Here a little pianistic work. Curious to know what you think about...

Hi Yoshed,

I think this is a nice song to listen to, kind of epic, in particular when having the enigmatic title in mind. I appreciate the communication between left and right voices in the end of the piece forming a contrast to the first half where the left voice is merely supporting the melody but still in a beautiful way.

Nice tune.

Kjell

Hi Yoshed,

Great tune! Very uplifting :). I can see this being supported well by an orchestra too if more 'epic-ness' is intended!

You're right, there's a little contrast : melody vs harmony ;) Thans a lot !!

As people have said, it's pleasant to listen to.  One thing you could try playing around with: you have these melodies in the right hand and sometimes you have two lines playing off of each other.  Could be interesting to see what you could get up with more diatonic and chromatic voice-leading in the bass (i.e. moving by step) and playing around with different inversions of chords more.  There's also a very particular texture you seem to be gravitating toward with this, and it creates that large atmospheric effect you seem to be looking to achieve (and are achieving).  However, you could also try working with some different kinds of textures and seeing where that takes you.  Just a couple of thoughts– hope this is helpful!

Thank you Lara for this comment. I know what you mean. A very interesting way to which I never think. I like to use clusters and play with harmonies, but, it's true, i don't play the left hand in a diatonic and chromatic movement way. Thanks again !!
