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.

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.

We can't wait to hear them!

Video - Adding RealTracks to Your Band-in-a-Box® Song

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
