for Geoff, who doesn't like ambient



 Genre: Electronic

Get Flash to see this player.

Four synth tracks: Alchemy Off Road bass preset, and GB's Solo Star, Rotuma Bells and Planetarium.

Back in early October, after having auditioned many of my September efforts, my son Geoff said "Can't you do anything that doesn't put me to sleep?" So I did this piece.

This morning, when I told him I was about to post it and add his quote as the genesis for it, he admitted that he often listens to an internet ambient station to fall asleep. Oh well… .

I stuck with the original title anyway.

J.-M. Jarre base
with some sweet synth melody on top. I was thinking what would happen if there was some drums/percussion on this. Could work, I guess.

Otherwise I second Dick on his comment :-)

Take care,

for Geoff
Smooth sounds and gentle melody, with the quicker pace of the track underneath (which I might have brought up a bit in the mix) giving it liveliness. Entertaining, Richard.
