The Worst Kind Of Sorry

By Tone Matrix on July 22, 2018 4:47 pm

I wanted to try something a bit different this week but instead ended up deleting all of it the day before and deciding to go with a quiet ambient thing.  Sometimes I find that having a set bpm and/or playing to a metronome tends to make me apprehensive and stiff.  So I decided to just record in one take, ten minutes of different inversions of the set chords I had in mind with no particular bpm set.  Unless you count my "internal_meh_clock".  Found the section I liked the most and snipped it down to about three and a half minutes.  The same field recordist/sound engineer (Felix Blume) who inspired Week 27's track with his field recordings of squealing pigs helped again with two additional recordings.  There's a bed of singing toads and a filtered funicular in fribourg supporting the piano and sub.  Thanks for listening! smile

Lovely melancholy. Can't go wrong with singing toads (though I couldn'r really hear them well). Should be longer.

Definitely melancholy and contemplative.  Would sound great looking out the window on a rainy day.

Very soothing, it is actually raining right now and this piece fits the mood beautifully. Good idea on going a piacere instead of following a strict tempo, I find it gives a lot of emotional impact. Hearing the hammers and the felt in the higher register notes made me feel like I was right next to the piano and gave me chills (the good kind!)

Nice and mellow. This is great piano work.

This is soooo good again! Sounds like the wind is carrying this piano melody from far away...
Awesome mix...sounds also great on the tiny speakers of a tablet big_smile

It is for deliciously melancholic tracks like this one that I play your tracks when the day is hard and I'm struggling. Simply beautiful
