Take a rest in the night after climbing the highest mountain, watch the distant oceans and continents you still have to cross


First off, I made the rhodes' note progression you hear in the beginning and end of the song quite a while ago. I saved those four bars in case I could use it for another project- and 3 weeks ago, I could continue it. Finally had the inspiration to continue those four bars- and this song is what grew onto it. It was a pretty heavy project file (15 instrument channels, 35+ fx devices), so mixing it was a hell. Made with Reason and Logic rewired. 3 weeks spent on this.


So this songs has some interesting main instruments: Deep rhodes, powerful, huge drums, weeping lead, soaring flute, ethereal choir, subtle bass and a very emotional plucky synth.

Kicks off around 0:27. Sounds best when played loudly.

Really liked the deep rhodes sound, what did you use to make them ? The intro made me expect something different. But this was a pleasant surprise, i like the drums. You used the samples real good. Great Job.


Buoy responds:

For the rhodes I used Logic's EVP88 Electric Piano synth with a bit of compression, EQ with a bass boost and much reverb :)

Thanks for the review!

Really liked that epic sound resinating all accross the song. Would make a good background track in an important part of a movie. Great retro feel and really liked all the variance like every second it seemed, great job

There was something, don't know what though.

- Good stuff -
Are really peacful intro and then everything was slowly added at the perfect times and there wasn't any over-powered notes. Those 3 weeks were very well spent. There was a wide range of everything that is needed an ambient song and it has it all and it's all spread out perfectly. I must agree with everyone here it is very claming I was waying my head and doing rhythmic typing on the keyboard. It very slowly slowed wona dn calmed me down more. I was very sleep at the time and this didn't help! :p

- Bad stuff and improvments -
...Well ummmm.... you see. I tried to find one.

This track has the fine qualities of longevity, imagination and great presentation. Yopu've paid great attention to detail and must have spent a good long while arranging this.

3 weeks is an amazing figure of time spent, to give such a wonderful, calming piece. Very Zen, I must say.

Where do you get your inspiration from? Do you just go out there and grab a few random instruments in the music program and mess around until you find a base sound that you like, then develop it? Or do you get the idea in your head for something as massive as this tune, then get it down onto the computer ASAP?

Good length, a great way of showing some vivid imagery in my mind, as I've got quite a few pictures swimming around my head right now. Most of them involve diving to about 2-3 metres below the surface of the Mediteranean and swimming amongst the coral reefs.

Buoy responds:

Where I get my inspiration from, varies, but either I'm just playing with a music program- then suddenly play the right melody or note progression with the right sounding instrument, then build on it- all my 08 songs so far are a result of that. For this one, I just picked up an old project.

Most of my favourite own songs are the result of a burst of inspiration from somewhere else- a song I'm making now for example, is a result of spring coming to Norway- It was a very sudden change from winter, and the burst of inspiration I got from simply looking outside, had me write a big chunk of a song in few hours.

Stupid rambling galore ;D

Thanks a lot for the review!
