Lost Soul

A lost soul just wandering around, wasting his life. Sometimes he will hit a high but immediately falls back to wandering and wishing his life away. He never does reach happiness.

BiaB styles:
Main style = Oreg Slow - Slow New Age World-B - deleted the strings and drums
Drum style - -NSE16^2.styl - Nashville Even 16
String Style - Question.styl - Smooth Jazz

Instrumentation
Bass = AmpleBass Upright - effect = compression
Piano - EZKeys - Dream Machine
Strings - Kurt Hunters Diamond Orchestra - Pizzicato
Drums - Presonus GM kit
I played my wind controller using Screaming Trumpet sound source

I used reverb on all but the upright bass and kick drum.


My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

Very atmospheric! Almost creepy.

I liked the different melodic themes - it kept things interesting.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Mario,

Awesome! Loved this.

You are really doing some unusual - and delightfully satisfying stuff with BIAB!!

An Earscape. Excellent mix.

A great listen...

Hi Mario,

This is excellent... just like all your music before it.

You've developed an admirable ability to create fine atmospheric music. As I listen, words that sprang to mind were: haunting, mysterious, sense of longing, aimless wandering.

I enjoyed this. It was another satisfying journey.

All the best,
Noel

Sounds a bit Bipolar to me smile

But seriously this has plenty of mood and feel.
Well done Mario. Rob4580

Moody and musical. Loved the playing - trumpet sounds great.

A very evocative composition.

Wow Mario. First that wind controller is such a cool instrument. That back track was something else. I just loved it. Well done

Very nice, Mario. Like the sparseness. The pizzicato strings really add a lot to the atmosphere in this one. Really nice job of arranging! Very cinematic (like so many of your songs).

Mario,
the Pizz strings are great as a foil to the smooth Midi trumpet.
"Filmic" seems the best adjective I can locate.
Lovely.


Cheers

Hi Mario,

Well you got me again, I absolutely love this. Echoes of the cold war/ spy movies of the sixties and seventies, but would work perfectly today too.

You really need to be aiming at some sort of movie/tv placements with these, they are too good to not be out there!

Fantastic job. smile smile

Dark & emotional...
But poignantly conveying your concept...

"wandering around, wasting his life"
Very nicely executed!

Thanx Torrey. It took me quite awhile to come up with that rhythm track. One hit with a lot of misses grin

Thanx Floyd. BiaB give me lots of ideas and snippets to work with. I like experimenting with it and coming up with different themes.

PS - you only hear the ones that work wink
