Great job!
YOU'RE A COMPOSING MACHINE!!!

Wow! This is unlike anything of yours I've ever heard; I think the only common denominator is the ostinato figure you have going through this (the slow, languid chord progression you have in the left hand); I think some of your compositions have ostinati (?).

It definitely brings the Gershwin 3 Preludes to mind, but you've taken it in its own, wonderful direction. This is just fantastic! Wonderful work, very moody, very pretty.

Great job!

I love Ostinato...
and use it quite often in my work. I've always been drawn to it whenever I heard it used in classical or rock. It’s a bit of a crutch sometimes have stop myself from using it because it's so natural to me. I'm by no means a pianist but I enjoy playing the keyboard and this gentle piece was a pleasant surprise from that play.
As always thanks for listening and for the kind words Clark,

Haunting, restrained, tightly shaped

unusual but lovely
Quite relaxing. Did you tweak the piano instrument?

Piano tweeking
Yes I did. It's from the GB symphony jam pack but like virtually every instrument in it I modify it to my own liking and usually have several types of the ones I use.
I notice your piano has a very full bodied sound. Is it the Yamaha or Logic's synths?
Also I didn't mention your playing in my review of California Surf. As usual it's remarkable. I took brief lessons as a young boy and regret not continuing. But I'm determined to improve.
Best,
Bowman
