Liner Notes: 

I'm seriously late entering my song but I spent under an hour creating it, another hour finding an image and I didn't get to start composing some hours after the theme was announced, not even when I said I was starting as I needed to do many other things. But better late than never. With this in mind I'm posting it now. Looking forward to listening/reading tomorrow which is effectively today but later, it's 00:41 in London,

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

This has a lovely restless quality to it. It work very nicely as film scoring, or as a stand alone piano solo. I enjoyed listening to it a lot. Thanks for sharing.

This does have a restless vibe........almost a clock tick-tocking in the rhythm that's like frustratingly watching a clock that isn't going anywhere restlessness, yet still tranquil somehow hahah
Really great write!

Has the feel of not being able to sleep - delicately intense, and also quite lovely.

Love the "calculator" piano rhythmic playing, somewhat reminiscent of Philip Glass and the minimalist style. I always like the confident touch you have on the piano! I enjoyed listening to this piece.

I imagine the clock ticking as one tries to fall asleep, and being somewhat unsuccessful. I like tjeff's analogy to Phillip Glass. Nice one, Nadia

This is special. It is rich in intensity and atmosphere. You really captured the feeling of trying to get to sleep.

What I get from this is sleep as a deliberate, calculated act. As an effort of responsibility, sleep as work rather than rest. That hits home and reminds me of Philip Glass, Koyaanisqatsi in particular

This is beautiful Nadia! It has a gentleness but at the same time a kind of drive as it plows ahead! It makes me think of a strong but gentle mother guiding her child lovingly but persistently! I enjoyed my listen!!

Always worth the wait. I love the way this rolls about like restless sleeping. Intense and intriguing. This would work well over some dramatic cinematography. And 00:41!! Get some sleep.
