Introducing the Flute-a-min!!!

It plays the lead melody throughout this piece. I made it using Sculpture in logic. As much as I would like to continue my illusions of instrument- making grandeur it sounds like a slightly dirtier/more metalic version of a piccolo. Or indeed a Theramin...

I was inspired by videos of the xbox live game of the same name. It's a dark and atmospheric game if you haven't seen it. Spooky elements within a good puzzle/adventure game but it doesn't have much music! So this is my idea of what should be the theme for "Limbo".

I'm in a bit of a hurry, but I just wanted to tell you that this is incredible.
Great job.

Shellac responds:

Thank you buddy! Pleased to meet you. I'll check out some of your stuff in a bit...

Hauntingly beautiful.

I really love the melody, and the instrument you created is PERFECT for it. Very expressive "performance" - I almost expected to hear someone taking a breath in certain spots!

There's a sweet depth to the overall sound- the intimacy of the melody, harp and low string voice contrasts nicely with the ambience of the guitar and the cool panning sound that comes in at 1:25ish.

Love the harp at 2:18, the pizz. bass at 2:34, and especially the intensity at 2:51 that gives way to the quiet, "hanging" sensation of the final seconds. Great ending!

By Jove, I think you've created yet another masterpiece!
Color me impressed.

Shellac responds:

Acmedude! Thanks for the glowing review. I want to turn this into a full on orchestrated mother very soon. Sounds like cubase is treating you well!
