Brilliant piece of music.

I really enjoyed how it slowly subsides near the middle only to build back up again. Everything sounds nice & crisp.

This is so good...very deep and powerful. I love the build up, and then the slow down. The melodies are beautiful. Nice work.

Hi Jon,
i really enjoyed listening to this wonderful track, my favourite of your songs so far. The pads and piano harmonise pretty good, the build up comes in handy and the melody sounds beautiful to me.
So it seems that your new toy Avenger can give you some kind of inspiration as well....
The mix sounds flawless on my stereo and headphones. Good job, mate :thumbup:

Thank you guys for the listen and the kind words. I'm glad you liked it :)

Oliver, thank you .. New synths are always a good source of inspiration for me, flicking through the presets until something jumps out which I can tweak and then start building into a piece. I'm sure this is a backward method of composition! :)

Thanks again
Jon

Nice one, Had to re-listen to the start as I thought that it missed a little tad more verb but reconsidered after the second pass as I got what you were after there on the second pass.
Thanks !

I thought this was beautiful and very deep. If this is just a draft it is very good.

In the first 35 seconds, I felt like some of the instruments could be tightened. If these are MIDI it's easy enough to go in and adjust the timing. I'm not suggesting perfection, mind you, just enough to tighten some of the looseness. Also the transition into the next section needs something. My initial inclination is to suggest stretching out that last chord and inserting a wash or rise, but there are probably equal or better solutions.

I like the drum sound quite a bit and the way they fill everything out. The song itself is gorgeous. I'm very glad I got the chance to listen to it.

Really nicely done Jon. Nothing to add really other than, if that synth was a new purchase, it was a good one! ;)

Thank you guys for the listens and the feedback :)

I did consider tightening up the timing but in the end left it as played to try and get a more 'casual' feeling. As you can probably tell, my keyboard skills are a little lacking :oops:

I've only scratched the surface of Avenger, I think it's going to be a good investment!

Thanks again

Very polished and relaxing tune. I love when music tells a story, and this accomplished that well.
