Description
Photosynthesis and Exploration
This is the 3rd in the series/Time 7:53 minute/Tracks: 20

After following the dandelions path as a young girl, watching them germinate and grow, she’s intrigued by the process and moves forward in her journey to learn more.

After learning about the process she travels to the forbidden parts of the world to explore the mysterious caves of Mishiranu. Our young biologist discovers a whole new world, a world that exists without light. She must try to understand this process. It is very important, because she knows her world is dying. A world shrouded by darkness, but she must try to stop this from happening. It is a race against time.

There are two parts to the story:
1. Education process and learning
2. Her travels to the mysterious caves of Mishiranu

Note: Mixing was a nightmare, I finally gave up. There are sections where the low end might be overpowering. Still in the learning process.

This takes you places Arins voice is beautiful and adds great dimension and contrast Some very trippy parts , Like all the contrast between those bell sounds and synths , it does have this race against time feel to it !
very cool!

Hiya
Thanks so much for enduring the listen. This is my longest composition so far. My niece, did a great job and it was fun for her to experience something like this. The trippy parts is interesting because when you have a limited amount of sounds to work with, you have to try to get creative. Thanks a bunch!

Hi Patty.......
I love this piece. The other-world, alien world, dream world aspect of this is what I really enjoy being immersed in, listening with my eyes closed and just 'imagining' what's happening.

There's a certain Vangelis-aspect but hey, that's OK. Those almost extraneous sounds make the piece stand out, in my opinion.

Top notch.

Take care.

Thank you Paul
Very nice comment. I only wished I had more sounds to work with. The extraneous sounds you're hearing was my attempt to create a living world within the confines of the cave. I have to admit I used the same sounds from other pieces to add continuity but that didn't work as I planned. I may have to ask you for advice on trying new sounds from various other sources. Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

Take care!

You should be making music for film. This is excellent! I find it very visual when you sit back with your phones on and close your eyes ... dark,mysterious performance and great voicing by Arin.
I like the image. Are you a fan of Japanamation?
Thanks for the ear and eye candy.

Hiya Stan
Yes I love a good story especially if its Anime. I find it easier to compose in this genre for the reason you can go just anywhere and be as creative as you can get with little structure. So I'll strive to create more compelling pieces if I can :)

Thanks for the listen, and btw your latest piece is beautiful!

Some stellar ambience here, and great job on the melodic parts. I like the way you're sculpting these open spaces and then filling them so succinctly. Judicious reverbs, killer synth work. Love the feedy overdriven fuzztones coming in around 5.45 onward. Classy ending, "I found it"

Doug Somers said 1926 days ago (January 16th, 2012)
I love a good story
The early piano intro with cellos pulls me in immediately, then the ambience of the caves is fabulous: spacious, organic, with a perfectly rolled out development of sounds. It's magic in headphones, and the time seems to fly by the soundscape is so immersive.

Another one strikes the bullseye Patty.

Take care,
Doug

Hi Doug
Thanks for the listen and lovely comment. I like that you enjoyed her journey. Wasn't quiet sure if i was going to finish this, but determination endured and I am glad with that. The mixing was a bit daunting at first, but with trial and error I was able to mix out the bad elements for a more smooth version.

Thanks again. Always appreciate your words.

She is in fact the light needed.
Great Production Quality. Both dramatic and intriguing. Musically fine with piano guiding the storyline. Sounds I personally find quite amazing. Cinematic intelligence applied artistically well. Wonderful journey into the light of sound. Artwork fabulous.

Thanks for the comment and the time for listening. I am glad your morning started out peacefully. I feel nice, that my piece may have had a little part in it.

Actually, on the draft of this tale, it is more of an improvisational story that evolves with every piece created. I thank you for taking an interest in it =)

Take care,

Sweet
I really enjoy this series and was happy to see the new installment posted. Listened earlier on the iPhone but didn't have time to comment. Very nice work, especially in part 2 perhaps, even if I liked the first too. On speakers at least, I felt maybe some more tweaking could have been done there, but really only minor stuff. Thanks for the download!

Take care,
Henke

Delightful
What a great story! It's an "eyes closed" sort of piece in that it stimulates the listeners imagination. The results of the creative process, whether music, books or film, rely on the listener/reader/viewer as well as the creator, and this piece is rich with imaginative possibilities. Lovely sounds with plenty of variety. Your niece's voice has a youthfulness that suggests exploration. Awesome!
