Might be hard to classify but it's certainly easy to listen to. I enjoyed this one a lot. Thanks for posting.

Hi Mike,

Enjoyed it.

Hi, Mike,

I'm going to have to go the other way (not meditative) - I found the piano distracting - the staccato playing did not fit with the other instruments (for me). I thought it might have worked better without it at all - or change to an e. piano... or find a piano that was smoother...

Everything else worked nicely.

Good overall sound from my view. I especially enjoyed the section(s) where the flutes carried the lead.

Nice work!

Thanks to all for the time to listen as well as for the comments. We always learn from all of it. The amazing thing about music in general is that it meas and evoke different things to different people. I didn't intended for it to be evocative like some of you regard it as, but hey, works for me!

Thanks

Mike B.

Awesome. I think "World Music" is the genre here. Let me know if you ever need a flamenco guitar riff. I am only a drop box away. smile

Great work!!
