in certain moods
and at certain times i play so softly that my computer barely registers the midi signal. this was one of those times, where I was just so into the music that I was barely touching the keys. lol...i had to triple the track and boost the master volume just to get it audible. thanks DL.

like the reflection on the water I'd say you captured it nicely :-)
love the free form feel. Just the right amount of mystery with your tasteful chord changes

chord changes
i tried a key i NEVER write in. Gb it was an interesting experiment once I finally remembered that I mostly had to use the black keys. lol...i'm glad you liked this, thank you.

Pianos that leave a sustain...
Ever so slightly muffled, but maybe that is not a bad thing here... slow and deliberate, gentle and thoughtful, the notes ring gently across time... very tasty, as usual!

kassia said 2428 days ago (August 5th, 2010)
muffled
interesting. that is a common comment on my pieces and I just don't hear the muffled-ness. it's the JP steinway without any tweaking what-so-ever. i was surprised at how natural it sounded - but I stayed in a pretty safe range of notes as well. anyway, thank you as always dragon.

Shay you are just getting better and better. Starts out like a George Winston type of piece, but goes more in your own direction. I really like the long sustained, dissonant notes - really gives this piece emotion. Lovely playing; nicely written - WELL DONE!

truly soothing...
like serene thoughts drifting weightlessly. you create a wonderful, saturated and soothing atmosphere here, much like the photo you chose. always like it when the piano is played with a light touch, without indulging in exaggerated emotion. listened to this a few times...very enjoyable.

kassia said 2428 days ago (August 5th, 2010)
light touch
sometimes my touch can get too light and i forget that other people would like to actually "hear" what I'm playing. i had the thought to put some strings underneath the piano, but this really feels full enough by itself. thanks for your wonderful words pari.

Hi Shay......
Your soul shines through, here in this delightful piece of resonant beauty. Rest easy.

Sunset is the most beautiful time of day, to me. You've captured the magical essence perfectly.

Take care.

Magical - full of space
I am having a little laugh. I just finished commenting on your "Tempest" having meant to hop on over to your page and listen to some of your tracks for some time. Then I discover immediately after posting my comment on your page that you have been doing the same. I love synchronicity. I also love the space and rest you create in Sunset. I noted your comment about doing this in Gb. Sometimes using a key we are less familiar with can create an opening for something new. We have to slow down and listen and think differently than when we are in our comfort zones.

Awwwww, it ended!
Just when I was about to bliss out, no more notes. What up with that? C'mon, lady: put those other 4 minutes back. What? No can do? Oh well; I guess it's the repeat button again.
Thank you, Shay, for this delightful, relaxing piece, perfect to end a hectic day. (Actually, it's awfully nice in the middle of the day, or even in the morning ;-) Cheers.

Vic Holman said 2426 days ago (August 7th, 2010)
taking time
what i really like here, is all the space between notes, there's always something about the overtones of a fading note that gets overlooked. but you did a great job on bringing them to life.

Wonderful
I often get to film sunsets in my line of work - sometimes in time lapse. Last night was one of those nights - out here in Nevada. This will go on the iPod to keep me company while my camera clicks away those frames. I love the light touch and deep contemplation. Simply beautiful.

I like it...
...when people have the run of 88 keys and all sorts of possible sounds and timbres and they have the courage to be simple...

Every note here sounds chosen and sculpted... but also as if each note developed organically from the last...

this reflection
what piano are you using ? - it has this sweet
sustain - you have really brought out its richness - in my humble opinion - showing its
variation when notes are struck harder -
oh what a nice sunset - there are lyrics - indeniable words etched - normandy's erik satie
is brought to mind - victorian beauty

G-flat...
is actually my FAVORITE key. You just have to remember the Cb, Shay. Such a mellow improv you have done here. Very very peaceful, thoughtful. I agree with a few comments about the muffled quality of the piano. However, for this particular number, I think it works very well. If anything, I'd suggest just a touch of reverb to help it shimmer a little. ... My only real complaint about this piece is that it is awfully short. I could use another two minutes of solitude. Are you writing these down? You should.
