a moment to welcome
the magnetic release

Nice work, Julio.
Especially enjoyed the final track, which was a bit of a change in mood.

Thanks Anthony.....yes the final track,  had to write all the other music just to get to the last track which was what I want to say,  though I did know it until I got there, and so it often is in life.  Love the journey.

Hope you enjoy it Harry!

Julio, I listened to this last night.  It's a beautiful work and I especially like the last track, too.  Hope you're able to get it to a wider audience.  Thanks for sharing it with us.

Appreciate the sound / production comment Pete.....it is not something I strives for consciously when composing - recording - mixing etc.  So its good to hear that!  Thanks

Give this man an official release!!  I would love to have this, especially the closing track (which I listened to several times and am in love with) on a pressed cd.

Thanks again Chris.....really appreciate it!

Funny story: We had some friends over for a dinner last night. We were outside on the patio. The windows were open and "A Tide Pool of Memories" was still playing on repeat; the sounds quietly flowing from the upstairs to the outdoor patio.  There was a pause in the conversation and someone said "that is the most lovely and soothing music I've heard in a long time." *No one* in my social circle appreciates ambient music, so this may be a break through!

Nice story Chris.....most of my family and friends have no idea what ambient music is,  sounds like film music is the usual response.  Im always forcing it on them.  It is encouraging when some die hard country music folk I know actual come around and say this is not my kind of music but it is relaxing and helps my road rage when Im driving......little steps. :)
