This composition dated back to mid-2010, but one of my earlier supporters on YouTube asked if I could record this live when I had access to a piano. True enough, I did, in the middle of summer 2011, and I played this. This recording, like the previous piano recording I submitted here, started as a video, but only now, I've found a way to convert it to MP3 and share it with all of you.

The title, "Eventails", is French for "fans" -- as in paper fans. But it's a misnomer for a place I had in mind..... When I wrote this piece of music, I originally wrote this on the piano, rather than a sequencer (the sequenced version came in early 2011). I imagined a vast field of grass and flowers, surrounded by grassy hills. The wind constantly blew in this place. At one or two set points in this field, there are wind turbines, generating power to other places. The fields themselves are largely untouched. Because of the beauty of this place, couples come here to propose to each other, and they spend very special moments in these fields.

That having been said, the right name for these fans would've been "ventilateurs," but "eventails" sounded far better as the name of a place.

absolutely beautiful! not sure why you got knocked for dynamics. for what the composition called for, your sense of touch was spot-on!

may I have your permission to cover this someday? =)

By all means <3 I would love to hear the covered version.

I think I would call this one of your most elegant Pieces of Music; it maintains a very strong Waltz-like Rhythm in Places, and, I believe, can conjure a Myriad of Images in the Mind; something in it reminds me of a Musical Box, but it also brings up Images of stately Dances, restful natural Scenes, warm Nights, and I am not entirely certain what else. I may detect a Hint of Sorrow as well, but overall, this is quite a delight to hear.

Very nice main melody and supports. good variations. Your introduction is very good as well thought a bit more use of dynamics could be applied.
There was a chord at the end that fell so fast/rushed/way too loud, and one during the middle.

Smooth progression through out leading to more melody as time goes on.
