Description
it is black now. it is "kuroi" in japanese. darkness can be seen, however, only if it is illuminated by joy. if there is no happiness, then darkness is invisible. this music illuminates the darkness of loss with small happiness of new creation. a smile traces the outline of despair. goodbye dear father. accept this deep bow of gratitude.

this music attempts a new circuit path for ic42. it creates a dark twin of ray lynch. it restores balance to the world, and traces the outline of a final smile.

A very pretty
melody entices the deep fog horn to join with it. At the end all creatures, dark and light...dance, in innmerable subroutines. :) Arigato.

often a melody comes to stay. it will not leave. this melody stayed. it was captured in this music. it is now shared for many. a dance of light and dark. it is a poetic thought. thank you. 0x0

kuroi
there can be no light without the dark and no sound without the silence. this is beautifully balanced and spaced. a wonderful weaving in and out of the darkness and silence.

light and dark, work and rest
it is much work to create music. it is time to rest. however, your words after listening create energy. thank you for your time to listen and send your thoughts. it is not music until you listen. thank you for making this into music. 0x0

Delightful, playful tune
which makes use of contrasting yin/yang elements on several levels (light/dark, high/low, fast/slow, etc). Very nice work. Thank you.
Cheers

yin comment, yang comment
it is several contrasts, always an experiment. many things are learned with each piece. sometimes the experiments are not toxic. a smile is created to know you enjoy this. another smile was created after a listen of your new piece. a comment is there. thank you. 0x0

Kuroi.
Excellent music, and educational, too. Very nice, ic. My son walked by as I was listening, and said, "Hey, that sounds nice." You have another fan. I also enjoy reading your responses. Very poetic.

young praise
it creates double happiness to receive such compliments from two in the family. as the music is shared, it melts the darkness. it is a new day. your thoughts create energy to make more music. however, the first step in the journey is to go to music of ex_silentio. thank you. 0x0

melody dispels darkness
It waits for just the right moment, then comes out to dance. Darkness tries to smother the light, but it cannot. Clouds may hide the sunlight for a time, but the clouds must blow away, and the dance goes on.

light and dark
it is good to have them both. however, it is always best to live in the light, and sleep through the darkness. it is nice for you to visit, and not sleep through the music. thank you. 0x0

yes, the light and dark interplay here, but there's a definite feeling of the light ultimately shining through. very cool idea, and i especially love those very low tuba-like sounds. you're good with synthesized music IC42!

deep music
much thought went into the low synthesizers. parameters were altered many times. sometimes it is a technical process to create music. sometimes it is tedious. however, if the result is good for you, then the work is not important, the joy becomes important. thank you for turning work into joy today. 0x0

I
like the song´s ethereal qualities.The first part reminds me of Japan (both the coutry and the 80´s synthpop band).The whole song, in fact, reminds me of that.It´s perfecly assembled,
pulses and moves like a a heart wrapped in black plastic.

WHen it switches it moves the listener to another floor, then slowly it fades and you realize your on the same floor and all along the slight glimmer of happiness is in a window that you cant see out of. Thanks!

A heart.
For three and a half minutes you've conducted a revelatory surgery, allowing me to watch mine beat. This is a privilege few people get. And how simply you operated, with so few instruments, so few chords... There is a smile crossing my face. I would learn more about you.

Better late than never. I think its fantastic that your friend used this piece in a game. It suites the genre though as it morphs while still holding to its outline, which is very useful backing for a game. Also it has a sense of tension, which I find essential in music for games where any kind of struggle is taking place (I guess all games pretty much). Well done!

symmetry
Loved how the pad chords swing up and down as a pendulum would, and how the higher synth melody also seems to swing back and forth, ascending then descending... creates a really nice effect and I get a somewhat profound feeling of finding balance in the presence of two extremes... like they're really part of the same whole and are only at odds on a superficial level... kind of a yin and yang type thing. Excellent :)

finding balance in the darkness
This was written when my father passed away. It was a time of sadness for the loss, but joy for the lifetime of memories. I wished to balance whimsy, sadness, simplicity and complexity into one piece, to characterize the aspects of my father. If you hear the washes of extremes that balance each other, I have succeeded. Thank you for your wonderful thoughts on this piece.
