My second entry in the "Art-Inspired Music Contest 2014"!

Inspired by this piece -

Spent a lot of time on this one. The artwork is beautiful and I really wanted to do it justice. This is the first time I've ever really attempted to work with a piano in this manner. I'm not musically trained so this was rather difficult. Hopefully you enjoy it!

Program - FL Studio 11

EDIT - I tightened up the pacing and changed the mixing a bit. A few minor changes to some of the notes as well.

EDIT 2 - Tweaked the piano to add reverb, stereo, etc. Adjusted the EQ on most of the instruments. Changed the velocity of the notes to try and give it a more natural sound all around.


For the first 30 seconds I wasn't too sure what was going on or where the piece was heading but then it picked up and found its way. I wanted more from the transition around 1:20 after that silence although the rhythmic synth at 1:50 and subsequent build up kept my interest until I heard the Kore Player synth at 2:15. :P No biggie, at least it's used well here, to add atmosphere and not as a main focus.

The song has unusual structure, I guess it's more suited for a visual experience, I can imagine the image you used as inspiration for sure, and I see how it could become a short animation.

Lovely work. :)

Wow. This is actually really dope. Would you happen to have any stems? I kinda wanna give it a trance face lift, if you're cool with it. Shoot me a PM if you want to make this happen.

beautiful, i can imagine myself floating in spce with the milkyway in front of me, beautiful piece of music, wish the melody build up a little faster <- thats just the impatient me, its still a magnificent piece of music, i love the soaring synth, this should be a soundtrack somewhere, its really great, keep doing music!!

Thank you so much! ^_^

Chilling melodies and very fitting to the artwork.

Production is also great. Particularly love the reverbs and stereo imaging. It sounds like a concert hall that bleeds into space itself, as cheesy as that sounds.

Fantastic work, can't really find any criticism to throw at it for practical purposes.

Cheesy?! My good man, I could only DREAM it would sound like that! ^_^

Thank for for the kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

I must say that I'm impressed with the atmosphere you've just provided, especially the intro. It has a depth that shouldn't be looked by and then it gets better with the introduction of more synths and pads. I felt that the piano could need some more reverb and make it distant, like echoes lost in deep space. Sorry, had to throw that in.

The structure is somewhat varied, although I would have probably expected a change at around the third minute just to keep things renewed and interesting. The outro kinda feels a little weak compared to the song, I would have introduced a fading out while gradually increasing the reverb of that synth. The given effect is that the sound gets more blurred in the distance, it's very cinematic.

But no matter, I give you props for experimenting with an enjoyable ambient piece and ultimately for your art choice which is equally beautiful.

Thank you for the feedback! Haha, I've added more and more reverb to the piano in each remaster I've done so far. I feel like it would get a little muddled if I added much more though. I do want the piano to feel like a piano so when the more "spacey" instrument comes in at 1:46 it's a nice change. Going from something human to something more. Thank you for the suggestion about the ending. I'll have to try something like that out!
