This song is not in a battle

I've been working on this piano song for a few months now, on and off. It's has a few takes, so it's a bit fragmented, and my recording equipment may sound a bit hissy (it's my laptop microphone, so the fan is audible).

Do you guys have any ideas for how it could end? Or perhaps other ideas. Kinda got stuck.

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

Love the feel on this piece.Sort of longing at times.Yeah I know what you mean about fragments,as soon I get hooked on the melody it snaps to next(LOL).Would love to hear a clear ,clean and complete version of this.Maybe with out the delay to get a more organic feel to it could also work. Anyway great job.

Special thx for all you're doing for us!!!!!

Did you add delay intentionally? in 1:38 it messes the song too much. You should try re-recording it without stopping and starting again. Just straight to the end. If you can record it in midi i can mix it with some samples if you want.

Oo, I like.  Sounds very classical, in a way, but modern at the same time. 

Hey, one of my personal favorite transition ideas is to get quieter, or simplify to just a one-handed melody so that it can build into an easy keychange (or position on the piano, as your third section does-- it goes into that higher part that JorgeBoscan commented on).  Maybe some tempo lag would be good too, and then break back into the next section, recovering the full tempo.  The song that I most recently uploaded, [The End of Tribulation], was originally about 3 songs, but as time went on, I merged them together and tried to work on some transitions.  I didn't want to sacrifice the key signature or rhythm of any of the sections/movements, so I had to find ways to make it all fit together without losing the feeling and emotion that I had created the song with.  I think you probably share a similar ideal for this song!

I think it ought to end with a rolling up and down thing, wacking some nice high chords before falling back down to some low ones.  I think the final chord ought to be quieter, and an up-beat, leaving that little questionmark of sorts into the air.

aside from that, I really like this song-- it's very full sounding.  The delay is nice, though a little strong in that 3rd section, at the 1:38 mark.  Amazing melodies though.  I'm glad to hear stuff from you again, mud!  I'm happy that I've stuck around this long!  I plan on being here much longer, too

I agree with TLS
"Sounds very classical, in a way, but modern at the same time"
