Contemporary piece with a cinematic-ish approach. Blend of african instruments and the traditional orchestral goods.

S3C responds:

I had to youtube that artist after continuously hearing that name float around the internet. I must say, they have some amazing experimental music. Awwww shucks thanks alot for the comparison, I take that as a massive compliment!

Oh, this is nice.

I like African instruments. Or ethnical instruments in general. It gives the music a certain flavor. This wasn't just African instruments though, was it? It sounded somewhat Indian as well, in some parts. The sitar, mainly.

Oh, in some parts I think it sounds... empty. Like there's missing something. It might just be me though. I like.

S3C responds:

thanks! sensitive ears hear (pun intended) I see, indeed I used more than African instruments. I wanted to instill some "dryness" into the track with a grainy sounding plucked instrument. My first thought was a Kora, but I doubt I could find one anywhere- I think the tamburas (similar to a sitar in sound :P) worked well enough for what I had in mind. I also threw in some panpipes which is indigenous mainly to South America, to my knowledge. I needed a tribal sounding instrument that could sustain the main melody. Then there's cabassas and timbales to carry out small percussion parts which are used primarily in Latin music.

thanks for your comment athius, i like this review!
