Really, really beautiful and brilliantly done. Do you mind sharing the technical and recording details?

Beautiful...haunting...reminds me of Sergei Prokofiev. [Peter and the wolf]

Jeeeeeezzuzz! I was pretty blown away by this - a beautifully written piece. Oe of the very few I've hear here or anywhere lately that actually touched my black, hardened old heart. Obviously professionally recorded (which, sort of, is a cheating a bit - but I forgive you). It all ended way too soon. I could feel an urge to try for a vocal on top of this. That, plainly, would ruin it! Can we have some more please sir??

Typo correction - second sentence - "one of the very few I've heard here"

i didn't realize this was from a movie, and was hoping for drum and bass with weird samples of hispanic people talking about superman and aquaman interlaced. Then i got it and clicked "more inside" to see if i was right.

Whoops! Sorry I never checked back here for comments! Thanks for all the positive feedback.

Technical details are pretty simple....its a REALLY low budget movie, so basically synth only. But I wanted to spend a little extra for certain scenes and hired a violinist (1), an alto flute player (the soloist), and then played some of the brass parts myself.

I suppose you can call it "professionally" recorded, though we did it in my friend Preston's half-finished garage (he DOES have a Pro Tools system in there though).

But anyway thanks for the support! I will post more...
