Marena's approach

Post by psyocean »

Sketch improvisation. For relax :) E-piano, Rhodes-like, only.

Marena (Mara, Morena) - from tales at ancient Slavs: the goddess of winter, winter cold and death.

A nice, gentle sound. I might imagine the goddess of winter, cold, and death to be somewhat less gentle than that. But if winter, cold, and death are coming, then I guess we can only hope that they will come gently!

Very pretty sound.
I think for most of life, winter is a time of sleeping rather than death, with the awakening in springtime of course.

Milo, thank you! Where do you live - there are snow go on? In Petersburg winter are absent now: no snow, no cold. And no sunshine, grey grey sky :cry: Forecasters promise us winter next month :D

Folderol, thank for comment! I agree, winter is not death, but in text mean that Marena is goddess different things, no equivalent one to one, order separate things: winter, <x1>, <x2>, <x3>, <...> and also death. May be deep sleep in this order too :wink: I don't know, in Wiki no more words :D Explorers of Slav mythos write that root "Mor", "Mora", "Mara" associated with death, in phonetic-historical links. In spring scarecrow of Marena burn on fire :shock: But it in March, now Marena slowly rise power! :mrgreen:

Yes, we have snow. There was a White Christmas in Utah (Western USA).

Very nice piano improv. Too short ! To compensate I've played it three times in a row.

Winter ? What winter ? No snow, no cold. Was -14 a month ago, now back to almost lawn mowing.

Cheers.

Jonetsu, thank you for comment! I glad, that you want more lenght of this music :) Usually many people no have any time, life follow in mode "go quickly, say short, we must run, run" :D So music in web more 4 minutes per track - people deside: "he thief our time!" :mrgreen: Therefore, I am embarrassed to plays for a long time in track, although before the Internet-age I recording solid improvisations quite often for 30 minutes. Or maybe I'm just getting old, exhausted :D

Now in some Nord-region over -40C :!: Happy New Year, dear! :wink:

I like these sounds very much -- they bring crystal bells to mind.

I find myself wondering what it might sound like if the main voice gently panned (maybe even with a light phaser).

I liked this one a lot -- it took me somewhere, that is for certain.
