A Piano's Testimony

Share Download this song

Author Comments

I am using this song as my entry for the Drum and Piano competition. When I listen to this song there seems to be some sort of high pitched ringing going on, this is not present in the original song. For some reason when I uploaded this to Newgrounds it became present. It almost sounds like a bit crush effect was added or something of a similar nature. I mainly only hear it in the beginning and the end when the piano is soloed, but I wanted to address that issue because it is not present in the original mp3. Thus there isn't anything I can do about it. I'll be posting this to another site as well allowing you to download a better quality version if you wish. A link will be posted in this area for that as soon as possible.

As for the song itself, the competition was quite straightforward. One needs to use both percussion and a piano in the song in some form, and the idea is for them to be the primary focus. Oddly enough the idea of "piano" extends to synths when listening to some of the examples to give contestants some ideas. So there is some wiggle room, but I decided to go with the more literal rout using a real piano and simple Cuban percs in one of my new sample packs.

All in all I really like this. I wanted to keep it simple and realistic, as well as melodic and pleasing on the ears. Instead of heavy chords I rolled them and created a melody over top of those rolled chords which gave the piano a very fluid feel.

I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed composing it.

It definetly deserves to be up in the top, and a ten...I thought it was incredible. Thanks for killing two minutes and thirty-one seconds of my life with a strageic melody master piece.

The piano is so melodious and rings like the liberty bell. This song is amazing, and really mellows you out. Thank you so much for your submission.
