Patience, what is really needed in today's world.

BiaB style - Oreg Slow - Slow New Age World-B
Tempo = 40 BPM - This is an ambient song

I deleted the drums.
Bass - Ample Bass - upright bass
Piano - Kontakt - Air Vox Stardust multi - FX - Raum reverb. Note that both of these tracks are straight from BiaB with no modifications.

I am playing the lead via my MIDI guitar controller - Kontakt = Triple Phased Halo Octave Multi

And the strings via my MIDI keyboard controller - Kontakt - Retro Strings - FX - Raum reverb

As always I am open for constructive comments.

Wow Mario. I love this kind of music. Makes you want to stop everything close your eyes and let all thoughts of everything but the excellent sounds floating around the room. Very well done

Mystically engaging.

Soothing, yet compelling music in troubled times.

Nice work.

Hi Mario,

You've done it again.

This is a very nice cinematic experience. As with all your works, I sat here with my eyes closed and I just let my mind flow along with the music. From travelling in space to sailing oceans to drifting in ones deepest thoughts to watching a sunrise, this music took me to all those places and more. The more I listened, the more I realised that to hear your music is to experience it.

Really well done.
Noel

Oh my God, Mario. Just kidding. I don't have my own God, but, man, you are one mystically magical man. Patience. Great title. I tried breathing this slowly, and wow. This is so perfect for many many moods.

Very well done - amazing song here, love how calming and ethereal it is. Almost makes you feel like you're floating in space. I can imagine this sounding unreal in as part of a movie soundtrack, it has a cinematic vibe to it. Also reminds of some older Aphex Twin work, named Selected Ambient Works Pt. 2.

Contender for favourite I've heard you do - thanks for sharing smile

Mario,

You are the BIAB new-age King.

I'll say it again - you could sell CDs of this. Really well done.

A beautiful, relaxing listen.

Really creative, interior journey. I've always found it difficult working in very slow tempo's like this--can't seem to "hear" complete musical thoughts that get stretched out for so long. So I'm quite impressed with this track! I don't understand all the instrumentation settings, but it came out great! Thanks Mario!

Ethereal, atmospheric, ambient. heavenly, unearthly, celestial - OK, I may have looked up a thesauraus grin
This is terrific Mario - the textures, the instruments, the arrangement. It's a soundtrack waiting for a movie (or a space walk, or an episode of Fargo etc.).
You've inspired me to have a go at an ambient piece sometime soon.
Thanks for sharing this one,
Mike

Thanx for listening and those great comments. I have been called many names but "mystically magical man" was never one of them. I like that one!

Thanx again.

Thanx so much Deryk. BiaB is such a versatile piece of software that it makes it very easy to compose in virtually any genre.

Thanx Floyd for these very nice comments. New age and ambient are two genres that I really enjoy playing. I'm glad that you liked this one.

Thank you for listening and commenting. I'm sure that you could produce something similar to this if you tried. I include the instrumentation date for those whom might want to venture into the MIDI side of BiaB, the side that is often overlooked.
