Enter the dark mysterious mind of a Lost Soul . At times he is almost at peace with himself but most of the time he is in turmoil. Nothing really flows for him. At times he hears voices but most of the time he hears low moans, broken rhythms and strange sounds.

I used BiaB style Exotic1-slow,exotic, soundtrac. All of the tracks are here. All are slightly modified except the drums; they were stripped apart with some parts erased and others heavily modified. I played the wind controller part (0boe) while all of the other added parts I played on my keyboard.

I know that this is a very unusual posting for the forum but I do hope you will listen and give comments, good or bad.

Mario,

Haunting, disturbing, beautiful, affecting, cinematic, magical, transcendental, transporting. Perfectly mixed. I loved it. It "took me away".

Do you have a hard time going to a movie and actually watching the movie? You must be paying so much attention to the soundtrack that you get lost.... How else could you create something so evocative???

So your description... is that anyone around these here parts???????

One VERY small nit-pik. That last note needs to fade out to oblivion - right at the end it gets clipped instead of being allowed to die a slow, slow death....

As Mario would say... "Two BIG thumbs up!"

Yes, you're right Mario, very unusual post for this forum, but I like cinematic themes a lot, I have created a few of them myself, but do not use BIB for it, that's why I don't post them in here so there are no complaints about it (which I agree with BTW). I would have let the final gong hit to fade all the way though. Again, this one is a winner.

Thanx all for listening and the comments.

Floyd and Pete, I do hear the gong fade into nothing here on my system. I’ll have to recheck that and see what’s going on. Thanx for the heads up.

Pat, what would the National Geographic special’s topic be? I was thinking more of a Twilight Zone special myself.

An exotic piece of work, never heard anything remotely resembling it. Very crafty, and I generally need lyrics to keep hanging in there with the music, but that is my shortcoming. Keep this up Mario and you might expand my musical horizons

Sounds like a journey through Africa, and then the haunted house. Very well mixed! Thanks for sharing another fine piece of music.

Thanx pariahdise, Josie and Robert for taking the time to listen and thanx for the kind comments.

Hi Mario,

This definitely needs visuals! You must have had fun putting this one together. I reckon it's in the top three most creative pieces I've heard from you. From start to end it breathes 'atmosphere'.

All the best,
Noel

Extremely creative. At times the soul seems to be on a positive journey -- almost an Eastern spiritual experience and then....well it seems like whatever demons he/she harbored rise to the surface. Just a great piece all the way around!

I'll second that: Profoundly mysterious. Is it a song or an altered mental state? Bizarre and unnerving in the way that the intro "music" to the original "Alien" movie was. After just a few "notes" you just knew you were about to be scared out of your wits in a deeply unexpected way.

Welcome to my world. This reminds me of a good bit of tuneage I hear in the Music Forum at Propellerhead--free tempo, sometimes without apparent tonal center, atmospheric--everything that adds to good cinematic values. Good work. I must comment that the cymbal/gong clips off in the middle of a nice reverb tail on my listen, too, instead of trailing into silence. Once you fix that it will be flawless.

Thanx for listening and the extremely nice comments. I was a little hesitant to post this one as it is different that most of the other posts but I’m glad it did now!

Noel- I’m afraid that the graphics might be a little too violent or scary!

Skyline – I enjoy these also. I will post more in the future.

F.M.M., Mootsman, aleck and Ryszard Thanx for the positive feedback.

Mario,

My 1st thought was, hey are you alright man? Bottom-line is it had me from the git go, I could not stop listening.

This may be the most creative piece I have heard from you. Congratulations.

Now take off those dark glasses grab yourself a beer and play with some puppies.

Later,

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
