Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away

Hi again, and welcome back once again to the Gauntlet of Balthazar for another installment of the BandCamp hosted 391 & the Army of Astraea Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away.

Today's languorous recording is called "Hanging Gardens", which is an obvious reference to the ancient Mesopotamian Hanging Gardens of Babylon. This was quite intentional of course as this soundtrack heavy piece is very trance-like and contains a number of sounds in addition to piano (prepared and otherwise) like bells, lute, and eastern drums which were included specifically in order to play up the faux-ancient quality. The composition was built around around a highly variegated rhythm track recorded in Pete Lockett's "Drum Jam" mobile music app, which is, I must admit, a very easy to use bit of programming with remarkably "real" sounding percussion samples. So, definitely, give it a check out.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this, regardless of the "background" quality of the piece.

Till next time.
