it sounds even cooler if play both versions right after the other
I heard the original and now this.
I feel you get the emotion across very well, and you made such a nice little relaxing piece. But I'm a bit torn. The bells were harsh, but I feel they did add something to the song, some depth, they just needed a softer sound, that's all. Though I have to say, it goes from a fine song to a fine lullaby without those bells.
I like it. I like it a lot.
After I heard this in a flash recently, I felt inclined to listen to it on more of a loop. It's very good, and one of those pieces that really make you feel emotion in a song. I think pretty much everything works together in this song. It gets a little repetitive, but that's okay. And whenever I listen to it, it really makes me kind of sad, in a 'remembering the past' sort of way. I think you have a lot of different ways to go in regards to your music. This sort of piece is very memorable, and I even felt obliged to comment on it. This is one of the few songs that I've heard that really make me think 'Life is beautiful.'
i wanna go to sleep now haha..
Right on, dude. Glad I could mellow you out.
The lack of variety...
There's only one thing that I thought brought this piece down from being truly great... the lack of variety in the instruments.
Imagine, say at around :52, some background violins could come in, or maybe some other instruments -- the piano would be a magnificent opening, and it would be an amazing piece.
I kept on expecting an amazing entrance, a whole orchestra of instruments... but I felt a bit disappointed... it's just such a beautiful piano piece -- with anything backing it up, it'd be so amazing.
Still, as a piano player here, I loved it anyways. The chords sounded great, and the music sounded crisp (If it turns out this isn't a piano, I'll feel stupid. :D). The tune's catchy, and it's something that I'll probably remember a day or two from here.
The lack of variety and a rather repetitiveness to the song bring it down -- it's so close though!
No, it's not a real piano. Just about everything I do is digital-- hell, I don't even know if the fingerings required to play this on one piano are executable.
As for the repetitiveness, hell, maybe you could work on it for me, and you use the piece however you want? Like, it'd be yours? I don't know what to do to it.
Thanks for your kind words, and for your critiques (even the ones I disregarded-- hah! I chuckle at me). It's great to hear some thoughts from a fellow musician.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
