Here is another Lava track. This one has the unromantic title Reel 2 Song 1. Such a pretty piece deserves a nicer title, a more evocative title… well, pretty except for the freakout towards the end.

Anyway, I am NOT done with this piece. I just got started. There is more cleaning up to do. If you listen closely, you hear the hum of amps and other stuff. I usually clean up the individual tracks a little, cutting out the hum when an instrument is not playing, because if the quiet is more quiet, it creates more space and clarity and dynamics. So here is a first mix, with another one to come in a couple of months. I am also contemplating doing a version without that loud section…

You can download the 24/48k FLAC here.

The 320kbps mp3 file can be downloaded here.

    Really beautiful. Nice anticipation of the thought of hearing another version, too.

    Ottmar, this is absolutely beautiful and I like the freakout too! I guess you’ve heard the version on Seals ‘System’ album (its called Rolling). It caught me by surprise to hear Seal sing over it. The 2 versions are not comparable really (though Seal does have a great voice)- but, in my opinion, your version is far superior.

    Gerry: Can’t say I have. I am not familiar with either album or song.

    I find it’s like a calm summer day, a storm moves in & out quickly & then it’s calm again.
