quite enjoyed this relaxing composition ...
had me drifting ... i particularly liked the ride cymbals , towards the end ...
i think you may be losing some detail / separation to the wet mix of the reverb ...

Thanks for the useful feedback.
Will look into potentially drying up the mix a bit.

Ooh I like the performance of this.
What a beautiful name for a song also!

It's the king of chillout songs. Those cymbals...yummie

Lovely combination of timbres in there...very well blended as well.

Overall the piece works very well. I would personally have liked to hear a little more of a contrasting section + a little more of a dramatic rise to it all, but maybe that would've been too much?

It's a great piece for unwinding to at the end of a tiring day. I liked the relaxing progressions and the pad sounds were right in the middle of the chillzone. Great job with the delayed guitar sound and a nice wrap-up at the end.

Good work :)

Really nice guitar based ambient music. Quite relaxing and calming.

I imagined maybe a sax solo some where but then it would be more soft jazz although it probably does have some underlying jazz elements.

Ooh, very dreamlike, was a touch of resonance, but this is inconsequential as I floated along on the sands :tu: :D

Has echos of the music in Rimworld with the slides and general vibe. I like the music in Rimworld, so that's good :)
