"Icarus - Dream of Flight" is made special for "Mac8 - Oct Flight In Freedom"

This is first Mac I participate in, for the first time is a theme that was always triggered my imagination.
Since I was a kid I was dreaming of flying but never had a chance to be the next Superman or at least an astronaut :(
The name of the track comes from Greek mythology, Icarus, commonly known for his attempt to escape Crete by flight. Overcome by the crazy feeling that flying gave him, Icarus soared through the sky curiously, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which burned his wings.
Well, the track have a happier ending, no fallyng ... just flying to freedom.

Tune written in Bb mostly in Lydian mode, tempo 136 bpm. Start with an orchestral part, goes to a piano "balad-ish" part as a bridge to the next part, a jazz improvisation on the theme in a open Latin groove with a Jungle feel.
Influences:
John Williams
Vince Mendoza
Pat Metheny

Gear used:
sequencer - Reason (bundle with my soundcard)
midi controler - M-Audio Radium 49
soundcard - M-Audio Audiophile Delta 192
mixer - Behringer Eurorack UB1204FX-Pro
microphone - Shure C607
trumpet - Amati ATR213
Effects added in FL demo version and rendered to wav.
Reverb and Compressor from Antress free plugins.
Choir free soundfonts from Papelmedia.

Enjoy

ahh...

This reminds me of runescape, but I hate runescape, but this was a great feeling especially when you're in an airplane.
