Nice atmosphere to this one but I am feeling the steel grey skies of winter and wishing there was a little more in the background here. I need a fairly simple project for my little keyboard and my small collection of vsti’s, maybe this is the one. Reminds me of my honeymoon in Southeast Alaska.

I agree with you on this one. I think that the background needs a bit more heft. Perhaps an underlying drone would hve worked, or some samples with a contrasting sound.

Very nice atmosphere, always so delicate and pastoral.

Elegant and with a charming simplicity - your music often makes me think of Henry Thoreau.

Not only do your pieces somehow remind me of Calder mobiles, you’ve always got really elegant descriptions- I always appreciate the piece more if I read them.

I love Calder. What a neat image.
I’m glad you like the descriptions—to me, they are part of the whole experience of the work.

A sweet, calming and yet mysterious mood you set here. Nice work like always G.

Thanks, J. I love that little electric piano sample you uploaded. In hands more skilled than mine, it could be an amazing synth voice.

really lovely tone poem.

That’s a better title, I think, and Summer serves as such a nice metaphor for home. Thank you.
