So many soft songs

This was a good song because it had a very light tone to it and did not try to be elaborate. Of course, this isn't always good because it needs to have more variety. I really did not interpret this as being sad, just something with a soft tune. Now that I listen to it more, I can understand that you were trying to create sad and joyful music at the same time. I like how this gives a visualization to me of delicate fingers going across the piano. It almost seems like it was sung on a flute or something.

In fact, it sounds like the kind of song you would hear a mythical faun performing. You could have more going on, but it's a good tune to listen to. It's especially comforting to listen to this stuff at night because it's so relaxing. This happens to be the end of my work week so what a nice way to start it. Relaxed people should listen to this.


This piece is amazing; truly is. I've listened to it for about 2 hours now, decided it's definitely worth 10/10, 5/5. Keep it up! I'm looking forward to new music like this. :D

Dum dum dum...

Soothing, excellent, and everlasting comfort. How corny! lol, I loved it. I especially liked the way you combined the strings with it and added a little bit of synth in the background. You created this one very well. I also enjoyed the mood change in the middle.


Very touching, and well put together piece. Great work! Even the "Agnryfaic" Visualization looks like its about to cry lol.

Hope to see more!


Very nice piece, but I somehow I agree with MalTheDestroyer - the violin sounds like a fly... It could use some improvement. Aside from that, it really does sound great - sometimes sad and sometimes happy.

PianoFortress responds:

Yes, I agree with both of you. The "violin" is complete shit. But I will rework the song probably this or next week.

Thanks for the review!
