Hi Mario,

Very cruisey song - thanks for the listen.

I can definitely imagine this as background music for a film.

Best Regards
Nigel

The wizard of BIAB strikes again, wonderful wonderland both musically and by the landscape it portrays. Colorful and lush like Earth, would be a perfect fit for those nature documents where seasons change in a time-lapse or for just a long Autumn drone shot. Really enjoyed the melody, especially when played by the strings.

Hi Mario.

This is such a soothing sounding oboe. It's one of the best I've heard. When it come writing, arranging and performing cinematic music, you sure stand tall in the forum. It's a genre that you own and it's always a pleasure to listen to your creations.

I really enjoyed this journey.

All the best,
Noel

Thanx so much Noel for great review. The oboe is from Kirt Hunter's Virtuoso orchestra.

Hi Mario,

Very well played (all of the instruments). You only list 8, but it sounds like more. Not because it's too busy, mind you, but because it has such a rich and melodic sound. Nice!
Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the listen.
