Fire Sky


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is something I made about three years ago, actually. I post it today because it remains (in my opinion) one the most promising concepts that I've put together. The sound quality has been polished a little. Here's Fire Sky for you. It's got a different feel from my usual songs. Also, this was back when I used loops for the percussion sections pretty often – nothing too special beat-wise. Soon I'll post the totally revamped version. Thanks for being here!

Reminds me of the Ventures, for some reason. Cool, momentous drive along a West Coast highway.
Chimalus said 2806 days ago (July 17th, 2009)
Thank you so much!
I haven't heard of the Ventures, but perhaps I'll look them up. Thanks for your ears and your words. "Momentous" is a word that I love. We resonate, Richard. :)
