its really good it kinda reminds me of music from the game nier
I've been away from Newgrounds for so long and thought to upload a song of my own (first attempt at using a music program! Have a listen? :) ) when I saw this song. I remember listening to your music many years ago, and just closing my eyes and enjoying them... this song has so much emotion put into it. Been going through a bit of a rough patch in my life recently, and this song, though sad, definitely helps ease my mind a bit, I love it! Beautiful! Keep it up, and thanks for such amazing music!
Thank you for coming back after all these years and listening to my music. :) I'll give your piece a listen right now!
All I have to say is wow :o
Haha, somebody seems to know their theory, or at least their harmony. I really, really enjoy your use of of functional chords when they happened. At around 1:15 (I think) you improvised a secondary leading tone through a diminished chord, which is awesome in that it was improvised. I really enjoyed the structure of this too. Your improvisational chops are just astonishing. Spectacular. 5/5
It's great to find someone else who knows their stuff!
When I took music theory classes, it seemed like most of my class mates were bored and hated it. I tell you though, I loved it. Every time we learned a new concept like circle progressions, secondary dominants, borrowed chords, neapolitans, augmented sixths, tri-tone substitutions, modes, or anything else, I'd run to the piano and see if I could write a song using the new harmonic vocabulary. I'm still pretty lousy improvising outside of the key of C unfortunately, and my technique is minimal for a pianist. I don't know my arpeggios and just barely finished learning all my minor scales. I have a lot of awesome, sweeping lines in my head when I improvise, but I can't pull it off. So I mostly rely on memorable melodic lines and beautiful harmonies.
Haha, look, you got me ranting! This is what happens when music theory gets brought up. XD
Thank you very much for your review, and Merry Christmas!
That's pure talent right there. I felt a genuine sense of serenity mixed with a bit of loneliness throughout this piece, and the fact that this was done through a blind improv, too, is amazing. Keep up the awesome work, man. I'll definitely be watching out for more of your work.
Thank you so much! Please stay tuned for more of my work to come. :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
