"Sunlight Walking Through Dusty Air" :.

Sunlight walks through creases of venetian blinds. Parasitic particles of dust ponderously meander with casual thought; as if unaffected by gravity.
-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.

We're all dust.
Floating on.
We do not stop for anyone.
Sunlight walks.
And you. Just you,
and me, we fall,

-. -. -. -. -. -. -. -.

(The end of this song is the lead in of another song: "In Submerged Light".
There is also a parallel track: "Moonlight Walking Through Misty Air" which you may enjoy as well. Dig in.)

really interesting.

"interesting" often translates to "i don't like it," but in this case, i genuinely find it interesting - melding sounds that result in something new and different for the senses.

Lapse responds:

Thanks man, It really does mean a lot to hear that, especially for one of my songs that is this early in my experiments. I totally get your interesting vibe. I could be optimistic but, sometimes I like to think describing something other than "interesting" means . . "I'm getting something from it. But, I'm not sure how to feel about it just yet."

Thank a lot for listening.

Nice and chill.

I can dig it. I can dig it hard.

Lapse responds:

Ohh yeaaah.


leave NG and never come back :p

Third track I hear now and I just saw you made a massive music library in one year. Did you make all that in one year? cause that is kind of hard to believe unless you do this for a living :)

Anywayz. Not gonna give it a ten cause something seems missing. Some parts of the track sound like a background track to something. but that something is not there.

Also I found a flaw in the mixing ( FInally) haha. There is a lot of low mids int he mix. If you were to put an EQ on the master bus and put a so called Smile EQ on it. I think it will sound a bit more delightfull. Try taking down 500 Hz for about 2 or 3 dB with a Q factor of 0.5. That should do the trick.

Lapse responds:

Haha. Aw, leave NG? I probably should.

I did not make that all in one year. Most if it yes. Some of my earlier submissions are from 2 - 3 years ago.

Something missing? Not sure what. Its just supposed to be a light and airy song. Minimal and such.

As far as the mix goes - i actually have a remastered version of this up. Check it out : P

I appreciate your in depth reviews - its really awesome. You seem to know a lot more about mastering then i do, too. I'm going to look for this 'smile EQ' as well. When you say i have a lot of low mids in the mix, heh, im not even quite sure what you mean. I understand what low mids are, but i'm not sure how it effects the product? Check out the remaster and see if i fixed it!! : D

(i went back and listened to the remastered version - i think i know what you mean - i just probably cant state it as clearly as you do, haha. I think it may be fixed. The low-mids muffle up the track a bit, yes?)


Dust is what we will become but in the mean time i think we should float on even when were not dust just to give us something to do

Lapse responds:

thus is life - you should listen to the remastered version!


This is really an excellent track, good work on it. This would fit well within an animation or something.

Lapse responds:

Thanks man, I'm glad you like this. That'd be cool to see it used in a nice animation of sorts. Something nice and tranquil for sure.
