Description
This was a sketch that Buckhorn sent me of him humming and strumming; i thought it was really nice so I made a sound collage out of it. I like to picture him stepping away from the stresses of the day and just disappearing into a world of his own making.

I used some sounds from freesound so here are the credits where credit is due (they really make the song more than my manipulated instruments):

thanks Lengold
i'm so glad you like it. I tried to make it sound like a field recording (even though the water is a stream and the birds are seagulls - oh well). thanks for listening.

Good stuff
The freesound project is great - isn't it. Since you mentioned it the other day - I put Audacity on my PC at work and when I get bored I go on geo tagged sound safaris. This is really nicely done. Great track you had to work with from Buckhorn.

just have to love open source anything. it's cool to be able to make music even when you have no instruments at your disposal. thanks for listening Bud.

I like
What you did here. It captures the the mood just right. The baby crying ( or was it a seagull) was especially apropriate since I did this late at night adjacent where a baby slept. I was tempting fate. Later dude.

Love the tranquility
It forces me to sit down and read a book. Instead of frantically do other stuff that needs to be done....

Very interesting Micheal!
Brought a lot of thoughts to my head. A peaceful easy feeling. Kudos to the two of you or should I add the other Micheal also? Solid production and a very relaxing auditory journey my friend! Thanks.
