Interesting juxtaposition of two different sets of sounds. I like the flutes a lot.

Thanks. I have a secret revert preset that makes the flutes blend in very nicely with the synths. The pure acoustic sound wouldn't do, but I think I'm pulling it off like this.

in the back of my mind...
... i had wondered what would result from a mix of your flute work and your electronica side... well i finally got my answer. i really like this, sounds great.

Unusual amalgam of musical influences but it works okay. The synth backer is lively but subtle enough not to mask the flutes. Thanks, Peter.

The most unusual music I've heard in a while! The chord progressions I would never associate with the sound of a recorder. And to me the combination of retro synths on caffeine and the contrasting simplicity of the recorder (yes?) gives it a compelling and intense quality.

I've heard Pat Metheny do a similar thing with a completely different instrumentation of course (Roots of Coincidence) and was hooked right away, this has a similar effect on me.

I agree this is an unusual blend of musical styles, but the result is quite interesting to listen to. Interesting percussion track and chord movement. Nice piece, Vic - enjoyed

Running up that hill
Great combination of sounds - usually only heard together on new age twaddle. This has more bite and edge than that miserable genre. There is one descending flute note which hits a discord against the electronica - it jarred me out of the song a bit. Excellent stuff...

Man, this just planes all over the place, and mixes sounds you would never expect. You've done it tastefully, and created an interesting and compelling fusion of influences from different times. Really really cool!!

I like...
the flutes a lot. They are arresting. And I like the eclectic elecctro-pop music bed. But, I don't think they really mix well together. I found myself being pulled back and forth between them. Still, I like the overall feel, despite the subjective dissonance on my part.

Sticks with you
Shortly after I listened to this I went for a walk. Without consciously be aware of it, I started whistling the melody to myself and was soon doing variations on it .. before I realized where the music came from. So I guess that means it has staying power!

Repeated harmony...
...helps keep this glued together in spite of the quick tempo. Interesting number, Victor, and much different from many of the things you have been posting. (I am a little distracted by the occasional out of tune recorders, but maybe that comes with the territory.) Ending = perfect! I was pretty worn out with the high energy intensity of the backing accompaniment and the whole thing sort of just kept going after that last note because it was so sudden and unexpected. Many things to enjoy here...and I did.

Out of tune
If these were recorders they'd be a bit more in tune. This is a native american flute, and I am asking more of it then it was made for.....
