Hmm, the strings and the piano compliment eachother perfectly and this entire song is in perfect balance. Nothing is too loud and nothing is too quiet. Nothing is too low and nothing is too high. Nothing could be better in this song.
In this song i can feel sadness, but also hope.
Now i'm going to listen for the 3rd time and i'll try write down some of the things that i imagine while listening to the song.
A man is sleeping in a bed. He's is slowly waking up and the image is zooming out. Now you can see that he is in a prison.
The man stands up and walks to the bars. After a short moment he walks to his bed again and he sits down.
He starts to wonder how things were, when he was still a free man. He wonders how things were, before the judges said he was guilty. If he could only prove he was innocent...
A flashback begins.
He's seeing him and his kids playing in a large open field. They had so much fun together just running around and playing games.
He wants to go back to that wonderful time and do it all over again.
The flashback fades away and he sees that the guards are coming to his cell.
It's time for the weekly visits and his wife comes almost every week and sometimes she brings the children with her.
He walks with the guards to the meeting place. He really hopes that his wife brought the children with her.
He has been 4 years in prison now. He only has 6 months until his release, but he is scared. He is scared that things can never be the same again.
When he walks through the door he sees his wife and children. They hug eachother and sit down at a table.
He asks his children how things were at school.
When they all told what they did that week they are starting to talk about how things were. They are talking about the trips they went on and the funny things that they experienced together.
The bell rings. Visiting time is over and they kiss eachother goodbye.
Slowly he walks away, with a tear falling from his eye, but also with a smile on his face.
that story was beautiful
truly, thank you for the 10, the story and the compliments^^
I usually don't listen to many piano songs except when I hear them in movies or games or something. I have to say though this piece is outstanding. It held my attention all the way through and the little flam like notes were awesome. (like at 2:40 there was a few, I have no idea what you call them, but I guess they are kind of like a flam on a snare so I just called them that.) I could have used a little more accompaniment, but that might be my style of music talking. I am trying to think how a brighter piano would sound in here, that might sound cool as well, but I definitely like the warm feel to it. Very sad song, overpowering, it is like a dying wish. The cymbals felt a little out of place though, maybe a longer more subtle sounding cymbal would fit more. That is all I can really think of for this one. So I didn't really give you any criticisms, just a bunch of personal opinions and takes on the song. But I think this piece is almost perfect as is.
Fantastic work, keep it up, good to hear from ya, see you around...
Thank you very much for the review,
Yeah I know what you mean by flam notes- I use them alot lately xD
I tried to make this a piano song, with only a few instruments accompanying it, If I could the cymbal would have been alot longer, I'm not really satisfied with the cymbal, but there's so much you can do with free stuff ;P
Always a pleasure
It's been a while since I've listen to your music, but it's always a pleasure to hear one of your compositions.
That one is at par with the others, and I can feel you inspirations very well. I just love it!
I which I could suggest anything to you, but I'm speachless.
Keep it up!
