Description
This composition was a bit difficult to put into a specific genre as I used many influences. The introduction
does have submarine sonar and some of it was modified
with delay designer. The organ of course is inspired
by Pink Floyd.

Ambient/jazz guess NUjazz
Neojazz maybe? lol it is well done with a good mix of intro and mixes thru the entire track. It somewhat has an 80's tech jazz feel to it. I keep waiting for a electro voc to jump in there with something like "funky" lol. Very well done my friend, and thx for shareing.

Son loves it
FIrst, I have to tell you that my 8-year-old son loves this… I'm trying to get him to go to bed, but he's too caught up in the music, bopping madly around the living room during the funky section, and quite enamored with the first section as well. I must say that I concur with his enthusiasm… this is really first rate!

Not sure what genre to put this in either… It starts out as new classical, possibly movie soundtrack type stuff, all very good, then it becomes funky, nujazzy, etc., but bottom line is that it's very cool. Fantastic! I hope you keep composing, 'cause you definitely have a tremendous talent.

Wow.
You are not only talented, accomplished but also amazingly versatile. Love the intro. Elegant, full of subtlety and soulful intensity. Took me a little while to get used to the synth part, but after a while I really got into that too. Very interesting post and after almost 5 minutes the title is fully and utterly self-explanatory. Nice chords on the piano and e-piano too, and with so many different buildups...what a treat!

True Sailing
The ideas are moving and tight. No simple plumbing here! I appreciate things that travel and the ideas are finely crafted. Outstanding use of loops and reverb, the production is sweet. The panning might make this more 80's here and there than maybe you intended but I like it...

Captain Nemo...
This is a surreal and beautiful opening, gives an eerie underwater opening feel, when you are hit by a magnificent sight (heralded by the organ)... after that, things do get mechanica-funky, really fun. I guess with my brain lulled into the Jules Verne style intro, this overall thing might fit beautifully into the rather strange new-ish genre, called "SteamPunk" maybe?

Really an enjoyable listen all the way through, but then, this is Scotty, what would I expect? :-)

ttfn,
Drakonis

voyage
This is a very interesting piece of music. And here is the key: you do what most composers fail to do - you are constantly adding variation to your theme progression. No more than a few bars go by and you change what you are doing - adding, taking away, or altering - makes the whole composition interesting, from start to finish. Good job - very enjoyable listen - thanks for sharing this with us.
