Description : Recently I decided to explore some darker themes for weeks to come (not counting possible collab
releases). This is the first one of a kind although it's not entirely on the dark side. I think it preserves that peculiar romanticism of mine, so I see it also as an atempt to mix and
balance the moods to give it a bit of uniqueness I guess...and don't bother about the genre...I just had to put it somewhere..:)^^
*UPDATE* 15th August 2015: I shortened the intro a bit to make it more concise and to maybe improve the listenability of the track as a whole!

    Seems as if I'm late to the party on this song! I felt the need to listen to this after hearing the one I just heard and commented on. It's strange, because when I arrived at your profile, this song was listed first, then I had to reload the page, and all of the sudden the other track was listed first. Maybe you were changing your track order when I arrived? Either way, this is quite interesting! I found it quite humorous that someone compared this to Skinny Puppy... I can only think it is because of the vintage sounding synth voices, because other than that I find it bears little resemblance to the Puppy, and I've been listening to them for about 20 years. Either way, it is good to get a reference point for the previous song I heard, and I can definitely hear why you wish this was the second in the series, and not the first. It feels like a "calm after the storm" sort of image to me. I'm happy that I am not alone in having imaginings of the devastation and tragic uplift. Your songs are always special to me. Faved as well!

    Reply by Orlando51 Hi again Spiv!

    Your experience about the tracks order is really unexplicable to me because I wasn't changing anything at that time. Maybe some naughty little dwarfs were at work on Looperman's site today...hehe...:)

    I really can't tell you anything about Skinny Puppy cause I haven't listen to them yet, but I trust your verdict and I'm sure my track can't have any significant similarities with them!

    You hit the nail on the head with "calm after the storm"
    and that's the major part of what was on my mind when
    expressing regrets about the running order. Now I'm even not sure if there will be any further tracks of this kind
    because I somehow feel the fulfilment of the mood I was planning to explore. Furthermore I don't want to fall into the grip of exageration with more of the same, so I will probably push a pause button on this particular collection and maybe supplement it at a later time!

    Thanks alot again for listening, for this kind comment and for the 'fav'!

    Orlando. Hello.

    I don't find this to be as dark as it is introspective. There are dark moments, yes. But any time you journey inward, you will find some darkness. Maybe I just see it that way because of my own state of mind as of late. Art, after all, is subject to the viewer, or in this case, listener. Ultimately, I find this to be very soothing and gentle.
    The piano couldn't have been more perfect here. It's presence brings a beautifully sad, but hopeful element.

    This is a fine piece, Orlando. Thanks you for sharing it.

    Take care.

    Reply by Orlando51 Hi mate!

    " Art, after all, is subject to the viewer, or in this case, listener."...I couldn't agree more! As a matter of fact the idea in my head was much darker than the actual result turned out, but im sure that my next track I'm
    preparing will show less discrepancy between the idea and
    the actual music.

    Many thanks for listening mate, and for this nice comment as well!:)

    Great piece.
    It is very big and powerful yet somehow touches me gently.
    Another contradiction in this piece is it sounds so sad yet so uplifting and full of hope at the same time.
    Going in the faves.

    Love the features in this track as a whole the cinematic piece of it all flows great with each other, this actually could be very well used as a rap instrumental also, could still spit versus on it as is but if you added drums which is not necessary, but if so it would be more traditional which I sometimes try to avoid anyhow because I love to stay in the game but have enough space where I can move... as to create more music in the same aspect of the genre I am trying to create... basically all you gotta do is keep ya head up like tupac said and every legend did.

    Upon further listens I fav'd and downloaded (ty). I think this is a tune that grows on you with time and you may have to be patient with people for this one. I agree with the Vangelis take on it from Marc, but you have a little touch of Phil Manzanera as well like this song called Europe 70-1.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAAVdtmXAMA
    About 1:29 in it has a sensibility (that moment always gives me a chill) like your tune does.
    I was playing some string chords and phrases along side listening to this one. Let it persist.
    Steve
    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 What a coincidence Steve....I just wanted to send you PM
    to at least say thank you for download and the 'fav', but then I saw your comment..:) Phil Manzanera...wow...I've always been a bit of Roxy Music fan, so your observation sounds great to me...also thanks alot for the link, I will check it out!
    And yeah...that 1:29 mark is probably the only reason I'm not removing the intro entirely which I'm becoming more and more embarrassed with....

    And in the end we come to the extra special compliment for me which is you playing along my tune....I'm hugely curious how this has sounded....:)

    In any case, Steve...big thanks for returning here with
    another comment and for all things mentioned above and foremost for all the attention you have shown for my latest work!:)

    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 Wow, my friend....the second comment already!:) I'm really honoured! Usually I don't pay much attention on second comments, but this time.....You probably have no idea how grateful I am this time for your repeated recognition
    because I have to confess you that I'm otherwise bitterly
    disappointed by relatively poor response on this work which I seriously
    consider one of my best (apart from that silly intro) if not the best yet! I will probaly have to accept the fact that majority of the people just don't have their
    antennas tuned to the message I'm sending....but on the other hand I'm really happy there are people who feel and know that music is not just about having big beats and
    rhythm....just like you my friend...and that's why yours
    sincere support appears even more precious to me....
    Big thank you for that my friend!:)

    Hi Orlando,

    as usual I have listened to this three times now and it just gets better, love the way you bring in subtle changes and the mix between the keys and pads is brilliant. Once again 6 and a half minutes fly past. Vangelis springs to mind with some of the sections which is even more awesome.
    fantastic work as always Orlando, this I have missed.
    best wishes and take care my friend,
    Mark

    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 Well, Wayne...I guess the idea in my head was much darker than the consequent result is, but I think I explained that a bit in the description. And yet you're absolutely right...I have to accept you as a listener and not as someone who would know in advance what's going on in my head...haha...yes there are moments which are even uplifting...you got a great point here !

    Awesome composition.After the mind tingle intro it opens up into a feeling of floating souls around the room,the tones just melt into one another,exquisite.The outro part just makes me feel somewhat sad and tearful,the feeling of loss that can never be replaced like the parting of my father.

    Very interesting selection of sounds. It almost like a dark ambient type of track in the beginning and as you go forward it morphs into something less erie and more cinematic almost like the background sounds in a documentary about space.

    the main event for me starts somewhere around 1:30 Orlando...big rich and a bit dark sounds in the intro and then the darker-mellow kicks in...nice big orchestral feel to it even though it is a non-traditional orchestra...you are the meistro of these picture-painting music scapes that keep us anticipating the changing flow of the musical journey...really like those piano bits you have in there my friend...great listening over this side of the planet...another superb piece of work...Ed
    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51 I'm not surprised you're mentioning 1:30 mark Ed, because everything prior to it (with possible exception of transition) is a pain in the ass to me and probably for the majority of my listening audience also! That intro is an absolute intruder, added after the main part was done which sounded to me too beautiful to be true, so I just had to do something to spoil it...haha...but seriously, in most cases
    I tend to add something disturbing within, or something that doesn't quite fit (probably a bit of an artistic caprice) and this time it was intro's turn. I'm just too mean (intentionaly) to keep things perfectly acceptable. Ofcourse I try hard to avoid that habit when doing collabs...haha...yet I have to admit that I was thinking alot to maybe remove/replace that intro, but one of my loyal angels (not lost) suggested me not to do so...ya know, he's a bit of a mean bastard too...:)^^

    Anyways, what else to say than a big thank you, my friend, for your continuous support and for keeping an eye on my shaky noise making experiments!

    See you soon along the road_______Orlando

Description : HEY, hey guys...IM BACK! and it feels amazing. I took a month or so off to work thru some shit, and in that time i bring you this. Personally my best work so far imo. I may add lyrics to it eventually, but not sure yet. The original has a longer beginning for that reason. Thanks to chanho17 for uploading great piano loops for use. let me know what you think!
Description : First off, I am a huge fan of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit." After watching all of the movies (including the final chapter of the Hobbit", I was motivated to write something that I thought might work with their journey home.

Samplitude has a couple of great new VST's, one called "World Flutes" and the other "Celtic Harp" and I used both of them in this song. I created every last note on this one. Guitars were all Fenders, soft synths besides the Samplitude items mentioned previously were created in the SynthMaster series by KVR, and the strings were created with Samplitude's "String Ensemble."

Not sure about the mix (my hearing is shot), so most of the mixing is done by sight instead of listening. If you hear something way out of whack, let me know. If you are interested in taking this one further, let me know and I'll post a link to the stems. Thanks to the Hobbit for the inspiration and to you for listening.

EDIT: I've had some requests for the individual instrument stems so here is the link to all of those files. The tempo is 80bpm. Feel free to do whatever you want with this one.

https://www.mediafire.com/?vzbi2scw8vc7cws

EDIT: I've had over 200 downloads of the stems, so if you have done anything with them it would be cool to hear it (thanks for the interest).

Ed provided the unfinished, basic track...I composed and recorded the long intro using different synths and then added piano (well to the fore) and some brass arrangements along the rest of the track (no violin this time...hehe) and then did the final mixing to wrap it up as it is presented now. I hope you will enjoy it and we both appreciate your listening time and your valuable comments:) Otherwise all thanks to Ed!

I know its a lot for a 17 years old boy to think about this type of things, but its me, and it cant be changed...
lemme tell you about story of the music...
first it starts from WorldWar2, one of the most sadly years for human. then after the war, you can see people are happy, kids are playing, but after some years, you can see the world is getting ready for the WorldWar3 and then you can hear the rest of the story in music...

In most cases I avoid using samples, loops or any other kind of pre-recorded material due to my strong preference of making music from scratch!

And here is the result...not necessarily cinematic...but you know..:)^^ Any comments appreciated!

Description : 1906 was the year of the largest emigration wave of Sicilians to America. Sicily, the cradle of mafia and vendeta, and the land of poverty. Why did I compose this? Coincidentaly, last week I was watching again all three "Godfather" movies after a long time (Marlon Brando is still my favourite actor), so I got an idea! The sentiment of leaving beloved homeland and family in desperate search for a better future is the key here to capture. Human heart in sadness but full of hope ! Mediteranean flavour mixed with almost classical elements prevails in this little extra offer. Not a cup of tea for everyone then...probably only for those who are able to survive all that orlandesque trumpery.:) It's a tricky one...ok?

Description : The song is meant to depict the weather here on the coast of Florida on a typical summer day. We often get the chance of severe thunderstorms and often tornadoes but the day doesn’t usually start that way. Light breezes and warm temps make for a great day until the storm hits and all hell can break loose!

I asked Dave if he would like to help with the bass guitar on this track and in return he essentially gave me two tracks. In the first part of the song he uses his new bass guitar in which he personally designed and built from blocks of wood. It has a beautiful jazz sound and really adds to the feel of a light breezy morning. In the second part of the song, Dave uses his Precision Fender bass to give the song a little more attack during the part with the storm kicks in. I used several instruments in Ableton’s orchestra pack and added plenty of live instruments. I used delay extensively in this track and even tried my slide on my electric guitar for the first time to represent the wind.

It was certainly a pleasure working with Dave on this track and he added an certain element with his style of playing and sound that goes beyond what I could've put down so I appreciate Dave's input immensely and I'm quite pleased with the track!

Enjoy!

Description : I had no particular intention doing this, but then it just came on me out of nowhere....How to make an antithesis Halloween work!? Prior to that there were no plans to make a track for the occasion, furthermore I've never been really interested in such a thing. It always seemed a bit silly to me if not outright childish. But then I remembered the Interview with The Vampire and Bram Stoker's Dracula. My gosh, there was some peculiar romanticism in there and I probably don't have to tell you twice that this must be a bait for Orlando, as is a cup of fresh young blood for a vampire...:) Furthermore I like people who are different, so I just have to like vampires who a different as well...hehe...so it should be dawning on you by now that this won't be your standard Halloween tune...haven't I mentioned "antithesis"? So...no growling zombies, midnight cemetery bells, creaking doors or any of your favourite horror sounds, although it's still a little bit darker in tone...hell yeah, vampires are still vampires...haha...but this one is mainly about a vampire desperately in love with a young lady, craving for her as a madman...I won't tell whether she's also a vampire or not, cause you might figure it out listening to the track...^^ Otherwise it was about time for me to come up with a new solo work, since I've been almost exclusively doing collabs in those past few months (which I love ofcourse)...afteral you can always ask Ed...:)^^____Happy Halloween folks!:)
