Michelle likes SeaStars 2007!

From my friend, Michelle:

So, overall I liked it, which I should mention is quite an accomplishment because I’m not usually into pure instrumental new-age-ish music. (If I can characterise it that way.)

I felt that the background wave sound could have been a bit subtler in a bunch of the songs, particularly in the first track, Sea Shore Days. It worked well for a bunch of the other songs, though, e.g. Into the Deep (suitably mysterious).

The screechy bits in Starfish were a bit…weird, but some of the other “surprises” brought a smile to my face.

Overall I think I liked the quieter songs in the latter half better, particularly those with the lighter beats.

Sea Breeze remains my favourite, the melody is there and somehow it speaks to me, and I find it very evocative of a walk on a lonely beach.

Nice work overall…glad I got the chance to listen to it. Thanks for sending it along (and don’t bother with a CD, I’m not a physical media type person anymore…)

Incidentally, Michelle mentioned that the download page was hard to access. It failed 2 out of 4 times when she tried (I suspect it’s because it’s a temporary page and therefore not that stable).

Anyway, glad you liked it Michelle!

Thanks for your time.
