It's great! It made me remember the memories which kind of made me lonely....
I don't even know what else to type in this review!
It's a shame to hear you've had to go through some loneliness, bit I'm glad to hear that the piece works, and that you enjoyed it. Thank you very much!
Dude, I loved it, i love it. This peice sets a mood and has a nice kinda build up to the stronger parts of the song. So, for improv on any part of this its amazing.
Kudos to you, you've done a great job here and i know you'll continue doing a great job.
Thanks, man! I'm really glad to hear that you like the mood and the dynamics. Yeah, parts of the piece were improvised. I had a general idea for the chord progressions throughout the track (but a few spots just kinda happened), and most of the melodies were decided upon on beforehand (though some were not). I'd say it's like 70% composition, 30% improvisation :p
I'll do my best to continue creating good stuff!
This sound has soul.. and touch me big time!
Congratz, man :)
Deserve 5 stars!
Thanks, dude! I'm glad to hear you like it :D
I definitely try to put a part of my soul into my playing :)
I love reverb. I love reverb on piano. The reverse piano sounds lovely. The chord progression is solid. I want to hear a melodic line with it. I like the high notes that start around 2:35... very pretty. And what comes after is beautiful.
The strongest melodic line is 2:35 to 3:20. I would have liked to hear a piano solo... maybe @ 4:00... where the melodic line is supported by the rhythm instead of visa versa.
I think some percussion could fit well into this piece. Some reverse-effected cymbals and such. Maybe even a vocal chorus... that would be fun to mess around with.... with some lyrics too. You chose to have this be a solo instrumental track... but something to think about.
Good work, sir!
I love reberb too, especially on the piano as well! I always need to watch myself, so that I don't use too much xD
I'm so pleased with the reception of the reverse piano! I was a bit worried that only I'd like it at first, but it'd seem like a lot of people are digging it.
Yeah, I get that you'd like to hear a bit more melody in this. Usually, my piano solo tracks are very melodic (take this one for an example: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/661299). But now and then, I like to compose something that works on a more atmospheric level. That is, it sets a mood, uses interesting chords and patterns that work well together, etc. But I didn't want to leave you entirely without a melody, which is why the second half of the track puts more focus on that aspect. Also, I had to try to remain true to broove's style :)
That said, I think there is a melody throughout the entire piece, but it's not repetitive, and it goes along with the rhythm. But I do play the chords in a certain way, which makes for some notes that gain more emphasis than others. My favorite part of this piece is actually 1:45-2:00. Which is interesting, as I think that that part is improvised. It's not complicated, but it was a lucky strike on my part. It puts so much weight on just the right things :p
I could've added some other instruments, I guess. But I didn't have too much time. Other than that, this is my first test go with the reverse piano effect, so I didn't want to mess it up. I actually asked a few people whether I should add anything or not before uploading, and they all thought it sounded good as it is :3
It would be fun to mess around with it more though!
Thanks a lot for your review, and your ideas :D
Absolutely blown away by this, man! Seems like a bit of a change of pace for you, but I suppose inspiration does that to most anyone. You're rocking the octaves and reverse notes really well in this. I'm calm as a motherfucker right now!
Ooh, nice to hear from you! It has been a while :3
Yeah, I try to differ what I do now and then for sure! Inspiration is the motivation that keeps me going xD
I'm really glad to hear that you've enjoyed the listen! Thank you :D
