    The Hours

    Updated vers. https://soundcloud.com/brunospatola/the-hours-11

    I wanted to convey a sense of time and nostalgia with this one. Sort of a warm-coloured state of melancholy.

    Love.. LOVE love this... 2 problems, though... It was not long enough, and not loud enough, maybe it was my computer... but I really had to struggle to hear some of the notes.... beautiful? Hell yes! Melancholy? Absolutely!... Are you going to add to it? If you do, I wish you would PM me, so I can hear it.... you are talented....kinda reminded me of a gentle rain...
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    You're so right; it's too short to be digested properly, and whisper quiet. Very well pointed out, my dear Firemajic. Invaluable advice as ever!

    Are you going to add more? Please... or? I want to save it in my favorites, but I wish there was like a couple of hours of it...

    Well now I'm blushing in all kinds of places; you flatter me, m'lady.

    I will need to think of some nice phrases to lengthen it naturally - another little musical side-street or two before the sort of emotional ascent when the cello comes in, because that has a finality to it. I will post the updated version ASAP ^_^.

    It's too damn low. I can barely hear it.

    There's so much nuance behind it that I really wish you would have just stayed up an extra hour or two and finished it.
    My favorite word in the English language is "shenanigans." My favorite thing to do is cause them.

    I can't make an excuse; I dropped the ball on the master volume, which is an amateur error. I was playing so gently, and being so delicate, that I forgot to adjust the levels for people listening instead of my playing.

    About the length, it's a fact: song's too short, but it is unfinished, to be fair. Simple fixes, but I get so eager for feedback mid-way through the process that I post rough versions, so I don't delete the entire project, which I am guilty of far too often.

    I've taken the comments to heart. I will do the track justice.

    Aw, shucks... Of course! How could I not be won over by that face? :0P

    Here's a minor updated version with fixed volume. https://soundcloud.com/brunospatola/the-hours-11

    I am re-downloading Kontakt instruments - a 23GB suite of instruments - to fully update the track in the ways I need to. I had a nightmare reinstalling Native Instruments Komplete on a new hard-drive, which is one of the reasons some of my latest tracks were left in such weird states. But no more, I'm getting it done. Y'all kicked me up the butt.
