Description : It's been a while since my last upload, yet here is finally the new one and it's 'dangerous' as it gets cause this time I ultimately decided to dedicate this thing to my dear friend Ed, the man well known to Looperman audience as Tumbleweed.. He has been my huge inspiration for those past few years and always will be. Luckily we've made some pretty decent stuff together and more is to come. Working with Ed helped me to improve alot and this composition is now my way of saying 'thank you' to him and music should express my gratitude better than words....One might expect this will be Irish (or Celtic) music, but it's not necessarily the case...as the title suggests it's merely the touch of it....it's like a mirage in the highland mist and it's full of orlandesque crap to be honest...haha...yet I decided to include a tiny snippet of a famous traditional Irish song at the very end of the track and I bet you will recognize it instantly ...particularly for the lads with Irish roots this shouldn't be a problem...:) So, Ed...put your headphones on and be merciful my friend...:)

UPDATE: 10th March 2016 / Today I decided to do an
alternative mix of the track...and hell yeah, I think it sounds much better now !:)

    Hey my friend

    A very haunting but beautiful piece, loving the pads and strings, cant really put into words what I feel hearing this one, something surreal about the sound, not sure, amazing piece, this is a sound you expect to hear when watching fish swimming in and out of the reefs in a ocean doco, maybe that is the strange feeling it is giving me...Totally loving the piece my friend, again credit to your talent...fav...peace n respect...mosaic...

    Very cool and interesting composition here! My initial reaction was to reference Emerson, Lake and Palmer, if they had not been so tied in with rock and roll. Very similar sounds to many of theirs that I remember listening to in my youth. I'm partly Irish, but have little cultural reference to it. I can appreciate the peaceful feelings, and the instrumentation. This sounds like it is more complex than it seems. I enjoyed listening very much!

    Good old ELP....what a nice reference!:) I think all those influences are in the subconsciousness, cause I never try to copy anyone intentionaly except when I decide to do kind of tribute (Pax Europea) or a cover (Pilate's Dream) which are extremely rare features in my repertoire anyway. I'm really glad you enjoyed the listen...thanks alot my friend!

    Hey there,oh mystical one!Really enjoying this one.

    I dont know why but Pete Townsend came to mind somewhere during the intro, something about the mood/tone and Rhythm.I bet thats a first!Then its gone.
    The mood to me is a feeling of contemplation.

    Anyway mate,an exceptional moment and a worthy tribute to this sites celebrated artiste

    This makes me so hungry for a DAW again! I've been writing with just an acoustic as of late and while it's nice, I do miss seeing things come together in a way that is just as beautiful as this. This track is so dreamy and I can sense the Irish influence on this one! The pads are wide and nothing is over-driven, which I think is perfection. Sometimes abstract music like this really feels like a breath of fresh air. Thanks for letting me clear my head :)

    wow Orlando, this is special my friend, I am happy to have your kind on here. I thought of Brian Eno when I heard the beginning (Music For Airports). I know Brian would have a fantastic listening experience if he heard this. This is very well thought out my friend, a definite fave. Thank you for the download, I will be in a comfortable state when I put it on. 10/10

    Wow powerful!
    It hit my sadness button.
    So so sad.
    So many tears have been shed by so many people in this scene but at last it's over.
    It will probably never be the same but at least it's over now.
    Brilliant.
    No no no I don't think the word brilliant is right here.
    It some how takes away from the pain of the piece.
    I'm lacking the vocabulary to use a different descriptive wor/phrase .... I'll be back.

    Very interesting reaction I wouldn't think of..I mean, do
    you really find it so immensely sad? In fact you're the first reviewer to mention sadness and even strongly emphasizing it ! I agree there are apparent waves of melancholy but I really wouldn't think of overwhelming sadness...Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely excited about your observation cauae it makes me really curious now and I would be glad to hear some more about your view...afteral you're saying you will be back...and you are most welcome my friend..:)

    This is a gorgeous track. You have that magical touch that allows the ambient sounds to softly shift in a way that feels natural. I often find that composing and producing a track feels like sculpting, but your approach has a different feel, more like nursing a sound, letting it grow. This is an excellent example of that.

    What a nice tribute to Ed! You guys are quite talented in your own ways and when working together you seem to be seamless and on the same page. Very cinematic piece, expected to hear the Highlander or a Braveheart movie snippet on top somewhere. :) Ambient is a cool choice, like a kaleidoscope for the ears.

    "it's full of orlandesque crap" Nonsense, this is good shit!

    Always a pleasure to listen to your creations. Thanks for putting this up for dl!

    Orlando....Bravo...a masterpiece.

    This song is graceful, haunting, sentimental and touching with just a slight air of detachment. A Beautiful work of art.

    It reminded me of three different artists songs that you may or may not be aware of as they were never truly mainstream artists but nevertheless there are elements in those three songs that you captured in one song which struck me.
    The first is from Ultravox and is an instrumental called Astradyne which starts there colossal album Vienna.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-kVZsO1GCk
    The second is an African artist from senegal named Babba Maal and his song playing the guitar like instrument called a Kora and acoustic guitar. I find his music has an irish like tone similar in some of the works. Especially in his song Souka Naya.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqPFQGF-sRM&index=32&list=PLF9F9ll40VBF6lJdPJhRqkbUx5Ep6XaDl
    And the last song is from Phil Manzanera, the guitarist of Roxy Music in his solo work made this extrodinary synth based ambient song called Europe 70-1, which starts out a bright and hopeful and cheery but becomes ambient and sentimental. it was the first time I heard analogue synths convey emotion . As you have done in your own work my friend.

    This song (as all of yours) was made by the special maximalism and professionalism which is called 'orlandesque' attitude...every second of the flow made with small, short but effective fxes...the pad what leads through the whole number is ethereal and magical...
    I'm not an Irish rooted guy :-) but if you mean that short, last part from around 5.40 is very beautiful...
    All in all, Ed will be proud of his Slovenian magus...:-)

    Huge congrats and handshake, Danke

on a role of pretending to be multi-instrumentalist again by smuggling in some sweet strings, bulgarian flute, celtic harp,
unexpectedly blurry piano and this time a tiny bit of real live acoustic guitar...what an adventure for a vst/keyboard guy..:) As always
my sincere thanks to Ed not only for letting me enjoy his great musical company but also for still standing as one of the firm pillars of Looperman society !

Description : I went to the beach and set up my stereo recording mic under a gazebo near it (I apologize for some of the air gusts being recorded haha; we had a strong SE wind that day :P Tried my best to place it out of the wind); wanted to record myself playing live and do some cheesy roleplay in the process - wanted to make it feel like the listener was sitting there beside me. ** This is what the beach looks like: http://static.travel.usnews.com/images/destinations/80/south_padre_island_main.jpg **

Lo and behold, I'm about halfway through the song when my buddy Mark, a friend from college, heard me singing and decided to join me (he seems to never part with his guitar lol).

The expression on his face was that of confusion as to why I had my mic with me and a audio-capturing device, which I plugged into an outdoor electrical plug that the gazebo owners installed lol (I've done recordings like this before but didn't like the results; we messed up a little at the end but I was like meh it's not bad anyways.) but I'm glad he didn't say it out loud or it would have ruined the recording lol. Luckily, I was playing a song he and I wrote together some time ago, so he was able to just jump right in. He's a great guitar player.

Even though it was a little awkward at the end since we hadn't seen each other for like 4 months (you might be able to tell by the way I responded to his "thats so cool" comment haha), I think it turned out just fine. It was a lovely evening and the clouds were all poofy and happy. Lots of people were there too, though I made sure to sit far away from all of them. Ahh, it was a beautiful day. I'm glad I live by the ocean :P * Just kidding, I recorded this in my studio; though I do live close to the water, this was not recorded there :P I did everything, down to the wind blowing into the mic, except for the sound of water and the kids in the background. I got those sounds here: freesfx.co.uk/login/

The guitars and vocals were one-takes to give a more realistic feel. No pitch-correction or autotune. Just wanted to try making another soundscape (or whatever you want to call this :P) about what it's like to live by the ocean.

Description : While I concluded the previous year with the shortest track ever uploaded it seemed only appropriate to begin the new one with my longest track ever. And funny enough I used one and only instrument for this noodling marathon, the celtic harp....and I really couldn't help it, it was just dragging on and on and on...haha...so I think that anyone who could possibly listen to this from start to finish must be a real listening hero..:)^^

Description : Glen Cloy is one of the glens of Antrim (Tumbleweed's county) in Northern Ireland. The little people, actualy fairies, populate all of them and they all have very old ghost stories that have been told for centuries (and still are)...This one is about Shaman of old and his journeys through the spiritual world...That sums up what Ed told me about the concept for our 7th (how convenient^^) collab work. The main core of the track is Ed's work and the original length was 5:18, but I wouldn't have been Orlando if I didn't tempt to compose my longest intro to date (3:10) to inject my own fantasies about little creatures of Glen Cloy (soft spot for spiritual world..hehe..). Other than that I also added some synths arrangements and vocal samples for the rest of the track and probably ruined it a bit..haha..but that's how collabs are sometimes..:)^^.....All my thanks to Ed...and Irish ghosts ofcourse...
