Journey to the Center of My Mind

I did not write an intro to this song so use your imagination to describe what you hear, hence the title. Share your thoughts if you like. As always all comments are welcomed.

PS - I ran out of Geritol so I had to slow down

BiaB style = Oort Spacey Ambient Synth - converted to MIDI
Tempo = 40 BPM

I deleted the guitar, drums, and bass
Guitar - Kontakt - Riot - preset Tremolo Clouds
Piano - Kontakt - Heavenly Pad
Me - the 12 string and nylon guitars
- via my keyboard MIDI controller
flute - Kontakt - pan flute
Cellos - Kontakt - Amadeus - cellos
Bass - Kontakt - Amadeus - bass

FX - reverb on all but the cellos and bass, delay on the 12 string, EQ on the nylon guitar, and on the master - compression and EQ.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Nice work. But certainly you have some percussion in there somewhere. I bet if you go deeper you will find it. Think about it. Reminants of a stormy past. Something like Elements Cinematic Rhythms. But just a suggestion. I do love the 40BPM vibe grin

Mario...first off I didn't want to take " A Journey to the Center of Your Mind"...But I took a chance since you only have till next Tuesday to live and I found that it's really very pleasant in your mind...somehow I thought it would be more chaotic in there...this is so peaceful and soothing...this should be played in every dentist's office in America!...loved it!

I love the flute in the first part and throughout the song. The song gives me the feel of an interstellar voyage. Brilliant work!

Fine mix and performances and arrangement.

Enjoyed it and hopefully we will chill away for the day smile

Thanx. I did try some percussion but I thought that it distracted from the mood.

I'm gonna look into that Elements Cinematic Rhythm. Thanx for sharing that info.

When I found out that my wife had made that appointment it burned my butt!

My mind is chaotic most of the time!

I tried to get my dentist to play this but it was like pulling teeth!

Thanx so much for this wonderful review.

Mario,

Wow, so that's what the center of your mind sounds like. Beautiful and calming! Mine, unfortunately, is a bunch of chaotic white noise. Great production and arrangement on this one, Mario. Well done!

All my best,

Deej

A very soothing production, great job.
I hear a happy 115 year old red blood cell lazily swimming along with his buddies hoping for a Geritol boost and twice the iron of a pound of calves liver smile

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Thanx Deej for listening and commenting. My brain is always in a chaotic state! Plus its a half a bubble off center.

Mario, when I saw the title, I was thinking Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, but this was totally on the far opposite end of the spectrum and I like this a lot better! Super, super work with those dreamy soundscapes! You always excel in arranging these kinds of songs! Thanks, Torrey

Hi Mario,

Yes atmospheric - this, and many of your other pieces, would make a great film score.

Best Regards

Cool! A bit of Jean Michel Jarre, without the drums. The 80's strummed electric guitar had a Pink Floyd feel, but you didn't bust out any David Gilmour licks. frown

Fun callback! smile

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

Mario,
A fine soundscape-the flute is lovely and I like the whole trance feel of this (percussion not needed). Listening my pulse dropped to "endless rest" bpm!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
