I first heard him with this, which is still a favorite. The violin soloist in this recording, the one that I first heard, is a prodigy. The end is a subtle leading into stillness.

Poetic music, no lyrics.

ooo, nice and purdy, thanks for sharing!

it is nice but does not "Call to me" like Fantasia - which seem more "brooding" "big" in sound.

since you offered a "peaceful" work, i must do the same and offer a "happy" work from one of my fav "new age" bands, Nightnoise.

first track esp. "silky flanks" i think is the name of first track - all their works are exellent, so hear them out if you have not before:

oh and of course - full respect to the creators of that old PC game Homeworld 20 yrs ago (and the two sequels too).

paul rusky - won and award in 99 for this soundtrack to the PC game: he Taranic Raiders song was included in a cut in first season of Portlandia - lol.

great "new-age/arabic/east indian" fusion GOG (good old games (used to be a free link, gone now for while sadly) offers his soundtrack for $ if interested).

he did the soundtrack of homeworld 2 and collaborated with another guy for homeworld cataclysm.

all excellent PC games - they stopped making smart pc games 2 decades ago sadly.

best playthrough of original game - with full graphics (still looks good for 2 decade old game - have to do a few things to make it work in windows 7/8/10 though).

"The Keeper is aware. The Keeper understands. The Keeper has seen the enemy." lol, that is from the sequel.

Holy crap - that was really f'in good!! It pretty much summed up what I was quizzing about that long journal entry of yours!

I got one in a similar vain called 'Twork' - a lot shorter and nowhere near as good as that one. :)

I read it before you posted the above; indeed, it's similar.
Happy to have found a fan in you, attofishpi.
No idea what your name means, by the way.

Though many attempt rhyme very few succeed. On this site, I didn't think anybody could. I was obviously wrong!

To create a good rhyme,
You will need some time,
'Coz if you don't succeed,
It ain't worth a dime.
