[NB] Under the Moon (Piano) [NB] Under the Moon (Piano)

Rated 4 / 5 stars

For being mostly improv keeping the feeling moving is very well done! Actually recording a piece also allows one to toy with shifting the tempo so much more easily than using a program, and you did a good job accentuating notes as well. A personal nitpick for probably just me is the range of volume between notes, some notes feel a little too soft during the sped up portion and get drowned out, and an itty bit too much hang time on the last note keeps the piece from looping seamlessly.

Overall, a very good composition, especially for being recorded.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

A very well crafted piece, the attention to the infliction of the piano and the attack of the strings with the pizzicato strings all attribute to the title and the feeling of choosing one path of many, and loops rather nicely to boot. The only nitpick I can surmise from listening to the loop while writing is that maybe the strings with the attack could be bumped up slightly to give all three instruments a balance, though as they are they attribute to keeping a full sound present, so it's a matter of preference.

Very well made all around and loops almost seamlessly.

The pizzicato instruments definitely give the feeling of walking on pins and needles so to say, and while the chords are rather simplistic the feeling of suspense is there slightly. On the other hand, the turned up high notes, while they help keep the prickling tension around, breaks up the balance of the audio. As a suggestion keep the high notes standing out, but toned down by a bit as to keep the volume range within a little more even threshold.

Overall I can listen to it loop over and over so the nitpicks I pointed out are just my opinions, and it's a pretty decent composition.
