    -Forgotten Land- June-Bug-Dan

    Hi all,
    This piece is called 'Forgotten Land' and i written for piano. (GPO Steinway)
    This piece is fairly short but if you think and imagine yourself in a confusing land where no one has been to in thousands of years youll see the inspiration.

    As usual all comments are welcome because i would love to hear what you think.

    Regards,
    Dan.

    Hi Dan,

    This is a very, very pretty, serene, and evocative work. Short, yes, but it conveys the message quite well. The only thing I would suggest is maybe a little more fullness to the mix (probably just my aging ears!) and a bit more length on the final note.

    Those are "minor" things though; this is a lovely, well-done piece!

    This is a mood setting piece for sure. Short and sweet and to the point. I enjoyed its simplicity and its calming effect.

    What is the picture of?

    well done

    Dan,

    Short in duration does not mean short in content. This is a really fine work and the production is no less so. It certainly invokes thoughts along the line of the title. Thanks for sharing it here.

    Serenity seasoned with tension; a well done and
    enjoyable listen, JBD.

    But! Come now, take this forward, develop it and
    bring us more!

    I was just becoming thoroughly engrossed with
    where you were headed, and --

    My best,

    Beautifully composed; very emotion-provoking. Though, I felt it ended abruptly...

    Hi Ronj,

    Thanks for listening!
    The picture is not of anything in particular but i thought it would help.
    I'm glad you found it calming! What is a musician if they cant create a mood.

    Hi David,

    Good to hear from you.
    I was thinking if all went well here in the listening room i might orchestrate around this piano solo, Hopefully it will turn out just as good!
