Love the vocals! Also, the beautiful quiet bit makes for a great contrast with the driving rhythm of the rest of the piece. It's refreshing to hear a rhythm that's NOT the typical full drum set sound.

Nice guitar work! And that's an understatement. Good vocals, too. This is going to be stuck in my head a while. I'm good with that.

Suspenseful. At the beginning, there's no way to guess what this will turn into. Great "unfolding" of your ideas here!

I haven't been doing a lot of audio recording lately, but I have been busy creating and playing. Here's my evidence :)

Hi Rob Darby, it was a real pleasure to listen to your new sound while working. We love this soothing, floating tunes of »wherever I go.«. Thanks for that. Best wishes, Cian, Mael, Sandro

Another cool collaboration! Great job, guys. Love the playing all the way through. Who played bass?

Thanks, Rob! Trully: It was me who played bass, but not the whole track. Just 2 small parts and then I use a sampler to be more sharp in a groove.

Wow ! Beautiful creation here ! Almost baroque at times....so very pretty and compelling !!

Thanks, Stevie. I don't think I've ever had my music called, "compelling." I like it! I love baroque music, so that influence might just slip in there. Funny, I'm working on a "B" section for this, and it includes a trick I picked up from Vivaldi: Say you have the chord progression, C-F-D-G. The bass can climb up chromatically if you start on the third of the first chord: E-F-F#-G. A while back I bought an M-Audio Venom synth on ebay. They're cheap because nobody wants to spend time re-programming the horrible presets(probably why they flopped). But, starting with the sound waves, I managed to build the sound for the main melody here and for the "recorders" out of the thing. I've also written a fake orchestral arrangement for this. I'll be posting it in a few seconds probably.

That is pretty good. I don't even know how to classify it.

Thanks, CJO. I don't know how to classify it, either. I guess it's a good thing I'm not doing any serious marketing.
