"I see I was right about the mathematical content then - how interesting! I have considered use of maths ideas in music before, when thinking of ways to make my work original, though I planned to use it more as a minor dimension of creativity, rather…"

"I thought there were real strings in there. Always helps, doesn't it? Thanks for your comments on Snow Pilgrim. It's a blend of different percussion libraries, but the main loop is from Adrenaline I think, and there's Storm Drum 2 in there as well.…"

miketorr commented on James Semple's blog post Oil and Water
"This reminds me of the infamous "Loudness wars" of the music industry, in which the same paradox applies - the louder you try to make something using compression, the less impact it will have - because you lose dynamics. It's quite surprising how…"

"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…"

"Had to post a second time to say that Gomyra (Gremlin Hair Morning) is great! I know someone who does bellydancing here in the UK, and I would love to have got a gig writing music like this :)"

"Hi Yaiza,

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…"

  • Hey Mike. How's things? Just noticed that you left me a really kind comment back in Feb. Sorry. I rely on the email notifications and I must have missed this one.

    How's everything going? Bought any new vsts?

    I really like Snow Pilgrim. Great track!
  • very intresting...i wih you God inspiration. large palette of styles,keep going..
  • Isn't it strange how writing music draws you back once you've been away from it for a while. As for the studio... it's amazing what you can do with a few bits of MDF, a can of black paint and a few screws! I'll be putting some music up this weekend to get peoples feedback. Cheers
  • Hi Mike, Had a good listen to your stuff. It took me away and I really connected with it. Nice Job. I love "Beauty" wonderful space in it. Wishing you success!
  • I am extremely glad for it's releasing and your singing in it. Please do let me know, I'll be waiting to hear the mastered version !
    And all the best for 2010 and beyond !
  • I can't imagine it sounding better on anyone else. Are you sure you don't wanna sing it ?
  • Listening to 'Shed' again !
  • Listening to your stuff.
    You've got quite a library here !
    "Shed" is most amazing thing I've heard for quite some time !
    Loved "Crazy Cat", very sway-style.
    I love the way you sometimes use an unexpected instrument here and there when one least expects something like it.
    I like "Beauty". It's simple and well lit.
  • Comprehensive work. Shed really caught my attention. Thank you !
