Description : inspired by art of Susana Boettner which reminds me of the three kings story of this time of year. three motives in the track vaguely allude to three characters, sometimes in monologue, sometimes dialogue. http://www.susanaboettner.com/losvisitantes/05.jpg

Genre is always tricky and I don't know genres very well so I usually go with weird. But I think I write in an orchestral style, albeit I have mostly abandoned traditional orchestral instruments.

The track is loosely cinematic, insofar as it describes a journey, with mystery, adventure, celebration along the way.

    great job dan. weird? mabe. sounds like electronic. reminds me a little like Jean michele Jerre. there used to be in the 80's a genre called new age. this is great stuff.

    Yea - I think I could start just going with electronic I agree. I remember new age but that was a little less 'weird' and more about ambience, possibly a kind of 'therapeutic' genre also. Glad you liked this buddy. Thanks.

    You gotta be about the most..to hell with convention...creative guy on the loop Dan..I`m glad you are not paying much attention to genres..they are totally unhelpful in the creative process unless you are trying to conform to something thats been done before.....I like the freedom of the cinematic genre...good excuse to play to whatever picture is in the mind...very creative..abstract...quite unusual....well done, much respect to you....Ed

    Hey Ed. Well I always joke that I was sleeping during theory class so had to invent my own system when I started writing. But yea - I don't try to tie in with genre for most part. Having said that, I am thinking about a few steps back for next track into something more conventional with more emphasis on sweet sounds, blends, and listener's experience. Thanks very much for awesome comment. Regards - Dan

    Another awesome track midisparks! The atmosphere you have created here is great. And it does remind me of flying drones too. I'm glad to see you are still creating these intriguing tracks. Truly nice work.

    Hey Shatner - glad you had a chance to check this. There were quite a few 'personalities' to manage in this track but I was pretty happy with the result. Irony is that with less one can sometimes do more and I think I may back off to fewer voices, ideas, etc., and more emphasis on the ultimate sonic experience for the user. Looking forward to checking out your latest. Regards - Dan

    When i close my eyes the one thing that comes to mind.

    A flying drone.

    Loving the creativity in this one midisparks, overall a nice and creative track.

    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks

    Hey Fl4zh

    I can see the flying drone also. A lot of drones in the track of course. The little character 'hits' could be aspects of the drone's 'personality'.

    Thanks for the comment and checking out the track. Look forward to hearing something of yours very soon.

    Regards,

    Dan

    You don't need to comment to what I'm going to say, but there is nothing "bad" about this well crafted track. This is both interesting and fascinating. What are you using to incorporate the different sounds on here? Very creative and original. In fact, you, Spivkurl, and StaticNomad are a few names that have an original sound to yours and their music, and for that I give my big respect and appreciation. When I hear, I think ambient. It just has a continous flow that keeps one thinking and wanting more. Dan, this is a gorgeous piece and I just want to say continue on your musical journey and inspire others. 10/10. Fave and DL. Thank you for that.

    Hey Pete.

    I don't even remember offhand the FL Studio synth I started with for the sounds. There was quite a bit of editing and effecting. Ultimately I cut snips from the waveforms to create samples.

    I appreciate the positive comments a lot.

    Thanks, brother.

    Hey Dan, Very Avant Garde piece you created, perfect for Art and the message you are trying to convey by showcasing it.
    all the best

    Hey Steve

    Yea, you got it right. The idea is to model some music for abstract art and hopefully motivate some interest in current Winter Contest on the site.

    I guess this piece is avant garde. I always joke that I was half asleep every morning in music theory class so now, when I want to compose, I have to make up my own systems! Well - despite my bad behavior in music school there is a lot of classical influence.

    anyway - I'm very happy you had a chance to check this one out and thank you for the comment.

    hey jody! yea - spiv and i are buds and he has contributed some loops to a few of my tracks. can't say a true collab cause he was just giving me something for my concept as opposed to a joint concept but anyway. . . I am glad you found something interesting in this. There is a new mix posted and one more probably in the morning then onward and upward. thanks very much for visiting. Dan

    I think someone added a little something to the fruitcake! The pic definitely reminds me of the the three kings story, and that looks like an abstract baby in the red at the bottom. What kind of gifts were they bringing anyway?! Merry Christmas Dan :D

    Hi Dan,

    Brilliant track mate a little bit short????
    Well done great job.

    I like it! Sounds kinda like video game SFX but at the same time just not quite. It's very unique!

    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks

    Hi, Kinmadi. I am famous for writing music that sounds like it belongs in video games. I have speculated that it is partly that I am about 30 years behind with the synths and the electronic production techniques, so my music is unavoidably old school sounding. But at the same time I have this music conservatory background so I write this inscrutable esoteric stuff that does sometimes manage to sound original. I am glad you liked it kingmadi. Thanks very much for the comment. Dan

    I am not sure what the morphing is but I'm glad you liked it, Michael. I will hopefully continue to refine this one, to expand it, balance it out musically. I was in a hurry to have something 'finished' to share out. Great to have you stop by. Later. Dan

    Spivkurl on Fri 16th Dec 2016 - 2 years ago

    This is an enjoyable experiment! I've been experimenting with more ambient things as well lately... just trying to get free I guess. There are a lot of barriers to artistic fulfillment, and the decision has to be made. Very happy to hear you still breaking through barriers, and it is especially evident with songs like this. I'm looking forward to hearing you take this further! Fave!

    midisparks
    Reply by midisparks

    Thank you for the Fave! Much appreciated. I was dead set on understanding sampling in FL Studio better and I think I got a bit further down the road with that goal in this project. I hope I can scrub this one, but who knows. The demands of online promotion compete with creative work. Hard to strike the balance. Thanks for the positive feedback Pat.

    Hey Burt thanks. yea - I'm gonna keep working to expand this for sure. I am doing a short video with the art that inspires this, hence the short version for now.

Have been attempting to write 2-3 songs over the past couple of months with little success, when this one just appeared out of nowhere.

It's a bit odd I guess (which is why I tagged it as weird) but I enjoyed creating and listening back to it, so here it is.

Thank you!

All started with the uploading of this high risk virus on a music file named Mobius 2.01b and end with a future update to control every phones on earth. Yes every single unique phone on earth. He is still happy. Please take note even I put it in Electronic its somewhat a prototype genre and music. Any comment are welcome.
