When I'm grown-up I want to become a musician like you =)

Seriously amazing. It gives me that you get from a fast paced song, like you almost want to get up and start dancing, and then it's coupled with the feeling of a real smooth and light piece that makes me want to stay still and listen carefully to how amazingly simple yet intricate the piece is.. I'm stunned. It truely is a needle in a haystack.

WouterPiano responds:

Thank you very much!

Gave me goosebumps! Hehe
This is a really well-composed and mastered work. You did an excellent job on the piano. A lot of piano I've come across isn't mastered so well; the timbre is butchered by poor compression and equalizing.
(my own attempts at piano generally end up mastered that way. XP)
But here, the instrument is done justice. No ringing, and every note sounds clear.
Not to mention how moving the composition is itself, nor how adeptly it was all put together.
Which brings me to ask: was the piano played by hand? It has that kind of quality to it.
It really is like something from a dream; almost ethereal.
My only problem is that the tone of the orchestral bits sounds a little too "bright", that is, they stand out a little too much for me. A softer timbre in those would probably have left me with no complaints.
That being said, it's not really a big deal. The whole piece is excellent, and I'd like to hear more!

WouterPiano responds:

Thanks for the comment! It's all played by hand;) Used FL Studio for the production..
Do you mean the orchestra at the second couplet or at the second chorus? I'm really trying to improve
every song;) So thanks again!

wow just gorgeous
The lightheartedness just grabs me in, and where this seemed to start out as great background music, it later distracts me away from what I was doing to marvel on what I am hearing. The melodic and rhythmic piano layered with the strings is crafted masterfully here. Subtle, but works beautifully. Good job on the production and execution on this.

WouterPiano responds:

Many thanks for your message! Im very glad that people really listen on this website.. Music is My greatest passion!!

Sounds very Isaac Shepherdy. Love it. :)

WouterPiano responds:

Haha thanks! I didn't even know Isaac Shepherd so i listened.. Sounds great! So thanks for your comment;)
