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

Haunting and quite beautiful.

Mesmerizing in many ways.

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.
