Simple, and calming
Nice little melody, good use of instruments & fx, soothing harmonies.
You manage to vary things a little as it goes on, keeping it from getting
monotonous. When the big synth comes in about 1/3 in, it is a little
jarring, you might want to ramp its volume up & back down a little, to
keep with the "ambient" feel. Otherwise, it was very nice.
ttfn,

Pretty...
Sometimes a collection of sounds can render words useless... so
inferior ones are used clumsily to convey the the response...

Certain parts held a grandness to them... inspiring images of Lord of
the Rings.

I could almost feel the sand beneath my feet.

Pleasant dreaming
Very delicate beautiful moodscapes.
Pleasant dreams.
Perfect for freeing the mind of stress.
Enough variation to keep you listening and lulled to rest.
I grew up in Atlantic Canada with the sea outside my window and it put
me to sleep at night. This piece very much has that same wonderful
Ocean soothing sound. Lush synths coming and going like the waves
on the shore..

floatyness
so far i feel like im floating. there are some things that help the monotoneness but i still think it gets a bit too monotone. i like the picking, but after a while it kind of gets irritating. there's a nice change about half way through. i'd like to see another one a little earlier as well. 2/3 way through there's some nice synth coming thru the left speaker but it's a little high volume wise. i like the idea of it. with some more variations this would be really amazing.

big sound
Nice, evocative of the ocean (nearly as good as opening my window to
hear the Tasman Sea outside). You clearly have some skills in this
area, and have produced a track that would not be out of place as a
soundtrack. It would sound great cranked right up through a big
sound system. Unfortunately, living so close to the sea I have
developed an intense hatred of seagulls (only joking). Good post -
look forward to the rest of the EP.

Moments of true beauty…
… are rare in life and on MacJams. There's a lot of ambient music
out there but very little of it captures what you have captured here
… a glorious musical experience smoothly and skillfully
representing a real sensory experience. This has a hint of Eno at
his most melodic, plus the merest hint of Enya. It fortunately never
falls into the wishy-washy, background music trap, all too
common with ambient musicians. It's neither too cerebral nor too
bland, getting the balance right on nearly every level Good luck
with the EP… if it's all this good then count me in for a copy!

Don't know how you even begin to make a track like this, but don't stop
now!

From Spare to Rich, Sparkle to Depth with movement and subtle
momentum throughout.

If it were a touch longer, i'd think about driving across country again.

Thank you very much Slimmie.

The seagulls did seem a little obvious to me, however I tried it with the shipping forecast and with a pride of lions roaring and it din't have the right vibe!

Thank you though. I do admire your music, so it's cool to get a nice comment from you.

The Composer said 4079 days ago (January 25th, 2006)
nice and relaxing.
Quite a nice piece with a good ambient feel and decent production.

Scream mentioned before that the guitar became a little irritating after
a while before it broke down into sparser lyrical passages. One of the
reasons I reckon this might be is that because you're using midi
instruments and a delay/echo line the guitar lines have become to
precise and metronomic. Not only do you have a heavily quantised
guitar track, but you're emphisising that strict timing by having the
delay/echo lines filling in all the quaver gaps. One solution might be
to try and achieve the sense of depth some other way (reverb, or a long
delay period), or to try and get (or imitate) a real guitarist, as they'd not
be able to repeat anything exactly, or be 100% in time.

Besides, one of my images of the sea is that although its always
constant, its also constantly changing.

Also with the synth that enters with the second playing of the melody,
its just a little too percussive. It'd be real nice if there was just a
slightly long attack time to the sound (or perhaps some reversed
reverb)... as it'd be very easy to connect that sound to waves on a shore
(which of course, you can hear comming before they crash).

One last thing, theres a good 40 seconds of silence at the end of your
track. Not sure whether you know its there or not (occasionally I find
several minutes on the ends of my tracks for no reason). Not
incredibly useful for an internet track (Almost another megabyte for
poor old dial-up users to download), but may well have its uses for a
CD.

Anyway, quite enjoyed this. Nice work.

Thank you very much for your observations and your suggestions.
Certainly food for thought.
I'm not sure how the silence got there. I'll look into that.

It's interesting that you mention the guitar line. It's an arpeggiator and I guess that's why it may sound jarring. I'll have a faff and see what comes up.

Thanks for your comment.

The Guitar line doesn't sound Jarring... just the heavily quantised nature of it
means that it gets boring quickly... /irritating in Screams words.

Gah No! I'm just pointing out that the guitar line does not sound jarring. The
sounds/melody your are using sounds fine, I'm just pointing out the its
quantised/metronomic nature of it thats bugging me. Not trying to be
bitchy, its just that it sounded like you mis-understood me and I was just
trying to clear that up.

Captures the changing moods of the sea, and its ebb and flow, really

listening to this during my usual early morning hours of insomnia, while

an island in the North Atlantic, and somehow, the music seems to serve
as a soothing tonic for all the wildness about me.

Nice pacing, overall form.

The full array
First of all this is a fantastic piece of music, I play it again and again as
I write this. I am speaking from experience. I basically make a living
from creating boards to ride ocean waves. The experience consists of
far more than the paddling standing and riding, it is the washed clean
feeling when a wave washes over you (as your music implies). It is the
rush of an in line flight of pelicans silently gliding by riding the updraft
along the rim of a wave. Or just sitting on the beach at the end of a day
watching the water fill the sky hissing out the sun. BUT! I think you
have the greatest array of comments ever on this song, detailed and
enlightning, lead by the genius Bizzarre, he freaking kills me! I was
rolling!.. In any event can't wait for more, and thank you. The sun is
coming up and I am beating it down to the beach.
