This nocturne is pretty long, so much so that I had to condense the file to make it below 8m, so if the quility is a little rough, that's why.

It has four general parts, the first signifies the sunset, the second, the first of the cloudy night hiding the moon, the third of the moon emerging from the clouds revealing its simple elegance just before the fourth part, the sunrise.

There's not much more to say than that. if you see something else, let me know in a review; i would love to hear your many perspectives.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


loving some newgrounds piano :D
the abrupt pauses (i.e- 1:21,) seem out of place.
the parts at 1:20-1:30 just sounds odd altogether
overall sound is very tin-ny which deters the song
the velocity change at ~4:45 is a bit much, it becomes wayyyy too quiet
abrupt ending is very different from the general style of the piece

overall, nice composition. glad to see some other piano

Naroghin responds:

There are quite a few things that get lost in this piece when it is performed by a computer. The lack interpretation of dynamics, for instance, ruins vital elements of this piece, such as the parts in the beginning that sound odd (due in part by the fact that the fact that the dynamics can't be interpreted in such a way that the melody comes through without losing the bass part), and the part at 4:45 that seems too abruptly quiet. Among the other things that are missing is a live piano, giving a warmer and darker tone. I tweaked the brightness down quite a bit, but I had to stop before the attack got too muddy. As for the ending, it signifies the cloudless sunrise, which would be (and is) a very abrupt ending to a long and lulling night.

Thanks for the review, I appreciate your comments. It's always good to get opinions of those who play the instruments for which I write.
