[Don't worry if the track doesn't play at first; it's very long so it could take a time to load; please be patient :]

First and foremost:


This is my longest recorded piano improvisation to date. Why did I do it? See, this is part of a very special project.
More information about it can be found here:


This improvisation is dedicated to a good friend, and an avid Newgrounds user, who's currently known as MactaMendax.


He makes some incredible music, but has had his fair share of rough patches in life. So a few of us musicians here on NG decided to get together and create a collab album, dedicated to SnowTeddy. What you hear here, is a part of that result. Do check out the other pieces, and most importantly, check out MactaMedax, and show your support!

Additionally, we decided that we'd promote a charity through our joint efforts, so please, check out this link, and consider donating even a small amount:


Back on (to the) track, I suppose.
I can't imagine many to actually listen to this whole improvisation, but feel free to jump around and listen to certain parts, or have it on as background music (or whatever else you come up with). The original filesize actually exceeded NG's 250MB limitation, so I had to lessen the quality ever so slightly.

I also felt it would be a waste to record only the audio of myself improvising for 2 hours straight, and not also do the same for a video. So... I did also film myself playing! You can check it out here:


I recommend the part between approx 40:30 - 48:00, if you want to have some idea of what part to listen to/watch.

Thanks for the support, and once again, please extend that to MactaMendax, the charity, as well as the rest of the music and people involved in the project!
