Rain induces sleep


very nice

The quality is kinda bad but surely the music is really great though. Nice job.

Thank you good sir ; ]

Very peaceful.

The mix sounds like it is slightly underwater to me, but obviously if you're a pianist not an engineer that isn't very helpful. The upper notes on your piano sound very strange... is this a synth that you added or is there some sort of filter on the recording?

Was this improvised?

Thanks for sharing this, looking forward to hearing more of your stuff.

Yes, there is an amb piano and classical piano sound playing at the same time. Also, I used arpeggio (very touchy and sometimes messes up my song, but it has a cool grand piano effect) and release (sutain effect) for the middle part of the song. I used transpose, then at the end, I upped the pitch with my recording software.

The recording has some issues, but still... as a completely improvised song (yes, this is improvised), it seems to go pretty well. It only took me 10 minutes to do all that technical stuff.

One early Saturday morning I thought to myself, "What would happen if I turned on recording software and just started playing random notes on my Yamaha MM6...?" So that's what I did for about 30 minutes, and I had a creation!

Random notes can become something beautiful... so is this a gift? who knew...

Very beautiful, need more of this

This is the kinda music I visit the newgrounds audio section for, seems like trance is taking over the audio portal lately. Anyways, im starting to rant but your work is great, keep it up.

Well, I tell ya', it's like reading a book. I just can't pick one up, but if I do I read the book front cover to back cover... music, all I have to do is start playing and awesomeness comes out of nowhere... It's awesome... heh heh

I can do this with almost every genre of music, BUUuut... classical is easy. This is played using the Yamaha MM6 by the way. OH, the wonder of 8 lb synths... NOW look who's ranting :D
