Hey, you got a new one up! :)

And it's very nice, too.
It's cool how it seems to 'go somewhere', the little drum track suggests a pulse, the crescendi suggest the coming of a melody line. And then it doesn't happen. I picture some artist, sitting in a desert-type landscape, lots of wind, and he tries to make a song but whenever he comes up with a melody and sings it, it immediately gets taken by the wind and blown out of his memory.
Actually, that might give this tune some more diversity, if you'd add blurry shards of melodies that appear and disappear randomly. I think overall, the background could use some more 'sound static', it will definitely add to the feeling of desolace and give it a tad more spice.
I like that faint snare toward the end as well. I think qua percussion you don't really need to expand.
About our cd thing: I'm working on some remastered versions of the songs so it'll take a while longer before I send it, but eventually I will! In the meantime, I'm working on my next cd "Gospel for dummies". Just so ya know.

Thanks for the review! I'll have to work my way over to your page to see what new tracks you have put up in the ages since I've been on... I'm back on dial-up for the summer, so I'm not online as often as I'd like...
Anyway, it's interesting how the idea of this track going somewhere or not keeps being brought up... you hit the nail right on the head by saying "and then it doesn't happen," because this intro track actually leads directly into the second track, overlapping some new rhythms over the last 20 seconds or so of the end, leading into the beginning of the first song... I'm actually rather pleased with how it's turning out...
Looking forward to hearing that cd, and thanks again for the review!


cool sounds. i really like the general vibe of this trk, doesn't really go anywhere though, it should in my opinion. I like the hissy sounds, but think that they might sound better if they were more apparent.
Short, but interesting.

Thanks for the review!
I highly value your input...
I mean, seriously, you do some amazing work...
but anyway, I'm planning on adding to this... maybe a little, maybe a ton... but it was never really meant to go anywhere; it's just meant to be a nice little intro for my next cd... but who knows; maybe I'll put a full-track version somewhere in the middle, with more development... I hadn't even thought of expanding it... Thanks for the inspiration!
