Interesting
I like how you captured the essence of a ship swaying back and forth in
the water, nicely done. It has an eerie feel to it and suits it well,
however after a little while it got a little repetitive.
Check out my latest song called Giving Up (Instrumental)

Thanks for the comments. It was intended to be repetitious... good thing I cut it from it's original 8 minutes plus, huh? At around 1:28 the lullaby comes in to break the monotany...

Not only a score
I felt as though I were listening to the soundtrack after the foley artist had
put in the ship sound effects.
Very well done.
I wouuldn't mind hearing the longer version someday, but I understand
your decision to be economical. I've done the same in the past. For
example, my "Number" was originally 11 minutes. It's very easy to lose
track of time while creating or listening to an ambient piece.

Thanks Bill! I admit... I tossed the rest of the track... It really wasn't any more developed. I felt like I got what I needed with this.

I'll have to check out "Number"... I'm so slow to get around and I always try to listen to Jammers I haven't heard yet. That'll have to be the next Mungo track I listen to, last time I was distracted by "Ghost of 138"...

goddamn.....
.......not only am i a sucker for that fretless playing (with such taste, clarity and perfection), but your artistic directions are so moving. this is brilliant, really. now i think i have to puke........(turning green)......he he.
Check out my latest song called lit with a wet match.

goddamn.....
If you puke you gotta swab the deck! I hope that's a good thing... Thanks for your always kind words. I don't really know what my artistic directions are until I'm almost done the journey. That's been curious to me...

sci-fi fog horn limbo
creaky boat sounds a great touch. I like the suggestiveness of the track, puts you right on the boat with the ancient mariner, a hundred dead eyes staring up at him, rotting bird around his neck, Water, water everywhere, but nare a drop to drink... that kind of thing. good job!

Hollow Soundscape
Love those hollow effects and the way they circle around. Very catchy
rhythm though I kept wanting to hear some chord changes in there. I
think the volumes could have been brought down on some of the effects
here and there to highlight other sounds and add more subtlety to the
soundscape. Minor picks, but I LOVE what you've done here. The mental
imagery it evokes, alone, is enough to bring anyone to a different place
and time. I have to go check out your other stuff! Nice!

I have to say J...
You are one of few people here who has shown a high level of
consistency w/ your ability to transport - I'm always stunned and left
somewhat uneasy about some of the places that you've been
successful at taking me, but that's apart of it... And like what antonalis
said about the fret - I'm a sucker for it too, but only when is being
approached w/ such the degree of artistry. skill and taste.

Now, has anyone talked to you about anti-depressants... - I know...
Dion - Only

Thanks Dion! I hope I can continue to transport you places you haven't been... It's not too uneasy, is it? You've been very kind and very supportive... Thank You!

Anti-depressents? Now what kinda fun would that be?

Creaky creepy
Great production on this.

The creaky effects, which could have been overplayed, work really well.

Creepy stuff - I kept thinking of Silent Hill (the game) when I played this, which similarly scared the bejesus out of me. Are there voices on this or is it my imagination ...?

Creaky creepy
Thanks echoroom! I had fun with this. About half way through there is a lullaby... I tried to place it in the mix so that listeners weren't sure if they were hearing it or not. Glad you picked up on that.
