Description
This mix is pure and simple, an experiment. I tried to blend and meld bells sounds with dol[hin-like noises.

Please let me know what you think and feel about the piece.

Hi Michael.......
Thanks for stopping by to listen to my little experiment.

Some of this mix is a change for me but the change is still a small one, for the moment.

The Zebra2 synth always does good bells. Maybe it's the power of the FM portions of this fantastic sound maker.

Take care.

Hi ShadowsOrca.....
Hearing Atlantis sounds good to me. It's good to know that a distant cousin to the dolphins can hear something that they can enjoy.

Take care.

Hi Kenta......
I never thought of this piece as suitable for meditation but I know what you mean, now I think about it.

Glad to hear that you liked the mix.

Take care.

Very nice Paul...
Obvious comparisons to Jarre & Vangelis (and I think Oldfield did ambient dolphins too!) - but this stands on its own.

Hi Daniel........
I can see the Vangelis angle but I don't know much about Jarre's music. This is something that I need to change.

Oldfield I enjoyed years ago, with the Exorcist sound track but his latest album seems very derivative to me. Maybe I should listen to the album again.

Take care.

Very dolphinish.
I think beautiful animals will become one of my favorite subjects for ambient. I don't know how you did this, but the beginning gave me visions of a group (herd? school?) of dolphins swimming along and jumping the way they do. Towards the end it sounded like things went more underwater, as if they stopped to dive, you know, to do their dolphinish thing down there. An effective experiment. Very clever indeed.

Hi.....
I put this together by choosing a programmable algorithm, tweaking it, then splitting the MIDI-out to 6 or 8 soft synth instances and by tweaking the sound presets of these soft synths until the blended stereo out sounded to my liking. The secret is not in the actual notes but in the way the preset's ADSR-envelope behaves when triggered. In other words change a preset, get a different soundscape with the same algorithm.

Take care.

It's good to hear from you. Hope you and your sister are well and still producing your famous sound.

I'm happy that you got something out of this mix. It makes the work putting mixes together so much more worthwhile.

It's been a crazy time here for me and I needed something to help me relax last night so I came to MJs looking and found this. I just sat at my computer and listened to it 3 times in a row. This is truly a beautiful meld of textures and tones, creating a gorgeous soundscape. A sound Escape. Thank you. Michael used the perfect words - beautifully shimmery. Yes.

Hi Kassia.....
If you had some enjoyment out of this then I am very happy. I never thought of this piece as having this type of potential effect on anyone but it gives me a buzz that it did.

I agree with you about what Michael said, above. Perfect description.

Take care.

I like the rising tones
like bubbles to the surface. The key shifts are also very smooth yet unpredictable. Excellent bit of experimentation.

Hi Bud.....
Thanks for having a listen to one of my experimental mixes. I strive to put together complimentary sounds to make a unique soundscape for people to exersize their imagination.

I'm glad you thought the transitions worked OK. I'm sure there will be more of these type of pieces.

Take care.
