Absolutely dreamy. I was swept up and away by the flutes and strings and grounded by the percussion. Just love it! (A day or two earlier, and I would have definitely included it in the latest episode of The Mixin’ Kitchen.)

SJ aint wrong, this is very dreamy. I love the low tone drones that the cello produces. You demonstrate a well produced mix that shows off your talent for emotional and cinematic soundscapes.

Thank you! Just doing the best I can and still think it could have been better if I had the skills of playing the cello myself ;-) Allways difficult to ‘imitate’ the real thing, but I hope I succeeded in creating the ‘illusion’ of it.

Wow…. What a great musical compliment you created. I’m truly humbled by this beautifully composed score. Makes me want to perfect the vocals to live up to the music. I usually don’t attempt to sing over my mixes, but you inspired me to make more tracks w/ vox. You’re truly gifted, keep up the good work….

Thanks for your kind words Neurowaxx. What counts is: you inspired me, I inspire you back ;-)
I will upload the instrumental version soon, so feel free…

Hello

I really love love this track !!! absolute and exquisite beauty…Thanks for sharing.
I want to use use it with a non commercial video. Are you even planning to share an instrumental version (because i am not sure all the lyrics match with the shots, not a problem in France where I live but it could be in the english spoken word like in vimeo) ? I would like to take only a part of the lyrics because i like the sound of the voice of Neurowaxx, it brings heat to the track…

One more high quality track, Geert, I really like your stuff. I was blown away by this one, seemed to stay in the center of a sorround soundtrack at the cinema. It’s classical, yes it is, yet there is some skill involved in learning the classic steps and applying them carefully.

Some skills, probably true, but it is reallly mainly a matter of creating an illusion. Thank you, Carosone, for your kind words!

In my previous review of “I am a stone”, I compared your music with Craig Armstrong scores. In this occasion I have to compare this remix with an extraordinary musician named Geert Veneklaas. Congratulations on this wonderful pearl. I have truly healthy envy what you´ve done.

Envy on ccMixter ;-? The good thing is: I enjoy your work as much as you enjoy mine! No surprise for someone who mentions King Crimson and Portishead among his favourites. Something we have in common! Congrats on your October 12 Ed Pick!

Truly beautiful and to me this has an epic, Irish/Celtic feel to it that is totally magical. xxxx

Absolutely beautiful, thank you Geert. We’ve made a small animation clip using your remix. We’re two beginning animation students in a College in Israel. I hope you like it…

Thanks for using this track from Neurowaxx and me. I really love your animation video! I always like it when the co-creation process of ccMixter is taken one step further by using it as music for a video. And your video is so cool! Nice work, thanks!

I have this song on my iPod. I find it beautiful, but I also listen to it a lot to analyze the build up of the orchestra’s tension. Question: a number of times the orchestral chorus seems to come in with a lot of power. How do you do that? Is that a reversed kick drum? It seems like you use a low frequency for that…

Hi Robin, thanks for listening and for asking!
The sound you refer to is really just a timpani roll. Cliché, but it works :-)

Timpani roll? Not a cliche to me. I’m gonna look into that. Is it a part of EW Symphonic Orchestra?
