Description
This isn't really a full song (yet), but It felt complete for now. I may pick it back up later.

CJ gave me an "orchestra" for Christmas which is absolutly amazing. Here are my attempts to make music with it.

I usually don't program drums, but I programed these because I was looking for that big booming feel.

This has lots of influence from BT's Stealth soundtrack with a feel of ongoing expanse yet keeping technical conformity.

I had the chance to play this in a 15,000 watt theater today @ a local arts school, sounded quite....loud.

Thanks to CJ for noticing some distortion I got rid of. I always forget to check the final levels.

sweeter than...
Hm, just too sweet! :D Again, I love the little bit of flute ... and I really
look forward to when you'll create a 2nd part. ;)

I'm impressed by the drums. They're perfect.

Such a refreshing little song. Downloaded and looping...

You outdid yourself...
...But this is somewhat short of a complete song. This is a teaser or demo
to something longer I hope. There is no doubt this is one of the best I've
heard from you or any other electronica musician here, but it leaves me
wanting for more. The drums are fantabulous and this awesome melody
makes a grand intro to something really huge. If you complete this, it has
potential to be the best of your collection so far.

I just gave you a rare ten for production!

Thank you Leon - and I'm sorry about all this demoing you've been getting :)
You'll get a full song eventually.

Ah
relaxing. This was a nice listen; I too would like to hear a longer version. It has an attention getting intro and I really like the way it opens up at the end.

Exotic
Very epic, despite the shortness of it.
The drumming really works - big booming feel, indeed.

Make it longer and you've got yourself quite the soundtrack track :)

Nice work!

Cool
Isn't the stuff by Native Instruments absolutely amazing?
As for your song, it's very nice. It sounds like it belongs in some historical epic miniseries or perhaps a game like Civilization IV.

Nice and strong
This is one sweet piece of work - very exciting with a big sweeping feel. This is easily a motion picture cue. All I can say is, sweet 'effin' job, man!

Drummin'
I liked the interplay between the chords and the rhythm section, but thought that you could have really taken off and done some crazy stuff with the drums...oh, well, I'm biased. I'm a percussionist.
