I was originally debating putting a choir or maybe some strings on top of this, but in the end decided against it, because I like it's current simple, serene nature. I didn't include any drums for the same reason.

Personal note:
This immediately became my favorite thing that I've ever written, the simplicity combined with the extremely tranquil tone not only speaks to me in ways that words never could, it takes my mind to another plane of existence altogether... When I close my eyes and listen back to this song, that I somehow created... I disappear into a different world.
Really, the feeling I get from this song is impossible to explain with words alone... But I hope by the time I'm done writing it, you can feel what I do listening to this song.

You know, something like this can be accompanied with the sound of rain falling, it's that good.

X Reverb and Echo

I think the echo and reverb should actually be cut off in this. It ruins the mood for me. I think my main problem with this track is that it sounds to *fake* for me. I know that sounds like a harsh word, but it's something that is easily fixable. I feel that the tune is beautiful in composition, but you ruined it with fake sounding midi effects.

If I was sitting next to you and I heard this being played on a piano, it would possibly be tear jerking. It is very dark and dramatic, elaborating your feelings through vibrations and deep spine tingling chords. I feel this tells the story of love and loss. It makes me think im wondering aimlessly through time, trying to find a certain something that will finally cause me to realize what the answer is for everything. In the end, however, the story doesn't stop where the song does. It continues going on, and I listen to my mind for more.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Initially this didn't have any delay on it, but I wanted to go for a more ethereal sound than your typical classical piano piece given the inspiration for the song, and the ping pong delay gave it that exact feel I was looking for.

As for the reverb, I use the same reverb on the piano in every song I do, maybe tweaked a tiny bit between each song, I'm a real fan of the big room sound, especially on an instrument such as piano.

Regardless, I'm glad you like the orchestration at the very least... I've been trying to do somewhat of a sequel to this song for a while, but I just can't seem to get the right feel for it, so it may be a ways off.

You were right!

the simplicity of this song is indescribable by words And i especially like it passing 2:41 Set with the spectrum visualization on, and also how it picks up at 3:02. Nice song though!

Note: (for people who want to try this, click the middle of the screen above the song title and under visualization find and click spectrum and slide the transition thing on the left to 90 then click the middle again to hide it and just listen to it or skip to 3:02)

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

It is quite mesmerizing with the visualization set like that. And yes... I strive for "effective simplicity" as opposed to "technical prowess". I.E. I prefer emotion and soul to skillful playing (To the point of showing off).

Thanks for the review!

This is nice

I like it. I don't know what to say exactly. I just really like it... It's very simple just as you said, but it is amazing. I'm glad there are musical artists out there like you. :) nice song

Love it

I love the way you always write slow and emotional works, They are personally one of my favorite type of genre, Your style of music is very deppressing but very beautiful.
I was disappointed after reading the author's comments and hearing you decided not to add in a choir! Every single classical piece is better with a choir! Anyway! great music as usual! do what you do best!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

What can I say... It's just my type of music, I've always written music of this nature, and I always will. As for the choir, I can't promise anything, but I might muck around just to see what I can come up with... no promises I'll upload the results though.

Thanks for the review!
