Title: Solace Found in Summer Fields emotive piano piece FREE mp3
Post by: Sonic Soul Searcher on January 27, 2008, 05:54:52 PM
 :) Hi All,

This is an instrumental piece called 'Solace Found in Summer Fields'. This version is totally acoustic and recorded live in one take, with absolutely no studio trickery or effects, as it was written and recorded especially for an 'Unplugged' challenge.

Played on a slightly detuned early 1900's Blankenstein overstrung upright Piano and best listened to on headphones or very good speakers to hear the deeper chords and natural string reverberation (captured using 3 mics).

Here's a direct link:

Hope you like it.  Please give me your thoughts if you'd like to.

Very nice.  I like the detuned sound of the piano.  It has a very nostagic feel.

Very beautiful.  The detuned phase effect just gets to me.  Makes my head go funny.  I like the main motif too, the one it ends on.  Great work!

 :) Hi to all here, and sorry it's taken so long to reply. I've had a very, very, very busy summer, but luckily for me things are slowing down a little bit now.

Many thanks to you lena, Forrest and deepspace, for your kind remarks about this quite personal piece. I'm so glad to hear that people are enjoying this.

I've just put a new track up, so please look for my other message here.

You're welcome, and thank YOU for writing it...  :)

I still think it's hauntingly beautiful, and I  really love playing my cello along with it from time to time.

 I'm going to listen to your new one right now!
