Description
The first song to come form logic pro, nice bit of kit. I sent this to the amazing KTB who lifted it with his incredible piano work, then off to Ramona for her beautiful voice parts. Thank you so much both of you for your kindness and contributions.
Issues with surround sound on this, they are not meant to be on here, i think i chose an effect that was connected to the surround sound. Guitars, in the heavy part are a bit crap.
The only loops were the drums. Been watching too many tutorials on how to make sound better, judge for yourselves. Any offers, advice, contributions, crits etc welcome. Thanks.

ramona rules
hats off Steve. You placed her voice just right. Whispering soulitude in my headphones. I love the picture as well. I'm beginning to think you hear in colors as well as see them. Nicely done, my friend

Another good one
Love the surreal vibe. Percussion could be a little more up front (gee why did I say that?) Love the flange effect on the guitar parts. Great job to all involved. Love the mesmerizing vocals! I have to admit you have a great ear for putting things in just the right places.

Stay
Top-notch-mix!!
An excellent work, powerful, with warm sound, atmosphere and power.
I loved it a lot, when I heard it on icomp first, and loved it again when I listened here again.
An amazing collaboration!! Choice track, very well elaborated!

Another great collaboration.
After shamen, I didn't expect this. KTB is more up front here, and his work is great. I'm sold on Ramona. She's perfect for the part. The opening heavy guitar riff at 0:45 is a killer. I partly agree with Max that, at least at that point, the drums could have been brought up a bit. The drop into the softly spoken vocals is beautiful, and the drums are right for that (IMO). Love that chord change at 3:13, and again at 3:30. The guitar work is great, adding texture everywhere. It's easy for me to get lost in the trees, and just focus on individual bits, but after a few listens, I want to compliment you on a fantastic piece of composition. I'm hoping there's more where this came from.

Excellent collab
I do hear some ticky breaking up in the loud guitar track - is that what you're referring to? Small problem - but it does draw a little attention away from how ell produced and mixed the rest of this is. Cool drums and wonderful vocals. Nice to hear acoustic keys in a rack like this. Well played guitars too.

into the mystic
The artwork goes well with the music. It's like walking into a mist where you're not quite sure of what will appear around the corner... The opening keys sets the mood, and from there I'm captured in the song. Cool nasty guitar sounds. Tasty choice of tones.

Nothing I can say
Except good. I find I'm just losing the ability to express what needs to be expressed. I feel inadequate. I hope you get the idea: Good. Yes. Good. But you need more than that. The ambient general presence is amplified by the time spent electrifying the scene and pumping some motion into the middle of the drifting space of it. Then when the driving relents, the ambiance takes on a new reflection, and then fades, like a dream. When it's over I wonder if I just woke up. But whatever it was, it was good to have been in it. Thanks.
