I like the sound of the string-like synths.  It gives this almost a cinematic feel.

A mash of style here.  Dig the chopped chords near the start and there's some definite 80s vibes going on.

Much less confrontational fo sho!  The synths sound really nice and lush especially with those bass stabs kick in.  Nice work!

The sounds of robots crooning in my ears. Big expansive brass sounds and string pads soften the more percussive edges. Very nice!

Great intro, feeling the lush sound of this one

You've produced some excellent music, enough so that I thought I needed to "up my game." ::)

very interesting piece of work.
I adore the vox!
I'll try and play it as an intro of a mix somewhere ... Could totally set the right mood!

Got a very nice zen feeling from this one! I love the pads and lead combo you brought, with the vox like a chant it makes me think of a robot temple smile listening to it on loop while working right now, great track!

Thanks for the tip! Will check it out!

Very soothing... the pads have a very grandiose feeling to them. I like that little pauses here and there. The vocals have an interesting far-eastern vibe too. Great work!

October 7, 2018 8:15 pm

This is lovely, those vocals especially. I had no idea Marie Ork could make these kinds of sounds! Really good job heart

And at a more resonable price than the Yamaha Vocaloids (i.e. free).
