this is what I wanna hear!
There's something to be said about the amount of beauty you created with improvisation. It seems as if you knew exactly what you were going to play, even minutes before you did. A certain darkness penetrates this piece, as if it were to be played over images of grieving attendees of a funeral, or a slow pan across a shot of a destroyed city. Something like this puts a different image in everyone's head, and I enjoy that.
Beauty and technical mastery aside, I thought there was just a little bit where the song lacked. Around 1:07, the rest and following Diminuendo seemed kind of weak, not that it wasn't part of the piece, but I would have liked just a couple more quarter notes thrown in, to keep the pace.
Throughout the song, the sparse silences served to intensify the enigmatic emotion that the music portrayed, but sometimes, the silence became a little overbearing. I realize that this is an improvisation, and the following may be difficult, but you had some very catchy and appealing phrases in the beginning, which I would liked to have heard repeated throughout the song, as a kind of theme.
Otherwise, this is a stand-up piece, something that can convey a range of emotions, and effectively at that. It's amazing what you created with just a piano.
Talent like that is rare
You mean to tell me this is a straight from the moment, completely unchanged, improvised piece that you performed live, not sequenced with a program or endlessly practiced? It sounded flawless! And beautiful! I could not, with a clear conscience, give you anything less than a 10/10 for talent of that magnitude.
Amazing ambiance there. I am amazed that you created this on the spot... that is fantastic. Needless to say, I am going to be using this in a Youtube video, if that is ok (I have already PM'ed you the info). This song is absolutely perfect for any video needing some kind of peaceful ambiance. I myself sometimes try to do that sometimes... and let me tell you, you are just about an idol to me. :D
Sent ya a reply. Thanks for the kind comment :)
This is a very nice song. It is very calming and soothing, not over the top, and no harsh beats. I actually would like to request your permission to use this as background music for a my first flash game ever. I have listened to about 30+ songs/loops so far, and none of which seemed to work well with my game and my sfx. This one however seems to fit well with it. If I may use this, I would be sure to place your name in the credits for appreciation. :)
Long as I'm in the credits and its a non-profit game, then I'm cool :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
