Very clever!

You've got a way of the Elfman about you! There's joy and wonder in your stuff but there's always an underlying darkness and a hint of menace. The orchestration is great, I love your voicing and the subtle dissonances in the back ground. The little china bell thing is a cheeky little touch, that made me smile;

"My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard,
And they're like, 'Ting' It's better than yours..."

I wouldn't know what to do with a timpani, but if I was to try, this would be what I'd like it to sound like so you may have just inspired me to use one... Nice with the MIDI toy too! That thing looks fun. You're on my favourites!

I had NO idea. . .

what an EWI was, acmeDyne---------->
I had to Google it in order to find out. I saw you mentioned it an all of your submissions. Hell, at the risk of sounding like a backwood's hillbilly, I had no clue they even had things like that. So, how's the control of things like pressure and stuff on those? Relatively close to the real things or what?

Back to your beautiful song though. . . It had such a light feel to it. I was really floaty sounding, like a fairy, or wind, a dandylion or even the soft texture of fur or something. There was a faint hint of fading in there to me. Sort of like how beautiful snow is, but you're sad because it won't last very long. So very delicate sounding. You are now one of my favorite musicians.
Thanks for sharing your talent with the people here, especially me.

.............Take care, be good and compose.period

The EWI is a blast to play. I was surprised at how well drums and percussion stuff work with it. Thanks.
