Description
This is an ambient piece with a bit of a rocking part in the middle. It's got my first attempt at a keyboard solo. Still tweaking it/mixing it, just looking for some reactions here. Enjoy!

Interesting
Prog Archives eh? It was through them I discovered PFM. Their last instrumental album
Stati di Imaginazone has passages in a similar vein to this. An enjoyable listen. Cheers Mark

Excellent
Nice one Mike. You always have a heavy underlying groove to your songs. Nice composition. The mix sounds pretty good so far; I hope that you post the final.

nice...
Although the drums seemed a little loud/repetitive in this mix in the middle, the overall piece is great, sweet soundbed and synth lines. Real warm mix. Almost feels like it needs cars driving by on wet city streets near the end. Nice!
ttfn,
Drakonis

drums
I'll look into changing up the drums in the middle and working on their levels. I seem to get a lot of people saying that my stuff resembles driving or late nights in the city. Thanks for listening!

Great Production
The mix is outstanding. Your choice of synth sounds is excellent. the drum track rocks. The whole arrangement builds nicely. I love the electric piano that enters at 2:35. I don't know much about this style of music. But I know I like this.

Glad you found the mix and production pleasing. I'm a huge synth sound nerd--always looking for that perfect sound. I'm somewhat new to ambient music myself (typically my stuff is more in the prog rock vein) but I found it to be a fitting term for this song, and I don't think you need to be an expert on any genre to know if you like it or not! Thanks for listening, glad you liked it!

Dream Pretty Things
Dreamy, spacy vibe here. When the drums kick in it is a nice contrast. Samples chosen complement each other well. Drum changeup in the middle keeps things interesting. I think this would work well as a movie soundtrack

Glad that you like the drum work on this one. I started mostly with samples (the ones from ezdrummer) but I also tweaked them extensively to make them fit just right. I like the soundtrack idea too--I'd love to try and write one. Thanks for listening!

Nice stuff
I've come back to comment. This is really nice, great soundbed. I think the percussion seems a bit far back in the mix, kicks and rides/crashes are rather quiet, imo, but the drum track[s] are very well constructed. Maybe try doubling some of the tracks to up the volume. The synth voices are really sweet and all blend well. A really nice tune and yes, I agree about late night driving/in the city comments!

I believe I've got the levels all worked out in my latest mix. I was having a lot of trouble with levels initially because there's so many tracks (especially with the drums), but I think I've got it all worked out now. Thanks for stopping by!

Great Build
I like how this layers and builds. The quiet refrain at 3:30 is a nice change too.

Layers
I was aiming for a continuous layering and building type thing; I'm glad you enjoyed that. Thanks for listening!

It is one thing
to dream of pretty things but quite another more valuable gift to share what you hear in your head with others. I think it is a lovely excursion into past sounds... revisited now, with a welcoming embrace. ( I don't know where this is coming from but I hope I'm making some sense.) Thank you.
