Does anyone recognise this peice
on: May 04, 2004, 12:21:55 AM
Around 6 years ago I came across a website that had an absolutely beautiful background midi.  I managed to download it and I have loved listening to it ever since.  I am now working on a small independant film idea in which the song would fit perfectly to.  Unfortunately the midi was only called piano.mid and I have no way I figuring out what it is called so I can actually use it.  If any of you have the time and the know how, please give me some suggestions or ideas on how I can figure it out or if you actually do know what its called please tell me.  I uploaded the midi on a website I just made at angelfire.  Here is the URL.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

It worked for me; it downloaded to my Winamp player. Sorry but I have no idea what the piece is.

Hmm, It worked for me.  It could be because Im using Opera Web browser (Which I recommend to everyone https://www.opera.com/ ) But you can try to right click that link and press save target as.  That might work.  Or go here :: https://www.angelfire.com/indie/piano0 :: And listen to it as a background music.  Sorry for the trouble ^.~

Thanks for the new link.

I listened to it. You are right, it is very nice, atmospheric and evocative.

Unfortunately, I do no know it.

However, I can tell you it is not a classical piece. I would guess it is either New Age, or the soundtrack for a movie.

In fact it reminded me strongly of the music of Joe Hisaishi, who composed all the soundtracks for Hayao Myiasaki's Japanese cartoons (His last one - "Spirited away" got an Oscar for best animation).

Sorry I could not help.

Best wishes,
Bernhard.

Actually that was quite a bit of help.  I still don't know the title but Ill get some of  Joe Hisaishi's music when I can.  I found it amasing that it sounds similar to the music played in Myiasaki's films.  I am a huge Japanese Animation fan and I am currently taking japanese classes at college.  That little fact made me quite happy.

Yes, I love Japanese animation too. I saw "Akira" some ten years ago and still have haunting memories of it.

Have you seen "Spirited away"? I have the DVD and it is some kind of special edition that came with two DVDs, the second one has a documentary on how the mocie was made, and there is a lot about the (very nice) soundtrack.

Best wishes,
Bernhard.

Yeah. I've seen Spirited away.  twice in theatres...  Twice in a row.  (The second time was mainly because I saw a girl I liked buy a ticket...  And the show before that I nearly died getting too. I was droppped off at the wrong theatre and had to run 3 miles to the theatre playing it with in 15 minutes...  I ended up catching the car that had dropped me off... only about half a mile away.)  In fact, I was almost able to watch Spirited away before it came to theatres in the US...  My friends Japanese tutor gave him a DVD copy of it but it required a japanese DVD player.

Personally I enjoy Princess Mononoke and Kiki's Delivery service (Both Myiasaki films) a bit more.  But all of them are absolutely Fantastic films.

Yes, they are great. And another amazing Myiasaki cartoon is "Castle in the Sky" (the one about the floating island of Laputta). All of those have scores by Hisaishi. Don't they remind you of the piece you are looking for?

Bernhard.
