Description
A street song that attempts to capture the ambience of the wind - but I'm afraid the production may be overblown.

Interesting
youve got some original stuff going on in this, very creative! Nice!

creative origins
That's seems to be where it's at for me lately - to take an original melody and get creative with it ... letting it go where ever it takes me. Some days it goes nowhere ... other times it morphs into something like this piece, which kept getting new elements added to it. Several times I declared it done ... only to come back to it again and add something more. Thanks for listening and commenting.

cool
i like this a bunch. sorry but I'm not seeing the wind though. i'm picturing new york on the first halfway warm post-winter day. it's a sunny 45 degrees and everyone is so happy they're all out in the streets in shorts and tanktops.

what synth sound is that main melody played on, very moog sounding.

Name that synth
Forty-five degrees and sunny - I'll take that as a compliment : >

I can't tell you what the synth is ... because it's a mutation of some pre-set instrument. An approach I've been taking lately is to select a basic synth I want to use and then tweak the sound using a variety of effects and calibrations. Then, when I get something "likeable," I'll duplicate-copy it once or twice, and then tweak some more, so I have two or three synths that sound similar yet different.

Some productions end up with several synth "groups" like this to help develop textured sound.

Like the main
melody, and the sounds and effects going on in the spaces inbetween. I also enjoyed the use of percussion throughout. I wouldn't say the production was overblown - it's very up front and present, which is a good thing. Nice work. Peace.

Swept away
Well - if not overblown ... maybe you could say this song swept me away : >

Thanks for the return visits.

Is it
Ambient or Thrill Ride? Either way, it's pretty psychedelic. Very cool!

psychedelic pretty
Hmmm - this is the 40th anniversary of the psychedelic "Summer of Love." Maybe that has some influence?

A bit late, but better than never.
God this is fantastic - so Eurobeat (French probably). Alive, interesting, brash, funny, captivating. I could go on.

Fun tune and not scared to say so.

Born in a Minnesota blizzard, I'm now residing in a coastal heat of Brooklyn, New York City. I recorded my first original composition as a teenager using a reel-to-reel tape recorder back in 1967, and I'm still finding it a creative challenge... [see more]
