A Piano's Testimony

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.

song really needs some bass... my opinion though

i would give it a 8.5 if i could. i was brought here by X, used this as an ending for his minecraft videos. to be honest i loved his choice, to me this song reminds me (every time i hear it) of this game. anyways at some parts i would like to hear some more bass (my opinion, more thud would help emphasize the higher notes) a longer beginning (say repeat the first 5-8 seconds) im going to see if i can edit it my self and upload it to newgrounds under your behalf. other then that i ABSOLUTELY love this track.

good job and good luck in the future

Very pleasing

The overall beat is really good and the background is my favorite part about this audio and while the vocals are pretty good the background is still better great melody and the piano does a great job.
