    Talking 2112 Scores A Picture!

    Here is the picture: (I drew it myself) . If you don’t like the music – free desktop wallpaper.



    The picture represents connections being made in the brain – an idea, a thought, an emotion, a memory, a conclusion, and so on. In the distance, you see one that has just happened (looks like a star) and in the foreground a connection that is about to happen. And look at all those spirals!

    Sample Libraries used:
    Garritan Strad (Garritanus Stradiphishius)
    EWQLSO Gold Pro XP
    EWQLSO Platinum Pro XP (for close mics)
    EWQL Stormdrum
    EWQL Symphonic Choirs
    QL VOTA
    Bela D Media Lyrical Distortion 1 and 2
    Scarbee J-Slap n Fingered Bass
    SI Fender Telecaster
    Bela D Media Giovani
    Post Organ Toolkit

    Virtual Synths used:
    Korg Legacy Digital Edition
    Cameleon 5000
    Wusikstation
    RavityS
    Kubik
    RGC z3ta

    Shrimp Kabobs, Shrimp sandwich, Shrimp casserole …tha…that’s about it. Oh, and wifey did the voiceover (crazy stuff in there).
    Oh. Here's the tune:
    Grand Cathedral of the Human Mind

    OR

    Re-MIX (more high end) Watch your monitors/speakers!
    Grand Cathedral of the Human Mind Remastered

    Based upon this picture? I'm waiting for the music you wrote for Mona Lisa or a 10 minutes action scene.

    Really like it!

    Regards

    Cool! I heard a dash of Elton John's Funeral For A Friend (I think that's the title) and (of course) a touch of Rush.

    LMFAO!!!
    Still listening.
    Wait maybe he's serious.

    Oh.

    wait. Sorry.

    OK. Still LMAO. Maybe just LOL... or L.....?

    Man I never know with you guys. Is this over the top? Or just really "From the heart?" I mean, I can hear that it's sounds great "right out of the box"* but is it like, deep? or what?? Why do I have a strong urge to run to Long John Silvers?


    *Apparently lots of boxes. That reminds me of a joke about a girl who might lose her virginity, but she'll never lose... Oh hell I forget. Goddam synaptic spirals... if someone would just draw me a picture

    Most Excellent!

    Ern: thank you! I thought of you during the last bit. I was going to add a bell tree but that would be a dead givaway.

    Ha! It sure comes in handy on Thursdays! Thanks Roberto! You are very gifted composer and I am so pleased that you like it.

    Kai - Thank you! I think part of it would fit in the Da Vinci Code Movie - but those Hollywood guys aren't cool enough for me.

    Jeffn1 - thanks as always

    Sinkd -
    Is this over the top?
    Yes.
    I mean, I can hear that it's sounds great "right out of the box"* but is it like, deep? or what??
    Hehe as deep or as shallow as one wants.
    Why do I have a strong urge to run to Long John Silvers?
    I see it has had the desired effect.

    Thanks Sinkd

    Geronimo - Sorry I made you miss your episode, but I'm glad you like it.

    Thanks again all!

    Brian, This is like a trip down memory lane!

    Hints of ELO, Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Mike Oldfield. etc.....
    The drums stand out too, for one reason. They KEEP TIME, and are PLEASANT to listen to, without being OVERPOWERING, and OTT, a welcome change from much of today's fare.

    I'm with AWB on this one though, given your proud heritage.
    Where's the highland warpipes?

    Most enjoyable my friend,

    Alex.

    (I'm off to dig out the old recordings. Sigh. They were the days....)

    Wow Brian. Long live Prog rock. Are you running all those plugs on one computer? Just curious. Great job. I do agree that there is a lack of high end energy in the mix. Even a push in the 18k range should help. I really want to know how many PCs you are running to run that many plugs. I've heard that SC is a hog. Thanks for sharing.

    Eric
