Prelude for Solo Piano: 'Impression of a Portrait' - op.38

Uploaded on Mar 18, 2019

This kind of experimental music is something I have wanted to compose for a while. It's hard to listen and comprehend this type of music, which borrows from post impressionisim as the whole piece becomes a type of abstract concept which loses orthodox structure. Therefore, I don't think it would be as popular as my other pieces.

Inspiration of this one comes from a nightmare: in the dream, I was drifting alone in an ocean and whenever I would look up at the night sky, the constellations would form a haunting face of a young woman which stared down at me. certainly lonely, slightly unpleasant and enigmatic... For those who believe dreams bear meaning to real life, then, perhaps, I am having problems with being lonely or abondoned by women in my life? lol

The right hand perpetual motion is meant to symbolise the cold ocean and it's infinite waves. While, the left hand ''paints'' the woman's features.

The painting is by renowned painter Renoir - Pensive/La songeuse

Impressionism post-impressionist almost atonal music utilizing weird polyrhythms inspired by a dream classical music piano
