Description : I'm very glad to upload yet another collab work with maestro Tumbleweed! This one is quite special cause it embraces Ed's wonderful idea of bringing together some unusual instruments from various parts of the world to find out how well they can work together and also to what degree of harmony they can mix with more standard instruments like sax or piano for example....and so here are presented the Chinese Ghuzeng, Harmonium, Zither, Frame drum, Jingle stick and Wooden whistle among others...so you see the title "No Borders" is truly appropriate. I hope you will find it interesting!:) As always all my thanks go to my dear friend Ed, without whom this exciting journey would never happen !

    Great piece. It's like an emotional road trip in an open desert with the top down.

    Wow, just wow! What a great meeting of the musical minds and such an incredible result. Byleth said it reminded him of the desert and since I live in the middle of the desert, I can tell you it works well with my surroundings, haha.

    This track illustrates what can happen when you put two extremely talented people in a virtual room and let them work their magic.

    I think this is probably some of your best work. The mix is special....so much space and clarity. Stunning piece of art.

    Congrats to both of you for an incredible job. Added to favorites and downloaded to listen to many more times (thanks for that). Well done gents. Happy holidays to both of you. I hope all is well.

    Hi Barry! Sorry for the late reply ! Always good to hear from you and many thanks for this generous feedback! Yes I think you're right...it has something desertish to it. All those unusual instruments from all over the world certainly have their impact. I'm very glad you enjoyed the listen!:)

    Merry celebration and happy New Year______Orlando

    Well, this is quite the combination of talents! I'm really enjoying the disarray contained within, and I mean that in only the best of ways. I can completely forgive the virtual instruments in this track, as they are all used so artistically and dramatically. Untrained ears would not know the difference. I love the subtle jazzy flavours, especially in the outro (that has to be my favorite section). Throughout the piece, I was engaged, even while reading all of the other comments. Fab artwork! Fave!

    Always a pleasure to read your comments my friend ! "Untrained ears would not know the difference.." Yeah...believe it or not I always try very hard when working with vst's to make them sound not too artificial, but the contrary, to place them as close to original instruments as possible !

    Many thanks for this lovely feedback and for the 'fav'!:)

    I'm back again for another listen ;) I had to ask - what do you use for your DAW? And are those live instruments that you recorded? I'd assume so but I had to ask because they sound really good haha.

    Reply by Orlando51

    Nice to see you coming back for another listen.:) I will gladly answer your questions....I mostly use Samplitude as a DAW, rarely Reaper and FL Studio! As far as my part of job on "No Borders" is in question there are no live instruments, only vst's and I think it's the same for Ed's input although I'm not 100% sure...I still have to ask him.:)

    Thanks again and cheers____Orlando

    Awesome colab on my studio speaker its sounds pure epic I love when the other instrument comes in force at 3:00

    the high pich notes are also neat but idk what is the instrument you are using but its awesome.

    For some reason I feel like in desert when i play that track.

    The piano at ends is clean like crystal I love it too

    Overall 15/10 (seriously because nothing is perfect 9.5/10)

    I will fav it

    Really lovely piece, Orlando. Great use of traditional and nontraditional instruments. Really like the sound of the harmonium. Would fit nicely in the "World" music genre if LM had it.

    this work of discovering new combinations of instruments new and old is fascinating to me as well. I thought your use of the old chinese instrument was very effective. I had some luck a few years ago with an instrument called the gopichant. the soundscape is very rich here and has a unique flavor because of these new combinations. big fav. cheers!

    As people we fight, as cultures we fight...
    EVEN...Instrumentally, I find the instruments are
    fighting, to take there place within the mix of
    harmonics, at times it almost hard to see the sense
    of it all...All the Cultures they are connected to
    historically, have never got along anyway so why
    should they...:)...Jokingly but true...

    None the less, a worthy project and the mix is top shelf
    trying to tune the tracks to fit, was more then likely
    the hardest job and it's done very well...

    Peace...TG.

    Orlando51
    Reply by Orlando51

    Although I'm not sure if there's really such a terrible fight in there, I appreciate your opinion very much. I think the field of music art is less strict when cultural borders (or walls) are in question. Music has always been very inclusive teritory. I see this piece almost like some kind of interracial marriage. I'm sure most of them work and while I can't be quite sure if this track does too, I still don't see anything terribly incompatible within and I'm saying this without much trying to defend it. If nothing else we can still consider it as an experiment, moreso if the sense of even doing it is in question...:)

    Many thanks for listening and comment______Orlando

    Hello Orlando.

    The instruments are definitely high quality as well as recording and the entire composition. Very pleasant to the ears.
    I can remember that sax loop from one of the recent tracks by MrTumbleweed. To me the sax section sounds very similar to works from Jan Garbarek, especially on 'In Praise Of Dreams' album which I am familiar with. He improvised in sort of folk manner over extremely soft electronic beats also there is a nice cello counterpoint. You're very close to the special athmosphere of this album for a moment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pl2UkWoN368

    1:53 transition is harmonically quite strange and I am sure that you have definitely 2 tracks here (which is nice!).

    Fine, gentle world beats. Original and very interesting exploration of the sound of very different instruments. Also I liked your playing. It is very well balanced and placed.
    I enjoyed listening a lot!

    Great collab from the duo...

    This sounds very well.
    All fits and has a good sound.
    But to be honest, i knowed it befor listen :)
    'Cause you never made bad sounding stuff
    and i always believed that everything sounds good, when it will be used right.

    The song itself is realy nicely to listen to and i enjoyed it more and more.
    You both did an exelent job!

    This is super cool. I like how you brought together those disparate instruments to achieve a cohesive whole; the instruments are interesting but they don't jar me out of the framework. I agree with ER; the pads make it sound like we're floating. Neat collab with a sound concept.

    That intro is extremely pleasing to my ear :) Your pads develop a huge sense of space/floating. Those chinese stringed instruments are masterfully mixed and processed. The transition is truly epic!!!! It sounds like I'm trekking through ancient China haha. There is a load of emotional drive below this track and I absolutely dig it. You definitely know how to paint a beautiful picture with such clarity :) Fav'd for sure!

    Reply by Orlando51

    Dear friend, I'm so grateful for this generous review and so glad of what you think about the intro cause I'm usually the "intro guy" when doing collabs with Ed and I dare to say this one is really one of my best....but what you said about the transition almost knocked me off my
    seat...why, you will ask...because we were seriously considering to change it and even alternative version was recorded for that matter, but I'm glad we decided to stick to it as it is in the end.

    My deepest appreciation and many thanks for the fav!:)

Description : A fat groove journey incorporating hip hop, jazz, rock and more. Chilled out and rocking, with some big riffs and basslines. The main instruments are saxophone, piano and cello plus some resonator guitar and banjo. Sax is the only instrument not played by me as the parts here were contributed a few years ago by a guy I know. Anything that sounds like distorted guitar is actually distorted cello. Loads of that, including solos, in the second half. No electric guitar or bass guitar. Not much synth work but there are two synth basses and an organ. Otherwise, it's quite an acoustic "played instruments" kind of sound. Lots of drums, including loops, multiple programmed acoustic kits and drum hits. I know Radiohead have an excellent song called Everything In Its Right Place but I still like my title and there's a story behind it (nothing to do with music). Interesting feedback appreciated. Do you have any favourite or least favourite sections? Details are appreciated...
