When Chris (Pharmakeus) decided he would take a break from IC and the Internet, some time ago, I had the luck to be in touch with him, as we had done a couple of things together at that time. He said he would like to do something together again at some point, so, when he got back from his travels and was back in touch, I put myself at work and sent him some music. Luckily, he liked it, and provided a set of terrific lyrics, together with some heart devastating synth and guitar additions.
In brief, this is the result, and I'm so happy to be able to post it for you to hear, and hopefully enjoy smiley
Dedicated to my good and extraordinarily talented friend Chris McMahon (Pharmakeus), looking forward to his coming back in IC smiley

Pharmakeus: Lyrics, vocals, x911 synth, Stratocaster guitar

OH yeah - this is it !
VERY good sound palette.
Drums are outstanding.
Vocals and lyrics - also outstanding.
My only nit-pick (personal taste thing) is that the guitar doesn't quite fit in the space/ambience you have created with the rest of the tune. It's just a minor thing. I love the sound of it - but it sounds like it's being played in another room away from the spacey dimension you created for the rest of the track. I dunno, maybe some "splash effects" on the ends of some of the guitar phrases could help to "space it up" a bit?
Sorry if I'm off the mark with that one - just hit me on first listen . . .

I get perfect music vibes from this. I don't know, Fish, the dry guitar really gives this a CSNY touch that grooves with a pyschedelic soul. And I love that we can differ on that because that seems to make the "art" of such a fine work by Mirc and Pharm.

What a warm reception, my friends, I'm so happy!
Thanks a lot to all of you, Yosl, KS, K6, and Boss smiley
The guitar sound... well, I don't really know... The fact is I haven't thought of making it sound in a specific way (I never do, in fact, which might be my limit?), I just worked until my ear felt the sound was right (and to be completely honest I have done very very little adjustmens, as what Chris provided already sounded so well "tuned" to me with the atmosphere of the track in terms of sound).
But I'm glad and happy, as Johnny says, when talented friends provide their opinion with frankness, if they feel something doesn't sound completely right to them, as I thus have the chance of asking myself one more question when working on some other projects.

Listeners Interpretation: A small child walks up to a pond and look upon the water ripples made by the wind of reflections. An Old man watches from beyond and is intrigue as in what the small child is looking at. The old man eventually approaches up to the edge of the pond and looks in. He sees nothing, nor the wind of reflections.

Genre: Ambiance/Electronica/

PROS

{Lyrically}
With minimal wording your message is clear smiley

{Musically}
AWESOME Textures created here Gents! The sfx on the Vocal(s) mix gives this piece Dimension, nice production! Instrumentation layering managed very well. The electric guitar lead is punctual in the essence for its vibrant/tonality and is reflected perfectly with the keyboard (pitch-horns) part. The Dynamics mirror a stone cast in still water, great touch!

CONS:
None

SUGGESTIONS:
None

Bravo on the Collab!

~Doc

Great track, Mirco: hypnotic, very well conceived, originally arranged and wonderfully performed.

Trancey...

I love the vibe on this, the mix is thick and full, with everything just holding its correct place and nothing fighting sonicly for control...

Good to hear Pharm is still making music.

The guitar breaks are just tremendous, sitting so dry above the layers of rich synths, but it just works perfectly!

A great listen!

Se andasse in continuo non potrei far altro che ascoltare. Mi lascio scartavetrare dentro dalla voce mentre la musica mi culla, mi lancia in aria e mi riprende facendomi roteare. Bravi, ogni volta una conferma, MIR. Pace a te e a chi ci fa godere così.

If it go into continuous could do nothing but listen. I leave scrape inside, the voice, while the music cradle me, the music launch me into the air and I resumed making swirling. Well, whenever a confirmation, MIR. Peace be with you and who makes us enjoy that.

如果沒有進入連續無能為力,但聽。我離開scartavetrare內入境,而音樂搖籃的話,我發射到空中,我恢復做出翻滾。那麼,每當一個確認和平號空間站。願你們的人,使我們享受到了。
