I was like, what if I could take my piano improv ideas and make them into a full song?

And then I did.


The hardest part about this song is choosing a genre. If I put it in classical then people get mad at me for having chip, but if I put it in chip they get mad at me for having classical. What to do D:

There are some fantastic moments in this song. Super nice =]

What a beautifully peaceful song…

Experiment was a success. The piano parts particularly appeal to me.

I'd say it definitely belongs in chip, and not in classical.

Thank you! It's interesting how you like the piano but think it's a chip song! :)

the beginning build up is a bit dull, but once it build up at 2:50 it gets really beautiful, great use of pads and synths n__n! i make music also.

johnfn responds:

I know I know, come on johnfn get to the good stuff already! ya slacker

Whoah, how did I not listen to this until now o.O!?

Imagine my surprise when I saw the genre, began listening, and there was a beautiful piano intro with great sound effects and strings. The best thing about it is that it isn't afraid to take it's time.

I then read the description. As you had an experimental idea about blending piano improvisation and add more to it, maybe this should be under experimental >:D
Anyhow... You keep on impressing us with your improvisational skills!

You know, I don't really feel like writing a splendid analysis for this either. There are certainly things to improve, but I really don't care. Some of the instruments could probably be of higher quality, while something could be mixed better. The piano playing the same not all the time is effective, but I think that when the volume is increased you can hear something a bit off with it. Did you use Piano One for this :p?

Anyhow, after about three minutes, there's simply an explosion of greatness. I can barely comprehend how you can keep putting out stuff of this high quality o.O

5:23 = Fun with filters, or just an interesting instrument? Sounds like strings with filtering though :p

The ending is fine, wut is thiz?

Anywho... I regrettably will (probably) not be able to leave as many reviews for a while :(
I'm being drafted, so I won't be as active on the site for some months, although I'll try my best to check in every now and then.

Either way, I'm sure you'll keep uploading masterpieces during that time as well :'D

johnfn responds:

I like how you didn't want to write a big analysis and then you ended up writing this massive review anyways. :D

I really appreciate all the comments you left on my tracks. Especially because I felt like we had really similar tastes in melody/improv stuff. I'll miss you! ;.;

P.S. 5:23 -> filtered strings (bandpass). I love bandpass!
