I was happy to get in touch with Dave (Snowman) Todd again. He is a prolific musician and fine online companion. He proposed to make this song with Linda Heirbaut from Belgium. She had the lyrics and main melody , Dave came up with the chords. Eric played bass and I did the violin, guitars, percussion and the mix. Hoping to work more with these guys.
Pat & Amelia, the amenable Bent Cousins were kind enough to ask me to do something with their song Copenhagen. I was lucky to get a saxophone part from Mark Hoogslag almost immediately after asking him. So the mix I made and backing track I made was sort of jazz oriented.
You can hear & follow Bent Cousin here:

Imagine yourself running though the forest, and the trees running with you in a way. No path follows a straight line here.
Inspired by minimal techno / house music from Berlin on the lable Ostgut. This track has 128 BPM and features a freeware Minimogue VST that you can read about and download on the KVR website.
Had the pleasure to visit (one of) the most beautiful Lighthouse(s) in the Netherlands – Brandaris in the Waddensea
Maybe not the most appropriate combination, but I felt like experimenting a bit with a mandoline piece. I added reverb in the mix, and 3 tracks of freeware VST synths. You can hear and download an MP3 version and download loose FLAC stems from CCmixter:
