Scottish Watercolor For The... by smashmethod Scottish Watercolor For The... by smashmethod

Full title: "Scottish Watercolor For The Hybrid Mind"

This is 2 disc downtempo blend CD, very similar to "People Turning Inward." It's meant for relaxation / meditation background music, tailor-made by me to help soothe my brain of racing thoughts. So if this kind of music "helps" you too, then all the better. As the title of the CD implies, this is a more celtic influenced work, based of old celtic songs, and broad celtic themes. There is still occasional chanting, like in People Turning Inward, but this work has substantially more direction.

Disc 1 is called "The Colossal Orange Micro," and disc 2 is "The Miniature Lime Macro."

For those of you going "Why the hell are the CD's orange and lime, and the cd case and music is more scotland/celtic themed..." In case you haven't noticed, randomness if kind of my forte. And I like oranges and limes.

Any and all feedback is appreciated, I always love hearing what people's favorite or least favorite tracks are. My personal favorites are bolded. And as a general note, disc 2 is a tad more "active" than disc 1, if you find disc 1 to be too slow. Again, this is a 2-part submission, for both the design, and the music.

I love this design. I sure would love to have a much larger version of the front cover image.

I know I commented on this already, but I have to say that the Miniature Lime Macro has gotten me through so many long homework sessions ... I love it :) Set up a nice crossfade and put it on shuffle, I can go all night listening to it and workin' away. Thank you again for this :D

--The Colossal Orange Micro--

My least favorite disk of your's that I've listened to for one reason, that woman's voice. It distracts me from whatever I'm doing. It invades my mind and violates my thoughts. Well, it's not that bad, I just don't like it. The tracks without it are pretty good.

Least favorites:
The tracks with the voice

Favorites:
Plaid Shirt of Forgiveness (the voice is quiet in this track)
Natives Play Hills
Natives Play Ditch
Triumphant Return of General Cloverleaf
Chant of Sadness
People From Sportswear


--The Minitaure Lime Macro--

My favorite disk of your's. This disk is full of awesome music and I love it. I've listened to it every night as I go to sleep since I got it. The only track I actively dislike is Reflect The Situation, the rest I'm either indifferent towards or I really like it.

Least Favorites:
Reflect the Situation (A voice again!)
Collective Worth in Ashes (Just kinda boring)

Favorites:
Symphonic Cadence of Noise (I love choral peices)
Ballad For Susie
Who Killed Jester
(These are the best of the best because I really like this disk)

Wow. The pictures are just so clear and amazing! They just... I don't know how to say it, but they're really beautiful.
I like the track I'm listening to right now, "Chant of Sadness".

Yours cd's have all made it into my favorite cd's of all time,and Im pretty picky about music. Ive burned these all to cd's,and I cant stop listening to them. Ive even made copies for my parents,and they really enjoyed this and "People Turning Inwards"

I've noticed that the first disc seems to pause between tracks whereas I don't think the second one does. Nor have your previous discs.

I LOVE IT! I think it's your best so for. I've found it SO inspirational that I'm actually drawing up a list of all the gear that I want so I can start making my own music. Thanks!
