Description
How can there be no Electronica genre? Not that it matters, because I have no idea what to call this piece. A little bit of Space Ambient, a chunk of Drum-N-Bass, a whole lotta New Age, and a dash of Muzak for good measure. Me playing with synths and continuing to explore my way through Logic. It's a long one - put the headphones on, close your eyes and relax.

per·i·he·li·on
–noun, plural -he·li·a
the point in the orbit of a planet or comet at which it is nearest to the sun.

Love It
The beginning reflects the vastness of deep space. Love the piano. Such a delicate theme that constantly evolves. Love the cello. Nice percussion. Great use of dynamics. Like the guitar part. Nice idea to have the piano fade away like a planet drifting out into a deeper orbit.

Muzak? I don't think so. No Muzak I ever heard was good, let alone this good. And this is very, very good.

Thanks for being first! I really tried to spread this out and give it lots of room - both panning and dynamics - to give the feeling of space. I'm glad that came across for you. When you've listened to this song as many times as I have, it will start soudning Muzaky - I promise! lol...thanks for listening Andrew.

I just
knew this was going to be good Kassia........ love the spaciousness and the slow introduction of the piano and other instruments... the Indian drum fits well into this and the build is 'grand'. The synth works wonderfully with the other instruments and the ending is so subtle, regards M

How wonderful to see you here! I'm glad you liked the Udu (drum). It's one of my fave parts of the piece, but I wasn't sure how it would fit in with the "space" theme. Thanks for your wonderful comment.

There and back again
Very well thought-out piece. The initial synth has its own slow flange cycle, giving me imagery of a slowly spinning object. As it nears the sun and begins to warm up, the melting ice begins to reveal new melodies, who dance in the sunshine, only to slowly die back down and spin slowly away again. Nice choices of sounds (you don't get carried away with blips for the sake of blips, as some of us do), heart-tugging piano melody, and crisp clean mix. Are you practicing for the next SpaceRace Challenge, then? :-)

Well, I've been talking about doing a synthy piece for a long time and it's finally here! After working on the Pirate music non-stop I needed something calming...lol. I'm very glad to hear you say the mix seemed clean to you - I've really been trying to experiment with Logic's different plugins and settings. I added some stereo spread to this, as well as reverb and I did a lot of fiddling around with the EQ. Thanks for your thoughtful comment - and all of your synth advice and help over the past year or so.

Just call it great! That should be your genre.
This is so wonderfully relaxing and engaging at the same time - with elements of Pink Floyd and David Bowie floating in and out of the ether. Please keep playing around with synths.

Your "and two" is still one of my fave relaxation pieces EVER and has been a huge influence on me when considering pacing and fading. I'm not sure I'll ever get to 18 minutes though...lol....the 7:30 of this kept me busy enough. I'm definitely hooked on synths - and really love the idea of combining them with orchestral sounds, blurring genre lines. Thanks for coming by for a listen!

Wonderful Pacing
You take us on a meditative journey which is very well paced, from the opening slow, gradual changes to the more rhythmic middle section (wonderful chord progressions!) and then back to the slower one for a nicely symmetrical finish.

I agree that you should explore this avenue of musical expression further; you have a gift for combining interesting sounds and just as importantly, PACING them well.

Music, after all, expresses emotion and mood, and what you have created here is very soothing without being boring or static.

Very good work, Shay!

As I said in an earlier comment response, I'm a little obsessive about pacing - in my own music and in listening to other stuff. I'm very happy that my obsession has paid off here. The middle section chord progression, lol, took a few tries to get right, but I really like the way it ended up. I wasn't sure how the organic instruments would meld with the synth stuff, but it seems to all come together pretty well. Thanks for listening and leaving a great comment!

Really lovely
Kass, it seems you have learned how to twiddle the knobs. This is so well put together. I especially like the pads and the dynamics in this piece. It's certainly not muzak my dear! Terrific work.

Dave!
Oh to be able to twiddle the knobs as well as you do.....sigh....someday perhaps. I'm just excited to have figured out what flange does. The pads were the easy part of the piece, they seemed to just slide right in underneath the original piano. It was the leads that gave me some trouble - all those bleep bleeps and whoosh whooshes. I think I still need some lessons. Thanks for listening!

This song is great for me on a sad day, a point where my friend and I are furthest from each other.
kassia said 2576 days ago (June 10th, 2010)
bob
music speaks to so many shared human emotions. and many times the same song can speak of entirely different things, depending on what is resonating within us at the time of listening. for some this is a sad piece - I can definitely hear it. for me, it's more a piece of wonder and quiet celebration of beauty. perhaps someday you and your friend will come back around to each other and you will hear different things in this song. i hope so. thank you for listening.

Perihelion
Shay - simply SUPERB. Captivating from the first sweep. Every instrument fits perfectly and comes in (or out) at just the right time. The piano, when it comes in, brings everything back to earth - grounds it. There are enough twists, turns and surprises to keep one's attention until the end - the length means nothing here.

In my opinion, one of your finest pieces yet.

I think the intro with the swirling synths is a bit too long but I am a bit too impatient. Once the keys come in, the melody is very pleasant and soothing. I like the slow build of the song as it goes along. The song could use a bit more lead melody to carry it and add variation IMO. Very well produced sound that definitely has a relaxation vibe going on. Enjoyed it.

Thank you for your careful listen and thoughtful comments. Somewhere in me is a composer yearning to make ambient music. I guess this piece is a compromise between that Shay and the New Age Shay that usually has precedence. I seriously could listen to that opening swirly synth all day, so i may have put more in that is wise but I really wanted the piece to be soothing. I agree that there really isn't much of an overall melody, but again, I wanted this to be more of a mindless medley of sounds than anything you would focus on. Thanks for listening!

i always wanted to play the cello
I held off on adding the cello, or any other strings to this piece because I thought they wouldn't go well with the spacey/synthy sound, but after unsuccessfully trying to find a synth sound that fit in that spot I finally tried the cello (with a few effects added) and it worked perfectly. Sometimes you just gotta stop fighting the music and let it do what it wants. lol...thanks for coming by for a listen.

french horns in spaaaaace. i'm still learning the art of combining electronic sounds and organic sounds. i tend to shy away from using a lot of orchestral instruments when I'm using synths. but your idea is a good one and i think french horn would blend nicely with certain synth pads and textures. i'll keep in it mind for next time. :) thank you for listening and sharing your thoughts.

Nice Work
Shay, what I appreciate is your approach. The intro synths sounded distant from eachother, then as the track unfolds it comes together feeling as though this comet IS approaching its destination point. It is a sad lonely journey through the depths of cold space. BUT it is not always lonely, it encounters anomolies, space debris, perhaps curiuos onlookers from a passing spaceship. I felt as though this song told the story of one comets journey through space.

I loved the use of "distance" and seperation in this track though, given the content. Sweet. we'll have to collab on a sci fi ambient piece one day ;)

You're right, it combines a number of genres, and yes, there is no catch-all "electronica" tag. I've often needed it.

Great piece. In the piano section I'd turn the synths up a bit and the piano down just an eeny weeny bit.

Unfolds at just the right pace...
Some things are long because the person putting them together just kept adding on things, and so they just seem interminable. On the other hand, there's this, which slowly unpacks its own trunk of treasures.... Everything has time to develop a glow... And everything has the space in which to be heard and appreciated.... Not a hint of clutter... It ends up sounding simple but also rich, and the instrumental tones you've chosen and the reverberation sound like they were just fated to fit together.... As a result, I'm sort of having to dig in to notice things to say about them, but the whole comes across AS a whole, as one thing, albeit a developing, evolving, unveiling sort of single thing...

It sounds like you can master any genre you put your mind to
Lovely slow builds with little rhythmic bits here and there for spice. I didn't expect the piano - I haven't heard this style in a long while.

This reminds me of a scene where the astronauts are in a craft pulling away from the earth and you can see them from outside looking longingly out the window back at the planet they are leaving behind.

This has all of the elements of a wonderful unfolding story brilliantly told.

Thanks Shay,
Doug

spacy trippy tune,classic amalgam of Wakeman, Vangelis and shades of the Lady who was Walter Carlos.Peaceful and restful yet slightly poised to spring into a wild and more up tempo piece......(try the theme to Hitch hikers guide to the Galaxy for an e.g.).Great piece ,lots of textures twists and turns....

Still gorgeous after all these days ;-)
It really is beautiful and well done, Shay. What really boggles my mind is knowing that you're maybe half my age and still working trough Logic, and I'm (impossibly) trying to imagine the truly amazing work you will produce once you know what you're doing ;-)

sonic sound
i love the somber piano coming in to join the synth.
the amazing little chord changes worked a treat.
huge build, shay - very good job of varying the intensities.
i liked the percussion, too - sweet touch.
excellent sound picture of what's inside your mind.
i totally enjoyed this,
anne

a beautiful mix through and through
Really enjoyed the whole thing--my favorite point may have been the first entrance of the piano, but it was mesmerizing in its entirety. Your Logic skills are daunting!

I have to say
the length is one of the best parts, because you don't want it to stop. You have a special gift Shay, and lucky for us, a generous soul. This is one that I have to keep. I have a feeling I'll discover new things in it with each listen. Peace. Terry

I felt like Icarus..
.. with a parachute ;o) No chance of me wings falling off under the careful guidance of your fabulously smooth and soothing piece. Thanks for sharing Shay.

Orbiting around ambient
Nice work, Shay. I enjoyed reading all the comments, too. I can hear your ambient ambition give way after the first couple of minutes, as it evolves into New Age, with a clear chord pattern and percussion. It's all well and good and very nicely done, but there is a conflict between the comforting and (more) familiar New Age and the swirling amorphous beginning and end that want to pick you up and hold you suspended, floating through unfamiliar space. Give in to your ambient side. It will be wonderful.

Perihelion
Thanks a lot for this one ... there is not so much pieces of music that could take you for such a beautiful travel through time and space ... I really enjoyed those moments - the purposes of music for me in this fully achieved!

Not your typical electronica piece I think :-) Love the percussive sounds and the guitarish touches in the background.
It seems I was a little anxious this morning and the intro (specially) and outro seemed to be a little bit too long...

What the Perihelion
I was looking to see if you had a new song on your profile page...and then found this tune.

It chilled me out, no doubt :)

Tasty arrangement and instrumentation.
