Prometheus

Description
My latest offering is of the ambient nature and borrowing from Greek mythology. Prometheus was chained to a rock while an eagle ate his liver daily, until Hercules killed the eagle and freed Prometheus. Of course, the eagle didn't have fava beans and a nice chianti to accompany his meal, but I'm sure he enjoyed it all the same. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my latest, mellow offering, sans the beans and wine! Be well!

Nice one B
I'm sitting here trying to hear Prometheus (or the eagle) but it/they elude me. However, I hear very cool percussion (along with some interesting electronic sounds) and I'd like to know how you do that. I think the thing I like best about the perc is that it's not constant (ie: throughout the tune) but comes and goes as necessary. Okay, when's the new CD due out?

Thank you so much! The percussion is a mixture of both the GB drum kit and the Nexus 1 kits. I created a few drum and percussion tracks , then layered them together. It was trial and error until I felt it sounded right. I tried to keep things interesting by varying the drum and percussion tracks so it didn't result in a monotonous menagerie of noise. As for the CD, I have decided to make my music available a la carte on Reverb Nation. My Reverb Nation sales have far exceeded my sales on iTunes. I can offer the same quality on Reverb that I do on iTunes, but I can choose to offer-up my tracks for a lower price, making it more affordable in this down economy.

Thanks again for stopping by, richard13! I always appreciate your comments! Be well!

the sins of prometheus
It is a chilling tale, a reminder not to play with fire or steal, especially when vengeful gods are involved.

As always, your music is crisp, driven, refreshing, and a joy to become immersed in. Great synth sounds, arps, and crystal clear mix.
ttfn,

Thanks! Here is an excerpt; "Prometheus steals some fire from the hearth of Zeus and gives it to his mortals. As a result of having fire, man no longer shivered in the cold..."

The title drew me in...

Wow, what a great track. It has a sensuality about it that is very appealing. Like the way it builds up towards the middle, then goes back into the smooth groove. Good stuff!

very nice
crisp and clean production as always. i love the stringed instrument and really great synth choices. there is definitely a feeling of hopelessness and despair, while still maintaining a relentless energy and forward movement. very much like the idea of prometheus and his eagle. nicely done.

The sounds
and mixes of your songs are always stellar, but I sure like these ambient pieces even more than the more "danceable?" ones. Very neat. Just the words Omnisphere-Nexus-Vanguard sends a shiver down my spine, and this time you really made them deliver too. Thanks!
