You are laying by the babbling brook gazing up at the clouds imaging what each one resembles. You gotta love those summer nights when you were younger and had those Images of Wonder.

BiaB style = Very Slow Trance- Like N

I deleted all but the strings.

JohD is playing the keyboards and I am playing everything else.

We hope you like it.

Mario & Jon,

Nicely done. An enjoyable listen. Has a "haunting" quality to it...

Nice job here, Mario! It's got a really relaxing vibe it, and almost an eeriness or other-worldliness to it as well. It reminds me of something by Tangerine Dream or Brian Eno back in the day. Which is most definitely a good thing in my books!

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

I want to thank everyone who took the time to listen and comment on this song. Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Furry, yes that is the word builder from East West's Symphonic Choirs.

Hi Mario and Jon
This really is very haunting (not so sure about “relaxing” maybe more “on the edge of my seat” type stuff. Lol). Nicely played and produced. Good job!

Hi Mario,

Once again you and Jon have turned up the 'ambience' dial and have unleashed creativity. Like with so much of your music, it's very easy to envision this as mood backing for some movie. You definitely have a flair with this genre.

I found this a haunting experience.

All the best,
Noel

Can’t beat your description guys. You set it up well. You alluded to childhood memories of laying back and looking at the sky. Well, my wife - the eternal child, still does that and is filled with wonder. Me? I wonder at her wonder smile

Excellent composition, arrangement and performances.

This patch includes some RealTracks audio updates we have made since the release of Band-in-a-Box 2018. 2018 users should be sure to download the latest Band-in-a-Box 2018 update patch (519), as that patch includes the bulk of the fixes for RealTracks released with 2018. This is a larger download than typical because it updates the Vocal Oohs and Aahs RealTracks audio files. There is more information and Audiophile patches available here.

Summary of RealTracks Audio updates:

- Bass, Acoustic, RockabillySwingByron Sw 190

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
Improved: Lyrics will be now read from .mid files that used to be karaoke files (.kar) and got renamed somewhere along the line.
Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.
Improved: The Audio Harmony Dialog has been rearranged to be more intuitive when using Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
Fixed: Audio harmonies might be missing some notes.
Fixed: Audio harmonies would be generated with the wrong notes if selecting a range of audio in the middle of the track.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash on bootup with error "Read Beyond end of file".
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box should show message if the latest VJT application is not installed when the user tries to render videos.
Fixed: File > Open Special > Open Audio was importing audio instead of opening it in a new song.
Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
Fixed: Removing a custom drums from a track would still display Drums as the name of the loop in the track.
Fixed: Rendering audio while there is a region of bars highlighted in the chord sheet might cause a crash.
Fixed: Saving a MIDI file would fail unless saving as type 1.
Fixed: Some 12-key RealTracks were incorrectly set to allow transposition.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog needed some hints.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog was missing the new Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
Fixed: The VJT application should print out its version number in log files.
