A few people have joked about how few non-loops I've been uploading lately. Here's one!

Initially, I figured I hadn't made a good simple piano piece (that's actually played by me) in a while. The ones I have composed have pretty much been too difficult for me to play without major mistakes. Thus, the objective was to make a good piece that I could actually play.
Still, I kind of failed in doing so...

I'm not that great a pianist, so this turned out to be a very difficult piece for me to play -_-
I managed to do okay after three recordings, but I edited out some minor mistakes o.O

I was very lazy when adding the reverb, EQ and such, so this song sounds a bit weird :p
The thing that bothers me the most is that there is a bit of clipping D:<
I'm too tired to do something about it though :/
(EDIT: I did get rid of the worst of the clipping, but I think there's a very small clip left ._.)

Copositionwise, I'm pretty proud of this one :D
It might not be my greatest piece, but I sure do like it, and it's fun to play too. One could argue that it's a bit too jumpy and random, but I like to imagine that it's supposed to be that way. A bit like soundtrack music perhaps?
If only I had the time, I think I'd like to redo this as an orchestral piece :)
I'm being drafted in less than a week though, and won't have time for much anything at all :(

I can sense a resemblance between a few songs and a few parts if my composition, but it's probably coincidental. At least it's not intentional XD

As for the name of the piece, I don't really know... I just decided that this song is a bit dramatic, and explores a few different themes, so I just gave it a quick title. If you come up with anything better, be sure to inform me!!!

I've blabbered enough now. What do you think?


This is nothing short of perfect. Creative composition, incredible playing and extremely euphonic. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks a ton Chaz!
All the stuff you've made is really awesome as well, I've got to say.

You did good! You did very good. I only took off half a star because of the audio quality. :)

Such beautiful music, so happy I stumbled across this ;)

Thanks a lot! :D
It works very well in your animation :)

Oh man, yes. So much good stuff here.

Actually my biggest regret now is not listening to more of your stuff before you got drafted...

Anyway, fantastic work! I do agree with TheDoor, it could use a bit of a break from the onslaught of notes. Buuut, the notes are good enough that I can look past that ;-)

Thanks for the review and for the high score! I'm glad you like the composition :3
Don't worry about you not taking more listens, as this is the first good song I've uploaded in a while :p

I agree that I should have included some parts that break the flow XD

Thanks again!

PS. Conscription sucks ;)

Fantastic stuff. The transitions were smooth so it never felt jumpy to me.
