Every now and then I get told that my compositions are complex, flowy, or have too ambiguous a structure. Generally, I don't pay it much heed, since I mostly compose for myself. But I thought for once in a while, I'd make a simpler piece for the sake of it.

I focused on the harmony and the atmosphere, and made sure not to make the arrangement nor structure too complicated. I paid special attention to the left hand, since I wanted to compose something pretty in more than just melody. Anyway, enough rambling :p

If you get bored of just listening, you can watch me play the composition as well:

Enjoy!

It's beautiful. I'm pretty sure there'll be more comments about it being not complex enough soon)

Wow, this is a really good use of Una Corda. It conveys the emotion of your composition in such an elegant manner. I believe I stated this about another piece of yours, but I think it's apt to repeat it again here: the harshness of the higher register isn't very pleasing, but it still works imo because it denies full satisfaction to the listener, which enhances the piece's emotional depth. Despite the relative simplicity, you still managed to retain the emotional side of your compositional style :D This is certainly easier to follow than your usual pieces, though that's not necessary better.

I really enjoyed it!

Seems you easily recognized the piano xD
This piece wasn't recorded with the Una in mind, but I ended up using it anyway. If something is actually composed for it, the atmosphere can be beyond incredible! I layered pianos here. I have a cotton Una a bit to the left, a tremolo one to the right, and the noise one in the middle, along with a little maverick for added depth. The distortion sounds are intentional too :)

I know about the harshness of the higher register, and indeed I happen to like that it's not "perfect". I could've easily made them softer and longer, for a more clean sound. But I fancy this soft grit :D

Thanks a lot for the review! I appreciate it :3

This is a good piece. It has good structure but it needed a bit more to it. Save to say I like your complex songs and this one doesn't sound like one of your usual songs. However, it's still good.

Haha, I suppose. I like it the way it is tho!
I think it's a nice change from my usual stuff. But, I do like complexity too! Thanks for reviewing :)
