This is an improv-based track.  Still fighting with trying to get
decent levels and dynamics in mixing.  This one can be basically
acoustic guitar over a synth bass and drums.  With some extras
characterized as loops.

Whoa.  Am listening to the soundcloud upload now.  It is incredible how
much processing  goes behind the scenes.  The soundcloud version sounds
much more "upfront" (for better and/or for worse) than what I have
locally here.

The lineup is: as always, Shiraki acoustic guitar.  Bass is u-he ACE
init patch.  Played drums consists of a bass drum and a snare samples.
That would be basically it and captures the spirit of the improv.  But
then, other elements were added as decorations.  Amongst these there is
a u-he Zebra patches from The Unfinished and Colin Neff, a u-he
Bazille patch, and loops from Perimeter Sound, Mode Audio and Earth

All recorded in the Mixbus variation of Ardour with good help of
Robin Gareus x42 meter plugins.

Again, the struggle is to get decent dynamics and mixing levels that
brings life to a piece with confidence that it will not overload a
listener's audio system or require drastic change from the previous
pieces that were listened to, taking into account genres.
