A happy song for people that like this kind of stuff. That final dissonant note at the end was added to feign artistic integrity, I'm so edgy. I'm playing a little bit more with brass instruments, always forget they exist.

EDIT: Since this is front page I'll add some deets. The photo I used for the tiny disc icon is my mother. She took her life sometime shortly after that picture was taken and it's probably one of the happiest photos I've ever seen of her. She went fishing off of Long Island on a clients private boat. It was her first time fishing and she managed to catch a fish that was almost as large as she was.

I can't say I don't understand why people take their own lives but if you ever find yourself thinking about it, reach out to a friend or better yet a professional. I admitted suicidal feelings once in my early 20's to someone I thought was my friend and they reacted with disdain. It can be a sensitive topic, so go with the pros and call the suicide hotline if you feel you have no where else to turn.

Nice work!
I have no constructive criticism to offer you!

Quarl responds:

Thanks Mr. Shunt. It's refreshing to hear that every once in a while.

Hey buddy,
Your productions have come a long way since the olden days. A joy to listen to.

Quarl responds:

Thanks so much. Watching people progress is one of my favorite pass times here. I never diss anyone knowing that with a little encouragement they could become the next jazz master.

fell in love as soon as i heard that melody, awesome work dudette

Quarl responds:

Glad you liked the melody my dude :)

Me gustó mucho el inicio de la canción

Quarl responds:

gracias mia amata

Very emotional and expressive track. After reading the description I can definitely feel the feelings that went into every sounds and melody. The instruments feel very mellow and relaxing and form a great accompaniment with the bass and percussion, and the change in tempo near the end was great! The high end of the percussion sounds a little harsh though; maybe tone it down in a future mix?

Quarl responds:

I tend to go high amplification on the drums, might be hearing loss. Sounds alright in my sennheiser HD 650s and my Fender Passport Event system. I noticed the high freqs on my phone though, sorry about that. I need to remember to master for everything :(

EDIT: was just listening to this with my wireless JBL charge 3. Something really killed the mix somewhere for these monitors.

I need to invent some kind of unified sound standard that all companies must adhere to from now on. Diversity in equipment is such a hassle.
