Pianolina

A soothing sound toy with which to bathe the aural senses, Pianolina is a beautifully designed and gorgeously sounding Flash application created to introduce you to the sounds of the Grotrian piano. Choose between several different compositions and see how the notes react to gravity as they bounce around the display.

I love the simplicity of the game. Especially the composition

I really like the E. Satie composition.

Why not institute a tag for 'appeared in a previous Link Dump'?

agreed, the e. satie composition is nice.

I actually played this a few months ago... weirdly enough, today I was thinking of the Satie composition and the pianolina thing, and I look at jayisgames and there it is.

that E. Satie's comp. sounds like that theme from a game series on Newgrounds with this court hearing and you decide what to say. About this game, I can't seem to make my own music no matter what random tones I throw in.

Anyone know the name of the Satie piece?

I'm almost positive that the Satie piece is one of the Three Gnossiennes compositions (it's a bit confusing - he made 3 or 4 songs in the Gnossiennes series).

Thanks for the Pianolina link, Jay (and to Angst for the recommendation)! Unfortunately, I'm not very musical and couldn't really make anything that sounded good. It was fun though! :D

Yeah, the Satie comp. is featured in ZapDramatic's ambition series.

Thanks Megan, it's number one - I found a MP3 here

it's played on guitar, I wonder if there's a piano version out there too - it'd be more haunting to my ear.

Haha, I thought that screenshot looked familiar. Glad you guys liked it!

I've uploaded a piano version of the Satie piece "Gnossiennes N.1" to sendspace. It's a track from the Essential Classics Piano Works CD for the curious.

Thanks for that, here's another version - it's a bit slower and with more reverb.

reminds me of an interactive version of the siggraph piece "pipe dreams"

Interesting. I too like the Satie selection.

Satie is one of my favorite composers. He was one of the fore-fathers of minimal and ambient music. I love this sound-toy... coming up with all kinds of neat stuff. Thanks!

what is the password

This is so AWESOME!!!!!

Is there a way to more precisely set down tones? I find this 'game' quite interesting but not particularly captivating because of the difficulty in actually creating music/soundscapes.

the satie one reminds me of aether...
