Thanx for noticing the harmonies. This was my first attempt at a song like this so I am very pleased that you like it.

Hi Mario

Hat off! What a nice song you made. You raised your bar with this one.
And I don't agree with your own line: "You try to reach for the clouds but you never get there".
I think you just did! Well... first stage of course! Otherwise you have nomore challenge for something even greater than this one (...)

I heard your progress in your earlier songs and this one seems to be the cherry on the cake. You made it so easy to see images of nature and animals or other beautiful things before your eyes.
How did you get the idea for it?

Needless to say I enjoyed listening to it,
Hans

Nice! Cool instrumentation, love the stereo spread. And (up to the end) it had the feeling of going somewhere.

Just wish there had been a bit more of an ending... laugh

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

Mario,

Love the dramatic feel of this one. It has a wide open and ethereal sound that would make a great movie track.

Excellent!

Very creative artistry, Mario. You use so many different brushes and each with the perfect stroke. So many colors in this musical tapestry. Man, what a maestro. So much emotion. Well composed and well played. Oh, you did good!


Enjoy whatever happens!

This should be an advertising/demonstration piece for your Controller keyboard manufacturer.

I left the ending like that as one can not reach and touch the clouds, but maybe I should have put a better ending on this. Thanx for pointing that out to me.

Mario,
Very pretty composition. Lots of very interesting motion going on. Your playing is fantastic on this one. I listened and tried to tune my "critical" ear, but simply could not find any soars. Listens very well. KH stuff kicks some serious #ss. Never heard of the brand. Very well articulated sound.

P.S. Gave a listen to my musical 10 y.o., He approves smile

Thank you for sharing.
Misha.

Misha thanx so much for this great review. Yes KH has some good programs; I have a number of them and they all sound great. Even the dated Diamond Orchestra has some super patches.

PS - Tell your musical 10 y.o. that I said thanx to him also.
