Yoshed, this is beautiful and somewhat breath-taking. Your music always has 'soul'.

The ending though, left me 'short' and the initial piano/keyboards were too loud. Once

that mellowed out, it was better. The expression itself is loud enough and seems overplayed

 or over ephasized  there.  Just my opinion and ear.  Peace brother and 'happy harmonies'  RS     

Each new chord makes you go wow... and still it is mostly notes from the same scale, but the right notes and chords, according to the appropriate scheme used here... Nice.

Of course the mixing also contributes a big deal to the overall impression. And I would be inspired to learn something about the secrets of that whole mixing thing, if it was not the case that my computer isn't equipped to do proper sound engineering currently.

So instead I thought of something completely different: "How can I replicate the effect of your music, on the Commodore C64 SID chip, with its maximum of three notes at a time?" :) It seemed impossible, but I gave it a try, and it came out much better than I had expected. I wont post it here, but thank you very much for that inspiration!!!


I am a C64 fan, and wrote a notation program (I called it a music processor) for the 3 SID voices plus MIDI. I would like to hear your attempt at this great piece in three voices!

I don't want to hijack the thread, so I will post it in a new thread then. Thank you for the interest!

It is often the most minimalistic work that carries the greatest emotional weight. I like to think of it like magic - the performance of magic is often so wonderful, although, behind the scenes the secret is always simple. Magic, like music, takes place in the mind; and in that is where the beauty lies.

yoshed, forget what I said about the initial keyboards.

after a second listening (and a 3rd ) I have reconsidered, and I

think all is well, as is.   Really, a beautiful piece of work.   RS

Thank you all for your listening and nice comments !

It's a pity you didn't have the video of elephants searching the desert for the next water hole. This would work very well on such a journey.
