The Beach

Piano and drum machines. The main piano ostinato is doubled with Pianoteq, otherwise it's all acoustic piano.
Being on holiday with no instruments available, the basics for this track were recorded earlier, and the limited time I had for making music this week was spent mixing and adding effects.

Atmospheric as always.  The washes of distortion are a nice touch.

Stately, ominous and very lovely. Great use of materials.

Another cool piano track that could easily set the mood for an opening to a movie.  Love the sound of those low piano keys.  Nice job! smile

Love that piano dirt, it works so well.  This oughta be from the OST of a B&W Russian arthouse movie about despair.

Thank you all for your kind comments!

(The idea for the title came as I was walking on a empty beach in Denmark one overcast evening where the flat light made everything look slightly grey, so more of a 'nordic noir' beach than a happy sunny one.)
