What's taking so long for folks to comment on this little jewel
I will be back to comment more - This yet another an amazing little
gem you've got here. I don't know how I get such kudos on percussion
- As I can recall, you're the one who consistently to creates what I
consider to be more of masterful sounding arrangement of hand
drums. The percussion here is warm, natural and pleasing to my ear - I
actually collect and play them. And warm natural are what's to be
reflected here... Your ivory work is also to be commended -
verrrrrrrrrry sweet - This is indeed a tasty aural treat.

It's very nice to hear that you're back and sharing your music, here sir.
- Thank you - And yes, kudos to you for doing such a fine job. You are
trained I believe, but you are quite gifted too - Thanks for sharing that
gift - Truly - Dion

What's taking so long for folks to comment on this little jewel
It seems as though you are the first to comment on a large number of the
songs submitted to this site, Dion. I attribute that fact to your generous
nature. Thank you from all of us for that.

Your being so percussion-aware, I'm pleased to hear you like the rhythm
track of this song. It's very enjoyable creating a groove with the percussion
instruments available. Glad you like the piano, too.

I consider what you said a very nice compliment, for which thank you very
much, but what you're hearing is perseverance, rather than training, which
I've had only in choral conducting (and two semesters of piano lessons).

Thank you again for your nice comment, Dion. I'm only one of many who are
pleased and even inspired to know our music connects with you.

Sorry I didn't vote the first time through - Don't know why I didn't - As you
can see, I was in a real hurry when I first came through and was gonna make
one statement and then return to finish, but changed my mind and completed
what I had to say. - So this is my return - No need to take the time to
respond, you're gonna be busy w/ that soon, I'm sure. And thanks for your

drakonis said 4102 days ago (March 31st, 2006)
groovin...
tasty nearly-middle-eastern jazzy thingie... would you like one hump or
two? I dunno, at first, it does start out feeling desert-like, then the pan-
pipes and that cool melody give it more of a Bolivian feel... and then the
jazz piano comes in and takes us somewhere else entirely. This is very
delightfully rich-sounding music. Well balanced, except for one nit pick,
there's a synth pad that seems to be panned a little heavily on the right
side and is distracting, feels like it should be closer to center, or spread
out. But the little solos with the guitar, piano, pipes, are all gorgeous.
And yes, you're giving Dion, Mister rhythm, a run for his money here.
ttfn,
Drakonis

groovin...
Eduard, thanks for the close listen and informed comment - I went back to the
file and realized that I had used two sounds for one of the pads, panned hard
left and right. I subsequently decided that the sound of the synth that was
panned left was too harsh, and the other synth was really sufficient by itself, so I
muted the left synth, but neglected to center the right synth. I couldn't hear it,
even with headphones - that was quite a catch by you. Very impressive
listening, there, Mr. Drakonis, and the fact that you paid that much attention is
greatly appreciated, as are your kind words.

A song of many moods
as I can see from the comments, here. Yet, all the moods are of one
traveler, one viewpoint. Gorgeous, lush piano, a breathtaking cornucopia
of textures and instrumentation. The percussion is so clean, I'm jealous of
your abilities in the area of production.
A real treasure in the sand : )

many fine artists here, but you produce such skillfull tracks as to
remove any ambience of amatuerism :-). its so well produced that i

The "sunshine" received on this WONDERFUL composition is WELL
deserved. Flawless... well thought out... complete... the changes,
textures and emotions evoked, transcend the obvious. Rich and lush. I
tip my hat to you and this marvelous piece. I wish it were longer,
though.

(Yes, I "tenned" it, too!)

Reason? Because I think it is THAT good!

indeed... ziti's right. Just wow. First of all, I'm completely floored by the soundbed, those strings and percussion--powerful and expansive, with divine, subtle touches. Then the flute sounds really good and then the piano comes in and brings the soundscape to a completely new level. I love that piano, as well as the other soloing instruments in there. What you're doing tonally is pure magic, magic I don't fully understand, but really enjoy. Beautiful music.

New Age Safari
The expansive feel of a New Age Safari. Clean and controlled and warmly
textured. I'd put this under New Age Jazz. Consider having a guitarist
play the acoustic guitar lines, it would add a huge amount of human feel
to the piece, and peace. Your tracks are so well crafted, so balanced and
polished. Very enjoyable.

Thank you, Tobin. I appreciate the nice words.

I will consider using an acoustic guitar on the next song I submit, if it has a
guitar part. Having put B3 tracks on two macjammers' songs, I realize that this
can be done fairly easily.

As always, I'm very pleased to hear you enjoyed a song of mine, Tobin. Thanks.

This is a smooth journey, FP - the twin pipe melodies are really tasty and I love all of the subtle percolations of rhythm that are lightly dusted throughout. Many beautiful changes of mood and atmosphere, I especially like the wide open spaces that you weave in slightly towards the end. Truly a breathtaking oasis and a great way to pause and luxuriate in this groove. Well done, man --

and it is nice to find it. This has a similar feel to a music tape I used to have... I got it a a travel store, all instrumentals. Like that tape this has a feel of the outdoors. The pan flutes are what grab me... it evokes memories of driving through the night in Arizona, as dawn came we stopped... so still, the smell of mesquite trees, everything fresh. I like your music a lot, Patrick. It always seems to capture a moment for me... thanks.

Very pro-sounding music, the kind I can only hear in a CD with a label

I have a lot of mood music CDs, and although admittedly I have no skill in
this genre of music, as a frequent listener I can say this is right up there
in terms of emotional content and quality of production.

youre a very talented musician... frankly though, i was a little
dissapointed with the progression... the part before the flute comes in
is very mysterious sounding... and the bass that accompanies the flute
really contributes well, but frankly, i was anticipating something a little
different... i think this is definately a good piece, but i was a little
suprised where it took me, and i was hoping that the vibe i got in the
very beginning would be consistant throught the song... dont take it
personally though please, this is a lot better than i could do... oh and
that guitar part at around the halfway point of the song is very
interesting and relaxing...

I guess that's what mystifies me about New Age Jazz like this. I'm so
pleased to hear how brilliantly you've meshed the acoustic and synthetic
voices. There are so many colors and textures in this, I'm audibly
overwhelmed. (that's a good thing!) Just when I was expecting a certain
change-up, you steer away to something completely different. This has a
certain Andreas Vollenweider feel. The resolution on the last chord... the
major key... is lovely. Great production & fantastic playing.

you somewhere with me, and the fact that you don't know where that will be is
fine with you. That kind of openness is exactly what a composer hopes for from

Thanks for listening and leaving a comment, Graham. I'm very pleased to hear
you liked this song.

I had noticed that we had Northern California in common as well, along with
other things: Like you, I have a degree in music. I was a beta-tester for
Opcode, and used their sequencers and sound editing programs from the
time they came out until Opcode was sold to Gibson. I have a bunch of
vintage gear, like you, which I also don't use much. I love the music of
Vaughn-Williams. I like using ethnic percussion in my music. Many parallels
here...

I also noticed your graphic work, which is spectacular. I was amazed by what I
saw on your website. You are obviously a very talented artist. This causes me
to appreciate your comments about my music all the more.

Thanks again for your nice words.

Where's the movie?
It's amazing, and conjures up strong imagery, so much so, that it would
work beautifully as a soundtrack. As others have said, it has a sense of
extraordinary professionalism, and is near-perfect. Love the feel, love the
sounds, and love the form.

In fact, the only criticism I have, after a few listens, is that IT IS TOO
SHORT! At first it didn't feel that way, but after listening to it again, I
REALLY wanted it to go on longer--that's how much I was enjoying it!

Nothing but 10's.

Your own compositions are in a league of their own on this site, as you are

complex compositions that are rewarding to listen to.

So for a composer with your tools to enjoy my untrained writing - that is very
significant to me, and, more importantly, inspiring. Thank you for your very

I love any kind of music that evokes emotion. I think sometimes music
becomes too cerebral and loses the soul. I fall victim to that quite often.
After the first listen... I felt a calm wash over me that was unexpected and
needed. Music that stirs that kind of imagery for me, is rare now days.

I love the peruvian style flute playing totally takes this to another place
and then the piano interlude just sweetens the deal, great guitar as well,
excellent effort!

Thank you, Mark
I have spent a great deal of time remixing this song. After reading what you wrote, maybe I should leave it as is...

In any case, I am very grateful you have heard some of my music, and your comments, in the context of your great skills as a guitarist and composer, are very meaningful to me. Much appreciated.

Excellent
I love the texture of this tune and the weaving of the sounds. I seem to hear a little Dave Grusin in your piano licks, no? Especially in the 2nd verse, after the piano solo. I love it. Also a little Rippingtons?

Everything sits so nicely in the mix - it just flows and all the instruments seems to be in exactly the right spot. Real guitar or Midi? The guitar solo sounds a little like a midi guitar, but it is very convincing and the guitar in the background really shines.

Just a great piece of music - thanks.

No Download -
I was disappointed that I couldn't download this piece. Do you have it for sale somewhere else? It is such a great tune.

Patrick,
I know nothing. (The technical devices and the jargon.) I feel everything. I heard influences from around the world, deft piano playing and inviting drum beating. You craft dignified, spell-binding sound scapes that take me on a trip around the world. I usually enjoy those trips so much that listen several times just to increase my time spent with your music. Thank you.
