I just heard this piece at Versilian Studio's page for their EtherealWinds Harp VST and I had to track it down. Fantastic! I can't get it out of my head.
I loved the Grieg reference, btw~
haha, thanks! Yeah, inspired on Grieg and stuff ;)
Splendid! Really admire your talent!
Thanks Motakay ;)
Phenomenal piece.One of the best works I've ever heard from someone on the internet.
Extremely delicate and profound.
Thanks. I take that as a good thing, cause the internet is a huge place :)
Wow, very beautiful, very fitting!
I was going to suggest something but then you did it. :P
I think maybe having some alternatives to the arpeggiation might be interesting. Repeated pedalled chords can really have a great sound at a quiet velocity. Maybe experiment around with other approaches that can provide greater textural diversity. I also would have liked a little trip up into the top register. It's such a cold, icy zone it would match well with the piece and provide contrast to the warmth of the arpeggios in the middle register.
I may have preferred this on a different piano with a bit more dynamic and bite to it. Would you be at all interested/willing to send me the MIDI? I'd like to try a few pianos if you don't mind. The climax just didn't quite get there for me.
Compositionally solid; you're getting up there next to SoundChris in outrageously high standards of compositional quality. Better watch out or you'll be spending a week adding gracenotes and fret noise to flamenco guitar patterns so they sound just right.
If you were really crazy you might consider turning it into a violin or cello concerto or something. ;)
Instrumentation- 14/15 (N/A)
Total: 87/100 (NG: - stars)
You wrote down things I didn't even considered or thought about. All of them are great ideas which I would add in future compositions without any doubt. Thanks for taking time to review the piece! The Midi file will be in your NG inbox ;)
I have no words to describe how good this is. I wish I could compose and play as serious and good as you can. I'm sure you will place high in the competition.
Thanks SourJovis for this kind review.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
