Peacock


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Oriental sounding. It reminds me of the way a peacock moves about, but not of its cry, if you've ever heard one!

There are nine tracks in this, seven Zebra 2, one EXS24 pad and a Logic bass setting. And that's it. I hope you like it.

Peacock moves
Yes indeed, it make me thing of this too. It's a very nice piece of music, I enjoyed it very much and I'm happy having stopped by. Great work.

Well
that's all you need to make a beautiful musical peacock show.

But where do they come from originally? Sounds the slightest bit of oriental in parts. Oh, Wikipedia suggests India, so that figures. And yes your music does sound a lot better than the peacocks (again according to Wikipedia - where it sounds more like a cat). I bet you can't match their tail feathers though :-)

Thanks again for sharing,

/Henke

Thanks
Yes Henke, I hope it doesn't sound too much like a peacock cry. I didn't know they originally came from India, I always thought it was China, for some reason. They are used quite a lot in this country as "guard dogs" believe it or not, usually on farms or estates. Their cry is so loud it would wake anyone up, and put any would be burglars off!

Nice creatures, though the peahen is a fairly drab creature. Once more in the animal world, it is the male who is resplendent in his glory, and not the female. Seems to me that humans have things the wrong way around!

Cheers.

Nice combination of instruments to grab a multi-national feel. Love the melody lines intertwined.

Hi Dave....
Another gentle Ambient mix. Another one I enjoyed listening to. Another one well produced and thought out.

Take care.

Does have
that Oriental sound Dave and the spaciousness in sound that depicts wonderful mountainous scenes.... there is also a sound of 'pride' and beauty in this music, so that I can see why you named it after the Peacock with it's shimmering beautiful colours and it's slightly faltering gait. Lovely work, cheers M

I lived for a few years about half a mile from an urban farm and they had peacocks. Man alive, they were noisy creatures! They would wake me with their morning calls. But their gait and movement is quite extraordinary, I think. My little tune brought this to mind.

Thanks for dropping by and your kind comments!

Animated, poised, ethereal
I can really imagine a peacock walking around - calm, but constantly looking around and changing direction. The samples blend well and the track has a bright feel with a new nice flow to it. The interwoven melodies create a transparent and very pleasing sound carpet.
And yes, MUCH nicer than the cry of a peacock. Much less scary than your icon too :)

My icon?
That's my photograph, sir!

Seriously, very kind comments and I thank you. I may do a little remix on this as I am finding it just too bright, to be honest. Then again, I might not.

Thanks once more.

oh man
i have nightmares about peacocks. for the past 3 years I lived in a house in the woods and wild peacocks roamed those woods. i have never heard anything so loud or annoying as those darn peacocks.

but this, on the other hand, is not at ALL loud or annoying! a beautiful, slow, majestic piece. definitely oriental in flavor. i like it a lot - especially the high hits in the right ear and the occasional woodblock sounds. They add some very nice texture to the piece. Very well done Dave.

Peacocks
Yes. I can imagine your nightmares. I spent a couple of years having the bloody things wake me up at stupid o'clock. Every day! And I was up on the ninth floor of a high rise flat block too. The peacocks lived on a small farm the other side of a golf course my flat overlooked. Noisy! No wonder they're used as guard dogs.

Your comments, as ever, are extremely kind, so many thanks. :-)

Nice to wake up to
Not the peacocks -- this piece, I mean. Sounds like a Japanese morning song, crisp air, with that misty faraway. The deliberate "plucks" of the stringed instrument give it an authentic feel. Beautiful piece of work. And yes, humans do have it backwards. A recent study finds that, generation by generation, women are evolving along lines that humanity finds attractive, while men are pretty much staying the same.

Well, at least we aren't getting any uglier are we? Just growing older and more wrinkly, in my case.
