This here is my entry for the Dreams of Splendor contest being run by Bosa over on the Audio Forum.

A little different than my usual, also the most complicated (and hard to play) piano part I've done yet.

Stunning!
I can't wait for the piano solo version. It'll be tremendous! Really really enjoyed this.

The piano only version is already up... all I had to do was turn off the other tracks and export again. ;3

Glad you liked it!

Wow, you are incredibly talented. Great song. I love the staccato chords from ~2:06. Keep doing what you're doing.

Beautiful entry, very captivating. Great theme too if I might add. When I think about traveling home after being away for months, this is what I imagine myself listening to.

I love how you gently build the song with the piano and the soft hats until the rest of the instruments come in. Speaking of which, at 1:54 the song really picks up and it gives me this really uplifting sensation. Just enough to put a smile on my face! Awesome. :)

I just wish you had used that synth that picks up around 2:20 a little more. It was a fantastic addition to the piece overall, and it dies off much too quickly..and when it does, it leaves a strange resonance, perhaps due to reverb? I'm not sure. I thought it interrupted the song just for a split second though. But hey, that might have just been me! Either way, perhaps your intention was to carefully end the synth when you did. If that is the case, then I'm guessing you meant for it to capture the moment of arriving 'home' after a long tiresome journey. That's just my take on it at least.

Great job on this piece, it really struck a chord with me. I think that's because you were able to capture the essence and the importance of having a place to call home. Good luck in the contest! :)


Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Good to know it put a smile on your face. It's funny, cause most of my music is spawned from despair (Not necessarily this one), but most people interpret it as uplifting, but hey, I won't complain, people are free to interpret as they wish.

Although I will admit this is one of my more uplifting sounding songs.

As for the "strange resonance", I'm assuming you mean the quiet scratching as the synth starts to fade out? That's actually part of the reason I chose to use that sound, you can't hear it very well, but the entire time it's playing during the "uplifting section", it's putting out that scratching sound. Why did I use it? It added a fair bit of texture to the song... even if you can't immediately hear it... believe me, it made a difference.

Glad you liked it, thanks for the review!

Like I will say in the other version; i can NEVER decide should stay on piano.
Sometimes I import tracks to piano and clean it up and leave it for no one to see....cuz I LOVE IT.
That said, i know what you mean - not knowing who will like which.

Props to you man; regardless of instrumentation- the Piece itself is GORGEOUS
Also, I've always love your piano tones as you know.
Still yet to get it. Moved up from FLStudio to eiderol...not quite to this level yet
