Many months were spent working on the compositions, getting the right sounds for the songs, and mixing. No point looking back at this and thinking 'THIS should have been done better'. Tonepoet extremely proud of this work and has put his best effort into making it. He set out to do some specific things with this particular release.
First, he wanted it to be over one hour. No more than him having a goal to write over an hour's worth of music that he's completely over-the-top stoked about . Second, he wanted to slip in a bit more classical influences, be a bit more daring with chord changes, allow some influences to come through (Vangelis, Pink Floyd, and Hammock to name a few) and stretch the ear for the listener. Third, he wanted to compose and do some arranging on piano, and record the results. The basic tracks were 100% (even the keyboards), then fleshed out with enhancements. And fourth, he wanted to keep it free so that ANYONE can have access to it.
Feel free to use this music for films, sleeping, reading, sharing with friends, as an aural backdrop to create a soundtrack to your life………….whatever. Please just give Tonepoet credit. It should be mentioned (for no real reason) that the track Showers Of Lilac was a recorded improvisation mostly based (with a few alterations here and there) on the greatest song of all time: Purple Rain. Hence the title (think about it). It was recorded on 30th anniversary (released June 25th, 1984). Tonepoet is a HUGE Prince fan.
That's it, enjoy the music. Peace.
