Very cool, Bill
I really like the chord progressions and how they speed up in the middle. Very different and interesting piece!

Seamless transitions
Listened to this a couple of times now and really enjoying it. It's long but doesn't seem like it and the chord progressions are fresh. Quality.

Pretty beautiful feel
I like the patient developement - and the way the chord progression starts as a slowly stated structure and then becomes a riff. great playing - i didn't realize you were as gifted a guitar player as you are a keyboardist - or is there some magic going on here?

guitar
the three guitar leads form a fugue. the second guitar is an exact copy of the first that comes in two loops later one octave lower. then two loops after that the third guitar is the same again only one octave higher.

i imagined playing my guitar while recording live improvising this on a keyboard (the pitch bend obviously was used a lot here). it took several takes to get it right. then i used the pencil tool to fix up a few flubs, but it basically just my improv.

i used a similar method for lead guitar on It Slowly Dawned - see the 10/07/06 comments.

i really want to get a midi guitar, "it just hasn't happened yet*"

I feel like this is my life. Haha. I love the mixture of the crowd's nonsense, and the light chords with the toying sounds which follow.

Beautiful composition
Melody is something I really pay attention to, more than sophistication in production or unleashed creativity (often a good excuse). I listened part 1 too. Great progression of chords here, and balance in mixing I'm jealous about. Heard it twice while typing this. Originality, creativity, feeling, performing, inspiration... you got it all !

use on website
I am starting a transformational experiences center in Lapland and would like to use your song Talkoot on my website - still planned at this stage.
Talkoot will be used in the context of the Finnish concept of talkoot - your thoughts would be appreciated!
