This is an adaptation of one of my pieces, Drifting, rearranged for a short film called "Mural" by Bubbowrap.

http://bubbowrap.newgroun ds.com/

While I've had a number of pieces used in videos and flash games, this is the first time that I've went the opposite direction and set music to film. It was a lot more difficult than I imagined, because synching the music to the visual cues created all kinds of headaches with timing.

I had to take a nearly five minute piece and boil it down to two figuring out which parts were relevant to the short film and which were extraneous. In the film there is a significant visual cue where the entire mood changes, and I was desperately trying to get the music to fit up to that point. I had a sixteen bar phrase preceding it but ending up several seconds short. Slowing down the tempo to compensate sounded ridiculous forcing me to recompose much of the piece. I had to change the harmonic rhythm to get something like an 18 bar phrase. All of this was challenging but also an enormous amount of fun. I can't wait to score more films now. :D

The video might be submitted to film festivals, so I can't link to it for a few months. Thanks to Bubbowrap though for the wonderful opportunity! Check out his animations. Also, I actually improvised the piano part at the beginning and end, but everything in the middle is sequenced with just a mouse.

Since I can't post the video currently, can you come up with a story? I'd love to hear what images this brings to mind. Thanks for listening!

It's an incredibly beautiful and emotional piece. I can see why someone would want to use it in a film. Good work!

Wow...this is peaceful. Loved this song; it brought some tears. I can picture a lone teenager, forever alone, when he suddenly gets a 'chance' (could be any chance) to prove to his friends that he has talent and power and achieves succes.

So, now onwards a review. The intro was perfect; great composition there. At 1:03 was when tears tried to burst out of my eyes; that part is a great sudden rise of atmosphere. It calms down at 1:30, and it ends just about perfect.

No criticism on this; this is perfect in my opinion. Definate 5/5 + new favorite. This is some great classic talent...I'm jealous. =P

It's been a long time since I listened to this kind of music (new generation music is taking its places, sadly), and this inspires me to listen to more classical songs. =)

That first paragraph sounds an awful lot like Naruto. :p

Thank you regarding the intro. I don't normally record myself playing piano but decided to give it a shot on the intro and outro. :) 1:03 took me a lot of thought to build up to, and it is great to know that it turned out effective.

My first compositions were...not the greatest. :p Keep at it my friend, and thank you very much for the encouraging review.
