Wow! That's fantastic!

Could only listen to a few minutes of the intro as I'm working on some intrications at the moment
and need to maintain focus - but I'll return later.

Cheers

Thanks for your time Tom. Hope you'll enjoy the rest of the track too.

I agree. Really good rendering of the underlying concept of being in the woods. This is the type of thing I'll want to listen to again, with full attention, to let the images seep in. Thanks, and good job!

I listened to the first part and thought it was OK, although it didn't really connote being in the woods for me. But then, maybe I don't know forests: according to Led Zeppelin, they "echo with laughter". Forests don't echo, although caves do.

In any case thanks for your attention. I'm a truckdriver, not a musician. And don't even play one instrument properly. This is the best result I can come up with so sorry if it's not evocative enough. I compose to please myself. Over the years I've learnt it's impossible to please everyone. I'm just happy if I please others with something I created, just as I'm happy myself with this track. So again thanks for listening.....

Being a non-musician myself, I can attest that composing to please oneself can be a great source of satisfaction, thus a powerful source of motivation. Unfortunately, pleasing my inner critic is often quite hard!  :D
Anyways, I've subscribed to your Soundcloud channel and will be exploring your music with great interest.

I've lived in a city for the past 12 years after living around forests for a long time. I write my music about this sort of thing and your music is very evocative, especially with the reverb. Forests do echo!

I imagine if you shouted at a sequoia you might get an echo  :laugh:
