Cascade

Description
I came back onto the site a few days ago and it inspired me to write a tune. It's a strange, sort of static piece - probably reflects my state of mind!!

the master of far eastern dystopia.
really cool beat at 1.43.
the strings are a bit heavy for me.....but minor irritation nothing more.
returning riff is very catchy.
a cool tune

a kick up the harris
It worked then :-)
Good to have you back. What's making the dulcimer noise at the begging/end? Sounds good. Almost a sort of Dead Can Dance feel to the beginning until the electro beat comes in. Carries on well throughout.
I wouldn't call it static. Thoughtful maybe.
Good to hear a new song
all the best B

Sophisticated oriental trance music. I kept waiting for the water to clear so I could see Kali dancing :-) Thanks.

Wavy sort of flow to it. Interesting juxtaposition of repetitive beat and lively leads. I like it!

Yes!
This is wicked good. That descending intro melody pleasantly defies gravity and the mix is spacious and very pro level. Sounds excellent in the headphones. Good to have you back!

Eastern influenced - cool mix and development. You keep things restrained which works really well. Fun rhythms and lots of interesting bits and bobs that play off each other. That bass synth is a good sound to contrast with the zither(?) and the string synth. Dloaded with thanks!

Finding inspiration
If this kind of enchanting Arabian Nights-inspired work comes out of an infrequent MacJams visit .. perhaps you should be visiting more often?

Very strong.
I love the Eastern flavour you've put into this. That takes some knowledge of how Eastern music works, and you've applied it well.

long time absentee returns. It's like coming back to an old family reunion and seeing so many familiar names from years past.Like you I doubted anyone would bother but have been really pleasantly surprised. Enjoyed listening to this along with many others over the last few days.bless MJ world!

Trance-like....
Absolutely. It is interesting to me that you won't let go of that descending figure and just hammer it through the piece so insistently and, I might add, with a certain courage of conviction. It takes hold and settles nicely into my bones kind of like a mantra of sorts. The opening sparkly piano/dulcimer is really pleasant. I wish there were a little more of it sprinkled throughout the piece in little splashes, though it does define the motif. This is a cool little number. I wish it were just a little longer.
