The Meaning of Life

This one is an older song of mine. It is one of my gems, well at least I consider it to be. Lots of piano, synth, strings. A classical feel to it along with bass, but it isn't as pronounced. A very relaxing track with a good deal of atmosphere created. I only wish the production/clarity were better. This was before I had proper cords for full Stereo sound.

I hope you all like it. :)

Pretty cool! I think I've heard this before..love the mix. Great fade-in intro, and love the vibe from the beginning. Vocal fx kinda threw me for a loop at first, but were a nice touch. Awesome groove from then on...

Love this track, Rob!

great work Rob. This sounds like the opening intro to some History channel show. Great strings and flawless beat work for an oldie....

Yeah, I think I`ve heard this one before but that doesn`t stop it from being any less cool.

Even though it`s an old track all your trademarks are still there, wonderful production, superb use of synths and just a gorgeous melody. I particularly like the hi pass frequencies used.

Superb.

Thanks all.... The clarity and production levels aren't there, but it is one of my all-time favorites. It is peaceful to me... Sometimes it is thought provoking too.

Thought provoking indeed. Very powerful introduction.

OOOOOH Very nice work with the vocal sample. What is it saying???
I love those classic 90's style drums! They are very minimal and simple - a nice touch, but.....I can't help wondering how they would sound with more going on.
I like what you have done with the acid squelch filtering in and out about all over the place. Harmonises very well too.

This is quite dramatic, could work in some kind of Sci Fi film in a dramatic moment where a black hole is sucking in the space ship that all the characters are in!

Thanks for the comments.

Rikki, The vocal Sample is "Today we search for the meaning of life ...... We search within ourselves" and that's my voice altered with Audacity... Yeah I wanted to keep the drums very minimal focusing more on the piano and strings.... A black hole sucking in the space ship.. Hmmm may have given me an idea for a song. THANKS!
