    It's not really a style I'm into, although it sounds well-produced for what it is. I'm not sure what you were looking for by posting this...you didn't provide any details. Were you looking for comments on the mix? On the song itself?

    The majority of the members here are into more of an "organic" style of recording - mics on real instruments and amps.

    I would suggest that you post this style on a forum or site that catered more towards synth/VSTi/sample - based productions.

    This doesn't mean that you can't post this style here - of course you are welcome to do so, but you will probably get more comments on a site that leans more towards midi sequencing/ electronica/techno - than you will here.

    Wow maybe he's just sort of wondering how real engineers feel about what we're listening to? After all, he's Italian.

    It's like techno electronica. It's got a groovy sounding human voice thingy in it. You know it's human. It sounds human. Though it's incomprehensible. Which makes it all the more spooky. And since the whole thing is basically in a minor key, it certainly gets that frenetic spooky across.

    When I was younger, I was into this kind of electronic music avant-garde. When you've heard it and been doing it, since it was invented, it becomes all more of the same. It's mechanical. It isn't human. Though it is a creative work of musical art. What I rush out and buy it? No... not my cup of tea. Not even my pizza. Chianti? Maybe Chianti? It'll make everything sound good.

    Now I want some pasta for dinner. See what you did to me? I think this work of yours made me hungry? It got the juices flowing. Of course I could have been from something I had to eat last night?

    Why don't you go back and play with your Lamborghini & Maserati's? Okay so your Moto Guzi or your Ducati? Undoubtedly, you'll be able to afford one of those, once this hits Italian dance clubs.

    I love minestrone with lots of Parmesan.

    Hey, thank you both for taking your time to listen to my "work".
    Indeed it may sound a little passee. But I am still trying to find my spot in the vast and solitaire land of electronic music... so please bear with me!

    By the way, I would recommend anyone a couple glasses of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aglianico_del_Vulture to sweeten the spirit.

    No doubt you are working on an art form that you are enjoying. And it is enjoyable to listen to. It was cool sounding. It had something to say. And I would imagine, your stout "stick-to-it-tivness" From whence the country were all of those incredible cars and bikes come from, I know it's going to continually improve. If Giuseppe Verdi can write a Requiem, so can you.

    Those of us that walk the mall's, all know the directions to The Carnegie Hall's. I think it's a clothing store in NYC?
