Description : C#, G#, A#. bass, lead, atmosphere from GMS synth in FL Studio. Perhaps if you commute on a German ferry boat each day, this would be upbeat music to help you psyche up for your workday! no clue about genre as usual. Inspired by Karsten's painting here: http://audiosparksforart.com/project/big-red-boat/

    I started listening to this, and then felt the desire to go and view the painting... not surprising that the painting felt instantly connected with the music! It's like I could see it before I clicked the link, within the music. Very creative stuff. I think that you coaxed some good sounds out of the single synth, and I could see the frequencies being even more broad if the sounds were created on different instruments... but then the whole "vibe" may be lost, so it might not be worth it. I really like this one! Thank you for sharing! Fave!

    I think the fact that your music is difficult to fit in a particular genre box speaks well to your creativity Dan....it does indeed bounce along nicely..one of those tunes that you listen to and just couldn`t feel down...and aint that a good thing...nicely done...Ed

    Another nice pair up! The music represents the big boat floating on the calm sea while pushing forward on our way to work :D I do picture the early 1900's era riding the ferry to the factory for the day. What's the return trip sound like?

    LOL! Maybe it turns into a full blown dance track!

    Yo.

    I like boats. Big, red or small - I don't mind.

    This has a pretty cool vibe to it but feels like it should be extended. As if it's only a preview. Gotta say the vibe is quite futuristic so doesn't make me think of that boat chugging along.

    This sounds like it's going to turn into a fat, pumping dance track once some heavier beats arrive.

    Or it can just stay sitting there chilling in its bombastic sort of way for a while.

    Congrats.

    Honestly, I was gonna stay in chill mode but expand as you were feeling should. Now I am hearing something a little more aggressive. It will be new territory if I go in that direction but hey - that's the way you grow.

    On the art - yea, not my most obvious music/art sync by a long shot. But it's a happy ride!

    Thanks for great visit and comment Static.

    Very unique sound. Music you cant fit in a genre but is always fun to listen to. GMS is a pretty good synth. I used a few times as well. Nice track!

    yea - genre generally alludes me. I'm more interested in the music evolving somehow out of response to a piece of visual art. that's my angle! LOL! But it was really sticking practically to a couple of obviously related patches in the GMS that gave me a leg up on this one. Glad you could stop by, mudhoen. Thanks for great comment. I'll have some coffee ready next time!

    Dunno why but I think Peter Gabriel when I hear this. This is brilliant Dan, I truly love the earthly vibe...I'd love to jab at it if my voice was up for it, but I've been sick recently, voice is a bit raspy, frail. It's a big progress from how it was half a year ago. Question? Are you sending reverb to your tracks? I would take a little off the tail. Try lowering the send fader a bit, helps reduce decay but it's only my preference :) Overall, genius production my friend, faved!

    Thats a really cool site linking music with art, ive went through a few on there and it looks like you have done alot of tracks for it haha very cool idea :)

    anyhoo the song haha, this is great. It feels minimal but still somewhat complex, very chill but pretty exciting. I think it also captures that picture very well. Great track! :)

    I'm happy, Renz. Found some compatible sounds in a single synth and made this one a low-stress, low angst "quickie". Glad you liked. Best regards my friend. Dan

    Brilliant...though, at first listen (til I didn't see the painting) I imagined some small boats floating, waving, slowly rolling down the river with the possible choice of the upcoming danger...:-)

    Than I saw that cruiser...:-)

    Too good catch of the feeling Dan...

    Hats off, Danke

    It is interesting how the music for art tracks turn out. Sometimes the connection with the painting is mostly about emotional content. I think the music might speak of a happy ride in this commuter boat. Thanks for checking this out. All the best. Dan

Description : Sounds of the sea and trippy acidy washes with a cool beat and some live acoustic guitar. Written in Cubase with live guitar and keys etc. The sound of the sea and birds was recorded on the beach where I used to live. After moving to the city one sunny day I was telling stories to a friend about living by the sea and started making this track.

Description : This is a tribute song to the Family and Friends of the Sandy Hook Elementary. The song was written by Barry Morgan and Anomaly Jonez

Description : Many of you know well that Tumbleweed & Orlando collabs are pretty much well established tradition within LM society by now, and here is the newest example to reinforce that tradition. It's probably the last this year (yet never take it for granted) and I think it has (although not particularly intended) a bit of that seasonal celebrative nature, thus fitting quite well into this festive feel of December. Despite providing it's share of melancholic tones (you can bet who is responsible...haha...) it's a quite happy tune overall...and it doesn't bite, so you're all most welcome to listen and comment !... As always my sincere thanks to Ed !

Description : I was inspired by 2 looperman loops created today and came up with this track. Thanks to the following:

Description : The spring is in full motion over here and I guess it helped me quite a bit to complete my part of the job on yet another exciting collab with maestro Tumbleweed. Most of our collab works contain at least some aspect which demonstrates something out of ordinary one or another way. This time we got a peculiar combination of mysticism and merciless attacks of soapiness (my bad....haha)....So let's listen to hear whether I'm right or not!....:) As always on such occasions, all my thanks to Ed !
