quieting the tempest

By emily on November 22, 2020 11:03 pm

“Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears; and sometime voices,
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me; that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again...

...Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”

― William Shakespeare, The Tempest

If that doesn't soothe a storm, nothing will.  Nice stuff.

The section at 1:25 is very cool, as if a large wave passed. I like how you use vocals in a similar way to pads (as you do in other tracks as well) - this gives an organic vibe to the track. Nice track!

It sounds like you're flying right over it.

Transporting. That big swelling waves carried me away. Great synths and voice. I don't think I've read the tempest, thanks for that, the magical imagery.
