Okay. We're back in 2013, and an early point at that.
This is just a weird experiment with my electronic piano (Yamaha CLP -230) that I made lazily. I'm still going to upload it though!!! (No one is gonna stop me D:<).

The name has next to naught to do with what the song sounds like, but everything to do with under the circumstances it was composed!

You see, I have a neighbor that doesn't like the hacking sound that is made when I play the keys (we have paper thin walls, and the sound travels to his apartment). Almost the entire time while I was composing this - what could it have been... One and a half hour maybe? - he was now and then banging with his cane on the roof (our floor). That was quite irritating (this was in the middle of the day, and I have all the right in the world to play my piano), so I thought of a way to name the piece after him. Old Angry Man thus turned into Ancient Resentment.

Whoops! I'm in a hurry again -_-
Gtg, cya.


Cool! I like the instruments in this one. It's pretty upbeat, which is strange based on the title and theme apparently surrounding the piece. Might be good for a videogame menu or something. You should've made it loop! Anyway, not much more to add...looking forward to more of your 2014/2015 pieces. ;D

Hi! Sorry for the late response, these are busy times...
Well, as I mentioned, the title and the piece have little in common :p
Oh my, maybe I should've made it loop XD
I'm looking forward to my future pieces too, as well as yours!

Nice. Great mood! As usual, you have some really awesome, feeling-invoking chord progressions. Still can't believe you have the capacity to memorize them, even if you spend an hour and a half on them!

Unusually for you, the instruments you use here feel like they lack a bit of your usual punch. Also, rhythmic variation! Triplets get boring.

As for the guy below me, i have no idea why he did that because a.) you're allowed to use other melodies as long as you rearrange them, and b.) you're not supposed to zero-star stuff like that. I suggest reporting him.

Great song! The army is slowly coming to an end...

Thanks, as usual, for reviewing even this kind of old crap XD

Well, the memorizing part is mostly subconscious, which makes it a lot easier. As for the chord progressions, I think they actually are pretty cool, but this is a really short song and still the chords are a bit repetitive :'D

I definitely agree that the intruments lack punchiness! Maybe I was subconsciously trying to stay calm while recording while my neighbor definitely wasn't (that, or poor intrument choice :p).

As for the guy below me, I don't have the heart to report him, as he gave D-Pression a 5 star review ;)

Still, I agree that that review sucks and is totally unnecessary...
Maybe he had a bad day?
