Innermost Resonance: Præteriit continues

Here's another track to go with the four in the previous post. This one is more of the usual material, some airy nonsense with fake piano and guitar sprinkled on it. A lengthy piano outtro is never a bad thing, though.

If you have an opinion about any of these musical bits and pieces, please post it below. I'd appreciate any feedback, if only so I can decide whether it's worth continuing to toss this stuff in the internet's general direction.

Some cover art to stick into your iTunes or your iPod or your Zune or whatever you listen to music with. Does anyone use a Zune anymore? Did Zunes even exist? Am I making this up?

Fine FAWM: Præteriit

Here's some cover art, should you wish to stick it somewhere. (Your options are varied.)

I wanted to participate in FAWM this year, and I gave it a shot, but ultimately I just ended up with a heap of unfinished junk. So, as you do, I've polished the junk up, and now it's called Praeteriit, and it's on Soundcloud polluting the ears of random internet passersby. You can listen to all four tracks below, if you feel so inclined.

What you get for your money, ultimately, is something pretty similar to everything I've done before, with loads of pads, too much piano, considerable overuse of the Dsus2 chord, and fairly repetitive chord structures.

There's nothing wrong with being your own worst critic. You should try it some time!

Simulation III

More music for your long-suffering ears. Here's a three-part piece with a bunch of different things going on. Much of it is general progressive fare, part diverges into a bit of sea shanty, and there's some fairly melodic piano in places. It's long -- 15 minutes -- but it's made of three separate pieces that share a theme, so, y'know. You get that. Influences for this include Porcupine Tree and Sting, which are about as disparate as things can get, really.

Enjoy. Or don't. You choose. Feel free to comment either here or on its Soundcloud.

Just a quicky, but don't steal it --

Here's a little fact I wasn't aware of, brought to you by the always educational Doctor Karl: The music on that annoying "You wouldn't steal a car.." bumper on the beginning of almost every DVD in the early '00s is...wait for it...pirated music. Dr. Kruszelnicki has provided much more information than I ever could, so I point you to the above link and leave you in peace. Should you not remember the horrid advert, here's a youtube link to refresh your memory.
