Solemn Duty

Get Flash to see this player.

So, I rarely do this... post a piece of music so quickly after making it. Being realistic though I don't see myself going back to it.

I made this in few hours of spare time; something I rarely can enjoy. :P Sat down with the piano melody in my head, and this is what came of it. I also decided on the title of the piece before I finished it. A first! Determining the specific emotion/idea prior, definitely helped me stay focused more.

Hope it's enjoyed! I'm usually somewhat of a perfectionist, and this might benefit from a few tweaks here and there, but I decided to save this piece from the overflowing 'unfinished works' folder on my computer.

Dramatic and heartbreaking! Great cascading piano theme. I like the attack of the synth bass. What's unfinished?

Re: alackbass
Thanks! Glad you liked the piano theme; I was a little worried it might be too repetitive since I didn't change it up at all. I like the synth bass as well. :) More and more I'm putting in some sort of synth into my orchestral works.

You're right, it is technically finished. I just feel like it might benefit from some more expression and better mixing, but those are things that I haven't really mastered yet.

I'm a film guy, and I'm currently working in post production. I love music too though. So I'm going to keep working at it. Piano is my instrument.... [see more]
