I wrote this a couple of months ago with BeatMaker 1.2, but couldn't get it off my phone because the .wav file was too big. Thank you Intua for fixing that bug with 1.3.

The piano parts were done by pitch shifting a single sample onto multiple pads. For the piano solo section, I created a separate kit with nothing but piano (16 pitches), programmed the solo, exported it as a .wav, and then imported it onto a pad in the kit for the main piece. Quite a lot of work. Writing music in this way is an exercise in doing more with less and overcoming limitations, and will be a thing of the past with the new pitch sequencing capability in 1.3.

The piece unfolds and builds slowly. There is a few seconds of silence between the two parts (break is at around 3 minutes). I hope some of you enjoy this, and comments are welcome. If you like this, please check out my other pieces on this board.
