Liner Notes: 

I dunno. This took a couple days. I started off with sounds from Spitfire Audio's "LABS" sounds, which are all free. Then I added an analog synth line, the main melody. Then some strings. Cellos from LABS, others from Spitfire Audio plugins.

I spent some time on this, but it's not "composed", really. I could tell you what the chords are if you give me a few minutes to work it out. But it's mostly improvised by ear.


Not this time.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

always refreshing to spend a bit of the morning floating in space.

No fault in impro that actually works. This one flows along like a slow viscous stream. Not honey, but something a little spicier, less sweet.

It does feel like floating in space with those long sustained notes, slow-changing harmonies and wide range. The synth melody is pretty. I particularly like the short bits of strings and what sounds like it could be a sitar peeking in there.

This took me on a lovely trip. Some of the synth loop reminded me of Tomorrow Never Knows, which is certainly good company to be keeping.

Great title; it really describes these sounds.
A great headphone mix here.
Some nice space music to start my day, thanks! Smile
