I've never been to London, but this song totally painted a picture of what you describe . . . . this song is almost evocative of Renaissance music, in its straightforwardness and simple beauty. I really love the background arpeggios starting at 2:11. And again at 3:22--cool!

that flute is way engaging... it sort of glides over the background

the sweeping sounds brings to mind arcing electrical sparks

yet - this is a very mellow mood - very nice

the electric guitar doubling the flute towards the end works really well

thanks!

Thanks everyone for the positive feedback. And SmokeyVW - that guitar is, well, it's a flute too, with distortion efx. For me it is a shame I can't do chords too, although I suppose I could with multiple takes - maybe I should give that a try :)

Not often
we hear a flute in this context and it works really well.

Interesting sounds coming in and out.

Cheers

I must admit
that the only hum I've ever noticed around Westminster is from the tourists.
This is very unusual and a pleasure to listen to.
Cheers

Very cool
and wins over time. Great melody which blends surprisingly well with the more high-tech background.

Thanks,
