NICE! I pictured panu, dressed like Pavarotti, singing on a grand orchestral stage with the entire symphonic orchestra behind him.

In that case, I succeeded ;-)

Unusual concept, Panu with strings. It works though. Somehow, surrounded by all that lushness he sounds even more alone. Orchestral blues. I like it.

When you manage to get those southern gentlemen in front of an orchestra, magic is created. Come to think of my all time favourite Gregg Allman song, ‘Oncoming traffic’ with Gregg, a piano and a string orchestra. And now this…even better.
I wish I could do music like this.

Gorgeousness off the scale! What a brilliant idea - all those beautiful, rich, lush sounds washing over Panu’s very warm and moving voice. Yep, it’s brilliant. xxxx

It’s just such a nice pella. It moved me too while working with it. Doesn’t happen often.
Thanks SackJo!

Reminds me of Bach’s Mattheus Passion. These violins and wind-instruments sound very good. Together with Panu’s voice it’s very sad and beautiful. Which device or software did you use for the orchestra?

Thanks for your kind words :-) For the orchestral sounds I use a VSTi plugin from East West, called Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra.

Just heard this in AnchorMejans’ podcast. Lovely strings, (heartstrings?) for a sensitive ballad from Panu moon. Thanks.

I had missed this, but heard it this morning in Anchor’s podcast, and I’m SO GLAD I did. This actually might be my favorite Panu remix…which is definitely saying something. Thank you so much for this wonderful piece of music.

Thanks so much. This wonderful piece of music inspired me to try out a completely different approach to making a song. And it worked wonders for me.
