Description
I've uploaded a new version of it with better sound quality: Park Sonata (Digital)
I will keep this for historic purposes :)
--
This is my first composition - May/09. Out of a night where I could not sleep, recalling a walk in Central Park the music started to flow.
It made me into composing and I hope it will be a long and great journey!

Thank you for listening and please share your thoughts.

Will record again later through MIDI (this was a simple headphone/line-in recording).

I think this would make a good collab
can hear all kinds of voicing in my mind. I bet you do too. strings, sax, flute... I like how the mood changes at 2:00 and there are actually dynamics! A rare happening in this rock and roll world!

i do
it's weird but I hear a couple of additional instruments already lol - started working on an orchestra version of it - but only a beginner in GB and I prefer to record each instrument instead of writing it up... so it will be a couple of extra weeks :)
thanks for your comment!

Late,
when the whole world is sleeping
I walk within my world of dreams
I melt into the thoughts you're keeping
Of our love under the moon's beams

Heard it and here's a poem for you out of appreciation. Thanks. Keep it up!

I think you'll find that folks genuine interest and caring in this community is worth a lot more than money. Afterall, when we give of our music freely. It makes it extra special when we get something in return.

what is that word...
when something is simple, strong, and beautiful... I think the word is "elegant" :-) This seems to bubble with the beginnings of greatness.

Very nice first entry on Macjams, and also a wonderful step if this is your first "composition"... I really like it! And I assume you are playing piano "live" here? I have a feeling we have a lot of wonderful music to come from you. I like the way this weaves between major and minor at just the right times, plus a couple of delightfully unexpected times.

Thank you for sharing this gem with us! I look forward to more, as you work on them.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Elegant comment
of yours.
Thank you for stopping by Eduard!
It's my 'debut' in composing. I'm glad you enjoyed.
It was played live - actually more like 'in the dark' because of the recording method I've used: from headphone output into mic line. In order not to distort the recording (Audacity) I had to turn the volume down pretty much to zero - so I had a few takes until one that was satisfying enough after playing in silence :) Karen got a misplayed key...sharp musicians in here ! (tks Karen! :))

Now that I got a MIDI cable have to redo it - and add the great tips I've been receiving.

Please feel free to add any suggestion/tips/changes you'd see fit in the composition. I'm still starting on this :)

Never thought of making music. Until I started this year - triggered by one night of insomnia. It hasn't been 6 months yet so I have LOTS to learn - and this community is a great finding. My "wishlist": - improve my composing - improve the reco... [see more]
