Very moving

The music is peaceful, but powerful at the same time. It draws you in and yet seems so distant. A beautiful peace, must respect. I read the previous review and about what you were trying to portray and your do so very well.

Repetitive

There are a lot of ways to portray silence, but this on really doesn't evoke that at all. It fits better in a reflective piece, but even that would fall over.

This is mainly due to the definite lack of any sort of melody, though you could call that descending note structure a melody, it's very simple and evokes little in the way of anything.

Also the repetitive nature of the piano only serves to emphasise this.

It would have been a better idea to have single, clear strikes of the piano and careful, sparing use of backing. Silence is best portrayed when juxtaposed with sound. In other words, nothing protrays silence better then silence itself beside noise.

Apologies if this sounds particularly nasty as far as reviews go. It is meant to offer constructive criticism bluntly. Take it or leave it, as you will, I am merely telling you what I think.

Bitca responds:

Full title of the song is actually In Silence, His Love. It is about someone who could not express himself to the one he loved and had to remain silent and supportive as a good friend and watch her fall into the arms of another man.

As I mentioned in the description this is a conceptual piece that basically means that I was just freestyling, so to speak, with the little bit of footage I got from the film. The repetitiveness, although I do hear you, was intended. This piece was just supposed to capture one brief moment in the film, and that was he sees her for the last time.

On the other hand, I completely agree with single strikes of the piano. That was something I really considered once I´d posted my work. It is not too late though. It is only conceptual.

No need to apologies, your criticism was appreciated.
