Description
This song is dedicated to my wife, Kelley, in celebration of our FIRST anniversary this past May 14th.

This piece has three musical elements, or progressions, which are repeated with much variation throughout the song. As you listen, you may find you really enjoy the first 2 minutes. Well, sorry, but it moves past that. And if you happen to find the first couple of minutes not your cup of tea, give it a chance because you might just like where it goes. I think this work stands as a good example of how relationships work: a strong, solid foundation, on which you can always count on - but no two days are ever the same.

As always, comments are welcome - both the good...and the not so good. I prefer honesty to flattery.

I very much appreciate you taking the time to stop by for a listen.

Solid composition & construction
I know where you're coming from in explaining the first two minutes. I guess that's part of what happens when you're exploring something new yourself, you see yourself as part of the audience.

Truth be told, I'm such a guitar-guy that I do in fact have a hard time connecting when there are no guitars. As with "So What's 96," I just wanna hear more guitar soaring through here -- what you do of it is so very tasteful, and well blended. I feel like there's a visual of birds soaring around a near-cloudless sky in this one.

You're a fine composer and "constructor."

Thank you my friend
Believe it or not I am a guitar guy at heart. To be honest I really enjoy comments like yours because I WANT to create that longing to hear more in the listener. Even if it is only the guitar :-)

Thanks so much for stoppin' by, and for taking the time to comment - very much appreciated!

you introduce your work gently and then it enfolds with strength and intensity. It has the impact of an orchestral piece but oh so modern throughout. Congratulations. You have a lot to be proud of. :)

An Artful blending of Classical and Rock,
with a very subtle intertwining of jazz fusion. Exceedingly well done my friend in every way. A fine mix of genre, sound, and feelings.

I love what you've done Sigmund, a fitting tribute to the love of your life.

Hi Ed
My friend, it is good to see you here - thanks for stopping by for a listen, and your thoughtful comments are most appreciated. The reference to jazz fusion surprises me a bit, mostly because I don't consider myself to be even close to the caliber of most fusion players - quite a compliment. Thanks again!

Ed, I know you are going through some challenges right now - please know our thoughts and prayers are with you. Take care, brother. You are not alone.

Working our way into each other
Ah, the intricacies of relationships, and learning about each other... great musical topic. First of all, a big congratulations to you and Kelley. Secondly, you have a very compelling piece of music here. Nice dynamics and builds and choices of orchestration. I like the romantic intro, the tentative feel, the slow build of confidence as you work through mistakes, then get all confident and showy with the guitar work at the end, but maintaining the strings for balance throughout. Nice little metaphors hidden in there.

Orchestration is good, but strings and brass are notoriously tough to tame. Having ALL the strings start and stop at once in this, tends to accentuate the "MIDI" synthetic aspect of them, especially on the release part of the envelope. Try re-scoring the strings as multiple tracks (different octaves) and have their ending times vary slightly (or a lot). This helps mask the choppy nature of the strings... Drak's secret #4 :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

Hey There Eduard
As always, your presence on my music page is most appreciated. As are your very nice and thoughtful comments. The challenge I have with legato strings seems to be in the attacks, which can not be altered in GB. Believe it or not in the first section of this piece I get up to 8 tracks for the various strings, and while they are not all doing the same thing, I find that their synthetic nature comes out the most when they all happen to be doing the same thing. Needless to say, I am still working on improving that part of my compositions.

Thanks again, Eduard for your time and support here at MJ.

What a
Handsome couple you make too... great photo. Big Congrats on your anniversary Sig.
The opening is tentative (like relationships) then comes the tenderness and constance and then the entwining of the instruments some gentle some strong and a lovely strong theme running throughout. I think this sounds really wonderfully accomplished, with the mix of pop and orchestra... love that guitar. Excellent mix, regards M

Thank you for the nice compliment on the picture - Kelley makes me look good, in my opinion. As always your presence here is most appreciated (and of course anticipated). I am pleased to see you can draw the correlation to relationships as I intended - though some may feel things are not chaotic enough :).

Hey Dani !
Nice to see you here - thanks for stopping by, listening, and taking the time to comment. I agree with you about flaws - after all we are imperfect human creatures. Often those flaws give our music character and help define our uniques styles.

Having said that, constructive criticism can be a useful tool when given respectfully, and I often appreciate hearing critical comments as I sometimes spend so much time working on these pieces that I fear that I may at times lose objectivity - that other point of view can often be very helpful in keeping myself focused, or at the very least a thought to be considered for the next piece.

Since everyone is different I rarely give out criticism or advice unless it has been asked for, or I know the artist will appreciate it. So, always feel free to offer that critique or advice to me - I respect your talent and know you would deliver it tastefully.

thanks again for stopping by - very much appreciated!

I can only second what they said. Very well composed, and yes, at the volume I have to play this right now, some of the instruments sound a little synthetic, but that's our business and I personally have no big trouble with it. Thanks for the download, I'll return to this to listen on "bigger" speakers...

Congrats and take care.

To be honest, even though I strive to give the instruments authenticity, I am not all that bothered by how they sound - if you hear synth, and it sounds good to you, and you enjoy the piece, well, that is what is really matters anyway.

Thanks again for your input, and your support here at MJ!

Happy Anniversary!
Wow Sig, this is really a great composition. As far as song structure, you've created a beautiful flow, moving seamlessly between thoughts and emotions. I love the opening strings and then the solo piano introducing the themes of the song before letting loose with the drums, bass and guitar. And the coming back to the slower strings/brass for the ending is great, just the right length to give the song a feel of coming to a close. Leaving that last chord as a suspended chord instead of a full resolve was brilliant - letting the listener know that this love story is not yet over.

Eduard has given you some feedback on the strings already, so I won't say much. I thought you did a great job with the brass and the piano sound you chose is very nice. It's wonderful to hear your growth in using the orchestral instruments - as you experiment with the different abilities of stringed instruments. You did a great job of using the trills and tremolos in this piece to add some nice texture. 1:35ish the strings join the piano - I think that was one of the places they sound most synthy and it's probably because you played them on a keyboard. They sound like something a piano would do instead of how a violin would actually sound playing it. Maybe we can get together some time soon and talk about strings. They are tricky buggers.

Only other thought - I was listening through speakers and not headphones - the drums seemed slightly loud in the mix, but I may change my mind listening with earbuds in.

Excellent composition Sig. Listening to you broaden your musical palette and hone your skills with each new song is a wonderful gift. Thank you for sharing with us!

Ah, Shay
Mi amiga. Would you believe that when I post a new tune on MJ, my first thought is "What will Shay think of it?". If only I could articulate my thoughts with your grace and eloquence. Thank you for stopping by, listening, and sharing your thoughts, which always mean so much.

On the strings: Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrgggggggh!! That's all I'm going to say about that.

On the ending: glad you liked it. Interesting to note that I originally intended to end with one less chord - I was gong to end on the 'E' chord, and thought the 'B' resolved nicer, and never considered that to another listener it would still sound slightly unresolved.

On the drums: there really is fine line - sometimes it's hard not to cross it - guess that's the rocker in me!

I truly appreciate your support, and friendship, here at MJ. Thanks for everything!

So here's my comment and I'm typing live while I listen...
Nice soft beginning, almost like a soft march one might play in band in high school or something. I like the piano that comes in. Almost like "The Hill" from "Once". Nice beats and strings you've added in to keep it moving! I like how it's building! And now slightly getting an edgier feel; very cool! And ooh, more string with some cool voice like synth! I definitely love the building feeling! And ooh now it's a rock ballad type of thing! I like all these sections very much! Especially the combined sections! And silence... And now something a little different, but I like it. It's got the same kind of the energy the rest of the song has. And now a more modern rock section! Very very cool! I'm a sucker for electric guitars, lol! And the strings are back but it still has the same feel. And now the fade out with the beautiful strings!

So the final comment:
Very cool! I love all the different parts and different feels to it, but it's all tied together nicely too! That is just amazing! And I love the way it builds up in areas and the overall sound and feeling of the piece!

I wish you guys a wonderful happy ever after!

Pretty
Cool story... I love the guitar work. I like pieces that draw you in like this one. With each pass of the different progressions you hear something you may have missed in the previous pass. Lots going on in this, although not to much. Not sure about the percussion about the 1:25 mark and again at 1:48 to 1:56, the hi hat work is Ok but I found the drums to be somewhat stark and stilted, maybe if they were backed off a bit or you used a different sample (assuming they are midi) they pull away from the beautiful piano line and violin. When they come back around the 3:17 mark they sound better I think because of more instrumentation accompanies them. But honestly this is some of the best music I have heard in a while and is totally worth the download. You can be sure it will be in my roadtrip rotation when I head out on my bike for a run.

Thank you for stopping by to listen and comment. I really do appreciate it! We all have things we are better at then other (things). I doubt I will ever be able to play the guitar as well as you can, and I have been playing for years and years. But you never know - there was a time when the idea of playing anything other than guitar for me sounded impossible. So who knows where you will be in, say 10 years from now.

I am really glad I stopped by. I think this is the best one I ever heard from you. Nice mix of instruments - guitars and orchestra and some really compeling dynamic variety ... great flow with changes that keep the listener holding his breath through the whole thing. Great job!

there are so many different elements here its hard to just say a few words and not write an entire three page review, with that said I must say very impressive all the way through. The mix was ourstanding, the complimenting instruments choices were superb- 10's acoss the board.

solid use of orchestra on this. really like your bass playing. thoughtful composition - the trem effect on the guitar at about two minutes is genius.

Hi Sylvia
Thanks for coming by to listen and comment - I very much appreciate it! I sure don't know about 55 - that would make us both VERY old, but I will hope for every year I can get. This month my parents will be celebrating their 50th! Congratulations to you - 55 is really incredible. Thanks again!

wow. this is very complex and expertly composed. the percussion introduction at 1.20 was a total surprise....fantastic. are you classically trained? and now it's gone all rocky whilst effortlessy incorporating the orchestral theme. and now we're into some cool lead guitar solo. fantastic journey through several genres. big hats off. fan.

There are
some very, very interesting chords in here. This is wonderful...and I do like the change after the first two minutes (although I have to admit, I liked mins one thru two better, lol). This piece of music really does tell a story, as I've no doubt all of your music does. I'm impressed. Thanks for sharing.

Sig, I am really late on this, but I was exploring your music this evening and I must say that this composition just blew me away. Wow, such a passionate signature on your relationship. Loved it! By the, I enjoyed working with you on Loading Zone...another killer solo!

Cool!
I like this one Sig!
It has a fresh honesty about it and fits the picture well. Good solid strings back a sweet sounding piano work and it sounds quite free from any constraints. I'm guessing that this is your intention to mirror the relationship that you both have together. Well done my friend.

Hi Chris
Yes, relationships are full of ups, downs, twists and turns - you never really know what's gonna happen next. I wanted to emulate that type of experience with this piece. I am glad to see you stopping by to listen, and thank you for taking the time to comment - much appreciated!

love of my life
i think i got the meaning and intent of what you are trying to say. aint that what makes music so fantastic? love the uplift after 1:20. lots going on here with very nice progressions that have real feeling. dig the orchestration. guitar bits are cool and well thought out and not over the top. I'm at 3:30 now and i think this is super super super cool. now i'm really digging the solo - the first note that hits in is just excellent. this is an excellent tune and i'm now going to play again. very much enjoyed. cheers

I've been slow getting to this, but I'm glad I did! Rich sound and interesting progress in the composition. Does have a movie feel to it. The guitar is exceptional (although I'd have liked more of it, personally). Great talent on display here, Sig.
