Every year, Stupor organises a Secret Santa event in the Audio Forum. Basically, you post in a thread saying what kind of music you want, and then, after a certain time period, each person is paired up with another person and has to make a song based on what this person asked for. Nobody knows who's making their present. On Christmas day, all the songs are shared with each other.

I had the pleasure of making a track for the user Nimble, someone whose melodic talent I really admire. I had a super tough time working on this because, and this comes as no surprise to whoever listens to my music, I usually throw a hell of a lot of instruments in my music. I basically stripped everything down to strings, piano, and the odd timpani/cymbal roll here and there, which really took me out of my comfort zone.

Hope you like it!

Nice composition! The use of silence in the beginning of this piece is instrumental in and of itself. The climax is fantastically done, those strings are always moving.


Step responds:

I love silence in sentimental piano pieces. Really gives the listener time to absorb each note, if you get what I mean.

I was nervous about the climax coming in too abruptly or leaving too prematurely, but I'm glad you don't think the same! Thanks for the review.

This piece is great all over the place. Tough to nail down, though it could do with a longer run. 85 seconds is barely under three modern commercials these days. [/nitpicking]

<3 it!


Step responds:

Aw thanks! I agree it is short and the truth is, I had a hard time lengthening it since this is really out of my comfort zone, but regardless I'm happy you enjoyed it.

Thanks for reviewing mate.

I think you did well. The piece sounds like one of a kind and its thought provoking mood really gets to me here. Despite having just a few instruments you've shown that a true master does not necessarily need a full orchestra to make his music sound strong and impressive.


Step responds:

Hey man! Thanks for dropping by, really glad you think this experiment was successful. Thank you for the review :3.

I enjoy how unpredictable this piece is, usually i can easily ''guess'' every progression, but not on this.
Thats often a mark for me to listen to more and put a composer in higher esteem.
