This is a cold improvisation recorded with no planning, quantizing, or mastering; just Fl Studio, EWQLSO, an M-Audio Keystation Pro88, and some creative juices.

The only instrumentation consists of stacked string samples, but I hope you find it enjoyable! :D

No real story behind it... I think...

but there is something to it in the beginning. It starts off really strong with a nice building opening, but it never really realizes its own possibilities. I guess the best way I could describe this is missing its second act, constantly teasing it, but then returning to act one and finally skipping ahead to act three. It's actually a little clever, but it can also be construed as a little unsatisfying. On the other hand, it's this refusal to satiate that makes this piece interesting and attractive. You keep coming back to listen and make sure you didn't miss the climax.

Now, granted, as this is an improvisation, I'm probably reading too much into this, but I figure over-analysis is usually more helpful than under-analysis.

Perhaps there is a little bit of over analysis in your review, but you've made points that are worth discussing. In order for a piece to be as emotionally penetrating as possible, a balance of tension and release must be realized. A piece becomes boring without tension. A piece with too much tension turns into a headache.

When a composer is able to strike the proper balance, however, the music grips the listener and emotes with an intense gravity that draws inward. Having a definite climax gives a piece something to build up to and digress from. In that sense, it is necessary in order to create an interesting shape. The problem with many improvisations, including this one, is that they often lack the balance of tension and release that are more easily molded with planning. This piece has potentially effective ideas, but they never develop and blossom to the degree in which they foreshadow.

You have a wonderful instinct regarding what makes music effective. Are you sure you aren't a composer? :)

Its good.

Seems like you're really strong in the classical genre. This peace is good for the ear. It also could be good because of your experience with the bass clef on the piano. What i think you can do is bring it out a little bit more. For me, it felt like you were strong, but you held back a little.

Still receives a great score, so you're still in the clear. :)

BlazingDragon responds:

I don't venture much outside of the classical realm honestly. Your comment about the bass clef is a little confusing to me. Do you mean that I should have more going on in the bass?

Thanks for the thoughtful input. :)
