sounding too fussy.. so forgive me if I come off as being pedantic and unsatisfied; I merely feel that there are a slight few creases here and there on this 'Beautiful Musical Fabric' that could been ironed out, so to speak.

I feel that the ending note should have been prolonged a bit more, a linger solitary note that is allowed to tail off.. this to me would have given a distinct feeling of this old man, finally coming to his end.

I feel that the right hand in this piece was very well executed, the dynamics for it were perfect. The left hand, I feel, could have had a bit more dynamic variety, and perhaps even a few more low notes here and there to really bring out the melody, because, I find that when I play a bass note, that it widens the contrast of the sound significantly, making the higher notes stick out even more.

So as you can see really this is brillliant and with a bit of light tweaking here and there, I really feel that the piece would benefit a lot, a bit like polishing a diamond to bring out its shine even more.

Well done :)

Good composition.

This song is good, well written and well played, even if it is a style that is regularly visited by composer, pianists in particular. To the person below me, it's Sonata, not Sinatra (Because if Beethoven wrote like Sinatra, music would be VERY different). The reason it sounds similar is because the are both slow piano pieces played in a minor scale, which all have the same saddening feel to them. However, Beethoven speeds up and plays a much more classically styled piece.
