-=*=- February FAWM Challenge: Song #2 of 14 -=*=-

Number 1 of a series of short experimental piano pieces.
Animus Intorqueo, twisted mind, twisted in the literal sense like a knotted rope. (Yes, it is a pretentious title. XD Sue me)

This music may make no sense to you, but it is the exact way my mind feels these recent days. Also I've been having these strange impressionistic musical ideas and have been afraid to flesh any of them out until now (recent events inspired me to take the risk of writing and posting them, regardless of how short or incomprehensible the ideas may be).

One must take a risk with original ideas in order to develop true creativity, right? So even if people hate this, it was worth posting.

Enjoy... or something!

Indeed, I AM impressed!

Makes no sense?

What the..! It is so full of emotions and I don't know why you're saying it could make no sense, the sense is obvious and really well rendered.

Awesome style, seriously! Adding it to favs! And you're already in my favs so, I can't add you!


Being one of weirdness, I'm all for creativity in that sense; I encourage and support it. I like the piano, it gives it an off-set feeling, which I like. Nice fadeout at the end, too.


prety good but confused ,your song has little bit of dull image just a little.no effence though

Animus Intorqueo, No.1

Brilliant_I'm a big debussy fan, and what's great for me about this kind of music is that it becomes mine when I listen to it, it just flows efortlessly from beginning to end. I'ts subjective, I know. :)
Can't wait to hear more...
OH, and brilliant playing btw. 5/5

Thanks for the review.

Hate to say I wrote it so fast, I haven't actually learned to play it yet. It's all sequenced carefully on computer. It's short, though, so I'll definitely learn it soon. I think it could be longer, but meh... I'm doing the 14 songs in 28 days challenge, it's good to get as much composition done as I can.

I'm a huge Debussy lover as well. Glad you enjoyed it!
