Description
I composed the song after I met a big octopus diving near Ustica, a small island near Sicily (Italy). I was impressed by its slow and elegant movements. I hope the music resembles that nice situation...

Octopus
Gentle, optimistic, innocent. A few notes off the scale, but sounding nice anyway. Then the octopus goes into action at around 3 minutes. Like that groove, with the voices.

This
is right up my alley! Yes, indeed. Some, as Ex states, slightly misplaced notes on the guitar perhaps, nothing that you couldn't fix, I'd say. And maybe I'd have brought it back in the mix a tad, or used some reverb/echo/delay, for that "underwater" effect. The voices are gorgeous, as is the kora sounding instrument you've used. Wonderful interpretation of a wonderful creature. Really nice, and I've taken a download, thank you.

BTW, I once bumped into a pair of cuttlefish while diving in a cave in Gibraltar. I don't know who was more shocked, them or me! Whatever - it was a splendid sight.

octopus
As a diver, too, I can really appreciate the intention behind this. On one of my first night dives with my instructor in the Cayman islands I played with an octopus - slipping in and out of my BC - up and down my arms (I know, don't touch the wildlife - but it actually approached and interacted with US first if you can believe it (now that I've been diving much longer I can hardly believe it happened myself) Anyway, tis song is killer cool. Just like the octopus, one of natures wonders.

When I was a teenager I studied piano and guitar and I played in a garageband group with school friends (but nothing really serious). Recently I discovered that I could join my old love for music with the more recent interest in computer technology. ... [see more]
