An astronaut floats in space all alone. This is a song that represents loneliness and isolation. It's in 3/4, so it's easy to dance to, if you're from the 18th century, and have a big white wig on your head. =P
I really enjoyed writing this song, and I hope that I can take this back to the traditional form of composition, and notate it out, because I made sure that when I was writing this, it would be possible to perform on a piano/keyboard, unlike some of my other compositions that would require more than two hands to play. So, I'd like to learn how to play my own composition, lol, but for now, here's what I made with my computer. A live recording wouldn't have the delay and panning, so I think it'll work out well as a performance piece and as a digital composition.
I hope you like it, the first 5 (or so) notes are quite random, and are there to break the mood before the actual song begins. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy, take your mind to the deepest corner of space, where you are all alone.

Don't forget to rate and review, I'd love to know what you think of my music, all reviews are appreciated.

amazing song.


I just love how it has that traditional waltzy undercurrent but with that nice, simple tune on top. I was never quite one for waltzes, but man. Awesome.

And I thought your techno was good...

I started out listening to your DnB songs and your Techno/Trance. But i decided to check out your classical stuff. Dude...you blow me away with this stuff.
Keep up the phenomenal work!

Blown away...

Dude... there is so much that you could do with this, talking from an animator's point of view. Wow, I am really inspired, as I always am, by these lonely, emotive pieces, I feel an urge to animate to it. Thanks a LOT for the inspiration, I really feel I can do something great with this. I hope I dont let you down.

Thanks for the review, and the 10.


Absolutely beautiful. Please don't be put off by my 7/10 but I'm a very harsh critic and 7/10 for this is pretty damned good!

I was totally drawn into this song and got lost in it. I feel some kind of inner contentment after listening to it.

A kind of lonely happiness. A feeling of solitude comes from having the one instrument, but it works for me wonderfully.

I am an artist (of sorts) and in early staged of working on short animations, and I thought this track would fit well into one of them, having it as the only sound, no FX or voice. Would you be willing to maybe change a couple of notes towards the end to make it feels like there's a climax rather, a feeling of an end to a hardship/endevour? If not, I can still work with this track just maybe cut a couple of seconds of it? Msg me if you like :)

Now, onto the rest of your work ... :)

Hey, sorry it took me so long to respond to this review. Thanks for the criticisms. I'm guessing that by now you've long forgotten about this review, but I'm humbled by your offer.
Thank you.
