  • Kiageha (Swallowtail)



    This is my most recent ambient/experimental piece. It was inspired by the lifecycle of the swallowtail butterfly. Please listen with headphones if you can, and thanks for listening!

    Patch Notes

    This track includes both generative and manually played parts. As always, my goal was to weave these various elements into a cohesive whole.

    A little sweet in the tooth for me. But undeniably lush and very pleasant, well done. Nice choices of sounds/instruments too. Feels like a soundtrack, would be perfect for that.

      Very nice indeed, Alan

      Liking the jazz elements to this piece... Well, Pat Metheny sort of jazz, I think.


      And, as you know, I have a sweet tooth

        Thanks, Jan. I really appreciate the kind words. I mostly write these songs for my wife (I have very few ambitions musically otherwise), so they tend toward the sweet, which is her preference. :-)

          Yes, indeed! I appreciate the Metheny reference, I’m a big fan going back all the way to the 80’s. Thanks a bunch!

            That´s sweet and far more original than buying flowers once a month!
            Yeah, my darker ambient stuff isn´t something I´d push onto my GF, to be honest! ;)
            Thanks for sharing the music, very enjoyable

              Hi Jan,

              I just checked out the single from your new album. Very cool stuff, love the textures and intricate parts. I’m looking forward to hearing the full album and I’ll be checking out your back catalog.

              Thanks again, Alan.

                Well done !
                Nice to make music according to your wife's preferences. I agree.
                Maybe Pat Metheny, but rather Andreas Vollenweider for me (sounds and arrangements)

                          Very arctic sounding like something from Andreas Vollenweider.
                          I liked the sounds, very fresh. I thought the generated notes were over used. I would have been more conservative and let them sound for 4 bars every 8 - 10 bars. I think this would help to bring a greater focus to the atmosphere and your very nice played melody. Having them hit every 8-10 bars helps to hold our anticipation for it rather then it going on all the time. It also help to create a 'stride'.

                              Considering what I wrote, that response was insulting to me. No more soup for you!
