Hey guys


Am pretty new to the forum but have been playing piano for quite a few years. This is my first full composition that I finished a couple of years back but only uploaded last summer. You can take a listen at:

Take Me Away (Youtube)

I didn't really have a style or structure in mind when I started, it just kinda came together in my head and from messing around.

Anyway let me know what you think below!

Thanks

It flows well, and has a nice contrasting middle section, but overall it's pretty generic and boring to my taste. You don't listen to classical music assume?

I agree with Joel on this one. I found myself wishing Black Gloss had used a different photo of the same woman coming out of the water as inspiration for this piece. Okay, I'm being a bit harsh I like the middle section more, ARGH you're back to the diddling of the first section. Fortunately, that part was pretty short. I did like the middle section take that and make that its own piece.
