Authors' Notes

Hello everyone!

A somewhat classic fare, with some inspiration from BGM I've heard recently on NHK World. I recorded the both the noise, and the other sample used for whistling.

very nice echoed chords, I like it!
Nice reverb/delay, something I'll try to learn from this song.

Man your stuff is always so innovative. I hope everyone here opens up this in renoise and drops their jaw at the whistler nz track like I did. Equally beautiful acoustically and technically. Only complaint is that it doesn't really go anywhere. But the atmosphere and occasional surprising harmonies carry me through no problem :)

Can I say this is lovely and relaxed? What's NHK World incidentally? Great whistling track. As usual you always teach us something dude.

@ambtax1: NHK is Japanese public broadcasting network, NHK World is to Japan as BBC World is to Great Britain. Great track, more comments later.

I could picture this as the background music to the weather program. Makes sense, I think, given that you were inspired by listening to the radio.
I like this track: it's balanced and has a open, airy quality that's very well done.

@ambtax: as chunter says. NHK is one of the news networks I've been glued to for weeks now regarding the goings on in the east. The BGM is specifically the music played during the "world cities weather" segment, right after the main weather report, which features a whistling lead much like mine.

@emeu: hah, very good guess on the weather :)

The whistler sound is the most incredible design I have heard in some time! I wonder if Tomita used the same technique for some of his leads? Great arrangement and mix as always, I can't add much to what was already said.

Very nice progressing chill track. The slash-and-then-a-bassish-sound is very well designed and fits in great, although I would prefer it to be stayed on 1 frequency (it would become more droney and you prevent it from becoming atonal (unless that was the idea off course)).
Cool track Chotoro!
