Woo, that's crazy. I did not expect to rank so high. It's pretty cool, though, so thank you to everyone that liked our song.

I was really the one that wanted to enter this month. Careless and Strader just sort of participated as a favor to me. Somehow, they've never played Symphony of the Night. That was crazy to me, especially since Careless claims to be a big Castlevania fan.

I know he's not necessarily the most popular dude around here, but Strader really deserves a lot of credit for mixing the song (he also did drums). He had worked double shifts two days in a row and had been awake for something like 30+ hours, but he still came through the night before the deadline. He even did a few tweaks on the song that I requested before going to sleep (we ask him for all sorts of dumb little changes). Speaking of tweaks...

After DoD, I had Strader make a few more tweaks to the mix, the most notable one being that we cut the electric guitar lead the first time around and just have the nylon string guitar be lead. Also, there's a little accordion at the end now. Here's the updated song in video form -

Whoa, thanks everybody! I guess I'm not the only one around here who digs ragtime.  :D

Is this the first-ever solo piano win? I searched a bit among the usual piano suspects but couldn't find any other winners.

Okay, I have my arrangement idea ready and even some scratch tracks recorded from a free month I bailed on. I'm fucking doing this shit, goddammit, no more brevity-month-only for me.

I feel like solo piano entries do really well in DoD. I guess maybe they don't usually win first place, but they seem to place near the top.

Oh man, Free Months are rad but also super tough. I feel like without the theme limitation, I have way too many ideas.
