A Study

Description
A few seconds from a soundtrack for "Challenging Impossibility" including the step by step layering of the instruments and the mastered version at the end.

An unusual post, but I do this in my head all the time - taking apart the structure of an arrangement - and on the off-chance I'm not the only one who enjoys doing that... :)

Lots of stuff going on. I have not often taken apart something to hear the structure and feel the layout. It is a cool idea!

Even as I woke up
and found this on my iPhone the quality of the sound came through on those tiny speakers. On my "big" system it really glows with Parichayaka greatness. Very cool build towards the final result at the end. I especially like that purring sound around 2.30. Seems to be an interesting film as well.

Thanks and take care,
Henke

Fantastic sounds and a sense of revelation, both in emotion and the track itself! I can't help but wonder how a piece like this is composed, in which order you do the different layers, the choice of a particular instrument and so on. Fascinating.

A great piece which builds up effortlessly. The adding of layers just shows how unbelievable harmonies you can create with those minimalistic touches of each instrument finding its own place and sense. It is amazing to see how your laboratory works! Thanks

The big and small of it
You put this in the right category - it's very cinematic in it's grand scope of sound and emotion. Yet it has plenty of nuanced touches scattered throughout, making it also feel inmate. Big and bold, small and articulate, all crammed into under three minutes - that makes for a great listening experience.

excellent
This is easily one of the best tracks I have heard on Macjams. I'd love to do a collaboration some day :)
I'm pursuing an MFA in scoring and sound design, so this is really a treat to hear.

The inner works
Thanks for giving us a peek behind the curtains as to how you construct your work. You're not the only one who enjoys this from the comments above, and I'll chime in on that too.

This piece has a lot of power with with fascinating variation in tone, especially with some of the synths you add at the beginning and end. I'll bet the rest of the piece is just as fabulous.

Cheers,
Doug

Thanks for sharing this. The energy and visceral motion you capture is thrilling. Thanks for the glimpse into each layer. Is there a link to the entire thing? Really nice.

Quite a brilliant
composition, especially in how each layer adds to the preceding and lays the foundation for the things that lie ahead. This is truly a fascinating and original orchestral work. Deconstructing it is so "instructive". Thanks for sharing your process with such exquisite detail.

Deja Vu
Was going through all me un-completed tracks today, most in various stages of completion. Alot are just like listening to this song, except for the mastering stage. Hearing the completion of this track, had made me push on and get a track finished this week :)
