This is an old mix, revamped with a very gradual fade-out ending.

It's supposed to be a dream sequence but you can make up your mind.

The development of the mix may be a tad slow but I'll let you decide.

I am studying
The track puts the brain where it is mostly not, in chill-out mode. Still need to read, and explain what has been read by me to my students. Need to focus. This track just hit the spot. The mix is slow but the build-up is ' fast' enough to keep my neural network firing. Perhaps the mix is too much focussed on the end, where you introduced new instruments? I dunno. I enjoyed it still.

Good point Jb....
I'll have to listen to this again because you've raised a point and Michael raised a point too.

It's amazing, to me, how listeners make tunes 'their own' with their own interpretation of tunes. Henri Rogers had the point that maybe some mixes should be uploaded without a description so that listeners could use their imagination to take them 'wherever' and I'm beginning to see why this is a great idea.

The fact that you were able to utilize this piece of 'music' to do work really makes me happy. I'll definitely have to work on marketing this sort of stuff!!

Thanks for listening and leaving your thoughtful comments. I'll be checking out your own music later today. I don't know how I've 'missed' all your work.

Take care.

not too
slow at all. i think it's more cinematic with the long build-up. would have liked the whole song to go on longer. very nice, sounds are great. are those birds with a lot of delay on them (not the obvious bird sounds but the other screechy/clicky background sound?)

Hey Michael.....
The sounds are all from high quality Soundfont sets. What I did was use a default synth preset and tweak the settings whilst recording (to try and evolve the sound), so it could be real birds or tweaked birds or something else entirely. I'll see if I can find out the actual sounds used as it's so long since I did the mix that I've forgotten.

The mix has been sitting around for a while because it's one of those that I didn't immediately like, because of all the bird noise. I'm still not sure if I want to listen to it more than once!!

Take care.

worry about it, I was just curious/ and i can definitely understand not wanting to hear your own song "one more time." well. I like it even if you're sick of it.

Hi Henri...
I used avian harmonics!!!!!

The original sounds seemed in tune and if I transposed them, the sounds were still in tune.

Thanks for listening and leaving your thoughts.

...after a while they stop being birds and become light waves shimmering through icicles... millions of icicles whispering to each other with light. The sun is brilliant, one of those winter suns that's pure white-diamond fire in a pale blue sky, and icicles as far as the eye can see.

Very cool trip.

Hi Rik.....
I love your description. I wish I'd said those words.

Thanks for listening and leaving some great words.

Something very Myst-like about this
particular piece. For me, it evokes images of familiar things we can relate to directly or we have seen in pictures, but it does so with a twist and at a distance, like an other-worldly dream which appears a bit over-exposed visually. Despite for me being at a distance, I am immediately drawn in to watch the progression of images and sounds unfold. I like the voice, the way you introduce the rhythm and bass pattern mid-piece, how this same pattern fades away into dreamy and swirl, and of course the modified bird sounds! I was left feeling that when the bass/drum pattern stopped it would be reintroduced again after a bit of a break before fading again and bringing the piece to a conclusion. Not sure why - maybe I liked it and wanted to hear it again, or maybe it felt like it wanted to have one more appearance before fading off.

After about 6 listens I can only say masterfully done Paul!!
Keep well,
