"Icarus - Above the Sea" is my second entry for "Mac8 - Oct Flight In Freedom"

personnel:
Mihai Sorohan - trumpet, keyboards, bass and drums programming,
Bogáti Bokor Ákos - acoustic guitar
Orosz-Pál József - piano

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
acoustic guitar - Hora

This for some reason (flying, sea, seagulls and idea of freedom) makes my wife to think more of Jonathan Livingstone ... oh well, I'll have to let you, I have a flight to catch :)

Excellent !

This is a beautiful song, there's not a single part of it I didn't enjoy. The synths are also well arranged and mixed into the track. The melody is beautifuly composed and I liked the seagulls and the ambiental sounds because I think they add to the overall vision. This is one of the best tracks on Newgrounds.

nice jazzy song

this is such a good jazz song i really like the saxophone part the most, the piano part was done very well, the drums and the transitions were done perfectly, take out the seagull part then it will be perfect. other than that i'm giving you a 10 out of 10 because it was a nice catchy jazz tune, and 5 out of 5 for doing such a perfect job on this song

Beautiful.

I can't for the life of me, understand what possesses the idiots of newgrounds to 0 bash this. Its beyond ridiculous.

That being said, this is absolutely beautiful. From beginning to end.
I love that someone as pro as you, puts your work on this site.
Thanks man. You rule.
