Hypnotic, very captivating, original. First class. Reminded me a little of the mood Leonard Cohen can evoke.
Well done both.

This is a beautiful piece of music and I like how it builds up. I can imagine it with you two in conversion, answering each other one line to the next. Great choice of styles and as I said before, how it builds. Patrick

PgFantastic, glad you enjoyed thanks for listening


nobilis, yes the conversation was the idea. I see the song as a sort of letter to a child and I thought it might work to have the "father" and the "mother" deliver the message individually and at the same time. Instead of two songs one from each parent or each parent alternating verses, why not try it as a collage of two voices?
