Very interesting Gurdonark! You took your time with this one and made a piece of art.

Nice job. :-)

Thanks, Diane. In my mind, your vocal deserves a rich “The Sound of Philadelphia” soul strings version—but so far, I can’t get the song in my mind into a workable mix. So I went from what I imagined doing to what I could do—and this is the modest result.

Thanks again for posting your a capella.

well, the vocoder is quite nice, but it doesn’t seem to fit well with the rest.

I was originally pleased with the vocoder (a Magix version), but as I listen to it, I think I should tinker with it a bit to get the sound more easily understood. I also would break the vocal up into more pieces, and may do so yet.
Thanks for your kind words.

From now on you shall be known as Gurdonark, Imperious General Advocate of Trance, Ambient and Other Lovely Noise. Another high class ambient effort! Despite the sharp variations, everything seems to flow well from one point to another. Quite the patchwork quilt of sound. By the by, I take this in a somewhat religious manner … perhaps best explained as a portrait of the states of delusion/inspiration/enlightenment during the sufi’s dance or the rasta’s session.

This track sounds lovely to me. I was very pleasantly surprised with the vocoder section.
Simply a marvelous ambiant dreamy piece of work.
