Description
This is an ambient piece I did with a Kalimba, a Casio CZ101 and more Gleetchlab processing to the end result. I think it's rather pretty.

on a completely unrelated note, here's an old one to check out:

Sweet little ditty.

I enjoy hearing your little experiments. I'm sick and tired of all your hit songs.

Your pal,

sometimes.....
when I'm half asleep at night the downstairs clock does this. But not as good.

Another neat little piece. now your going to have incorporate it into some tunes with vocals and drums and create a whole new style of music.

Another good track
Who's been a busy boy then. Another little ambient experiment. Is a very good little tune, I just wish it was a little longer. Still very good though.

I sense an obsession -
or at least a mild infatuation with a new toy here. That said - this is one sweet little piece of music. I like the way you're combining the hi tech with the lo tech - like you did with the other piece with piano. RE Bob's comment - lol - too much.

very cool :)
I love all these experiments!

There is a sort of whimsy to this one that I really like :)
Thanks for sharing!

Reminds me of wandering into a
nineteenth century inventor's laboratory - lots of whirring little machines, clinking metal of intricate mechanical devices, governors rotating.... and then the steam source that drives them all runs out.

Clearly been playing too many adventure games...

Cool piece! Thanks for sharing,
Doug

Yes
Your keywords did it for me, I dig where this comes from and I hear it
kristyjo said 4285 days ago (November 29th, 2007)
Yes -
This is one of the best kalimba/synth fusion pieces I've heard for at least a couple of weeks :)
It is a lot of fun, though. And, yes, pretty.

Oh the instruments you'll hear
There are not that many pieces using a kalimba as main sound source. That's quite original.

Ok, I absolutely have to try gleetchlab. This is really cool.

Loved it - especially the droning whistle in the background.

Gleetch
is pretty nice, and you get a lot out of it, I think. Very smooth and subtle.
I wish this were longer, though.
