i guess the real failure is i wish i had a real piano, instead of these glitchy sample based instruments. :/

AAAAAAAAAAH so cool to listen to man...

I bet it would sound even more awsome played on a real piano!

Awesome tune..

Would you be willing to give out the sheet music file (or logic/sibelius file)?

Thanks :)

Hey~ This track is my most favorite one.

This track just crushes me. I put it on my iPod and wander the woods on my lunch break. It turns an hour away from the desk into...I dunno. Something entirely different.

I heard it in the game "Darwinia" and then found it here.

Very good job.

Best song ever. :'[

I really love this one. I too know it from the Darwinia game. Opposing to the previous posts I'd say that using a real piano would take a bit of it's charm away. :-)
Thank you for this great song and your part of the Darwinia soundtrack! I really enjoyed it much.

I liked this one so much i remade it in reason 4 because the one in the game was kinda clippy, but dont worry, i never let the rns off my hdd! And i just put myself one your mailing list, so make some songs, NOW! lol

Is there any way to get hold of a non-clippy version? Love this tune so much.

I love this track. Also, it's awesome on AudioSurf. :-)

I really loves it. Wonderful song boy. Like Simon, i will play on Audiosurf. The first time i heard this song on Darwinia, i had the need to find and play 100 times. Great work :)

Such a beautiful, melancholy piece. I'm normally not picky about audio quality, but count me among those who would LOVE if it it were recorded on a piano or if a sheet music release took place (So I could get a friend to record it. XD )

Just discovering your music and I can't stop playing this piece in particular.

What spilth said. More piano please!

The glitchy sample based instruments give it character! I miss the Tresk stuff :(

I love this piece, and was kinda bored tonight, so I transcribed it into sheet music:'s_Failure.pdf

Let me know ([email protected]) if you see anything that needs corrected!

This is an awesome song! I took Andrew Bell's sheet music and made a cover of it, see here: . Sadly it's not on a real piano but on a keyboard... I have to find some nice grand piano somewhere I can use and record it there =).
