Enjoyed it, liked the journey it took me on.
The womans "elf"-like spoken word was a nice addition, the water in the background irritated me a little (because I have misophonia!) but I realise thats its probably the fountain.
Emotional cello was ear-catching too; liked the epic vocals also.
:phones:
Thanks for the listen Ian!

'Elf' it actually was meant to be...'Italian elf' actually...so, highly appropriate for this one about Rome!

Truth - the elven snippets were recorded and originally used in a different project a few years ago, (see below towards the end) but I thought they would fit here as well.

Misophonia - huge apologies for the water then...I know that can be a serious issue!
Me with my aging bladder...just makes me wanna pee each time I listen...it was a bugger mixing it! :)

This is really good. I suppose the intro might burden the modern attention span (or lack thereof) but it resolves quite nicely into a rich vision. Well done.
Thanks for the listen and comments...

Yeah, it's 90 seconds or so until what some would call the 'main' section...and I can see why it comes across as an ' intro' as such...

The story in my head gives it more meaning than that (and it'll hopefully be the same for the project it was written for) but the narrative will probably lost on a lot of more general listeners...understood! :)

Great work! A dreams of summer and journeys made into music, that cold winter is getting worse than lockdown...
Thanks for the listen and feedback... Yeah, it's definitely got a summer vibe in some ways.

Hope that serious cold snap is finally fading away over there!

Well, the intro demands a bit from you. From about 1:30 min.
the song basically starts. Very beautiful, soulful. And the nice
thing: there is an increase in it, it is getting more and more
beautiful! Great, well done! :tu:
Many thanks for the listen and comments... Glad you picked up the rise in intensity!

The 'intro' - yeah, if you take it that way, it's a tad long for some! 😂 My narrative for the project gave it a definite role beyond just an intro to a main section, but I do understand how it comes across that way to many listeners... Fair point.
