Description
The Tears of St Lawrence is the name sometimes given to the Perseids Meteor Shower in August each year.

This is a little different from my usual Ambient stuff but what the heck. It's new, today.

Nice
to see you back and making music again Paul. Put your cameras down for a bit! Why is this different? Maybe you have some rhythmic elements therein, rumbling away in the background. Anyway, as epic as ever. I've listened through a couple of times now. Shame there are no comments. This deserves better imo.

Hi Dave....
Yeah. The cameras have taken a back seat to Android phone development so music is a change from using the computers I have for something else.

It's rhythmically old-school Ambient, with the bits that you've noticed and old-school from the sounds too. A little bit more electronica sounding. The next mix is even more beat-like.

I don't really worry any more about hits or comments. Most folks around here know my bag and they listen as/when they will (or not). I enjoy seeing the plays though. That tells more of the story here to me. The download count and comments is icing on the cake but I prefer biscuits/cookies anyway.

Take care.

Paul

Hi Kenta.....
People will listen to the mix eventually anyway, especially if they search down the Ambient tunes. They'll find it, along with others of mine. I've a good back catalogue of Ambient stuff.

Take care.

Hi Harald....
I'm glad you enjoyed the trip. The title came after the piece was mixed. The momement of the piece gave me the picture of the meteors and the Tears of St Lawrence (Wikipedia) seemed apt.

Take care.

Great Ambiant sounding piece!
This is a very cool and unique piece for me. My speakers are not that great, but I could still the hear the low underlying rumble of some ominous force. Almost sounds like war type drums preparing for battle. Topped with your Reinholtian patented style builds a wonderful soundscape. Kudos!

Hi Patty....
There are three layers in this (and most of my other) piece/s. I try to have this come through as the listener hears what is going on. It seems to have worked for you.

The ominousness? of the work is prevalent in most of the unpublished mixes that I've done this year (30 or so), so much so that I haven't bothered to upload them. It's taken me a while to remove the majority of this 'morbid' backdrop from my mixes. Hopefully the wider, ambient backdrop will reappear and I can put some decent stuff together. I am rarely short of ideas but could do with a little more patience. I used to be able to put 5 or 6 bare bones pieces together for finalising, every day. Now it's 1 or 2 pieces a week, and none of them are worth working to a finished mix, let alone uploading.

Take care.

Palpable atmosphere
Hi Paul. You have definitely captured a deep space vibe, as I imagine it when put to music, with this piece. The atmosphere you develop is palpable. Hope your parents are OK. Thanks for the post. Regards, Peter.

Hi Peter.....
Nice of you to think of my parents. Yes. Twenty four days later and they are well on the mend.

Thanks for stopping by to listen and leave your thoughts.

Take care.

Scary Meteor...
That very low rumble is full of ominous intent. That's how I read it. I suppose were one to be closer to a real meteor shower, the pretty grandeur we typically experience would, no doubt, be influenced by forces we can hardly fathom. So, after all THAT blather, I still find this another fascinating soundscape that is is well-timed and generously epic, just like the cosmos where it resides.

Hi Paul.....
I'm never very sure about the bass end of my mixes. I listen only on headphones, as I live in a flat and have neighbours both above and below me. It's good when someone hears the effect I'm going for in spite of me not quite hearing the best version myself.

Take care.

There is almost a
low ominous rumble of distant war drums that moves this forward under the shimmering synth phrases. Very cool feeling to this - a jumble of emotions and images which I think makes it all the more interesting and moving. Thanks for posting this one Paul.

Cheers,
Doug
