Hermit's Lament

Author Comments

I haven't left my apartment in three days really now. Well Once where I walked to Mcdonalds ate 2600 calories of food in one sitting and then walked back. Anyhow other plans were made, failed, and now I have been hermiting it up. In my mellow-dramatic mood where I have been drinking frozen juice and eating frozen pizza while playing kingdoms of amalur while watching kitchen nightmares on the side I composed this random piano piece in D minor. Enjoy it!

Oh this is nice. The epitome of classy. And then I read your author's comments and I have to wonder what goes on in your head that gorging McDonalds and watching Gordan Ramsey makes you come up with this.

WingoWinston responds:

It was just a feeling of melancholy from the amalgamation of a series of unfortunate events. My head though is still an entirely different question. None of us are normal, but in the public's eye we all strive to be "normal". I allow people to view the unadulterated version of my self. The one that eats McDonalds, watches Kitchen Nightmares, and composes classical music haha. That's the life for me.

thanks, im gonna use ths in a short movie, i'll give you credit :D

WingoWinston responds:


amazing man.. calmed me right down. quick question, do you use Fruitlopp studio? and if so what addon/sound packs?

WingoWinston responds:

A lot of people ask me that, but in fact I use Finale 2011. I use the Garritan VST instruments with human playback. This is the steinway piano with preset reverb and baroque human playback. All of this is included with Versions of Finale 2009 up I believe. Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed it!

A very musing piece.


WingoWinston responds:

Listen to Bach. Then to more Bach. Then for some contrast listen to A little Beethoven, Chopin, and Schubert, and then back to Bach. Then some Corelli, Vivaldi, and Purcell. Specifically Corelli's "La folia" Violin Sonata in D minor and Pucells Harpsichord Suites... he has a billion of them.

Bach is the baroque king obviously :P But, early romantic stuff will be fairly similar.

One of the most important things to getting a "stereotype" baroque song is playing in a minor key really and making it sound deep and with sorrow, but with purpose. That would be your stereotype baroque in my mind haha.
