This is lovely Mike
Very introspective playing with gorgeous tones. It's not really melancholy, but close. A gentle listen and reverie-inducing. Cool.

Dirty mind
That pic looked a bit phallic to me.
Peaceful composition, but I think it sounds a touch "stiff," A bit mechanical for the flow. Maybe too quantized? Other than that, I like the mood the melody gives.

Increase/decrease
That is certainly subtle.

I'm not sure I get this piece. Algorithmic composition or so?

Thanks!
It is somewhere between composing/sequencing and algorithmic :) From the comments, might come up short on the Turing test though!

Expressive piece. I think It could be interesting to add something over the top (or underneath) at around the 2 min mark, and perhaps again at the 3 minute mark? Good bed for a more developed piece.

Free form and minimalist. I think I get where you are going with this one and I like the basic feel and ideas. If you were to want to play with this some more, it may be cool to maybe stretch it out - more space between some of the fast phrases - and then underlay it with either soft evolving pads or perhaps a countermelody in a different tone to interweave with the piano. I like it.

Quietly reflective. Tempo change is very subtle, as noted. A shallow parabola :-) I quite liked it, though. Thanks.

Frame of mind...
If one is looking for a tune and pretty harmony, this is not the place to find it. But if one is open to the possibilities of exploring sound and counterpoint that is a bit off the beaten path, this track fills the bill beautifully. I really like the careful selection of you counterpoint. I know this is probably improvised, but your sense of what works to create a unique and evocative composition is quite refined. I agree with Sammy about the mechanical sound or delivery, but considering how you produced this, it's still pretty darned good. Glad I heard this this morning.
