Today I’m presenting to you the track What remains by the German composer dopeman. dopemans read name is Niklas, and he started playing the piano at the age of 11 in his hometown in northern Germany. He started taking it more seriously around 2009 when he came up with the moniker dopeman.
This is the first time I’ve written a pure piano project, which was something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but up until recently, couldn’t build up the courage to do so.
The track What remains is taken from the album Unspeakable notes, which was released on June 26th of 2020.
Tell us something about your track What remains!
This particular song was the last song I wrote for this project, when I had already finished all the other tracks for quite a while.As the entire record is influenced by a time of turbulence in my private life, this one also carries a lot of emotional weight.When I was done writing all the other songs, I still felt that I had some things left to express, which I ultimately channeled in the last song of the album.As I usually also struggle to come up with song titles, I simply titled it “What Remains”, in reference to all the feelings that remained untapped until I wrote this final piece.
Thank you Niklas for this wonderful tune!
