This could be about any family, but for me in this track i think ive put my youth, based on memories of my niece in particular, but moreso in the whole.

Excellent start

I think that this is a nice sounding piece in the early going, until you get to the tricky parts of the later stages, where you weren't quite duelling, but it seemed like you occasionally missed notes, or hit one note too many, for example. It just kind of took the gloss off the piece for me.

With how it sounded as a piece of music, it was great, using the piano as such a wonderful instrument for this piece, but it just seemed to be a little wrong in places with too many sharp or flat notes, that really didn't work well with the low chords towards the end. Perhaps this means that you need to think about making this piece sound like two separate pianos, as opposed to a duet on a single piano.

Actually ill consider that (two seperates) if i ever learn how to 'write music' i probably will.

thanks for the review anyway :)


The intro is amazing. It's very intense, even though you only use the piano here. But the sound of it and the melody is so nice. It creates a very good atmosphere. Makes me think of old times, just like you intended (judging from what you wrote in the comments).

Towards the end it gets a bit "wild". Seems almost as if the piano tries to play all the notes it's capable off in a very short amount of time. Sometimes the notes don't sound too good together (at least in my ears), but overall the piece is very good. I just like the first part with the slow piano better.

Thanks, this is one of my best digitally constructed piano piece up till now, its nice you like it and i dont mind you like the latter part less, i was thinking of making my next piano piece alot slower (kindof a trait im getting from my extra piano lessons im getting once every two weeks :) )

This track is loaded with teenage emotions on several days of my life, both my mind back when, the way i was and the way i experienced things, and in some way things i wanted to say in retrospect on it, seeing as then i didnt really treat people with much respect, i was very selfish and rude especially to my niece, so in some way i too said sorry through this track and for the rest.. well to much to explain anyway. Its a good compliment when more people recognice their own oldtimes through it too, thanks for that.

Sounds fine with just the piano. Center of attention. Great job on the piano work. Had a funky tune in some parts. But it was good. Keep it up man. 9/10 4/5

Calamaistr responds:

thank you man. :)

simply beautiful

nothing more to say

Calamaistr responds:

Thank you, i myself am proud of this one, i first thought to add in strings but i decided against it because the piano 'needs the focus and it would take that focus away. :)

Again thanks.
