Boot Hamilton replied to Yoshed's discussion Your world, my world, our world : a music searching for an horizon
"Beautiful, of course. 'Other directions'? Yes. At about the 1:52 mark, I'd think a little break from the tonic key; maybe a hint of lurking dissonance ( as 'relief' from all this lush beauty), before returning home to wrap things up.

"Oh you're taking yourself waaaaay too seriously. "My mistake"? Lighten up, OK? You generously opined regarding my upload. I appreciate that. We had a nice exchange. I appreciate that, too. Don't ruin it. Life's too short.
It's OK to screw around…"

"Hey! Leave the guy alone. He's entitled to his own (excellent, I might say) opinion.
Thanks for the kind words, George. Pay no attention to those other two - they're always yammerin' on about something... it's a UK thing (jealous bastards)."

" Smaller space - listening again, yes. It's a very large, long reverb and maybe the issue for me is that it doesn't evoke the kind of atmosphere that the music does (the cliche being a small club or similar). More of an ambient effect than…"

"Ray -
Bass & drums, huh?. Interesting. That just may be a pretty good idea. I'm no stranger to employing a string bass (all the more surprising I didn't go that way in the first place). But like I've previously alluded - I think it's not uncommon to…"

"Dave - I didn't take the 'meanderings' phrase as an insult, at all. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.

"That's got a lot of good stuff in it. Nice job. Are you going to comb through it, keeping favorite bits & pieces for development and reconstitution? You should. Many possibilities. Right on the Money ('couldn't resist)."

  • Hey Boot, Ingo here.  I like your retro/modern approach!  I wanted to invite you to http://indierecordingdepot.com/   It's a small forum, not too busy, but good people and more recording oriented, not classical as much as here.  Just a suggestion!
