A very atmospheric and beautiful piece Ian, superbly arranged and produced to your usual very high standard, thought you should have lost the piano at 2mins for around 20 secs and I reckon it should have ended at 3.30, for me it would then be perfect…

best, Kevin

very nicely done

Nice tune. Atmospheric. It was pleasure to listen :slight_smile:

Really, really nice. Lots of influences in there, all coming together as a whole.
Neil

Yes, your suggestion does have some merit… I must admit :slight_smile:

Thanks for the listens and comments gentlemen :slight_smile:

Enjoyed, this, Ian. You make the most of your sounds. Well mixed too.

Just beautiful, and very East meets West (if that makes sense). My only complaint is that the erhu (or whatever it is) near the beginning and in the right channel is a bit loud/bracing. But… my word – strings sound incredibly real. What library is that? I suspect it’s the excellent orhesstrating that’s making them sound real, Sh!t, maybe they ARE real for all I know :sunglasses:

As an aside, I often listen to the “Soundscapes” channel on my cable TV’s music offerings, and this is better than just about everything I hear on that

Thanks! :slight_smile: Glad you enjoyed this one.

Doug, would you believe the strings are actually Garritan… one of the cheapest libraries out there! :smiley:

I deliberately went for the ‘East meets West’ vibe. I could probably have written it more Eastern by opting for pentatonic but I really just preferred to write the way I usually do and then just add Eastern (Chinese) flavours into the mix.
