Description
Well, now I am officially a Logic Pro user!

And this is my first little test. Just a short interlude with a nice flute and a few more tracks (including some base for the Dragon, if he feels like listening ;-)

Please let me know if you want to add something to this, in a way it doesn't sound finished, but I don't know how to go on right now, so...

Artwork is a photo from my office window a few weeks ago when the setting sun was shining through the rain. All natural colors!

Thanks for listening!

wow ...
this is going to sound strange but is meant as a compliment.... this so reminds me of some early brian wilson work nearly around the Pet Sounds era or perhaps Holland. This needs expanding indeed! Great sound bed for something wonderful. :-]

Thank you Jack!
Very nice of you to come and listen and comment on your time out(?)!

Brian Wilson, huh. Sounds like Beach Boys to me, but I'm probably out jogging on that one ;-) Oh, I just checked, and I was right?!?!

Thanks for encouraging me to go on with this one. I'm just not sure which direction to take. Working on a more techno-like thing right now...

Stay well!

Cool
That you have LOGIC and even cooler that you've done this.
Very nice sound bed.... This can as Jack says be even more wonderfully.

Thanks Kenta!
It IS pretty cool, and not as hard as I thought it would be. A few things to learn how to find and meddle with and I am on the same level as on GB. Only 1000's or million's more things to choose from. Feels like it will be some time before I start making my own software instrument sounds e.g. ;-) Then again I don't understand 90 % of all the rest, but who cares. As long as there comes music out of it ;-)

Thanks for listening and commenting! Stay well!

Henke said 3294 days ago (November 17th, 2008)
Thank you, Feter!
Much appreciated! I wanted this to be simple, to let each instrument be heard, but there seems to be room for development... (The bass is two standard loops I found in "The Studio" :-)

Stay well!

Thanks a lot Len!
I like them too, but not sure which way to go from here. Any ideas?

Really liked your latest too, with Becca. What a voice!

Stay well!

sigh...
moving up in the world now! Very nice work, and yes, Logic does seem to help you make this sound very crystal clear. Yup, I like the bass line in there, and overall, this is sort of a dreamy lazy happy sounding little snippet. I could imagine this being worked into a very nice piece of music. The flute melody is pretty, but the flute "sound" is a little artificial sounding... there's no real vibrato in it, and there's some phaser or something instead that makes it sound synth-ish. But all the other stuff sounds really nice, composition and mix are sounding good.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Henke said 3294 days ago (November 17th, 2008)
Well I guess...
But for some things I miss GB, I mean I was just starting to find out how to use it! Now I am quite a novice again, even if it helps to have used GB before.

About the flute sound I am not quite with you, I thought it sounded very real. I have played the flute once upon a time, you know... It's not like vibrato is built into the instrument, it's a way you can play it, but it surly is not compulsory?! The phaser effect you hear, could it have to do with it being a surround sound? Not sure...

Again, I am happy that you can hear a future for the piece. I only wish I could too :-/

Thanks again for listening and commenting! Always appreciated!

Stay well!

very nice
Logic I need to learn it .. THis sounds well mixed a little short but since it is a test Im shure you will work on it. It was a very enjoyable listen thanks!

Henke said 3294 days ago (November 17th, 2008)
Thank you!
I am glad you liked it!

About logic, although there are SO much you can do, the "usual" things (for me) is not that hard to get going with. It took awhile to find the "a" for automation, but once I found it, it is kind of nice, also the lists, where you can trim each note to perfection. But I still wonder why the default on this song was to "bounce" the duration minus ca 5 bars in the beginning and end of it. Rather strange I think...

Thanks for listening and commenting!

Sounds
The instruments do sound richer. Nice choices for a first piece. Is the bass a loop or did you do that in Logic?

Thanks

Thanks Bill
for listening and commenting, glad you like it. The bass is just two loops from the abundancy of the Studio :-)

Stay well!

Beautiful
I love it.
Your music full of colour.
The bass guitar I really like and the intro is surreal.
The flute is real full bodied and dense.
Looking forward to listening to more of your stuff .

ps. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking time out ( a lot of time ) on my material .
It is a true compliment to get that amount of listening time from someone as talented as yourself .
You have similar taste in music to myself with Oldfield , Jarre , Tdream etc.
You made my day thanks so much Henke. I am not online very often so excuse my tardy replies.

Sorry I forgot to answer you here...
I think my heart was overwhelmed by your gracious comment so I couldn't come up with a satisfying reply. No, really! But hey, you are the talented one here and I definitely need to spend a lot more time with your music. I hope to see you around a lot in the future. Thanks again!

Made me think that
is perhaps the characteristic of good Cinematic Soundtracks in that they don't sound finished, they sound anticipatory. That's how this sounds.

Thank you.

Could be
could be... It is a bit sad or melancholy anyway. Glad you liked it, even if it's just a little test with Logic.

Stay well!

Welcome to Logic!
This is very cool. Bass is booming through nicely. I like bells, so this is a winner!

So far just this short visit, I've been hybernating musically this "winter", but hope to wake up soon, with the spring sun. Glad you liked it anyway, it IS kind of nice... :-)

I love where this is going
Nice soundstage, instrumentation and overall feel. There is something else that this music is calling for to let it soar even higher. You've captured a really relaxing atmosphere with a hint of anticipation. Another gem!

Be well,
Doug

Henke said 3193 days ago (February 26th, 2009)
Hi Doug!
I think you nailed it with this kind comment. It's a nice start - for a music project, for me using Logic etc - but it's not quite a "masterpiece" yet, and was never meant as one, really. The anticipation hint is there, though, I agree.

Thank you, glad you liked it even as is...!

You're getting a very SPACIOUS sound outta Logic Henrik.

Very nice arrangement. Contemplative mood...

Ha, ha
Yeah, don't you think? Isn't that why we should upgrade from GB?! Actually I havn't opened Logic since I made this little interlude. Neither have I opened GB much but I would not be surprised if the next song I post will be GB made... We'll see.

I have started on an evening course at the university this week about web and database programming (apache, mysql, php), so possibly there will not be so much time for music making and perhaps not even as much MJ listening as I would like, until beginning of June. We'll see about that too.

Many thanks for listening and commenting! You be well too, my friend!

Ambient, indeed.
Nice going on this little song. It is extremely mellow and peaceful. The string bed is so subtle and is the glue that holds this all together. ... You are right,though: this does come across as unfinished. You have made a great start, but the tune and the underlying chording has to GO somewhere else with a bit of development. I hope you will take another look at this, because the piece has so much potential to be a VERY satisfying composition. (Bass is maybe just a little too much forward in the mix.)... You did a great job with your new LogicPro. You will, no doubt, have a lot of fun with it.
Peace.

Thank you, sir!
I'm honoured by your visit and by your elaborate comment on this little interlude. It was really just a small test what I could do in Logic. I see what you mean about the bass - and by the need for development. Still, as a short interlude between "better" songs I guess it might work. After this I haven't had any fun with Logic, though. Hardly opened it up at all. A pity, but I'm like that, not very productive and need lots of time between my little "masterpieces" (just kidding). Thanks again for your comment and notes - and of course for all of your great music you are sharing here on MJ (found a lot of them in my iTunes playlist today).
Peace.
