I'm back with another piano piece, after a short break.
This one is a bit special, haha. I've worked on it for 3 months, I think. Not all the time though, just whenever I've had the chance to work on it a little.

This is quite probably my most difficult piece to play to date, but I did my best. The arrangement is a bit all over the place, but I kinda love that. This composition is fun to play, and hopefully fun to listen to!

Recording and uploading this piece seems to be my way to celebrate the new year. So It's only fitting that I dedicate it to the year that passed and the year to come. Speaking of which, Happy New Year!

If you want to see my performance, check it out on youtube:


I chose to use the sound from my Clavinova piano, but if you'd prefer a VST, you can listen to an alternative version on Instaudio:


Thank you for listening! :3

Thank you :)!

Jaw dropping work. This is so awesome.:O

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thanks for dropping by, I'm really glad you think so :DDD

I don't know how I can describe a piano instrumental as "action packed", but I sure can for this track. I can't believe I recognized the sound of the clavinova. I have a really old electronic one in my house, and this song kinda brought be back to the days of jamming out on it as a kid (although I was never this good). Fantastic work as always! A great listen :)

Why hello there :D
In response to your response to my review, I've been chilling this past week, because the end of 2017 was... "action packed" for me ;)
But now I'm hoping to be as active as ever, and I aim to make all kinds of stuff!

Haha, since buying some piano VSTs, I haven't been using the audio from the Clavinova much, even though it has a nice sound in its own way. The reason I used it here, is because it's difficult to get a good sound for fast solo piano pieces, with the current piano VSTs.

I find that jamming on a "real" instrument is always tons of fun. I got a Ukulele for Xmas, so once I've learned to play it a bit, I might use it for a recording or two ^____^

Thanks for checking this piece out! It's a bit all over the place, but I'm glad you could appreciate that!
