3. Moonflower, I: Bloom

Part one of a wordless lullaby. Moonflowers (Ipomoea alba) only bloom at night, when no one is looking at them.

I like the sense of wonder and majesty at the beginning. The reverb is really heavy, but that adds to the mystery and divinity of the piece. The delicate stringed instruments in the background at :45 sound amazing. I also like the slightly darker tone of the piece by 1:15 or so. The piece certainly comes full-circle by the end, but it still sounds a tad ambivalent, as if the flower shed its petals as quickly as they had once opened. Either way, haunting work here, Miyo. ^^

i'm really glad your takeaway was "haunting." a lot of people have told me that this one sounds peaceful or happy but i personally think it's quite sad & full of longing

thank you for the many perceptive reviews. they are all very kind and accurate and i appreciate them

I really enjoyed the swells in this. It makes me picture sun rays coming down from a cloudy sky. So majestic and calming. It has so much ambiance to it. I really don't know what to think other than "yes please".

A very pretty melody that would come right out of a magical garden.
