Hey Guys!

I has been over a year since I have posted music on this forum. I have returned with a Downtempo track. It is a redone version of a previous track I posted years ago called Becoming Him. That version had a clip form the film Face/OFF. However, I wanted to find a Public Domain film to use instead, which I found in the Frank Sinatra film Suddenly. I made various other changes with my current knowledge. The clip fit perfectly with the track. I hope you enjoy it and give me some constructive feedback if you want.

I think the dialog makes it interesting.
But I think its overdone - too much too often. We need time to digest it and pause to take in both the music elements and whats being said. Sometime less is more.

Thanks for your feedback. I was wrestling around with whether to have it play quotes throughout the track or the whole thing. I will revise and repost the update soon.

The dialog reminds of an old module from modarchive I downloaded many years or decades ago. The voice is so similar. Probably both are from the same period. I like the chord progression and the mysterious dreamy feel of the song.

I have updated the track to cut some parts from the movie sample to give more space to the track. Thanks everyone for the feedback!

That boomy feel was a left over from the older version of it. I wanted to stay "faithful" as it were to the original "Becoming Him" track. The sub bass used to be more aggressive but was really toned down in this version. Thanks for the lstening!
