Cool Waters

You are sitting by your campfire watching the lake's waves slowly come to shore. Most are very similar but on occasion one will make a large splash. Large fluffy snowflakes from the first snowfall are slowly dancing in front of your eyes but you don't care, you are in a serenity state of mind.

BiaB style - Rendevous - Arpeggiated Ballad
Tempo = 85 BPM

Piano - Keyzone classic EP
All of the following BiaB tracks are Kontakt instruments:
Bass - Kirt Hunter virtuoso instruments-bass-
Cellos - bass track raised one octave - Kirt Hunter virtuoso instruments - cellos
Guitar - Gentle Vibes
Strings - Kirt Hunter virtuoso instruments-strings

I am playing the timpani, cymbals, chimes, and harp loops via my keyboard controller.
I am playing the flute via my wind controller. All are Kontakt instruments.

All but the bass and cellos have Raum reverb added.

I was already entranced by your explanation of the song smile

Yes, I believe you have captured everything that you described. Very orchestral and a great choice of instruments.

Congrats, for sure.

Mario,

Really well done. The king of New Age on these forums, for sure...

Everything sounds good (as always). Good mix. Good playing...

Beautiful. More than just beautiful - it really is stunning. It just builds up. And it's ten times, twenty times better than all that New Age stuff we keep hearing that sounds always as if it's recycled or something. The only thing I didn't like about this was that it ended. Well done, Mario.

Thanks,
I think you just gave me an non-pharmaceutical B/P reduction tool.

I love the water, lived aboard my boat for many years, this brought me back to those pleasant days.

Beautiful.
Well done!

Beautiful! Sounds like a cross between Massenet's Meditation and DeBussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Fawn. Really nice!

it's a lovely piece Mario! The chimes had me envisioning the effect of wind blowing across the water creating ripples! You always do these songs so beautifully! T

The flute sample really sounds great when you get up the register a bit.
You are one clever midi man considering your terrific guitar skills are added to that bank of talent it's no wonder this sounds lovely.

It's so cool when music takes us to places we never knew existed right behind our closed eyes. You live there, Mario, and it's a beautiful landscape. Musicscape. Escape.

Hi, Mario !

You are a master of Ambient music
and this is good proof of that !
One can really shut one´s eyes and
fall back to be carried away to
a dreamland far, far away !

I love this Mario !

Stay safe and take care

Your friend

Powerful yet soft and lovely. You took us to the place you described in your narrative. And it was a most pleasant journey and visit. You write some gorgeous songs, all of them so peaceful to hear. Simply gorgeous!@

Wishing you a fabulous 2021.

Hi MarioD,

You really manage to make us travel in a soft and warm atmosphere. The choice of your instruments is great. It is a very pleasant instrumental composition and we imagine the snowflakes surrounding us. Very pleasant to listen to by the fire, as you kindly say.

Kindly regards
