Afternoon Light in a Tea Garden

Uploaded .

warning!!! this is a long 10+ min instrumental
It’s a piece about 4 years old that was my first attempt at using synth voices,, I am still looking for a good one,, if anyone knows.
The music itself is a tone poem, loosely dedicated to a children’s novel titled the “Queens own Grove”, and the magical stately tree lined historic Victoria Avenue in Riverside California. comments are very welcome

very pleasant composition, and a great orchestation. although choirs might lack a bit of depth, mostly in the graves, there is really nothing wrong with those you've used..

Try with Quantum Leap East West Programs, they will blow your mind. They are mostly orchestral stuff, and realistic instruments outside synth, but i think there are plenty of synth things on the same site. if i did catch your question correctly hopefully i answered that same question.

You are right on the money that I have a lot of fun coming up with my songs! Thanks for your listens and checking out my back catalog! This song builds really nicely. It's very full and rich. I wish I could compose longer songs like this. I get tired of musical ideas really quickly and always want to move on to the next one! This would be great in a movie soundtrack. There is some slight hissing going on but nothing terribly distracting. Excellent work here!

This is fabulous! The instruments perfectly compliment one another, in fact, they dance! And the synth voices sound great - much better than any I've found! Wonderful piece of music, beautifully performed.

Have had some time to listen to this in my car during the work week. Excellent piece, took some time to wrap my head around it completely.

I really enjoyed the listen of this album. Though I am a 'roots' americana guy myself, I love classical and probably listen to this style more than to any other. I especially love the interplay of lines which make the harmonies as opposed to chord-based pop music. Your selections very nicely fed this appreciation. Thanks for making the world a bit more beautiful, awe-inspiring and majestic.

Guest said

Great tune, absolutely! And thanks for your kind words.

I see you are a night owl, too. Thanks for your encouragement, by the way. Your piece, "Afternoon..", is delicious. I'm gonna turn it up several notches tomorrow when I listen again to get the full orchestral feeling...trying not to wake the family right now. I'm interested in the making of this piece. Not to sound untechy or anything, but this seems like a complicated piece for computer. Do you play a variety of instruments that are not computer generated? Do you write stuff for soundtracks or games?

Magnificent! Love it when the voices come back in with the organ at 8:25

A very gentle wake up this fine morning. magnificently exquisite. That organ at 8:20 or so, with the voices, is inspiring me to do great things. Oh wow, nice break to the acoustics.

Guest said

Totally glorious! The voices work really well, beautifully mixed.

As it unwinds it reaches deeply in, like a good massage both relaxes tension, and refreshes and energizes. Thought I wouldn't play to the end, but I did - and played it again! Beautiful.

This is a beautiful piece. Every second is worth listening to.
