-=*=- February FAWM Challenge: Song #4 of 14 -=*=-

Number 3 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 one is... there.

Some of the most "controversial" music I've uploaded... as in, you either love it or you hate it. Be sure to check out the others in this series... I think this one, No. 3, may be the last.

I fell off my chair and started hugging my monitor

This song is so GOOD!! I can't quite believe it. It brings hope back to humanity.

Please, God, NO!

I know I discovered these pieces woefully late, but you can't let this be the last one you do. I honestly thought that genius of this sort was dead and gone. The power and beauty in these pieces truly shakes me to my core. If you were to keep going with this, you could easily have something as great as Dvorak's "Slavic Dances" or Debussy's "Arabesques." Even if you don't make any more "Animus Intorqueo," don't ever give up the purity of the simple Piano. You are a master.

Oh, and one last note, "Animus Intorqueo" isn't at all pretentious. I think it's perfectly appropriate. =D

He, WoW..

All three of these are wonderful, "off" pieces..keep it up (or something similar, at least)! Here's to controversy..WooT!
..Amazing piano, by the way; completes/compliments(however you'd like to take it) the mood.

well done

its got a good beat

jk, i like the neo classicist type stuff here and i enjoy the avant -gaurde feel it has.

NickPerrin responds:

lol Nice. "it's got a good beat" is something I joke about every now and then when talking about how people review music like this...

Glad you enjoyed, thanks for the review!


Just amazing. I have never heard a classical piece this good. EVAR. It's absolutely brilliant! I can really feel the twistedness of this piece! I don't usually write reviews, but for this, I'll make an exception! Good job!

NickPerrin responds:

Thanks man. I feel this may be the best piece of music I've ever written, even if not the most accessible, so I really appreciate this review. Cheers!
