I composed this piece in a week for Bosa's Winter Olympics Competition. I had a blast writing it too! I played this on my electronic piano, but I cleaned up all the errors to make the piece as good as possible.

The Winter Olympics are held in PyeongChang this year. I composed this piece, keeping in mind the atmosphere I imagine people there will feel. Let me know if you like it!

Thank you for listening :)

You can watch me try to play this piece, if you'd like:

pretty nice its have been a while i didnt come to newground but first thing i did it was going on your page and see if you have continue making music and the first i listen is this one and its really good i love the fact when you stop for a second then restart intensely and for winter theme it really matching that and for fun i did watch your video you send and we can feel the vibe you are trying to send us :D when you are playing. even if you said it was not perfect it was still amazing seeing you play, anyway good job and keeping doing great music that you like.

Hey there, and welcome back to NG! And thank you, also for checking my music out so soon after returning. I'm still composing indeed :D
I'm glad you liked the video too.
Thanks for the nice words :)

Smooth, pretty, and floaty content at the beginning. I really like the part at :38 - feels like a refrain, yet it's still so light and upbeat. I really appreciate the more subdued part at 2:10, and then the major breakdown at 2:23 as well. Piece needed some structural relief by that point, so I'm glad it got some. :) Ascending line into 3:05 was a nice touch too in leading back to the more energetic section at 3:13. The harmonic shift at 4:12 could've been smoother, but I did like the dramatic pause before it. Beautiful piece overall, Ale. You really thread the rhythm and contour of the floaty pattern at the beginning through the whole piece. Keep up the great work!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

0:38 is certainly a refrain of sorts, as it keeps reappearing here and there throughout the piece, in various ways :D
2:10 and 2:23 definitely happened quite naturally. For once, it's nice with a break from the intense playing, but it also feels like it makes sense musically.

3:13 is definitely the climax of the piece, despite coming quite early.

I guess I think of 4:04 kind of like a balloon that has been filled with air throughout the piece, and gets so big that everything kinda bursts out with one blow there, causing the composition afterwards to move towards a more relaxed tone, and an ending that brings the listener back to the feel at the start, but with a sense of conclusion :)

Thanks for the review!

I love it. Reminds me of many of the songs from the 君の名は (2016) film OST by RADWIMPS.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Awesome! I'm glad you like it :DDD
I thought that movie was really good, I saw it about a year ago :)

Honestly, this made me cry, this is so beautiful.. Thanks for sharing this into this world <3

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you for listening! If my composition was able to relay some emotions, I suppose it has justified its existence :3

I havn't heard a piano piece this beautiful in a long time. I never want to turn it off
I just want it to loop forever.

Mad respect.

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Oh wow, thanks for the massive compliment! It means a lot, especially coming from you.
I'm glad my effort paid off, as I worked quite hard to make the piece ^_____^
