7:30 seconds into the piece. The loud bass key is added in there at the beginning of the ascending notes giving it that dark feeling.
10:00 Minutes into the piece he starts to slow down on in between his ascending then will speed up and soften his notes changing his piece once again adding onto what he is already doing.
