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!

Will

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.

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.

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 should be in a movie. It’s that good…

Creative and excellent sounding.

Thoroughly enjoyed.

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.
