Back in the comfort zone with the acoustic piano.
I was working on different track for this week, but had some extra time when I sat down to record acoustic piano for that track.
So I ended up recording the parts for a completely new track. Added a Paulstretched recording of a tram passing and cut up an old recording of some cello samples. And some Absynth bass.

Such a haunting atmosphere. Well done.

Beautiful piano work. The metallic droning of the tram sample adds another dimension. It's like a constant "wanting" or desire. Would never have guessed the origin of that sound. The cellos are very subtle and well placed.

Put on my headphones to catch all the detail. Such depth!

The piano sounds great as always and there's a lot of great background textures.  Those cellos are definitely subtle but add a lot.  I think this would sounds great late at night.

Beautiful piano and great way to add texture and ambiance, always amazes me the sounds we can produce with paulstretch

This is lovely--all about the atmospheric, sad piano and that stretched noise bed. Totally digging it.

Gosh that piano sounds beautiful and melancholy all at once.  Paul stretch is such a cool tool for finding new textures in just about anything.  The absynth bass rounds out the whole atmosphere so nicely too.  As always, can't get enough of that piano sound you get from Pianoteq.  Well done!
