Have I Told You How I Feel?

Description
In honor of Valentine's Day I thought this might be an appropriate post. It is another older piece consisting of 4 tracks: 2 synths (one GB Ithaca Vox and one Crystal), one Orchestral Strings and one Steinway Piano. The Vox and Strings are doubled and and panned left and right. They all play midi generated by me, sometimes pitch-shifted by an octave.

I don't want to put ideas in your head but the opening phrase (?) might sound a little familiar: I've tried to change it and vary it somewhat and hope it doesn't put you off. The image is courtesy of Aiken SPCA.

Dreamy,
a touch of sadness but sweetness as well Richard. One slight nit - the strings sound a tad dry. Held my attention throughout and you friend's expression is priceless.
Cheers,
Charlie

No you haven't...
but this felt very good inside to me...very nice, airy and a fine production Richard--methinks I heard a little boo-boo in the beginning--what I call "the finger slip routine" but it's a very minute and almost undetectable. All around good work on this--thanks for sharing it--I needed something like this after work tonight (what kills me now is that at work, I can't play anything because they took off the flash player and I can't download it either over there, ugh!) You take care now, Michael

I would be sincerely surprised
if you DIDN'T hear a boo-boo (by the way, what number routine would the "finger slip" be?) Thank you Michael for your generous comments and I'm happy it made you feel good.

melancholy...
but is that what you get if you cross a sheepdog with a canteloupe? Nice peaceful little melody,a little wistful in nature,though that might be the pooches face setting off that vibe.

Cheers

Melancholy
must be how I feel; certainly not as clever as you. Glad you found it wistfully peaceful.

How I feel
You establish a beautiful motif and I like the way you use different sounds to expand on that. Gentle and reflective piece - much enjoyed!

Man's best friend...
Interesting choice of graphic art to accompany the song title, Richard. Anything you want to tell us? :-) Gentle, dreamy post that works the main theme around very well. Enjoyed the listen. Take care, Peter.

Well Peter
if there WAS something to tell, it wouldn't be here, in public. Actually, I think I DID say it above, in response to awigze's comment ;-)
Glad you enjoyed your listen, too.

Has a said refrain but all works well together, the keltic tones gives
it the air of sadness...... AND look at that face...gotta love it..... :-)

Sad?
The last one I posted was sad Tony, or supposed to be. This one is SUPPOSED to be a thank you for love given but I guess I missed the target. Oh well...

Cutie
Awe, the look of all puppies makes me want to grab them and hug them! My interpretation: This piece is kinda sad (for me) because it brings back good memories of my malamute when he was a puppy. Thanks for sharing!

If you were
putting these things together in another time, Beethoven might have borrowed from you. That was unique. I was thinking of a music box. Sweet. Thank you.

You're sweet
but I don't think he'd be borrowing from me. As it turns out, and nobody has mentioned it, but most of the notes are the same as "Yellow Submarine". It wasn't intentional: I was just picking out notes on the keyboard and, after I'd finished the phrase/verse/whatever, and played it back a couple of times, I realized what I'd done. So I HAD to make some variations ;-) Thanks.

Melancholy...in a good way. Peaceful ... hopeful... alright I'll stop. Quite beautiful when the strings come in. Enjoyed this very much Richard.
