Hey Marlin - Nice rich sounding piece here. Everything sounds great, nicely recorded. The opening long, sustained notes are a bit foreboding but once it gets going it's very soothing indeed. eo.

Marlin: I heard birds, and bees, and creatures a lot younger than I enjoying each other. Really, really -- pretty -- I mean that as a compliment. Ott

Marlin,This sounds very nice! I like it!A couple of production notes: It feels peaky in the 200-300 hZ range which makes the rest of the mix work a bit harder to be audible, which brings up my next point: everything feels a bit "crispy" in the upper midrange. I think your speakers and/or your room may be weak in those ranges which makes you slightly overcompensate. If you have a frequency analyzer plugin, check it out and see if you're just overbalanced on those ranges. Roger Nichols makes an "Inspector" plug in which is free and works well.Compositionally it works well, it doesn't have a lot of builds in it, it kind of stays in one area, but that's OK, it works. I think you could bring in your bass notes at the beginning a bit more gradually and tastefully, more like dawn creeping in. I think it would draw the listener in more that way.Cool man, I like it!Mazz

Very nice, as good as any "Govi" song and definitely broadcast quality.

Thanks much, Glender!!!Mazz...Sonor does have a similar plug in and I'll take a look and adjust the eq on the master bus..... I dont have any real low bass in the tune. (another thing I struggle with.. weak bass in speakers and I over compensate). Good idea fading in the lower notes... was afraid to make it too dynamic due the the yoga usage.. hope that isn't a mistake.. Thank you for the taking the time....Marlin

Fading in will be better for yoga, I have a feeling.

Sounds lush but the title makes me think of me and my wife's morning breath. When the percussion enters it sets a nice vibe. One of the instruments sounds sitarish. Very effective.
