I promised a lot of people I would make an entirely piano focused piece. I've tried this before, but I always found that I could never be satisfied with planning it out note by note.

Nope, thats simply not the way I play. What you are hearing is a recording of me sitting down in front of my keyboard and closing my eyes and playing entirely impromptu and straight from the heart.

This is something similar to what you would hear if you happened to walk in on me playing to relieve stress and sadness from my life. Which is probably why most of my music is rather sad in nature, as thats where I keep all my life's negativity... I just store my worries and woes in a song and live on happily as I should be.

This is gods honest the first recording with no editing and completely off the top of my head. It's not perfect, but it's me... and I wanted to share that with you. The piano is a beautiful instrument, and it's about time I gave it the solo it's always deserved on my audio list.

So enjoy, and remember... this is completely impromptu... with my eyes closed.

Also this is a good chance for me to mention "The Great Canadian Audio Tour"... if you live in Canada and your an audio artist, you may have a chance to meet with me and other newgrounds artists in an in-person collaboration of talents and interviews. Check the audio forum for the topic of the same name.


Brings up memories...

Like sitting at the dinner table listening to my father tell stories of his childhood and when he was in the navy, or just those little moments in life that bring joy to your heart...but it also brings up other memories...my grandmother that had died of lung cancer, the lose of my dog that we had for before i was even born, my uncle who died of kidney cancer, and my grandfather who just passed away May 12, 2008. Even though this song does bring up sad memories it makes me remember who those people were and so they will live on in my mind and heart for as long as i live...

I literally broke down crying when i heard this. You truly made a beautiful piece. Its saddening, but alone, the sheer beauty makes me want to go out into the world, and become somebody. Thankyou. You have opened my eyes to this beautiful piece. I am going to share this with my friends, and hope it inspires them, the same way it did me.
Thank you, ever so much.
Please, do not let this be the end of your audio submissions to Newgrounds.
I will be listening, as long as you're playing.

This is so beautiful

Wow, this really makes me feel at peace within myself, a fairly rare feeling. Usually beautiful music just makes me feel miserable but this makes me feel calm and satisfied with my life. You are a brilliant piano player. I also play piano but I will never be as good as you. You are an awe inspiring artist. Usually, I don't like the piano but this makes me feel like I can be proud of playing the piano rather than something like the guitar. =) You made my day.

It is not very often that I hear a song made on-the-spot of such proportions. I am deeply impressed. As several others have said, the piano is a beautiful instrument, and the ammount of skill it takes to successfully play the piano is something to be admired. The best songs often come straight from the heart, and this is no exception. Beautifully done, and I am looking forward to more works of musical art that you may provide in the future.

Best of luck.
