I'm sure I'm missing the deeper meaning. :) I quite liked this musically. Somber and peaceful. Enough variation to maintain interest. Could it have have gone somewhere else musically? Sure. But this is an enjoyable 3 minutes.

I don't think it is dull--it's not too complex, but that does not make it dull. It is beautiful and chill--evokes a nice feeling, with some tensions and resolves throughout.

Things I wonder about: what if there were extended spots with one lone voice here and there? What did you do with the reverb--any separate eq on it for each voice--any changes to the reverb throughout the piece?

this is beautiful and let no one tell you any different.
Not complex <> uninteresting. this is good and deep nontheless.

I have to agree with the other comments, it is not dull at all. The song creates a quite gripping and cinematic atmosphere that makes you keep listening. I enjoyed it.

hey thanks to you all, for your time and listening (and the comments). i am quite surprised about the amount of ppl who actually like it :o . the making was really simple that's why i thought it could be dull. i was sitting in front of my pc "playing" actually with 1 finger on my pc-keyboard. nothing more... (ok there was a technical setup before that, but the actual playing was with one finger - it felt somehow silly :) )

hey thanks for your time and listening. there is not much reverb, it is a really long release-time.
the samplers were divided into main-voices and "accompagnement"-voives. the main voices were played with one finger (after a technical setup) - the "accompagnement"-voives were pre-programmed into a divice with 4 slots and then they were choosen randomly by the DAW. that's why there is no part with only one note.
