Celestial Tune

This piano composition is inspired by our universe. The music starts with a giant chord that represents the Big Bang, or the Original Intention if you prefer. Just as the Big Bang contained the matter and energy to create our entire universe, this chord contains all the notes this composition needs. As time passes, the chord becomes arpeggio, then melody, then detached notes, so as to reflect the expansion of our universe. As you listen, imagine planets rotating around their suns. As they revolve, they constantly move away from you, then come back half a cycle later. Departures followed by returns. Questions and answers. This simple alternance serves as the main structure of this piece.

My piano is a delight to play when it has just been tuned. Individual notes sound pure and have a beauty on their own. They invite the player to get lost in the timbre, not the music. A recent tuning inspired me to play just notes, and create this sound generator. The notes that have been used are borrowed from the Ionian mode (also known as the major scale). This mode is described as bright and happy, with little tension. Every time you reload this generator, you create a new instance: a new universe, if you like, but one that uses the same ingredients, the same set of notes. Discover two other universes in the Celestial trilogy : Aeolian and Phrygian.

  Stacking this with some nature sounds is the Breath of the Wild soundtrack fix I've been looking for, I've wanted this exact thing for years. Truly excellent work!

  Been listening to this with the tranquility setting of Pebble Beach. Highly recommend it! -p

  You are a genius!

  Stéphane, with this generator you have taken your work to a new level. What a wonderful concept and beautiful execution! This is a piece of art, where you clearly share your love of tone and space, subtlety and punctuation, mathematics and emotion. Bravo!

  Lydian/Locrian seems pretty good! Personally I think you should try those, whatever floats your boat.

  Using this site for almost 2 years, donated once. Just today I listened to 88 Keys and I really enjoyed it. I am 16 and it was really really wonderful for my studies. When I started to fall in love with the pianoscape. BAM! Another “piano” masterpiece comes in, wonderful! This site is literally my favourite, whatever site may exist in the world but myNoise is very special.

  This is lovely. Looking forward to the Aolian and Phrygian ones as well.

  So peaceful and lovely! Great for lifting you out of a bad mood. I like this combined with rain sounds.

  Nice one Stephane, I was waiting for you to upload another piano piece, I knew you had it coming but just so you know it was well worth the wait! It's simplicity makes it beautiful; nice work!

  Such a strong Breath of the Wild mood, and I love it!

  Simply beautiful! I love the way the notes melt into a melodic piece as you listen. Great for working in my home office!
