Nocturne no.1 - OLD unedited live performance Composition & Improv (Link to Final version included) by Fredrik Park published on 2011/08/22 02:09:36 +0000 [This is the OLD initial live performance version! Here's the LINK TO THE OFFICIAL RELEASE for this composition:] https://soundcloud.com/fredrik-park/fredrik-park-nocturne-1-the-longing-and-the-wonders (original track upload description:) This piano piece is an old composition of mine, that I tried to dust off. Regretly, I didn't remember all technical sections, and also another theme that I originaly was including is also missing here.Sorry for all the mistakes. I use my MIDI keyboard, and it doesn't have a very natural feel.Very difficult to play like this on it, but I would have to practise this more even on a grand piano.Early parts of the improvisation will be used for this composition.Video clip contains some more info. It's not as symbolism-heavy as my previous tracks. I focused more on trying to finding enjoyable melodies and harmonies with piano techniques from the classical eras. Also, I didn't want it to sound very similar to any other tune, so that's why I kick myself for unknowingly using a specific melody in the improvisation section. It just popped up in my semi-subconcious mind, and I went with it by then. The composition itself doesn't use any sudden influence of specific tunes, but is instead created through lots of painstakingly trials and errors with technical ideas and chord changes.
