This composition is dedicated to my friend, Justina. She is going through some very difficult times right now. Please check out her GoFundMe, and consider donating whatever amount you see fit!


I gave a small amount as well.
Even if you can't afford to empty your wallet at the moment, we'd appreciate it if you helped spread the word instead! Thank you for your support.

I composed this piece today, in less than an hour. I suppose that I became quite inspired by the situation, and my will to help.
I also recorded a video of me playing; if you want to see it, I'm sure you'll manage to find it.

There's not much more to say, aside from enjoy the listen.

Beautiful, emotional, melodies. As a huge sap I'll admit this honestly jerked a couple tears. Don't let that go to your head. I'm super easy to jerk these days. You have good hands. Uh, I mean for playing the piano. Your hands are good at playing piano.

Punnuendo intended.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Little known fact: This composition was actually partially inspired by "Watching Winter Waterfalls". After learning to play your riff, I realized I haven't made many compositions where there isn't as much of a direct melody, as a repeated pattern of notes with the right hand. Even rhythmically, you may notice the similarities!

I'm glad you enjoyed this :)
Also, I do indeed like my hands. They're very useful when it comes to playing nice melodies indeed ^ ^

I love this. I have two visualizations while listening, a snowflake and a fish happily swimming in a stream.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks! It's interesting that you see a fish in your mind's eye, when listening to this :O

That´s beautiful with a strong touch of Jan Tiersen. I am crossing fingers that your friend finds the help she needs. Just read her sad story.....

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks, Azhthar. After composing it, I thought it had some of that Yann Tiersen style as well :O!
Cool to know I'm not the only one :)
Yeah, life is harsh sometimes. Let's hope the future is more bright!

You're wonderful, mister.^^ Lovely song as always.. I am favoriting it to my side of NG to help promote and checking out the gofundme page. I hope things work out for your friend!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you!
And thanks for favoriting it too :)
I hope things will work out for her too! We'll just have to wait and see.

Song quality is great, and the intentions behind it are even better. :D

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks, man. I'm glad you liked the composition, even if it was made in a rush :)
