The other day, I challenged myself to write a "Love theme," something I hadn't really attempted to do before. So I sat down and this was the product. I would love some feedback on what you guys think! I'd love to hear some other interpretations as well if anyone has any. Challenging myself with these prompts has helped me to grow my skills and make things that are different than what I usually produce, and it's been a lot of fun to do so far. Hope you enjoy.

  • Hi Layne. This is a lovely piece, and it's kinda sad for a love theme. Maybe there's a bit of sad element in the story, but it suits well. I believe you can play the volume/articulation for the cello, when to fade in, when to fade out, to give it more alive. Here it sound's kinda flat in terms of the volume all araound, but the melody for its accompaniment is good. Overall, nice piece!


    • Thank you so much for the feedback! I agree that I could have livened up the cello bits a bit more, both to add some realism and as you said, keep them fro being too flat. That is something that I have been trying hard to figure out and get better at, especially with these being VSTs. Glad you enjoyed listening!

  • Very calming! Would love to hear more development! Well done! Loving the sound of the piano! Is it a digital recording? Or live?

    • Thank you so much! I am glad you enjoyed it! The piano is a VST. It's Spitfire Audio's LABS Soft Piano. It's free too!

  • HI Layne,

    I am truly enjoying the intro, and being captivated by the piano playing.

    Lovely melody, and soothing beat, truly lovely music.

    You are definitely a skilled musical composer, and more importantly, lovely instrument playing.




    • Thank you so very much! I greatly appreciate the kind words! Glad you enjoyed the song.

  • Hi Layne,

    simply pretty.

    You have put a lot on timbre but less on melody.

    Thank you for sharing.  It made my day.


    • I am so glad you enjoyed listening to it. Thank you for your feedback and kind words!
