Just a short piano piece i made to get the hang of a program called "MuseScore". It feels a little empty, any thoughts on improving it?

This little piece is beautiful but dissonant like hell, I believe that's why you got the stupid 0 bombers. I do enjoy this piece tho and I think you've created a nice feeling with it.

To the review,

With a new DAW and all, the work is nicely done. I think you can change the levels of the piano abit in order to make it abit more "human". Right now I think it sounds like a machine playing it with all notes on X level. Change that abit and it'll feel more alive.
The arrangement is nice, the pauses feels abit empty tho (the pauses when you strike the keys and it just goes to flat silence) . Sometimes the pauses are random, like around the 22 second mark. If you can get it to flow together better, you can probably get a better production out. I'm not saying remove all pauses but you could overlook some of them. I really like the dissonance and it's beautiful in it's own way.

I imagine a pool of water with a footprint underneath it, printed in dirt but heavily damaged by the weather. The water dissapears and it lightens up, leaving nothing but the dirt left. Suddenly an army appears, soldiers walking towards the horizon with sadness in their eyes. They proceed to think about what they've just been witnessing. They march like zombies and no one is speaking, walking over the dirt with their already broken shoes. It starts to rain as they dissapear in the horizon.

That's my "song-story" of this piece.

I say you did a good job composing it but there are things to improve on.

Cheers mate

Thank you very much for the review, and the interesting story. I agree on everything you've said, and will pay more attention to the sound of the piano next time, and bear in mind what you've said about the pauses. Thanks again, much appreciated.
