I have to be honest i sometimes find your music hard to lock into but this is great.

Asian flavours wrapped up in a Yes type atmosphere.

You have you lead vocal sounding like the treatment and feel of Jon Anderson .

Nice rickshaw ride.

Thanks LS. I’ve always been a big Yes fan - saw them live in the early 80’s. I can’t approach the tonal or rhythmic complexities they induce, but they are certainly an influence.

Mandoline sounds asian and the beautiful voice effect too. It reminds me of east journeys so long ago.
Computer drums look chaotic, like those generated by a crazy generative software that can transform a jpeg image into a midi pattern (I played one month with the ArtSong demo I found on Computer Music Magazine 2-3 years ago, and I did the same kind of drum tracks as I hear here), or did you program the single hits by hand one by one? If 2nd chance, you must be a very patient person!!

I have a few effects that generate random patterns from jpg images - I know what you mean. In this case, they are real drums (sampled) that are randomized and sync’d to the BPM - it’s an interesting effect that I use occasionally.

Thanks for the review.

I have always liked your work but felt that there was always the last piece of the puzzle missing.

Your last 4 or 5 mixes have discovered that piece and you are creating some great mixes.

Always a great listen and now even better!

gorgeous piece, Mr. B. sound, timbre, & performance on the music are top-notch & a totally unexpected combination. but with all that good stuff goin’ on, you support SackJo’s vocal perfectly. i’m impressed.

The mandolin is lovely, delicate and persuasive, engendering a variety of associations throughout the richness of this track. Another treat from the big B, indeed. I am so pleased my pell gets to be part of this luscious mix. As always, thank you.

Intricate, delicate and truly beautiful. Plus it’s invariably a pleasure to listen to SJ22’s lovely voice.

Great job B, the mandolin creates a lovely texture with the vocals. L
