This is my composition for the first round of the NGADM, 2018.

If you want to see me play this on the piano (I wish I could play the violin too), here's a video for you:


Thank you for listening :)

Breath of fresh air! Brooding, contemplative and warm, I can listen to this over and over.

Wow this is lovely. Subtle and melancholic, the intro which chills you followed by the warmer piano and deeper violin. That was a stunning transition and you prepped the listener well. A very well written piece that had enough variation, rhythms, melodies and masterful playing to keep the listener engaged throughout. I really got into this one. Occasionally the violin is drowned out, especially in the louder sections where it plays lower notes but this is so minor I won't drop a point for it.

I can't fault this piece anywhere really. Congratulations!

Comp/Prod/Enjoyment 10/10.

Thank you for the review, as well as for the high score! It's nice to see that you along with others enjoyed my piece. I was a bit worried that the style wouldn't be fully appreciated.

I admit to having some difficulties balancing the piano and the violin, especially since both are so dynamic (and play across many registers). At the same time, I don't think perfecting that is the most important part of the piece, since the melody, progression and emotions are in focus. I definitely want to get better at these kinds of things in the future though!

Good luck judging the next round, and thanks for keeping the competition alive ^___^

Solid work LSD. Congrats on getting the highest score this round! Your production quality and musicianship has gone up significantly since the last time I've been around NG. You will be a force in this competition for sure!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you! It means a fair deal coming from you :)
I'm glad that my progress is noticable, since I've kept on doing my best to improve in the musical field, alongside my studies. Who knows, perhaps we (along with someone else) will end up in the finals together. Best of luck to you and Josh!

Ayyy gg on getting into 2nd ngadm round

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Thank you! Your track is really good, and would've deserved to make it too, as suggested by your high score. Hopefully there will be an opportunity again next year :)

Congratulations on the super high score!

LucidShadowDreamer responds:

Why thank you, and congratulations to you as well!
