As usual I'm not fully satisfied with the interpretation, feel free to ask for the sheet music or make arrangements to it.

I hope this one makes sense lol Enjoy.

Hey man, listened to the piece. The orchestration is excellent. I also like the piano sound, very nice on the ear, a rich tone.

If you look at the top layer, the main melody so to say, it's mostly executed by using chords. I would like to see a variation of it where you don't do the harp-like chords over the top but keep it more singular. Less is more in a sense. It's beautiful but by not utilizing it too much you keep it interesting.

For the rest I don't have much to add. It's all logical and the feel is nicely portrayed.

Hi Benyamind, thank you man!

The piano is an electric Kawai CN37, the sound supposedly is the Shigeru Kawai, with almost default settings. I increased the mechanic sound of the dampers leaving the keys, for a louder "whooosh" I love that lol I recorded directly on the piano as mp3.

You know I had written a part where the melody was single notes (as a repeat of "A"), but I did not include that in the end. I agree with you, it would be interesting to make a version like this or at least in a repeat.

I'm glad you liked it, and that this makes sense to someone else.

Yeah I think if the occurrence of the chord-leading over the top was a bit less, it would give a certain balance to the whole thing.

Yeah it makes sense man, I feel like the places you take the listener are unexpected, but in a good way. I wouldn't doubt it. In my opinion something becomes logical if the 'right' resolutions happen when needed. I feel like you do that. Even though the piece might seem complicated, utilizing the right resolutions gives a sense of structure.

Well it's a good piano for sure. Normally I find pianos to have a too dominant mid frequency, I always mess around with it when I'm mixing. But this sound is crisp, rich and not edgy. Definitely a good one.

Edit: I'm limited to a simple midi-keyboard; would you be interested in executing a relatively simple piece I wrote, with this piano? I'm making an orchestral album and I'm just trying to expand my options. Feel free to think about it.

Beautiful !! I really enjoyed the journey. I am on the 3rd repeat because I like the story that this piece created in my imagination.

Hey! I hadn't seen this, probably the edit? Sure I am interested, send me what you got and I'll do my best.

Wow! Thank you Elysia. So I'm glad I wrote it, I wasn't going to, like many others. The first thought that came to me when I accidentally played the first three notes "too simple, not worth continuing". These are thoughts that come from society, from what would others think, from fears, from places we should not pay attention to. Our deepest self wouldn't say bad things about itself, why would we torture ourselves, it makes no sense.

Curious about your stories. And also if you have some other stories which were not turned into music yet...

I am glad that your piece got past the first three notes! I think that it is really difficult to complete a work, let alone have other people listen to it. Composition can be quite personal on a few levels because we are opening feelings and talent to others, I think that this is where a lot of fear comes from. Do you share your compositions a lot?
As for my stories, I have quite a few. I suffer from OIS (overactive imagination syndrome). I don't write anything down wether it be a story or a melody but I am working on that problem.

I agree, at least for me composing does not come super easily. Sometimes ideas are there but it's hard to get them out, and mostly they are just not there so I don't worry about that now, and I write when stuff flows and I feel I must write. I think there's already so much beautiful music, no need to go crazy I'm not adding to that lol

I share them now just here and then with a few friends I care about, and of course first of all the person I wrote it for, my beloved wife. First few times some years ago it was super weird sharing them, but as I got better and better feedback I'm usually eager to share most stuff.

I would use that "syndrome", definitely, I would call it "talent" haha Sometimes I suffer from the opposite, and that's quite boring, it's peaceful yeah, but my mind feels like living in a small town in the middle of nowhere, you know all people, you know all cars, you know all trees lol If you don't mind send me some of your imaginations, and if they inspire me music I'll write it, and this way we turn that "suffering" into a "talent".
