Description
I had no real concept for this project...I started playing around and this is what I ended up with by the end of that evening.

Good stuff!
Expertly done, just keeps on the right side of schmaltzy, there's a hint of
Moments in Love (Art of Noise) about it. Good orchestration, finely
balanced nice use of piano flourishes.

nice energy
You have a talent for choosing sounds and combining them in interesting ways. The soundscape you have created here is rich and full, covering a wide range over my headphones.

I particularly like your use of piano. Those little diminished florishes up and down are effective. There are some other unexpected quirky little harmonies which titillate the ear, and create added interest to this track.

Welcome to MacJams! (You seem to be new). And also, thank you for listening and commenting to my latest piece. I appreciate that!

Will you add to your bio at some point? I'm sure that I can speak for all of us here, that we would like to know more about you and your music.

I look forward to your next piece!

what a debut...
Excellent. Beautiful orchestration and an amazingly crafted piece with
twists and turns in unexpected ways.

I aslo loved (what I think was!) the change in scale towards the last third.

An emotionally uplifting and stirring piece.

Thank you.

Thank you so much! I am especially happy that you even consider it "uplifting and stirring", since this is what I am hoping to accomplish, when creating anything!

enjoyably soothing
but enough anxiety to keep things interesting. I liked the unusual almost
Moorish feel to this, nice use of orchestration, little bits of synths and
piano and strings, a little tension, then some release, some discord, then
some thick resolving harmonies, compelling and satisfying. I would love
to see you edit your hardware/software list and description to tell us
more about how you wrote this. This wasn't GB loops, so how did you
score this? Did you use jampacks, soundfonts, etc... inquiring dragons
want to know! :) And welcome to Macjams!
ttfn,
Drakonis

enjoyably soothing
Thanks for your comment! I am using Garageband, most of the Jam Packs and a small usb keyboard on a dual 1.25GHz G4. As far as the process is concerned, I usually start with a very vague idea of a mood or sound I want to express and then everything just flows, I guess. Not much thinking. I try to keep my conciousness open to good energy and try not to indulge in any binding emotions. When chords or melody get too dense, I usually take the freedom to break the flow and introduce a new idea, like I did with this one.
Thanks again for your interest!

Sets a mood beautifully
Lots of very sophisticated touches, you definitely know what you're doing.
I was a little worried at first that it was heading towards a Frank Mills style
of schmaltz, but you managed to avoid that, to your credit. My wife likes
it too! I agree with other comments about the piano flourishes; they add
a lot. Good job, and welcome! Look forward to hearing more.

Sets a mood beautifully
Thank you for this comment! I am really grateful that a composer of your caliber would take his time and listen to music which is so much simpler or different by comparison to your arrangements and still be able to appreciate it! I guess constructive feedback like this, which inspires one to improve is the main reason I joined this platform, so thank you again! I am looking forward to browsing your website and listening to more of your compositions!

I actually said "awww, don't stop!" when it was over.

I loved the subtle touch of the piano.
Great orchestration.

Wow
That's really nice of you! I had actually visited your page the other and started listening to some of your music. Like it a lot (will comment later)!! Too bad Álftanes seems quite far from Reykjavik, one of my friends just opened a great music store there. Thanks again for your comment!

What an evening!
Nice arrangement - very emotive. Interesting use of the different GB
sounds. That was one productive evening.

Beautifully mixed and layered
Love your sound. A wave of lovely rhythms with effortless rifts floating
throughout the piece. Beautifully mixed and layered. Every time I need to
calm down I%u2019m going to put "Sunshine Lounge" on and breath deeply.

thank u
I finally can hear your music at work! So glad I found this sight. I love your sounds especially string synths!!
Ever use analog? I had an ARP 2600 and a VCS3. Digital is SOOOOOOO much simpler!!

relaxing tenseness
Cool tune Parichayaka. It reminds me of night time at the airport during the evening rush when the airplanes loose their form and just become gobs of light pensively finding their way down to the shimmering lights of the runway, one after another. This song has that "relaxing tenseness" of watching what's going on out there while I'm working.

Nice to get your feedback on what you hear in this track. I can definitely imagine vividly what you describe here. Thanks for listening and taking your time to comment.

You tease us with the beauty and then the dark and uncertainty sweep by. I like that tension. And the piano! The playing is excellent, but the sound is so real. What library is that?
Just fabulous,
Stephen

Thanks!
At that time I only used the free GB library. May have had the concert piano from the JamPack Symphony Orchestra. They did a surprisingly good job on those JamPacks...like Ambient Guitar Chill or Sunshine Lounge - all done with free software and samples. Apple does get it right sometimes:)

-- My Favorites -- I've been making noise since I was a little kid; piano, drums and other instruments. Later on I focused on everything else but music, until I started learning meditation with Sri Chinmoy, who has also given me a whole new idea... [see more]
