We have a nesting box on our house. I have put a small video camera in it with infrared light so we can see at night also without disturbing the birds.

This year we have a pair of blue t i t s that are currently feeding 8 hungry babies.

It is so cute to follow how they start as tiny tiny, and grow day by day. So far all 8 remains alive. On the picture you only see 6 beaks but they are there all 8.

The parent birds feed them from sunrise till sunset every minute or so. It is hard work.

I made this music inspired by watching them. The sound you hear in the beginning is a recording I made with a microphone just outside the box.

agree with ihussain about the song info itself. a brief, but pleasant read. the music is very 'earthy' and would make a great documentary soundtrack with the vids.

@ihussain and @sammydix

Thanks for the kind feedback.

Iqbal - yes I spent a small fortune on buying the Native Instruments Komplete 8. I have still not tried half of what comes with it and even the stuff I tried I do not yet know how to tweak. There are millions of sounds waiting to be made. I must admit I mainly use presets and maybe tweak a knob or two. Otherwise I end up just programming a synth a whole day and do not get to play my keyboard.

On this track the line up is simple. Only 9 tracks.

Piano is NI Kontakt Berlin Grand
The flute sounds are NI Reactor Carbon -a patch called Afluent with small tweak
The other melody instrument that sounds like brass/accordion is NI Massive - patch called Brass Model
The bell sound is NI FM8 - Dream Synth
Strings are from - NI Kontakt Session Strings. I just use standard chords on a generic ensemble sample
Bass is standard Logic Liverpool Bass
The bell sound in the beginning of the track which also has some bass sound is a NI Reactor with a synth called Razor and a patch called Glass Bells with a small tweak
And finally drums are NI Kontakt Abbey Road Modern Drums.

So - that was all my secrets smiley

It is always nice to hear how a piece of music is conceived in the first place and how it progresses into a full blown arrangement. You've put quite a bit of work into both areas here. Well done to achieve this with this delightfully tuneful piece. I use Komplete 8 as my main source of instrument sounds, perhaps tweaking a little here and there with the various synthesizers contained therein, but I like you am overwhelmed by the thousands of sound possibilities.

Kontakt has currently the best 3rd party Virtual instrument sample makers making for it. Although I usually dislike block chords with little movement I think they sit well within this track. The Melody is lovely and to me is what I strive for in all my pieces wether action or romantic. Lovely listen

Delightfully charming. Sweet, like a children's tune (which is, I suppose, what it is, given the inspiration source). I particularly loved the melody voices -- soaring and clear and uplifting. Plus, having that infrared camera peeking in on the little fellows is so freakin' cool.

i remember using those sounds and making them -
but the grandiose method of mixing used here is something special -

Ah ****! You write something else I don't find often. FYI I did a community service project over two years with high school kids creating a bluebird trail through our town. Put up nest boxes all over and going to keep doing it till we hear news reports that blues are taking over the world. Nurturing life is a fine hobby. Watching it grow and thrive is a fine reward. It's good sometimes to be a teacher.

Your hard work on the beginning of the track does not go unappreciated here.

Kenneth, you always make refreshing tunes with uplifting themes. Good tune for the boids. smiley
Glad to find another NI user. I recently sprung for "the Mouth" but only find it of limited value with very little support, like if they don't talk about it maybe it will go away. But I do like most all of their other things.

Your inspired music is a glorious wonder. You're lucky to be witnessing this in your own home. The picture stays in my mind as the music plays. I can just imagine this playing as they one by one leave the nest. Beautiful.

A very convincing, circumstantial, improvisatory piece of music.
Great choice & blend of sounds. It's good that you are inspired by such a natural thing. Nesting box is almost impossible for me here as I live in an apartment downtown.

Somehow I thought I had commented on your adventure with the birds, but I guess I only viewed their progress on your web page! Beautiful and calming music! Something I would listen to when I need to relax from the daily stresses! Very nice my friend! Has a Celtic influence to it!
