Ah, the piano, I honestly missed classic sounds coming from Ocularnebula. +1 for bringing it back! :D
Now, as to the song itself. It's perfect, It's just....perfect. A lot of music on newgrounds these days is either dubstep or just ELEVATOR music, but this. This incites emotions WITHIN ME!!! It's beautiful in ways my limited vocabulary has yet to explain, it's just BEAUTIFUL! Good show, my man, Good freaking SHOW!
I never truly know how many people are into this style of music, but I intersperse these sorts of works occasionally among all my other stuff
it is always somewhat of a delicate balance between the purely electronic and the *other* categories
love it, might need to watch for more great stuff like this by you
I love your piano pieces so much. Look forward to the ones to come :] Kind of a random question; which type of track/which genre do you find easiest to make, and which genre do you enjoy making the most? (those are two different questions, by the way :))
Thank you, and have a nice day.
And again: love your piano pieces.
These are very open ended questions. I wouldn't tap into the genres that I do, if I didn't think there was something interesting to be represented in all of them. I'd say that the fewer elements you can manipulate, the more difficult it is to make a song interesting. So if I'm writing something for only piano, I am limited in that I can only use a piano, but it also means that there are no distractions from the harmony and counterpoint that is being presented.
On the other hand, dance tracks have more elements - ie: bass, kick, percussion, lead, fx, sweeps, and you have to keep in mind structural elements like intros, breaks, buildups. But each of these elements are relatively easy to construct on their own, so there is more focus on putting them together.
Then, there are the miscellaneous pieces that I do, some of which are intentionally experimental, and some of which just don't quite fit into any genre. These are usually fun to make, though sometimes I feel like many of them are misfit pieces that I could have made into something more defined.
The genre I want to write at any given time depends a lot on what I'm in the mood for, as each genre requires different thought processes. Sometimes I just sit down at my piano and mess around for hours not even knowing whether I'll end up creating anything worth posting, and other times I'm motivated to create something electronic with a dance feel that I intend to be "popular", something that will appeal to fans of the genre.
I think it's very important for musicians to be willing to be eclectic, even if they are not consistently so.
Fantastic piece! I love the fast 3/4 and the sort of grinding notes in the transition, not to mention the intense runs at around 2:17. Overall excellence, keep up the good work!
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
