Strange Enchantment (Forest Glade Mix)



 Genre: Ambient
No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

This mix came about as another experiment in using very similar programming (to 'The March of the Diesel Electric Robot' that I uploaded a short while ago) but with both different dynamics, instruments and ambiance.

It's as much experimental as ambient but please let me know if I've missed the mark by miles in putting it under ambient.

As always, comments good or not so good are both welcome and appreciated.

Probably more experimental...
Very unique - is it a loop? Like Tomita on acid!!!

Hi Daniel....
Tomita on acid is about right. He's a brilliant and innovative artist and his 'Snowflakes are Dancing' album is one of my most played. It's the one where he does Debussy with Moog's.

I'm glad that you like this mix. There will be many more!!

I'll stop by to listen to your music.

Take care.

Dance of the...
...Technoids! I don't know where this should be placed: it is sui generis, as are most of your amazing creations. There is a certain whimsy to this that is very appealing. It's always a pleasure to hear your unusual inventions.

Hi Paul....
The mix is just a different take on one of my themes, but that sounded different enough for me to upload it.

The only thing about the mix that I forgot to warn people about was that the volume by default was loud.

I'm glad that your still around for the musical mystery tour that is R56. Even I don't know what's coming next, only that something will!!

Take care.

you know
i totally agree with the Tomita reference. this is one of your best in awhile Paul, not sure why but this really resonating with me. almost carnival like (fun and slightly sinister at the same time). is that a drum in there, or is that the attack on a synth? great piece of music.

Hi Michael.....
Yes it's a drum. One of a number of percussion effects that I used from the Edirol Orchestra plugin. I use this a lot in various mixes. I used two instances in the mix, one mainly for percussion and one for the flute. (I'd use more but I'm currently limited in my processing power and my laptop just will not take more than 3 instances of this with everything else loaded).

I'm putting together stuff so that there's a beat, rhythm and a definite melody part even if the melody is not too self-evident. I don't know what will come out next but I'm there for the ride, so what the hell, eh?

My main experimental area at the moment is in tone spaces, where I feed midi data through a plugin called Tonespace, and then set this up whilst things are playing, to see what effect different settings have on the music being produced. It seems to be effective and the last 5 or 6 uploads have had these type of arrangements within them.

Take care.

You're so creative, I just love how you continue to push the envelope and come up with new ideas. This is so interesting, kind of intriguing actually and there's a slight "wacky" feeling that makes it impossible to turn off. I liked the "carnival" reference earlier. Keep going!

Hi Karen.....
Carnival is good, even though sinister, eh??

Whatever folks hear in my tunes is OK with me. I hadn't heard the carnival as I was tied up in the stream thing. It seemed, to me, to overtake all the other aspects of the mix, so I went down that path with all the later work I completed with the tune.

I like the idea of pushing the boundaries as there aren't really any boundaries except maybe scales and human hearing range. Everything else hinges on personal choice, mood and feelings.

I could also just play the piano and play my composed music but that would mean more hard work and I'm in a lazy phase. This has lasted over a year and might last another. I tend to just go where the music/sounds take me.

Thanks for being appreciative of my offerings.

Take care.

Once again....
Thanks H. for stopping by, listening and leaving your kind words.

This is just another one of my mad moments.

Take care.

Rather than a dance...
I see robots working a monotonous assembly line, maybe, ...building people. Only, they keep the rejects on the belt, because they want to be the only perfect creatures. Eh? Neat!

Hi Char.....
I think your ideas are equally good. I would say that whatever anyone imagines when they listen to this music is what the music is about.

Thanks for listening and leaving your kind words.

Take care.
