I have been struggling to compose a sad song for several days. With the theme of the current MAC being Sorrowed Tears, I had to come up with something fitting. Yet I've had no inspiration. I began to write one song, but I could not find a way to get past the intro. I had given up any hope, and simply submitted an old work.

Tonight, however, I was stricken with sudden inspiration. I began to ponder my life, my decisions, etc. Shortly thereafter, I also watched part of Spider Man 3. Without spoiling the movie, a certain sad point in the story was accompanied by some mournful music, and it gave me shivers. I HAD to write a song. I ran upstairs to the computer and got to work. 45 minutes later, this is the result.

This song does not represent simple sadness, nor regret, nor bitterness. I does not represent the death of a loved one or the emotions that such brings. What this song represents is guilt and true sorrow. It is the feeling you get when you realized that you hurt the person you loved most; that you made a huge mistake and now have to bear to burden of your actions. It represents the consequences of your greatest sins. It represents true remorse for your actions.

I truly hope you feel the sheer emotion of this song. It came from my heart, and expresses better than any words what I have felt recently.

Very nice work.

Tearful Indeed

What an amazing song. I can certainly tell you put your soul into it.
An image definately popped into my head with this one. A man, walking alone on a path. The forest he walks through is not that of trees, but of buildings. He is looking at the world around him as he walks, a solemn xpression on his face. He sees children playing, couples holding hands, a women feeding the birds. Such happiness has left him. He walks on. The sun starts to set. The sorrow that grips him is not a simple sadness, that fades with a smile. Rather, an intricate web of emotion, that has left him where he is today. As he watches the sunset, the scene fades.
Inspiration often strikes unexpectedly, I know it has for me, I wish it would grace me with a song like this. This is a truly amazing piece of work that encompasses sorrow in a way I don't think I've heard before. Your pieces are some of my favorite, and this one didn't dissapoint. Keep up the good work.

I love the imagery you've set up. It is very poetic. Your short story here has inspired me, and for that I thank you.

I've found that if you always wait for inspiration to come, you'll end up with very little musical output. Sometimes, you've just got to say, "I don't care how I feel, I'm going to compose!" The song may end up sounded terrible, but you'll at least gain a bit more experience. If you force yourself to get started, inspiration will often present itself oddly enough. You've just got to stick with it and keep the music coming!

Thank you for the review sir. :)

Desperately poignagnt. Filmic. Loops well enough..

All your work seems really filmic!

The song is wonderfully paced, the notes you dropped in from a high octave twisting my emotions round its little finger.

The faster part towards 1:30 provided a lovely contrast and nice respite from the tension of the earlier sections.

The song even loops well enough to be used as a background tune in a section of an RPG or something along those lines.

I don't have any real suggestions for improvement. Er... maybe it could be about 0.2s longer or 2s shorter, to make the loop match the beat perfectly?

Nigh on perfect.

Filmic is good; I'm considering film scoring in the future, after all. :P

I feel as though high notes really have the ability to grab you by the throat and demand your attention. Especially in a sad song, they really seem to pull at the heart strings.

Respite is a good word to use at around 1:30. I had built tension with the high notes at the beginning and was going for emotional release at that point. I imagine someone truly battling with themselves at the beginning, and then simply pouring their heart out that 1:30 mark.

I hadn't intended for this to loop, but I can now see your point. If anything, I think I would cut it just a tad bit shorter personally.

Thank you for the wonderful review. It is well thought out and helpful! :D

This piece smacks of the dearly departed, a brother in arms that fought side by side with his now sole remaining comrade, who sits atop a hill, looking into the valley, where his friend made his last stand.

It reminds me of the futility of war, which is where the piano plays its best part - the softness of the note contrasting with the strings in the background so nicely.

Thank you, I appreciate the review. Though I never imagined war or death with this one...It was more geared toward the emotion of regret.
