This was the second of a few pieces I wrote on 9 April, the 9th day of the Spring run of 21 Days of VGM this year; the prompt was the same as the title, "Space Cowboy." I finally got round to uploading it today.


I had quite a bit of angst on that day, as a certain other piece written on that day suggests (see below). I'd also played enough Shadow Hearts II to imagine an angsty space cowboy's musical theme, enough to see where this was going.

Fantastic! Wish it was longer.

I like the feel to this, great work!

Now that is moody.

Piano could be a bit softer, I think it's too heavy in contrast to your support. Keep the bass notes heavy, soften the high notes.

love it.

This piece really nails the idea of an astronaut cowboy floating in space; a vast, untamed backdrop of dark wilderness with only stars and the nearest sun to light the way. It's so vast and lonely it's almost claustrophobic. It makes me think. I wonder what he's wrangling?

My only gripe is the sudden cut-off at the end. I think there should be some extra space at the end to let the instruments fully fade out.

Other than that, I think you did a fantastic job with the immersion.
