I made this composition a couple of months ago, but I thought I might as well upload it here. I remember that I was thinking about game music when I made the song; you know the way they try to communicate feelings, and how they often loop, if they are background music. So, I wanted to give that a shot.

This is a really simple loop, and it's heavily inspired by another song. You should listen to the song "Jack", by David Carney. It's featured in the free online platform game "The Company of Myself", which in turn inspired the name "Loneliness".

As you might notice, the song I made is very similar, in many aspects.

If you'd like to, leave a review and say what you think!

- Only my Yamaha Clavinova CLP - 230 and Audacity were used in the making of this loop.

Wow. For someone who hasn't been scouted yet, this is amazing work. You've definitely got potential.

Since it's a loop, I'd upload it as a loop if I were you. It's just that extra bit of something that aids mental organization quite a lot.

I think it'd help if you were somehow able to make the sounds more on-beat. For me at least, the lack of notes on a beat makes me feel a bit uncomfortable, especially if it's unintentional.

It's great background music. I love the emotion put into it, but I wouldn't mind if the left hand was a bit less repetitive. Of course, it's background music, so pretty much any amount of repetition goes.

You can tell something's a great loop if you can listen to it on loop for long periods of time and not tell when it loops. That's what I like about this song. It's very subtle, so it loops very cleanly. The added bits of high-register piano and bells are just the thing needed to make this sound epic.

This really is great work. I like it a lot, and I hope I can see more stuff of even higher quality in the future.

Wow, thank you very much for that review! It's also spot on!

"Wow. For someone who hasn't been scouted yet, this is amazing work. You've definitely got potential."

=> Thank you very much! I might not have been scouted yet (btw, thanks for the scout recommendation), but I've played the piano for five years now (in a month at least).

"Since it's a loop, I'd upload it as a loop if I were you. It's just that extra bit of something that aids mental organization quite a lot."

=> Well I did upload it as a loop, and it works for me. Are you maybe talking about the genre? I just chose miscellaneous because I didn't pay much attention to the different genres.

"I think it'd help if you were somehow able to make the sounds more on-beat. For me at least, the lack of notes on a beat makes me feel a bit uncomfortable, especially if it's unintentional."

=> Ahahaha, I knew that would come back to haunt me! I didn't even use a metronome as one can easily hear. You see, I just made this song randomly in about an hour, and the first recording is also the last one (if I recall correctly). I've been thinking of redoing the whole thing at some point, and take the production more seriously. I first recorded the piano, left hand and right hand together. Then, without using a metronome I recorded the vibraphone sound which pretty much just inverts what the piano does at some points, as well as fills a bit of extra space now and then.
(I didn't even edit anything, just put the two sound files together in audacity...)
Even the volume changes were done manually, which really bothers me at 1:21 and some other places -_-

"It's great background music. I love the emotion put into it, but I wouldn't mind if the left hand was a bit less repetitive. Of course, it's background music, so pretty much any amount of repetition goes."

=> Once again, spot on. I should've done something more, but I just followed the main idea without thinking any further...

"You can tell something's a great loop if you can listen to it on loop for long periods of time and not tell when it loops. That's what I like about this song. It's very subtle, so it loops very cleanly."

=> Thanks again! The loop might be okay, but I could've made it even better; there is an almost unnoticable 'click' sound when it loops, because of the cut I did in Audacity D:
Also, I obviously "cheated" when I made this a loop. Because of that simple repetitive left hand, it was one of the easiest loops I've ever made. Cannot go wrong :p

"The added bits of high-register piano and bells are just the thing needed to make this sound epic."

=> Yeah, when I made the song I noticed it was a bit boring without anything more to fill out the emptiness, so I added that spontaneously.

"This really is great work. I like it a lot, and I hope I can see more stuff of even higher quality in the future."

=> Once again, thank you so much! This review was really a tug at my heartstrings :D
I am definitely planning on improving the production value of my compositions in the future (well, mostly at least).
