OK, I'm all about Gomyra. All your work is refreshing, fearless, alive and way fun. The more left turns you take the more the listener is pulled in. The mash-ups work for me. Give me a 7/8 @140bpm with a pumping didgeridoo, lilting shakuhachi and driving dumbeks and I'm there. Minimalism...underplayed, underproduced... nice.
Thank you. I really like your music. I'm not just saying that. It's really interesting and folkie/world music enough to make me feel as this is an old friend I'm seeing again. Did you create it all on your own? If so i'm impressed. Love the Tabla and general Indian music influence. Inspiring stuff!
Thank you for your reply. Yes, each track is a movement and somewhat autobiographal. I studied the legends before me and I sit upon their shoulders. The tracks illustrate this. I now am working on many original pieces entitled "soliloquies". Keep pressing on!
Thank you so very much for your comments....fellow composer....and touche......I clearly note the luminosity in your musical poetry. The search to reach the unknown....through minimalistic; however diverse and atractive methods......wonderful...thank you for the opportunity to hear your music...
Hi Yaiza, and thanks for your kind comments about my work. Snow Pilgrim uses Tonehammer's "Forgotten Voices - Cait" library, which is excellent. I routed the vocals through a "reversed" patch on Cubase's convolution reverb. I think the percussion was from EW Stormbreakz, though I can't remember at the moment.
I'm so pleased that everyone seems to like Euphoria! It's a track on my album, and I had assumed it would not be accessible because it was so long and jazzy - but that seems to have been its strength. People's tastes are not easy to predict, and it's probably best not to try :)
Thanks again, and I look forward to hearing more of your music.
It's been very interesting listening to your work - there's a lot of originality here. I really liked "Coffee Blue Aroma" and "Sweet". Working through the others now.
Your comments about "Not What I Had In Mind" resonated with me - the same thing has happened to me quite a few times :) A small number of these became published works, but most are sitting on my hard drive, glowering at me... I think they still want to escape but I won't let them out until they behave.
