I didn't post this tune for several months, because I was in a state of depression after all what happened to me, my family and close friends in 2020 - the Covid-19-year.

I made the track in the beginning of this year (2021) - I wanted to somehow reflect the anxiety and confusion most of us felt during the pandemic year of 2020 - how would a classic romantic piece have sounded if it had been composed this year?

Romance Anönimo 2021

Normally I would now list a number of RealTracks that I have used, but it doesn't really make sense in this case. I sampled a bunch of RT's and used them as inputs for a granular synth so I could create my own unique sound for this track.

The piano is Stage-73 from Arturia.

Let me know what you think!

Very atmospheric sounds - not sure if that's a word.
Pretty track Will, it sounds like a movie scene score.

Hey Will,

Sounds great. Good to see you back!

This is cool. I think this is one of the first guitar pieces I learned as a kid.

Will,
Interesting and dark meditational interpretation. Probably the most unusual Anónimo I have heard. Cool.
Thank you for sharing.

Nice capture of those anxious and confusing times, Will. Man, there is so much feeling in this piece. Such a wonderful production. Take care, and thanks for sharing this. It speaks for so many.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Will,

A beautiful piece. Your sampled-RT-synth sounds are super.

Sounds really cool in headphones. Good work. Relaxed with a slight tension.

I thought it was a scene from The Birds at 1st.
The backing is sombre and dark with a sad melody riding it but I think you overplayed your hand with the FX - they are unrelenting and do conjure anxiety but, on my part, that morphed into annoyance because I wanted the melody to have some space and provide some resolution.

Nice work - like David I learned this on classical guitar.

Interesting use of synths sounds and technology.

Very cool song Will. One thing for sure is the embracing music in tough times one can have moments of peace. Well done

It definitely captures the anxiety and depression of the period in a very cinematic way.

Using the RT's for samples is something I don't recall anybody else doing. Very interesting.

Janice says she is picturing huge swarms of blackbirds....

Well done!

Will, this is fantastic! I can see this one being used in a sy-fy movie. An excellent listen through headphones: I normally don't listen through headphones but I took Floyd's advice and I'm glad that I did.

This is a fantastic song - loved it.
