Dying in a Dream

Author Comments

Have you ever died in a dream? I have. It sounded like this.


1. The piano solo at 1:20 is basically the meaning of this song. Easily my best piano solo.
2. I started thinking about velocities of notes and how you can change a melodic phrase by changing the velocity... There is a lot to express here. I can't wait until I get a MIDI keyboard so I don't have to do this all by hand though heh.
3. The chord prog is a little unconventional and dark. I like it.

johnfn responds:

Thanks bro!

Please, more dark progressions like this please!

Sorry i havn't checked this one out yet. Been busy re-editing my album. I looked back at some of your tips as well and used some of them.

johnfn responds:

Dark chord progs are hard though...

I was wondering where you were. np, looking forward to hearing your album! (or progress)

wow lovin that piano solo man!

johnfn responds:

Piano solos, man. They're the best.

Very nice man! Quite well done.

Only problem I have with it is that some of the sounds including the off set background noise during the solo (amazing solo btw).

Keep it up, you have talent!

johnfn responds:

Thanks bro. Actually your note sent me into a panic while I tried to figure out if I had accidentally put the background noise (pads) on the wrong note or something. Turned out it was that due to the combination of effects I used they ended up sounding a bit off. Should be fixed now (I changed them a bit).
