Description
Like the tentacles of an octopus, circumstances in life tend to sometimes wrap it’s ugly arms around us, leaving us with a feeling that it will never let go - pulling and grabbing from so many different directions that we can’t even see straight. And in the process, nearly blinding us to what’s been right in front of us the whole time. It can be beautiful and vicious all the same.

Anyway, enough about meaning – I’ve been sitting on this one for a little while and would be most appreciative of any critiques and feedback. Thanks so much!! All loops, btw - twisted up, arranged, and rearranged...into this.

Structured confusion
Why, thank you sir. It makes sense, yes. More bass all around? You can never have too much bass in your life, right? Ok, well maybe you can. hehe. But seriously, I'll try adding more in for a deeper reflection. Thank you so much Feter.

the music pulls in many directions. it is subtle, but relentless. it seems soft, however it is strong. it slowly pulls me in. it is skillfully entangled music.

it is good to hear more tracyvosh. there is hope that you successfully subdue each head of the hydra. 0x0

Oh my
this has a catchy vibe, liking that changing of percussion. A nice trip hop feeling all the way. Cool song, it has been a while since you posted a tune, worth the wait.

Ahhhhh...
Thank you Steve! It has been a while, hasn't it? Thank you so much for your wonderful comment and most of all, thank you for noticing!

Very nice
Some lovely subtle grooves in here - and some strange chord changes in the middle section, which work very well. This is odd and haunting music - but laced with maturity. Glad to hear you are still making it :-))

Odd and haunting
I seem to be drawn to these types of sounds lately. Maybe it's the ghouls that visit me in my sleep at night. lol! Thank you for your awesome feedback Phil!

Quite a complex
arrangement of loops for this one. The only suggestion I would have is to put a solo instrument over the top of this song. That would really give a stamp of distinctiveness. Not sure if you play an instrument, even if you dont, there are lots of talented musicians on here that could lay something on this. Good job. BTW, i agree with Feter that more bass could add some heft to this production.

Hi!
Thank you Crisew, so much. Unfortunately, I do not play an instrument, as of yet. I'm trying to imagine what would sound good on top of this - it would be extremely interesting to hear what someone might do with it. Now you have me curious! Thanks again for your comments and being a fan of Octopus...

Normally not a fan of this genre, but this is really fun. Kind of reminds me of how someone in the 50's would have imagined the technological confusion of the new millennia.

Nice to hear my Octopus is almost pulling you over to the "other" side. lol. Thank you so much for your awesome comment and...how interesting it is to hear your interpretation. Pretty cool to see it in this light. Thanks BSP!!

Thanks Karen!
That really means a lot to me - thank you so much. I'm glad you liked it.

Very cool
Nice groove, interesting textures. I like it like it is. You hit the nail on the head with "Cinematic Soundtrack". This is very good mood music for a suspense/thiller. As far as the mix is concerned. I personally like where it is. It is one of those pieces that leaves enough space that it gets your imagination going in twelve different directions so you are likely to get lots of different opinions.

Nice job.

So true...
about what different people hear and the different opinions received. Thank you Tonestones! I appreciate you droppin' in - I'm really diggin' your stuff as well - very creative!

This has a great vibe. It has that mysterious feel with a hint of upbeatness. I like it. Great mix and groove. Bowie would be great on this.

Ahhhhh, thanks!
Thank you for your support ABF. Wow, Bowie would be awesome! I didn't even think of that - I would love to hear what he would come up with...

Hmmmm...I guess you'll just have to listen to get the full scoop. I don't really know how to play any instruments so my music compilations mainly consist of loops, chopped, smothered and diced in an effort to create my own sound gravy (as much as I c... [see more]
