Hi Alimar.....
I have enjoyed the development of this piece from the beginning. The sounds you use are very credible. The mix and production is wonderful and I for one appreciate the time/care you spend on your mixes.

Take care.

This is a joyous celebration of 10 years of music making, Alimar. Your choice of textures and tones is so creative and the percussion really gives it a special personality. Much enjoyed. Thanks, Peter.

An anniversary gift
I had an ELP moment at the 20 second mark and had to smile recalling your jacket art a while back.

This contains a variety of moods in a prog-ish wrapper. You almost get into a swing just before 2:00 but keep the time regular. I'm back to ELP at 3:10 - this is really great.

Put together with a sense of delicacy and fine taste. I appreciate the chance to download it too - many thanks and congratulations on both the tune and your 10 year anniversary here.

Keep well!

Ten Years After
And the notes keep piling up!

I like how your music flows with a continuous trade-off between clarity and density. Sometimes you pack more notes in than anybody .. yet other times it freely flows like a fresh breeze.

Your work is always fascinating.

Very mature piece, and fab artwork!
This piece at the same time both very complex and very simple.   I love the way that you take a very simple small-set of themes and develop it in so many different and interesting ways, building up to very intense moments of tension and then relaxing, again and again.   The playing and the production sound perfect, to my uneducated ears.

And the cover-art, of course, is absolutely killer.   This is what I so miss from the “12-inch LP album-cover” days.   Even the name of the song is clever.   All in all, this is very sophisticated stuff of a type that I both love and seek.
