Very exciting! I most certainly feel like I am immersed in a blockbuster thriller. Bravo!

Well done, sounds great. Very cinematic.

I wish you would share your samples/stems whenever possible. (I wish everyone would but I think it a lot on listening to your uploads. Always high quality stuff.)

Many thanks for your support.

Over the years I have amassed a huge library of instruments, samples and the like which I use in my compositions. Most require updating at some point so the investment continues long after the initial purchase. Whilst I still use the “big guys” stuff I find myself using a lot of the new kids on the block and you will find some great product out there. What all of them ask is not to share the samples outside of them being used in a composition as this obviously eats into their sales. This is something I feel they have a right to ask as they try to go forward producing better and more realistic product. So to offer out samples from my mixes seems to me to be going against there wishes which is something I do not wish to do. I do occasionally upload the odd sample which is from something I have created myself or with others I work with who are happy to do so. Sorry to be negative but hopefully you can see my point.

Ah, OK, I get it now. Obviously if they’re not your samples you can’t share them. I guess I made some incorrect assumptions. Sorry ‘bout that.

Ok no problem. I used to think that as I create the part from their samples and adjust them and play them across the keyboard then they are mine as they take on a new life. Later I realised that despite this the samples are still really those of the person who first put them together. If you take this piece with its repeating double bass track is it mine to give away or is it still that of the sampler as he created the original sampled notes from a real double bass ??

If you’re cutting/pasting/manipulating partial sample phrases I see your point.
But if you’re playing individual notes, creating phrases, on the keyboard, aren’t you then creating original material? I mean - how can somebody own individual recorded notes?
But then, I read the other day of some entity that copyrighted the word the. So what do I know.

a stirring, very emotional and sensitive remix.

yesterday, while talking to my mother on the phone, i was watching a quiz show and learned that the author of moby dick was advised to take the whale out of the novel.

a blasphemy, because it was only because of the whale that moby dick became what it is. a novel from the 19th century that was a hit in times of missing cinemas, tv, and not to forget the internet.

so it is here too, the dark trombones and the hard exquisite e-guitars would only be half as good without the screams of joy of the whale that could also be called king as a truck of the sea. and then the divine female opera voice.

by the way, the beat reminds me of bladerunner or other steam or cyberpunk stuff.

truly truly. a masterpiece.
