Very nice track: delicate, serene, and evocative. I didn't get the vibe of "proudness"...I would say nostalgia, although it felt more like thinking of some very precious happy moments from the past - like a grown-up looking at his childhood photos and remembering every laughter & adventure.
On the other hand I also get the image of an adult sitting behind the ancient piano in his parents' home and slowly remembering a song he used to play as a kid, and as his hands get reused with the keyboards and his playing more fluid, memories start floating in the room...
The track itself is well put together: a main piano line that is played with emotion, and subtle ethereal pads that sustain the main theme & spread delicate echoed notes - enough to keep the song fresh, but yet simple enough not to overcrowd the piano. '
It's simple to mash together 100 instrument tracks, but difficult to create a moving song with minimal orchestration - and you nailed it :) Good job :)
Not a bad tune. Very atmospheric and relaxing. I can definitely see it being used the way you'd mentioned. I'm having a hard time figuring out your chord progression, though. It's also a little difficult to pick up on the feel of it rhythmically. Are you using 4 or 8 bar phrases? You might want to double-check your phrasing. I do very much like your choices in instruments - pleasing to the ear.
I'm using 8 bar phrases. Rhythm sounds fine to me, but that might just be self-bias.
Thanks for the kind words.
