Very nice. You consistently avoid the trap of overdoing glitch elements and keep your work light and full of air.

Really nicely done. Excellent production. My only complaint is that it’s too short.

Too short, I hear you Colab… I guess its better to leave people wanting to play again than lose their concentration (long notes do that to a person) :-)

Thanks for your great comments.

Yes, this is very beautiful and way too short. But I rather have three minutes of beauty than 17 minutes of dreadfulness.

Very nice indeed. I cross my fingers that you some day pick it up to make an extended version.

Ok, 3rd person pro ‘longer’… Seems I’ll need to get back to the workshop for a longer edit :-)

Thanks Mullion!

Id love to hear this with out the drum loop while shes is calling out to him and sliding around in ambience hes trying to fix his Cortina timing problem.

You are on a roll though. Back to work soon…

Cortina hey… You on the beer again LS?

‘Sliding around in ambience’ - Great line

Yep very ambient indeed.

I love the bass sound, you have so much space in the bottom so you use a sequence, and I like that texture.
I don´t like very much the piano, is so lonely and dry in the musical space, maybe I would liked the sound of a softer piano, when you play softly the piano gets more body in the sound, more according to the ambience of the song. for my taste.

Hey Thanks for your comments Durden. I hear you regarding the piano, you’re spot on regarding the softer note having more body.

The current piano notes do have slight reverb and subtle bounce delay applied, but I can appreciate how that seems lonely in the mix.

Myself, provided the right level of long decay reverb is added, I prefer the higher octave piano, i think with it sharing space with more midrange instruments, i wanted to have it appear higher in the frequency range so that its not getting disguised by the drums and pads.

With the piano notes being sparse and are panned slightly, I agree this brings attention to their loneliness :-) Which thinking about it supports the theme of yesterdays love (being no longer the case and loneliness is setting in), ok so now I’m just rambling, but a little more reverb and slightly softer notes could be the answer.

Thanks again Durden

A very smart mix…. sounds to me like u are experimenting with new sounds and rhythm patterns… Keep on that!

Very romantic and sad. Perfect for a winter’s day.

Nice textures and really silent atmosphere. I think Durden said some right things about the piano. It has for me sort of leading theme and so it could have been a bit louder or more present (in the middle?), but this is only my 2 cent (or how do you say?)… ;-)

just found this and yes, too short, but oh so divine.
