I'm busy working on building my skills with making videos! So here's another track of mine from a while back with an appropriate video added. Some of the clips are stock footage but most of it I filmed this week in and around Whichford, a beautiful village in the Cotswolds not far from us.

I haven't found a way yet of making YouTube videos default to 1080HD (highest quality playback), so if your connection is speedy enough change the setting to that as the video was filmed in HD throughout. Thanks!

I really enjoyed that. I think the video perfectly fits the tune much like one would visualize winter's end.

Very well done.

John,

Being blind I couldn't see the video, but enjoyed the music very much.
Simply beautiful. Reminds me of the music of Eric Satie.

Very nice music and video.

When the strings and bass come in, it really lifts the piece. I can see the Gymnopodae reference but it is more uplifting than Erik Satie so remains original.

I could see this being on one of those new age / meditation CDs you can buy.

Production is crystal clear and the nature sound effects work well and are not overdone.

Regards.
Mike.

Nice chords, maybe a little ott on the intro sound effects!

Cleverly manages to be slow, quiet but never dull. (in a kind of all acoustic Blue Nile stylee).
But then again John we would expect nothing less from you

all the best,

Marc

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.
