...Like music on the waters / Is thy sweet voice to me...
-- Lord Byron


Well, whaddya know... yesterday was my iComp 1-year anniversary. Has it been a year already? Time sure flies when you're having fun.

I thought it might be appropriate to mark my little personal milestone with an "anniversary" offering. This composition was actually written as a gift for my husband, in honor of our 20th anniversary (which we celebrated about a month-and-a-half ago, as of this writing). So it gets double-anniversary duty with this upload. It's not particularly romantic-sounding, but my hubby isn't much into smarmy love ballads. I tried to create something more to his tastes, while giving myself a little creative leeway in the process. Ah, compromise -- the foundation of a strong marriage... smiley

Having gotten rather tired of composing in solid, unwavering 4/4 time (to help accommodate the “choreographically-challenged” among our theater troupe), I indulged myself a bit this round, using a 7/8 meter throughout. I had intended to clean this up a bit more before posting, but I see my aforementioned darling hubby apparently borrowed my headphones for the St. Louis show. At least, I'm assuming that's where they got to; he's not back from St. Louis yet to ask. (We drove separately, due to differing schedules.) And my built-in computer speakers are pretty worthless for judging anything acoustically.

In any case, this piece is dedicated to Les, the love of my life, and the man I have to thank for helping me to rediscover the joy of music every day. smiley

Happy anniversary!
You made a beautiful BIG piece of music here - excellent composition and arrangement. Very intricate, very dynamic, and full of subtle surprises.
I generally don't like fade-outs at the end of a piece, I prefer some sort of an ending - this is the second one I hear today that actually works well ... strange, I also heard the absolute peak of (imo) lame fade-out today...

I'm once again impressed by your work. Thanks for haring.

You are such a GREAT composer!!!
Yes... time... they say it's not going but coming...but really I think it's all an illusion...
Our mind travel on 0 sec -anywere... but our bodies are so slow with our retarded speed...
If there was only immense speed - like our thought - then we could be everywhere at the same time like a radiowave, and all distance would "disappear" - all places would be the same place?
The afterlife must be something like that...
but with music I hope ha ha!

Congrats first on Both Anniversaries!!! smiley As for the track if only you could see the smile on my face... I know people thought strange of me calling you one of my favorite composers in and out of iComp. This song is a testament to that statement smiley If this mixing is a result of your computer speakers use them all the time smiley seriously though, I would use them as one of the references. Brilliant once again WOW really doesn't do it justice. As I was listening I was like yeah I would of done that, then it was ohh I didn't see that coming, which when that is done right it's the greatest compliment I can give to you. Excellent movement too by the way, you can not be a padowan_learner any more you must be a Jedi Master by now for sure. smiley Thanks for sharing

This is certainly one of the best things you've posted, perhaps best in my opinion for both composition and arrangement/mix.
Interesting melodically, good variety over the ostinato, love the 7/8, clean, solid mix, and sounds...

Ha! What could be better than 7/8? You really captured the essence of this meter. Reminds me of some stuff I've heard from the band, Iona. It's great as is, but at times it could use a soaring, silvery distorted guitar solo, but that's just me. I hope the St. Louis show went well and I'm sorry I wasn't able to drop by. Perhaps another time, yes?

this is certainly one of your masterpieces. i've experienced behind the scenes just how much time and though you put into every tiniest note-fragment that make up your dense and elaborate quilts. the devotion and attention to detail is yummy and adds spiritual richness. i'd suggest this would be an instant hit with most folk around christmas.

this is a beautiful gift and celebration and a richly satisfying listen! thank you for sharing smiley

Happy b-day and what a great tune, reminds me of some old metal from the 80's just that it is done with synths, the choir is amazing. is it you singing ?
I bet you like Therion and if not, you must check them out, they do some real heavy metal with opera on top and lots of choir smiley

The intro is supremely sublime. Love the bells? melody in this & how is carries over throughout the song. A 'constant' that is the 'glue' so to speak, in the same way the heavenly choir vox is doing that also for my ears. Hope you know what I am trying to say. This is majestic & dreamy; around the world in a track. I am savoring on each sound; your subtle attention to detail & nuance is brilliant. Fantastic work.

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