Hi Pam
Belly nice music You got the flavour right although a few more bells would have fitted in nicely, belly dancers have bells tied to just about everything
Tried it once but fell off!
Very good composition Pam.
Cheers
Spike

Hi Pam.

Nice to hear some more diverse styles.

Good light hearted performance, although there were a couple of "fill ins " at the beginning, that made me think someone was knocking at the door

Another fun composition from the Pam stables !

Regards
Gordon

Hi Gordon, Thanks for the feedback, the fill ins were where she was thrusting her belly out, just wish I could do it...Pam

Hey Pamela...

This is good, different from your other pieces. It moves along well.
The key changes really keep your interest peaked..

The first break is perfect. I like door knocking fills..On first listen, the last fill (1:38) sounds a bit abrupt. But after listening to it 3 times, the break flowed by smooth. Funny how your attention shifts, on repeated listening to a song..

The last break at 1:38 and the ending have a similar quality, with the violin emphasing the rhythm with the drums.. Perhaps you might consider moving that last break earlier, so there is more time between them.

I often find in my own work, after several listens, that I have put some breaks too close together and/or they are too similar. Depending on the structure of the song 4 or 8 bars is good. If they are closer, you might want to add something else, a bass fall, string hit etc.

Your choice of using the acoustic guitar playing at the beginning is great. It might be nice to expand that in length and let the guitar come back midway and possibly at the end. This would create a greater sense of 'completion'.

I noticed in working with OTS, that if you leave one pad playing, you can select another set of pads, so that you can end up with 4 different instrumentation pads in one style.. And this gives you the ability to create more variation.

Concluding.. this is a really good effort. The rhythm of the drums, and bass keep 'chugging' which is very hypnotic.. Keep up the GREAT work..
