Concerto of Joy (Final Remastered)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Wrote this the other day after hearing my best friend's wife had their first baby but didn't get a chance to post produce it. I have totally redone this one, built all new synths making it like a synth orchestra in different pan spaces and fixed all the wrong notes. Used a lot of VST's in this one like Aether reverb, and a slow building color vst that crescendos along with the chords. Since it is a slow build and progression I decided to add the first movement to it and have the first and second movements in the same song, which is why it's 7 minutes long. The first is more happy and explosive while the second is more energetic and moving. Also added a lot more instruments to signal progressions like Paul suggested at the end and to vary things up a bit. Enjoy :)

Lyrics
Traveling through the forest in the dark in a horse drawn carriage at full speed toward the castle of my friend after hearing the news of his wife's first child.

Well controlled
You manage your VSTs here very well. Sounds rich and deep, wonderful arpeggios. I like this sort of sound myself and explore it as well but I am a little more haphazard. But I can appreciated what you are doing here.

This has really developed into something special. Such warm synth sounds. An ode to joy :-) Nice one. Thanks, Peter.

Concerto of Joy
I agree with Peter regarding the warm synth ... very inviting ... love the bass ... I like at about 6:48 the bass drops out and that flute like synth comes in and the bass returns and takes you home .... this composition has progressed nicely though I did enjoyed the spontaneity of your first piece ... but this moves it to the next level. Excellent piece.

Filled with joy!
Somehow you've managed to sustain the opening figure for six minutes with some tasteful bass to punctuate that rhythm at strategic points. The solo in the last minute seems a little buried, but that's easy to fix with a little knob pushing. And I wonder if a long fade might be more effective than the abrupt STOP you have in this track. Just a couple thoughts to consider. What is most appealing about this track is its unbridled enthusiasm in every single measure.

Thanks Paul
I was wondering if I'd lowered the volume on that lead synth at the end too much because it was obscuring the counterpoint of the other 2 synths. I will raise its volume a bit.

Sounds like
7 minutes of acceleration (even exultation!) - and it works! But I totally agree with Paul to bring the solo up significantly towards the end as well as a decent fade out (if a resolution cannot be fixed). Still, a nice listen, thanks.

Take care,
Henke
