Yep.a Bollywood special here Europica. Superbly crystal clear production.
This is a total fit for a film title track, fitted with bells and whistles! Many recent blockbuster films come to mind!! I know this is a million miles away from my comfort zone and technical experience but I know great when I hear it!!!!
Great title! And a great soundtrack for a contemplative five and half minutes. Nicely arranged, really like the tabla and shaker perc, clear tones onthe woodwinds and strings...agree with the others that violin is particularly sweet. A most pleasant listen sir! Actually, two of them, but 11 minutes well spent! Nice to see you around again :) Thumbs up
Really enjoyed listening to all these Eastern sounds and the violin was an unexpected surprise. A cross between Indian music and a Turkish delight.. I can hear the clicks too but could just be a different sound and certainly didn´t detract from my enjoyment. Well done and good to hear another track from you! Thumbs
Hi Pete....seems like a while since I heard a tune from you...enjoyed the title and knew there would be some magic in here :)....loved the vibe...rhythms hold this...what a treat...yeah the melodic lines (esp. violin for me) here are delicious. Wondered about the tapping that sound in the intro and at 2:14-2:30...could be just my system but just a tad lower in the mix may help...sounds more like overdriving track "clicks"...worth a check then tell me it's my ears..no problem :)
Fantastic composition. Ending drifted wonderfully.
Pete Romanowski, aka Europica is a bass player from the UK who started to play at the age of 24. His first band was a rock outfit called Motorboat who played their original songs around Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Bedfordshire in the 80's. This lead to them to being plugged by the late great John Peel. Compared with the Pink Fairies one of their many gigs involved raising money to help out a mate who was a hunt saboteur, who had got arrested at a fox hunt, taken to court and fined for breaking the peace. So they did a benefit gig to help raise some money so the fine could be paid. Such was the spirit of this band who also did benefits for Amnesty International.In the 90's Pete was invited to join three bands. "Handy", "The Nightshift" and "Chicken Inspectors", (the latter name taken from a Daffy Duck cartoon). They gained local media exposure, in the press and on Radio. Their highlight was playing the Bedfordshire Millennium Festival in the beautiful grounds of Shuttleworth House which was the biggest event of any kind to be held in the County. They also did some benefit gigs for local charities. Pete's favourite gig with this band however was in a tiny pub with a highly charged atmosphere on St Patricks night. To be sure to be sure.Here Pete showcases all of his compositions, ranging from World to Classical to Jazz, Reggae, Dub, and EDM (Electronic Dance Music). There are some collaborations here too. So check out the credits on the page to see who else is involved and it's highly recommended that you google their names to find their outstanding music. The collabs on this page were started off with Pete's ideas, recording the basslines, writing the lyrics and maybe a few other things and then inviting others to bring their own personal creativity to complete the songs. Most of the Reggae and all of the Trance tunes are Europica's solo works. Enjoy the music here and if you'd like to comment or become friends then please feel free to do so or just say a simple "hello". Many thanks!
Yes, a new video of an orchestral tune I did sometime ago. I recorded cubase on play back of the piece and then added lots of piccies that come in and out in time with the music. Hope ya likes :p
