very cool
I really like the different movements, and the connection with the cycle of water is very cool. Love the water sound effects, and a really nice mix, too. Nicely done. Peace.

I don't get it. How does this explain the Hydrologic Cycle? lol

Splendid in every way.

This has been on
my mind, too, ever since I read the story about the space station astronauts and their new 'water recycling' tool.....

Beautiful execution of a lovely idea.

Best,

Excuse me - I have to pee
No seriously - this is a great rack Bill - I love the bass sound you found - kinda boggy and the ripply guitar is perfect. Nice to hear you posting again and bringing your unique perspective to musical composition. Some beautiful harmonies towards the end.

well Bill
you have a daunting music page that has always intimidated me... but if I had started back when... I'd at least be more familiar now...

nothing is canned here... unexpected changes and fresh to my ears... I love how subtly this morphs into a euphoric lift as it winds down... your changes are so nuanced yet the emotional feel is completely different in the last moments... even though the basic progression doesn't change in that section it becomes so hopeful as it recedes....

I'm guessing that your forte is cinematic & soundtrack because of the visual nature...

I will have to go back and check your bio to se what software you wield.. this couldn't be GB....

aural beauty

no clue what my forte is... just try randomly picking a tune once in a while - i've dabbled with lots of different things over time

the build up towards the end uses a simple rhythmic trick: the clicky snare sound at first hits on threes: one-two-THREE-four. but then it switches to one-TWO-three-FOUR which is effectively twice as fast. somehow that changes how you hear everything else and it somehow makes it feel uplifting (bringing in the horns at that point helps too).

i love build ups - many of my tunes do that sort of thing.

many thanks for listening

this is really special. so glad to see you inspired again. so much nice stuff going on here. love that guitar part, that climb is delicious. i wish i had written this. there's a band called Mellow, you should check them out. They did a soundtrack for CQ that is similar to this. all of their stuff is like a modern twist on 60's soundtracks. anyways, i am blown away by this. really a wonderful piece, best i've heard here in a while.

thanks for the kind comments

at the risk of sounding totally ignorant what is CQ?

I love the way...
...you added the echo on the theme at 2:00. Great builds to a cool picture.

Excellent, Smokey...bravo!

Ego is right - "Phillip Glass with GUTS" - I only can vaguely imagine how a musical brain such as yours works. It's a wonder to behold - I feel so lucky I get to hear your mad scientist self create these incredible works of art!

This a really cool track
you seem like someone who plays at the outer edges and creates really interesting and entertaining music in the process. I also notice that you're all over the album idea on your page. Maybe you'd consider podding one of your albums and posting with us when we're fully up and running. You could submit now and be the first.
