Feeling those Samurai Champloo vibes with this track, sampled some YouTube tutorials on how to play esoteric asian instruments and ran with that.

Love this, really cool outcome from your research. And its not like you find a single esoteric sound and rolled with it, there's a ton of different sounds being used here with nice counterpoint between the melodies. smile

Very creative use of samples, especially how well you made it all fit together into a lovely piece of music.
Cheers!

It has an excellent chilled out vibe and the use of Asian instruments adds a really nice touch to the proceedings.

Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was working or if it was a scattered mess...

Ha! Something very Matrix-like about incorporating the Asian instrument tutorials directly as samples.  I imagine keanu reeves saying "whoa... I know  asian esoteric instruments."

The piano and sampled riffs are absolutely dreamy.  Could listen to this all day... and maybe I will.  Downloading!

very beautiful and soothing, those tutorial samples work marvellously...great!

I was instantly sold with the panned strings in the intro! Great curation of samples, everything marries beautifully with the warm piano chords. Started daydreaming about taking a trip to Asia heart

Digging on this a lot

This is so great. There's definitely a rad Samurai Champloo Nujabes vibe running through the piece. smile

Couldn't agree more, Sir!

You took those samples and made them your own. The Song sounds cohesive and solid.

Your talent to piece airtight arrangements never fail to amaze me. Fantastic work!
