nice contrasts
I like the light airy synth bits, then the hard rockin' thrusts... awesome bass-line, sounds like something BOC would have. I assume this is you playing guitar/bass, right? The mix sounds like it is missing a little bit of sparkle on the high end, but a minor nit. Nice work!

soaring AGAIN!!!
Sigmund!!! This is fabulous. Outstanding piece of music. You use pan and fade SO well in this piece. And I love the builds to that great eguitar and then how it all falls away. Great piano work. You've really succeeded in creating an atmospheric sound that gives a feeling of flight and wind rushing by. Production is top-notch. Do you do all of this with Garageband??? I need to learn some of your secrets. I have to agree with drakonis - the EQ seems just a little heavy on the lows. I noticed it especially at the end when the drums kick back in...they seemed just a little muffled and bass-heavy. But, that may be the sound you were going for...so ignore me!

You've managed to maintain a thrilling sense of movement throughout the entire piece without crowding the song with too many sounds and notes. Like I said, your panning and fading really do a great job pushing things forward in a breathy, subtle way - like wind and air.

My only other suggestion is maybe try some different piano sounds - or mess with the EQ on the one you have - it sounds just a little tinny to my ear. Great synth sounds and that shimmery guitar is awesome - and then it gives way to your killer e guitar stuff. Incredible.

Man, I LOVE this. VERY cool stuff. Give us more please!

Hey Sigmund,
It's a great listen! Loved the marriage of different styles. You've got a gift for piecing together things that would otherwise not hold hands. Great job!

This has a great feel
with it. Kind of a Genesis, Collins, Floyd drive and projection. Really enjoyable. Words could work on this also.

Peter Garbiel
I truly enjoy your music. This is a bit of a Peter Gabriel vibe that I dig. One thought came to mind: when the synth kicks in (1:12-1:30), even tho you do an excellent job stereoizing the effect, a spinning out tap-echo might help spin it out further, increasing toward the end of the phrase, in keeping with the who flying theme. Again, the guitar solo is fabulous. Love the sound. I had to put on headphones for this one. Great mix.

sounds terrific to me. I don't know any technical stuff. I like all the variation. This one seems more grounded than the others about soaring. Thanks.

My friend, Ren, who is making the flying video, wishes I would redo the guitar in this piece because he thinks it is a little too hard edged for the video.

This stuff just comes to me and I play it like my mind hears it, I tell him! Thanks so much for listening, and for the nice comments - very much appreciated!

a treat
This is a blast. I like how it jumps around, but doesn't lose track of the theme. This is a track that I'll probably listen to a lot to try to break down what's going on and how you made it work. I can tell when a track is done well, I just need to learn how to do it myself! :).

well done
man! - this kicks off with both feet - you had me absolutely at the first measure. the heavy, dark guitar sounds cool against the other lighter voices. delightful piano with a wonderful light and delicate touch. that big thwacking drum is so appealing. excellent energy behind it all - imho, this is REALLY GOOD.

The joy of back-cataloging!

Nice build-up Sig. Then comes the riffing and the head-banging! (Oh the humanity! lol)

Nice early effort friend! Enjoyed!

Be well!

Your Productions Are Absolute and Final!
Such a sound you have my man. Too Cold and chilled on hot ice. Jam baby just jam. Funk emerges and my face frowns with the feel of your magic baby. Bad you are. Such a flavorful music mind rocked, jazzed, funked and moved always forward. Whew!*****
