Hi Pat
Thank you very much for your nice comments, I take your point about the levels - mix could be better although the conversion to Mp3 degrades the sounds anyway.
Cheers
Spike

Very Vangelis with a healthy chunk of Enya thrown in, I loved it

Thumbs up Re: Sarahar - 18-10-2013, 06:36 PM

Very nice Spike,
and undeniably, a Vangelis thing going on there. I particularly like the hypnotic rhythmic figure that keeps the whole thing moving along.

Nice choice with the solo instruments too - with nice PBs at certain places. The pizz. strings suite the mood well and tail off nicely towards the end.

Variation in dynamics is often overlooked in the hunt for overall effect in a piece. You seem to have payed attention to this.

(I should do so MORE in my own stuff!).

I was lucky enough to sing (as a member of the English Chamber Choir) on "1492". It was a fun album to do - and was the last we did with Vangelis.

I am not familiar with the Tyros Range, though I hear good things about them in my other Forum. This piece of yours would certainly seem to back that up .

Best Regards

Hi Chris
Many thanks for your 'in depth' review - it's nice to have the opinion of a pro. This was all done with the Motif XS6 workstation. All the phrases were made as patterns which were then chained together to form the backing, this was then converted to 'song mode' which is the internal sequencer. Tracks for the main voices were then added after which it was mixed and effects added in mixing mode.
Glad you liked this little effort, thanks for your time.
Cheers
Spike
