Genre this time is folk music with a Nordic sound and feel. I use a mix of traditional instruments, synth, and voice. The rhythm is slow (75 bpm) and strong but without heavy drum beating. A folky tune that would be great to grab each other in the hands and dance in a large circle. Like I experienced people doing in Barcelona when they dance the Sardana.

I love the piano downward arpeggio introduction and then the delicate melody with the synth pad, gentle cymbal in the background. Some surprising notes used here, along with unusual chord changes, giving the sense of a wind-up toy not walking quite where you expect it to. Then breaking out into the charged second half.

Gorgeous use of vocal too.

This is 75 BPM? It sounds much much faster.

A truly amazing piece. I agree totally with @thsantac about the MO influence. Which is a good thing! You could be influenced by much more inferior artists than that smiley

I particularly noticed the discrete phased synth in the last half. A nice piece of icing on the cake.

Excellent composition Kenneth. I like eveything in it. The nice piano playing on the back and the introduction of all instruments.Like all said already above a real Gem (in Mike Oldfield style that is one of my favorite musician...I could almost ear in my head the melody he could add on this masterpiece smiley ) BRAVO !

I love it. Dreamy reverie; melding many world spices & flavors for my ears. I am getting a Greek dance/celebration vibe from this. Opening or closing music for the Olympic games. Has a ancient mystical quality, yet at the same time completely modern. Timeless music. Great work.

Thanks for sharing with us, masterful original composition, performance & crystal clear production.

WIth each new track of yours that I experience, I become increasingly impressed by your compositional and production talents. This was absolutely fabulous -- while it builds slowly, each little addition adds to the anticipation and excitement. By the time the track had reached the three-quarters mark, I actually felt myself getting goosebumps. Out-frakkin'-standing.

I really like this Kenneth, it is so unusual. A slow, deceptive build lures the listener in.
Some great sounds and playing, notably the piano.
The zither like melody line weaves around the backcloth like a nymph until the very last note.

Thanks for sharing this unique piece. Very much enjoyed.

The two-chord beginning blossoms from a traditional sound to a lively dance. The transition to vocals is REALLY COOL with a nice piano background. And it builds from there, with drama and intent. A stirring and heart-felt song, well-constructed, well-paced. Love the energy!!!

Thank you so much for the nice reception of this track which does not really belong in any genre.

Many of you mention Mike Oldfield. Yes. His music was on my mind. I guess it always is in anything I do music wise. He is a great source of inspiration. Thierry mention QE2. That is my all time favorite Mike Oldfield album. I love the pure and clear sounding music on that album. That is the sound I always try to make on my music. I am happy it is noticed.

Very cool - the opening piano riff reminds me of one of the very first pieces I composed - when I had much more classical influence in my compositions - makes me want try recording it some day.

So very cool! I love how the rhythm AND the melody build around each other. Simple yet so sublime. Your mix is so very well balanced also, a lot more people should listen to this just for that alone. By the way, I'm Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and Native American. I can relate to the nordic sound!
