Love
the voxy synth voice! This is really nice. Maybe the bass/kick is a little muddy, as I'm hearing it here, but it's a very nice tune and arrangement. Some vocals would sit well in this I think.

Cool.

No sign
of narcissism here then? What I like about your music is the way that you can flip flop between real wood and electronica. Too cool Dude.Nice laid back tune,with a slight hint of menace in the tone ....sort of scowly snarly.....Jarvoid

Nice mix of melody and groove
Constantly evolving arrangement. Each new sound adds its own character to a well conceived arrangement. Very clean mix. High production value.

Back to the 80's
...and why not! This is strangely hypnotic and I put it on repeat and it got right into my head....probably be there all day now!

Beautiful, Vic
No, not the photo of you (though if that is you, you look awfully good for someone who pumped bellows for Bach ;-) the music. Very nice, thanks.

Hey Vic
I love the warm sound of your syn's, and the wonderful chord progression. I'm not a fan the TR505 type drums, however they fit well . . .

Well done...
I dig it. Puts me in a reflective mood.

Progression
The chord progression has cool twists at the right time to keep it interesting, while at the same time maintaining the non intrusive ambient music mood.
I was able to listen and think at the same time. Inducer to enter into a flowing state of mind.

"A little
something", he says...Hah! I was interested to see the logic screen..like an improved version of GB. It is quiet electropop piece and very laid back. Soul soothing. You are so talented. :)

Man logic looks complicated
That is scary, just plain scary. So many windows and buttons. Sorry, got no idea what the trick is. I assume you are using delay since there are so few midi notes showing but I could be way off on that. Anyway, I like the vibe on this track. I bet you could even put some recorder over this and it would sound great.

Vic!
This is a great tune! It reminds me (a little bit) of Miami Vice (the original) soundtrack. It has a nice 80's vibe and a hypnotic rhythm. Nice! :D

Me, myself, and mirror image
Nice complementary sound choices, and it's cool the way they drop in and out of the mix. This unpredictability keeps things interesting.

aedi ! idea
I couldn't quite tell, did you reverse the MIDI notes on the other side of the looking glass too (and shift keys?)... it almost sounded like the melodies flowed backward on the 2nd half. That would be like what I did with "Halloween Punch" (on the Drakonis page), except I also reversed the audio to flip it back in spots. Yours works well forward and backward, great voice choices... mellow and jazzy.

ttfn,
Drakonis

Loosely
The second half is not quite a mirror. Some patterns, like the bass pattern I'm showing, are retrograde, others are inverted. The drum is more or less constant.

PS
you can clearly hear the melody reversing on the high note at 1:30.

Kind of easy listening
Very pleasant excursion Vic.

Didn't spot the trick though.

Cheers
