Author Comments

The first of two original jazz piano compositions that I've done. This one is a piano rag that I wrote, and is actually a "new and improved" version of the original, which was also composed by myself over a decade ago. Originally, this was concept music for a video game project that I was working on that never quite got off the ground. It was meant to be the background track for a gambling hall called the Crescent Moon Casino, hence the title. This version has all the piano trills and ragtime goodness of the original, while adding fresh content and greatly improved sound.

Really great! I would like to use it in my Videoproject.
I am an actor and will make a video for presentation .
The Story so far is :" A rich guy is stuck in an elevator and for some reason he fears for his life.
And it is not only the elevatorsituation."
I think it is perfect for the elevatormusic , because it is easy to listen to and fast enough to paint a background for panic and it is as wired as some Tarantinomoviesoundtracks.

ChronoNomad responds:

Well, elevator music is supposed to be upbeat, so I can see how that would work in juxtaposition to what would be going on in the video. Sounds interesting enough. Why not?

If this is a non commercial presentation, just make sure you include song and artist information in the credits somewhere. If it's a commercial project, shoot me a PM and we can hash out the details. Thanks for stopping by, and I appreciate the stars. :)

This is so catchy! I don't know if you've ever played Rot Gut, but I can totally see this song in the game while you're wasting the bad guys with a shotgun!

Well done!

ChronoNomad responds:

Can't say I've ever played it, but senseless violence could always use a little upbeat music to provide a bit of comedic juxtaposition! Thanks for the review and all those shiny stars. :)

curse you dendrago

ripped the words from my mouth before i even thought of them

ChronoNomad responds:

Great minds really do think alike! :D

Toe-Tapping Goodness

And that's saying something, because I generally don't like this kind of music :-)

ChronoNomad responds:

Right on! That really is saying something. I seem to have a funny way of breaking genre boundaries and getting folks to enjoy something that they normally might not. It's not the first time, and I truly hope that it won't be the last.

Thanks a bunch for reviewing! Drop on by the Jazz club anytime. :)

im a newgrounds reviwer

Thx, perfect for my powerpoint game XD

ChronoNomad responds:

Thanks for the 10!

...PowerPoint game? That sounds interesting, but it's too bad it won't be a Flash game. Just make sure that you attribute me as the artist within your project somewhere, and that it's a completely non-commercial (per Commons Deed license laws) venture. Thanks again!
