This is an original improvisation I did a while back. Not much else to really say but enjoy. I know it may sound odd in some places, but again this is all improvisation. I didn't even take the time to write parts of it before hand so it's bound to sound a little jarbled in some places. Hopefully that doesn't hinder this piece too much.

Unique! It does not need too much improvement.

The impression of the song is like reading one of James Joyce's novel - the players fingers dance as the player's consciousness flows. Telling the truth, I do not think that you need to do too much improvement which may oppositely damage the image the song brings to the listeners. Just fixing a little bit is already OK.
Since I'm not a professional audience, I'm afraid that it is beyond my ability to give you any professional comments.


I like your tendency to avoid easy V-I resolutions. It extends the lines and makes it more interesting. I wish I could improv like this. Sometimes bass chords are repeated too often without any change and are also too loud for doing this. That's about it though. Sounds really good, especially your use of unconventional chords and 7th chords. Is it based on something that's already written

DPK4 responds:

Not really, I just sorta started playing and it sounded good, hit the record button and took off. thank you for the compliments though! I do agree some of the bass chords were too loud at times but eh, I probably was hitting blanks during the performance but, hey, our dreams do that too, sometimes they repeat things over and over, and other times they fly all over the place, much like this piece demonstrates.


I loved all in this piece, all is perfect. The piano sounds great and the melodies are aweome.
Keep the AMAZING work UP !!\m/

It's Superbly Perfect

I see visions dance around in my head that twist and bend within my mind. I like this piece I really do. Your improvisation with the title choice match perfectly. For no one man or woman knows where a dream will go next and that is what makes this audio perfect in every single way. There is nothing left out and nothing that needs adding. I suggest though you don't overdo improvisation when submitting audio here though... you'll end up killing what good you got from this if you do. I suggest you record an improvisation and listen to it to see what you can add and take out. Other than that great job on this audio. I really enjoyed listening to it... it gave me a sense of peace amongst myself.

DPK4 responds:

This is quite perhaps, the best response I have ever gotten from anyone about my works, after submitting to several places, you have by far given the best review I could ever receive for this track. I appreciate the kind words and criticism you've given for my pieces. I will definitely take a look into making another improvisation and then rework it from there. But as you said, I don't believe I could ever change this piece. It would feel... wrong... no matter how much cleaner it'd sound... Words do not express how much joy it gives me to hear people experiencing my music first hand. I guess I'm not used to it much at all really. ^^; haha!

Thank you again, I'll hold this dear to me as you did to my piece.
