Amazing piece of piano, I really love this one. Keep compose and play piano!
Thank you! I'll give your music a listen.
This is improvisational? OH MY GOD.
This is the first time I've ever favorited someone just after hearing a single piece of theirs. I love the whole thing and you have some ridiculous skill. I'm a biig fan of the monochromatically descending baselines that you do a lot in the beginning of the piece (and a little towards the end too).
One of my favorite parts is that chord at 3:09, I think it's Fm(?), and then how at 3:14 it goes to E, soo good raghh. Also that ascent at 2:21, such a pleasant surprise. And the sweeping arpeggios.
This piece is amazing please write more music soon.
I used to hear those chromatically descending bass lines in other songs and fell in love with them. In my music theory classes, I found out that they were usually made of secondary dominants and borrowed chords. I spent quite a bit of time learning them in every inversion and trying to figure out how to chain them together. It really opened up a whole new sonic palette for me, and now they come pretty much automatically.
Thank you so much for adding me to your favorites. I really like the work you do, and your piece "the fight" absolutely blew my mind. I really wish that I had those kind of chops in electronic music but have absolutely no idea where to start. You should have way more fans with the music you make.
I like your comments...cryptic and intriguing, but more importantly, your piece makes it compelling to figure out what exactly it is that one would long for after hearing this.
There are some jazz qualities to this piece, but it doesn't completely define itself into just one category. Just as in your description of what you love to do, this piece definitely tells a story.
This is a very hopeful piece, and as I listen to the beginning, I get a sort of feeling that yearns to reflect on the past. I like the spaces you leave in between motifs as it portrays one pondering over memories. I also appreciate the moment at 2:07--sounds like it's a descending bass line from C major>B dim>A minor> and to G Major. It goes pretty quick so I'm not sure on the accuracy of that statement.
The Golden Number ratio is at about 2:52, and your climax is pretty close to that. I thought that was interesting, and the combination of that deep bass note on C with the right hand playing a retardation of the note D to E is pretty wonderful.
Do you tend to write out your work before completing, or do you memorize based on improvisation and develop from there?
I'm going to reveal a secret that I had decided to leave out of the description; this piece is a cold improvisation, and I wanted to see if it could pass for a standard composition.
I choose a motif within the first few bars of improvisation and brought it back on numerous occasions to create a sense of structure. There are a few techniques that I consciously use for contrast, such as changing register, dynamics, tempo, chord progression, and accompaniment pattern.
The chord progression at 2:07 is F major, E major, D minor, G major, making what is essentially a IV, V/vi, ii, V progression. The tricky thing is that the secondary dominant (E major) does not go to A minor as you would functionally expect but instead skips to the next chord in going down the circle of fifths (D minor). None of that was preplanned, but that is my post analysis. What you pointed out about the Golden Ratio is highly interesting.
Thank you for the thoughtful review my friend.
The piano is a beautiful instrument, and this song shows just how beautiful it can be when handled by the right person. This was a joy to listen to. Thank you for uploading it :)
Ah, you are too kind! I'm happy that you enjoyed. Thank you for your review.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
