I listened to the first version, but somehow the cleaner version just seems so much more enjoyable. It took a bit for me to get into it but it really is beautifully performed. It's somehow kind of nostalgic yet inspiring at the same time; a look into both the past and the steps that must be taken towards the future. Very creative title, also. Despite how simple this is and perhaps how outdated, it's actually one of my favorite piano tracks on NG. It's lovely listening to this.
It's also nice to know that your older pieces can still impress me. Great job.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
