I've been backing off from software work lately, so here is yet another chill-out album. These are mostly new tunes, but with a few 'reconditioned' ones - in particular 'Breathe' my all time fave :)

I listened first 4 tunes.
Beautiful themes and restful moods.
I liked the orchestrations and sounds.
I'll listen more later

Hi Jesse,
I've been rather quiet on here for some time now - I've been tied up with software work, and that tends to suck the creativity out of you. Still, I'm delighted you enjoy these.

Just took a listen to your nice ambient music tracks from that link above @folderol, very calming and relaxing, also would easily suit as movie soundtrack, especially, your "Mystery" track I found very touching. Keep it up :tu:
Without ROLAND's awesome Synths, the greatest music decades in the 80s and 90s wouldn't exist the way they do now. :phones: And yes, I'm a big fan of Roland!

I just played the whole album. It's nicely put together, with a strong "unified" sound and feel. My favourite tracks were the last three - Dreamer, Night Whispers and Breathe. I'm helping a friend move house tomorrow, and these tracks, in partnership with a pint of Bombardier, have helped create the "calm before the storm".

Good work :)

I see you've been busy on Bandcamp 8)

I listened last half of the album. Got same thoughts than the first half.
Album is good cohesive whole. Well mixed beautiful sounds. Great job.

Thanks again peeps
@ seismic1
Yes indeed. As well as the original Misty, there's a recovered (and improved) collab with offthewall (also of this parish) Gone Fishin'. It had suffered a near fatal disk corruption :(

I'm currently working on updating a collection of older work. These were done with two hardware synths. I only have one of them now, and that is about 20 years old, so as well as improvements, there will be a degree of future-proofing.

I just listened to all of this on my evening walk. Perfect, mood-setting music! Very nice work.

I thought I would check out a few tracks but listened to the complete album. Quite a soothing treat for my frayed nerves. A very nice way to unwind on a Sunday evening. Thanks for sharing. :tu:
