You paint a vivid picture,sir. Very evocative. Atmospheric intro,with the spoken word and wind instrument. Nice build up with the percussion and then the unexpected piano motif comes in. The instrument choices work really well.
An elegant,well thought out soundtrack
Well Pete I had just finished typing a lengthy review of this piece when Firefox crashed but basically I was saying the following. I think this piece contradicts your self assessment of your musicianship. This track is top drawer by any standards I know of. Delicately layered with considered skill and accomplished production expertise its time you updated your profile to reflect your depth of talent.
I have a Native Indian style track in WIP and after listening to this I'm afraid that's where it will remain :-)
Native flute is the signature sound...a lament that the harp seems to run with...drumming rhythms drive and the orchestral surge in through 2m pushes into a dream-scape with the piano line echoing. Use of the vocal brings a bit of the shaman magic to the entire track. Hoping for a brighter future...works for everyone, especially for those eking out a life in the confines of a reserve...all this from a shard...amazing in its original form, more so in this version Pete.
:D Lush Intro - so spiritual and Calming. I am playing this loud and every instrument strikes its place so sweetly :) The sweeping vocal of Navajo Indians cuts in and out according to the movement of the piano and pads :) So at ease and unified :) Lush choice of intriguing Instruments blended so well :) Movie Soundtrack - gives of amazing Visuals :)
Wow. Nice piece of music. Produciton is fantastic! Love the use of the wind instrument. The percussion is really cool and perfect for the track. The overall sound of the track has a lot of warmth to it as well. Very impressive. Thumbs. Roger
Love this track in both its forms. Your music just does it for me. THat simple...
Ahh, i remember this well, just weeps with regret. Wonderful. Gibbo
Just gorgeous. I can't praise this beautiful piece enough.
Love Wednesday x
Totally enthralling, you have recreated the magic of the Navajo for us. Big Thumb. Gibbo
Hi Peter, I love that Indian wooden flute. I have two so far in my collection although i don't play them real well, I do love the sound and you have captured the spirit this mysterious music holds in such a dramatic way with the wolf calls; (something else I relate to) just brings this magical piece to a grander height for me.
Amazing that a small piece of pottery can remind you of the time and place for you to translate into such a stunning piece of music. I feel like I am there as the journey unfolds. Blown away by this wonderful soundscape. Pure class and thanks for the d/l. Huge thumbs!!
Echoing Dan's sentiments. So glad that you kept mementos of times and places, prompting a musical expression of this nature...big, expansive soundscape...sorrowful, surging,...yet at times quietly optimistic...moments for dreaming too...(would be interesting to read the translation of the Hopi)...very powerful in its calm resolve.
I was really excited when I saw a new Pete Vines track up and as usual, it blew me away. Your music holds a special place in my musical soul as it touches it on a regular basis....amazing composition, production and performance!
HI Peter, An immediate affinity to this monster! The flute is good and conjures up all sorts of imagery. The gentle drawing in of the track to the percussion at 1.42 starts to tell its story. I wondered if the 'chants' were difficult to include as they were slightly out of sync :) The piano at 3.00 was unusual in this context. Love the warrior inclusion. Now harp at 4.00 visions of the 'women folk' tending to domestics by the river with children playing in the background under the midday sun. For me it lacked some upbeat moments of a 'war dance' nature but that is just me Peter however, I enjoyed the picture you have painted here. Thumbz up
I'm an amateur musician down here in the leafy south west of England. My favourite genre would have to be ambient electronica / dark ambient; a preference fashioned by listening to many hours of early Tangerine Dream / Jarre / Eno / Budd / Fripp / Tomita etc in my formative years. I find this music as evocative as any classical work. Wearyall Hill made No.1 in the Official Chart for which I'm grateful. I'm in awe of some of the talent on this site and could never aspire to compete with it, but I'm grateful for all the wonderful music I've found here and the generosity of composers in allowing us to download so much.
I'm now finding new pleasure in the challenges of orchestration, enjoying a growing number of collaborations with wonderful singer songwriters. If you're lookng for collaborations or you're doing something similar in my neck of the woods it would be good to hear from you.
