Description
Joy. Exuberance. Celebration. Bells. Continuity of Sound.

This is a mix I've just knocked up whilst watching European Football.

Sometimes the Joy of Life takes over.

Hi Kenta....
I think it's great that you have enjoyed this piece. It was a slight departure for me, but in the same general direction of trying something different every time I make a piece of music.

Take care.

Hi ML.....
The bells part of the piece came through trial and error, where I had a theme and then tried various soft synth sounds until I came across a group of bell sounds and the one I used just happened to sound best for the duration of the notes in the phrases.

I'm happy you like the piece. Maybe there's another one or two in the pipeline for you to listen to.

Take care.

!
Very original and different... somehow sounds kind of urgent and menacing but with the irony of "joyfull" bell sounds over top. Nicely done!

Hi dM....
The mix came through trial and error, as I mentioned to Linda, above. Sometimes things fit with a bit of work, sometimes with more work and sometimes never. This piece fitted together very quickly, and I'm glad that others found something in it to like.

Take care.

Hi SF.....
The piece was put together with energyXT2, using soft synths, and by substituting various sounds in mixes until something stood out. It's really experimental, because I didn't start off by thinking of mixing bells!!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Take care.

Great Stuff!
Luminous with lots of movement. At times it makes me think of some of Thomas Newman's stuff from the 80s. Really like this.:)

Hi Max...
The movement is important to me. I enjoy playing sounds off against each other with tones, beats and dynamics. Contrasts are another big area of my philosophy on music production.

Thanks for listening and leaving your kind words.

Take care.

Another great track
This has a tremendous balance of elements all shifting around each other, creating a terrific dynamic tension. Cinematic and atmospheric, and filled with joy. Nice work. Peace.

Thanks Dajama....
The trick was completing the phrasing, chords, sequence, number of tracks and then fitting the sounds of the tracks together in a way that sounded just about right.

Hopefully things succeeded.

Another track may follow, that is more Father Time (i.e clocks AND bell sounds) but it gets a little 'busy' so it may be uploaded as Experimental, even though it has structure (and harmony).

Take care.

this is
great. i read down below and I love how you record stuff with soft synths and then experiment with different sounds while mixing. i've always admired your liberating sense of exploration (that is always fruitful and captivating). great job paul.

Thanks Michael.....
In my replies to everyone I've tried to explain my technique for putting this mix together. The only part that is missing is the production, where I tried to use compression to make the parts stand out. I always do this separately for each piece I put together, as the only standard for settings appears to be experimental.

Thanks for listening and the kind words. I don't aim for 'different every time' but probably just lack 'focus' on one genre and so have a bigger 'state space' of thoughts and ideas that I'm willing to go with.

Take care.

Once again...
...Paul, you write something completely unique. It is much brighter and lighter than many of your recent "dark" posts, and equally as precise. I don't know much about this, but since it is repetitious, I can easily see this track as a loop-foundation for all sorts of things. Your creativity is truly amazing to me.
Peace.

Reinholt56 said 3591 days ago (February 16th, 2008)
Hi Paul....
The concept for this (and other) pieces is simply having a 'state space' of possibilities, without a solid boundary. This will allow me to come up with one or more ideas, maybe similar or maybe different to what went before. I then work with these ideas and take them to one or more levels of completeness and then I move on, to either finish the piece or start something else. The index of possibilities is probably infinite, only limited (in some cases) by sensibility and the musical ears of others.
Thanks for your kind words and encouragement, Paul.

Take care.

nice shimmering sounds
kind of a train of airy synth sounds.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Tiler.....
I do try to vary pieces and the bell sounds just seemed so right for this phrasing and mix.

Thanks for listening and leaving your comments.

Take care.
