Some more slow trudging nostalgic piano this week.  Olde tymey piano from the RD700GX.  Bass, lead and fx from the tiny mighty Bass Station 2.  The arps toward the end are a combo of me mashing the keys and the fun BS2 stepping to my command.  Thank you for listening! smile

man, this is beautiful!! the piano notes coalesce into such a nice warm feeling. the composition is really nice and the switch to minor at that one point is so nice. i also love the drums. it kind of reminds me of floating on the sea without a care... at least until the arps start coming in at the end, then i'm not quite sure what is going on. ;-) great work, i'm sure i'll be coming back to this one.

Chillllll! Very good balance between notes and rests/"silence", and props for that ever-present, yet non-intrusive and sweet, sweet bassline

Very good!
These snare rolls are nice and the wobling cymbal not to forget these nice spacey efx sounds.
You are creating a real atmosphere... i just hit repeat the third time now smile

Yeah this is real nice to just kick back and relax too.  Very soothing.

Very relaxing work, I'd almost say it's a nocturne.

Gorgeous atmosphere--totally inviting slow groove and swirly arpeggios. Well done!

Makes me think of falling asleep on a gently rocking boat.
Love how the bass and the piano work together. Wonderful track!

Very clever use of the groundshaking analog bass in a chilled way instead of the popular "here come da drop, bro" way. Subtle and warm.

I am in full agreement of the previous comments.  It is really clever how you incorporated "rumble bass" with this call piano.  Like a beautiful river with an incredibly strong current.  The filtered beat also lends itself to the imagery of something hitting the side of the boat, and the pitch changes as the water resides.  I hope to write something like this one day!

Thanks everyone I'm  glad the imagery came out smile I appreciate the motivating comments very much!
