    The Final Journey

    I spend 2 weeks writing the chords for this and 18 hours straight recording, mixing & mastering this track for my CD. This track is in front of Amazing Grace which is the last track on the CD.

    I did not use a click track on this song, like some of my other songs the timing comes from within.

    Tracks:

    4 synth tracks. Yamaha So8

    GPO tracks:

    6 violins
    4 violas
    4 cellos
    4 french horns
    4 trombones
    3 flute

    All GPO tracks were recorded live, in stand alone.

    You really have a way with the New Age sound. I really like the ethereal sound you layer in this. A long and mystical journey this CD will be.


    Thank you!

    Lots of sound here, with lots of subtleties going on under that big wall.

    I think the piece is well entitled.

    An enjoying listen Mr Hippie!

    Hi Aram, I have listened to this several times now and also visited your webpage and re-listened to some of the other tracks. What other members have commented is also what I will say, this song is multi-layered with a lot of things going on in there. I tried to listen on different levels each time, sometimes trying to follow a particular synth voice or instrument which was pretty difficult for me. You have a unique sound on this track. This song should work well with the others for your CD.

    Does this complete your plans now? Is there going to be a real rocker on this CD or is that for another project? John

    Thank you Alan. The subtleties were what I felt after I recorded the main synth track...........so I recorded then with out writing the music down. I knew the instruments I wanted to use and what I wanted them to play, so I just played what I felt. Now I get to try and write the notes down on paper. This should be fun.

    I can't follow them either John, and I wrote the song. LOL

    I played them in a way that they would weave in and out of each other. If you pick one, as it weaves through another instrument you will wind up following that one and I also moved some of the notes so they would be early or late from the main synth chords.

    As for doing a rocker, I have tried but it's song like this one that come out so I will wait on doing the rockers.

    I also have listened to this a few times and it is definitely a wall of sound. I can hear a nice lead guitar in this one as well. Any chance of that?

    Well done

    Hippie Aram,


    As a lover of New Age music your track drew my attention.

    It certainly has all the right elements for such a style, the right harmony and instrumentation!

    You have expertly added interesting small subtleties of sound all the way through which add a lot to the atmosphere and ambiance.

    I listened on two different monitors sets (to make sure) and there’s something in the sound that is a bit unpleasant to my ears.

    I would soften the sound and lower the volume of the constant notes played (the synths I believe) to get a more calm and balanced overall sound.

    I could then really relax and flow with your music…

    And I would call it... ‘The Eternal Journey’…

    Hi Aram, this is pure New Age, a piece that seems conceived for meditations purposes, is a kind of mystical atmosphere.

    Regards,

    Victor
