A beautiful, laid back listen
This whole piece just radiates stillness and serenity (except for a couple of places where a coyote pounces on a mouse in the darkness). The orchestration is lovely, especially your flute(s) and perfectly suited to the mood, but I have to say I really love the claves. I listened twice then took a copy; thanks Vic.

A wonderful landscape painting in music.

Deserves a stunning video.

Cheers

Tracks
Not too bad. Apart from constants like flute, bass, drum, there's only a good dozen synths. Four guitars, 3 mutilated mellotrons, 3 electric pianos. Some other stuff.

Most fun was to be had in thoroughly transforming sounds. That aggressive epiano and the slide guitar have substantial amounts of effects on them.

Thanks for the compliments.

Wow, what an enjoyable and interesting piece. Very pro! I'm interested to know what you used for the droning bass track...very cool.

Bass
Hm. The bass part is not a drone, and there is no drone instrument. I wonder if you are catching some resonant frequency? The bass part is Spectrasonics Trillian, which is an amazingly good collection of bass instruments.

Thanks for the compliments.

Drone
I guess I used a poor choice of words...I didn't really know how to classify that tone. Excellent whatever it is.

I like the music but I didn't really pick up on a dark, deserted, still vibe. There is too much happening in the mix for me to get all serene and contemplative like. It is more positive and affirming than that to me. Thanks, Peter.

"side"
I have many sides, and sometimes they come together. I haven't been posting much Native American Flute music lately, but I have in fact a whole CD full of it.

Beautiful track Vic
I love hearing a well used TR808 - claves and all. Your playing is exceptional as usual. Great blend of organic and electronic.
