This Too Will Pass

Just some noodling around with synths. The title doesn't mean anything,  political or otherwise.  Well, maybe it does.

I like the tone of the Grandeur in a piece like this. Did you have a delay going on it, or play it that way? Either way, sounded nice.

You have chosen the synths that are all distinctly different, one from another, and mixed them so try all fit into a cohesive whole. Good job!

Thanks Tom

I used uHe Colour Copy delay effect on the piano.    You just need to play one note at regular intervals and it fills in some pretty interesting extra notes,  which I guess is what delay effects do, but this one's better than others I've used.

I love ambiguity in lyrics and titles; so good on ya there! Well done BTW.

Tom has summed it up succinctly!  for whatever reason FireFox and/or the forum software is not allowing me to hit the enter key and leave my signature.  Or, a "sad" emoji (not about the tune, just the stupid software); oh well.... the other Tom

You know Bjorn - I thought this was impressive - a nice job indeed.  You're quite a better composer than you think you are.

Excellent mix and I really enjoyed the listen - cheers.

Sounds pretty good to me! I like the way everything meshes together. You've got a really nice bed laid down here, I would just like to hear a real melody to take it from ambient to another level. Really nice job on what you've got!

Very nice to listen to.  I think the score is well down.  The instruments well chosen.  The balance great.

My only nit pick is the dynamics, particularly the cymbals swells and crashes as well as the tympani drums.   The perceived volume increase doesn't push the song forward like it should.  I can hear the volume change but I don't hear the dynamics of a volume change.

Nicely done.  You are talented.

Thanks. I'm thinking about doing a melody track on top.

Thank you.

Jim
Yeah, I never seem to pay much attention to the drum track. IDK I just can't hear if I'm improving things or not when adjusting volumes and such.
Appreciate the insight.

Bjorn - like this - the bass line reminds me a bit of Tangerine Dream - good stuff

SoundCloud is bad enough but now this forum is getting SPAM. Looking at you  dixonena and sudap.

Well done Bjorn. You have a really great groove going on there and some nice synths.

Very trippy piece Bjorn! It has a great foundation to put some vocals over.  I love the feel of this. Nice job!

I missed this one, too, but I'm glad I finally caught up to it.  This may inspire me to try another instrumental because I have so many VSTs waiting to be explored.  As one said above, you're a damn good composer!  You put just the right amount of textures and layers in this to put me in a mood!  Good job.

Bjorn,  your creativity is so Deep and Divers (that's british spelling...divers).    Do you do any other of the arts?  Loved this, some of the best I've heard around here.  Great for a sunny morning in Portland.

What Dan says - very nice but a real melody/theme would be cool. 

Nice mix of sounds as the 2 Toms said
