I've been working on this piece for some time now and have finally finished it. This song originally started off by being an entry into a competition. As I worked my way through months and months of dud-starts for creating the song for this competition, I finally received insight for the basis of this song.

I never really enjoyed any of the other pieces I "created." I never really finished any of the others, because I didn't like they way the flowed or sounded. After getting a foundation for this song, I molded and sculpted the piece to what you hear today. It took a few weeks to finally squeeze out the final note.

You'll have to forgive me for the low quality of the percussion. I'm using Cubase 4 and it does not have very many percussive instrument features. You'll also have to forgive me for the not-so-great quality of the overall sound, but I did my best with what I had.

Unfortunately I never did make the deadline to the competition, because printing out the sheet music was hell, but I did learn so much in my journey across the ever-broadening horizon of music. Hopefully you enjoy this piece. If not, I'd like to know why you didn't, and how I could improve on it to further enhance my experience level in creating pieces like this one.

Thanks to God for the inspiration and long-nighters
Thanks to my other half for multitudes of criticism, a never-ending line of wisdom, and the will to stay up the long nights with me, encouraging my every move
Thanks to you, for spending a moment of your life reading this and listening to my music.

I disagree

Something simple can be expressed clearly, almost like a solo with the help of other instruments, and can have very emotional impact. I very might like this type of music. Thx for the experience.

Good, but a little too simple.

The melody is indeed very pretty, but I think you use it too much(but that's just my opinion, I like it when there are at least 2 or 3 different melodies). Also, you should add more sounds to it(instruments I mean).
