Description
OK. Here is an idea how to positively waste 4 minutes of your precious time: download this visualizer install it and listen to this song in iTunes. This is one of my infamous a.m. sessions which I'll never find time to finish (hence a.m. - meaning I didn't have time to do it either) needless to say I wasn't planning to post it until I saw what that little plugin did with the music, so I thought maybe you'll get a few moments of innocent joy watching those fireflies dance. And no, I'm no affiliated with the programmers, just read a forum post today and downloaded it.

On a musical note - as usual there are no loops, everything done from scratch - amazing what you can do in GB within very few hours. I'm starting to realize that I could only do that in Garageband, no other program is that simple to use. Also think my sound quality is improving after roughly 94 years of trying (VintageWarmer is a beauty). Promise I'll post some real music soon:)

visualizing
whirled peas. Nice ambient jam Pari. A delicate blend of sounds that soothes the mental palatte. Post an extended version. I can see my self listening for a quick pick me up during a particularly stressful day.

Parichayaka - thank you for the music !
Listening to you stuff is always a pleasure to me.
Can't wait to hear the next track :)

I tried this visualizer yesterday and will try it again now with your song.
It's quite nice - but I still love my G-Force visualizer (by SoundSpectrum).

ps: Eyephedrine is nice too :)

I have to say is that you are too modest! When I push play on one of your pieces....I already know I'll be satisfied:)

Beautiful track
I like the build in the song and the interesting textures you use and then the tail off back to the simple theme. Good construction!

Nice posting.

Luverly...
Enjoy the textures and layering, great structure. I'm still coming down from this one.

Psychodelic fun!
Psychodelic! Very cool. It sounds well-developed to me; I was expecting more of a sketch from your description, but I like this a lot. I like the way it builds and then starts to unravel around the 3/4 mark.

BTW, do you know about the "Golden Mean"? It refers to the proportion:
.618 : .382, which can also be expressed:
1 : .618, or
1.618 : 1

Anyway, the useful thing about it for musicians is that the proportion can be used in composing, in many different ways, but in a case like this particular piece, you could aim to have your piece peak around 62% of the way through, followed by a steady descent for the remaining 38%... not that you should, or anything like that, but it can be a fun proportion to play with, and you might like the results. It hasappeared in art, sculpture, architecture, and music for centuries, I believe because it feels so natural, whether or not the artist/composer/etc. was using it consciously.

You may know all about it already, in which case sorry to go on at such length! If not, and if you're curious to learn more, there's lots of information about it on the Internet.

Very nice music!

"Golden Mean"
Thank you so much! I've never heard of that before. Very interesting. In this case, as usual when I'm supposed to do something else I was just browsing through my sample library looking for good sounds and hit the record button every once in a while. I guess since I simply stopped when I was tired without even working on the structure I called it a draft - rarely are masterpieces done in 3 hours and certainly not by me:) Seriously though, every time I listen to any of your classical works I am fascinated not only by the musical talent, but also your tremendous knowledge of music theory involved. Thanks for sharing that with us!!

Fun
when I saw you had posted a new tune I was excited. I tried the visualizer on this tune and on your Turning Point KOVII as well (since it's next in my itunes) and it was as cool.

The more I listen to your music the more I think "why aren't you doing this for a living?" Obviously you may not want to do that, but if you wanted to I think you could. You have a great God-given talent.

Anyway I look forward to more of your symphonic stuff too!
peace

Spooky
Love the opening ... like a more gentle version of 'Tiubular bells', and this develops beautifully ... gentle but slightly disquieting, then it really takes off, and takes you away. Really dig the minimal percusiion (including the 'snaps').

If you did this in GB in a couple of hours, lord knows what you'd do at a weekend. Wonderfu

Parichayaka said 3611 days ago (August 6th, 2007)
Thanks!
This kind of music requires nothing but some fresh fruit, ice cream and a blender - "smoothies" are fun, true - but serious songwriting, the kind of songs you write - do take a lot longer for good reasons. So what would I do in a full weekend - I don't know, something more elaborate, closer to what you're doing? Seriously, thanks for stopping by.

Cool builds...
...will try the visualizer when I get home...

...I like this..."whirled peas" is a funny way of putting it...easy to visualize in my head, that's for sure...

Sounds real enough to me
There's really excellent stuff going on here and that little glockenspiel-like ostinato bit is very eerie (bit John Carpenter-esque). I like the way the track builds - I can imagine vocals over parts of it (perhaps you should ask someone like Onesweetworld to have a go and see what they come up with...)

BTW what's that VintageWarmer thingy of which you speak?

Thanks!
It's funny how you're also hearing something "eerie" in this track! To me it's all dreamy and carefree. It's great how music is never static and grows with each person listening to it.
The Vintage Warmer plug-in is a high-quality digital simulation of an analog-style, a single- or multi-band compressor/limiter, it's easy to use and helps bring my GB exports to life. Why do i always sound like a salesman when I talk about plugins?! Thanks again for stopping by.

This is real music!
Of course. Very nice. Love it whe the drums come in. Great sound you've got there. This si the sort of track that could go on for four minutes or forty (well, 17 to fit on one side of an LP - remember them?). I love it. Why the hiss at the beginning though? Is that deliberate - you never know thesse days:-))

Cheers,
Phil

Thanks a lot
I spent a lot of time in my childhood listening to music and fairy tales on LPs. Somehow I guess that LP dust noise stuck with me and I added it to give the intro a more intimate feel, if that makes any sense:)

I just spent
hours trying to get rid of some crackling on a track. And you put it there on purpose. Genius.
I really, really like this - it builds beautifully and unhurriedly. You give the music room to breathe.
Cheers

amazing talent
I have spent quite awhile this morning listening to many of your songs. You are very, very good at making beautiful music. Listening, I find myself in my own little world, eyes closed and gently rocking side to side - feeling the music and awesome beat. The occasional piano teases and so many surprises in each creation, make me want to listen over and over. Wonderful!!! Thanks for sharing.

!!
this is good shit

it starts bringing about feelings of early memories- fuzzy feelings of things that sort of take on an electic sepia tone.
then it kicks up a notch.
it really moves thru time and feels like a song of becoming one with your past and getting on with life. moviong to the future. well- that's what it says to me.

good shit, sir.

Like crystal
This song is very well paced, and it's arrangement very well considered. I like how it builds in complexity and kicks in toward the end. I've played through a lot of your compositions and they are very clean, stylistically. Ever experiment with some distortion? I'm a confessed nut about grunging thinks up (it covers my mistakes lol), but taking a few of these tracks and experimenting might be alot of fun. Your production is flawless, bro. Excellent work, and I'm very interested to see how your work continues to evolve. Thanks for sharing.

Instant relaxation
Something about this (without even the visualizer) makes me want to sit back, close my eyes, visualize my own swirling little fireballs!

Nicely done!
