Haha. Yes, I like how the porn samples contrast the hammy song comments section, which is talking endlessly about the author's diary of emotions, including a questionable poem collection. But ok, the guy was ~18 at the time, so I won't hold him accountable. ;)

The music is kind of funny too: The piano is in going nowhere mode, the pseudo-surround and wall-of-sound like effect is tacky and overall it's just hammy as it could be. Still, it's an enjoyable tune, even though I'm not sure whether the humor was intended or not at all. :)

It is too dirty sometimes (that fat loop doesn't help obviously) and the scale transposing is cheap. Yet I like it a lot, the melody is really great at moments.

Superbly composed new age, enigmatic and epic. This has a lot of elements in it to listen to - the artist has also written what appears to be a novel length comment in his module, heh... well Acumen certainly was in an expressive mood :) Make your own mind up on this one, I personally like it a lot, with the exception of the overuse of the unchanging drum loop.

I've had SOS since a few days after its release...and, at that time, I used to listen to it everyday. If I rate this as I would have back then, Serenity of Silence is a 10. There's no doubt about that. SOS is done in the same style as Out of the Blue. It starts out slow with several vocals and sfx, builds to a first climax, lightens up sporadically in the middle, and finally hits the peak climax (at about 4:30) and fades away. There are a lot of vocals that play throughout the track: Gregorian monk chants, Clint Eastwood, Keanu Reeves, and even Jenna Jameson straight out of some porno. The judges at the Heavenly Music Competition seemed to have a problem with Jenna Jameson's orgasm, but the use doesn't really bother me. There are some splendid piano melodies carrying most of the track, they are backed by some synth strings and the usual Acumen drumloops. I've never had any complaint about Acumen technically, besides the drumloops. They're great loops, there's just not enough variation. But, here again...Serenity of Silence has been looping for 45 minutes and I tend to get meticulous about percussion. Forget I even mentioned it! Download this and listen to it everyday.

    - Serenity of Silence -

      8bit public version

      Composed by Acumen (Milan Kolarovic)

     acumen_kolumbus.fi
     http://www.kolumbus.fi/acumen



  When Mozart was composing at the end of eighteenth century,
  the city of Vienna was so quiet that fire alarms could be
  given verbally, by a shouting watchman mounted on top of
  St. Stefan`s cathedral. In twentyfirst-century society,
  the noise level is such that it keeps knocking our bodies
  out of tune and out of their natural rhythms. This ever
  increasing assault of sound upon our ears, minds, and
  bodies adds to the stress load of civilized beings
  trying to live in a highly complex enviroment.

    - Steven Halpern -



  Thoughts.

  Right at this very moment it`s hard to describe how I feel,
  it`s just so overwhelming. The song came out better than
  I could have ever imagined, but that`s not the only reason.
  It just feels so damn good, and at the same time also so
  bitter sweet to be apart from someone you`d give your life
  and heart for. From these mixed emotions I often find the
  right mood to compose, and atleast to me my music represents
  the purest and most beautiful way to tell the world how you
  feel and what you wish to express. Music is also like a diary,
  a diary of emotions. I`ve often said that when I`m listening
  to some song of mine that it`s like reading an opened diary.
  I can tell you precisely how I felt at the time I was making
  that particular song, and it`s basicly really just an amazing
  thing how feelings turn into notes, melodies, and music.

  On "Serenity of Silence" I can very well tell you how much
  I can hear belonging for someone, it has an emotional charge
  like never before. It has the pure desire to be close, to be
  honest and good to your heart`s chosen one. And with`in all
  this I can hear that earth`s purest emotion desiring to reach
  out for the sky, and paint the feelings of devotion with tears
  from your eyes. The Intro part which I composed last for the
  song gives the whole song a really nice contrast. It is the
  only part I could describe as melancholic, though in a rather
  mellow mood/sense. This reflects the bitter sweet feeling love
  sometimes causes to a person. Every single thought, smile and
  whisper you imagine feels so rightful, so strong and good,
  so real and unique. Love and feeling of caring is the most
  genuine feeling I`ve felt in my entire life.

  I cannot imagine what could give me more
  pleasure than dedicating this song to you,
  Ann Mary H. with all my heart and soul.



    A bit of poetry.

  Here are some tiny little poems I`ve wrote recently.

  #1) How would you feel if love is right,
      right there to hold you tight,
      love that would never die,
      with someone who would love, not lie.

  #2) Out of the blue,
      you gave me a clue,
      but what could I find,
      when there`s no one your kind.

  #3) Deep down in my soul,
      I know I want more,
      it`s you who I adore,
      it`s you I`m ready for.

  #4) Life is an ongoing battle of survival,
      with you I`d love to see it all the way,
      forever love and cherish your soul,
      keep it warm and safe.



  Earthly Thoughts.

  From a dusty room to the world around I present you my latest
  effort, "SOS". Two pianos are playing the leading roles on my
  rather "barouqish" melodylines, as the most bizarre things are
  happening in the back. Basicly the song only has an ironic view
  of Serenity, or of Silence, not to mention something that sounds
  so peaceful as the whole title in full. I seem to have continued
  my weird/odd chose of vocal/speech samples again. Some of you
  might recognize Keanu Reeves`s voice, taken from the brilliant
  movie "The Matrix" and placed in the beginning of the intro part,
  and the porny moan and X-rated stuff I know atleast your parents
  wouldn`t like you to know anything about ;)   Btw, I downloaded
  the orgy sounds from some sample site, they aren`t sampled by me.

  Once again I had come up with more material I could use, almost
  enough for two individual/separate songs, but they would have
  sounded too much the same, so I decided to do one which wouldn`t
  sound repetive, atleast what comes to the melody lines. I might
  aswell reveal that several songs you`ve heard from me in the past
  (for example "Out of The Blue") had plenty of stuff which weren`t
  used in the song, patterns and melodies which were quite far away
  from the theme/mood of which the songs mostly were about. In the
  future you might very well hear familiar sounding samples used in
  a different way in a different enviroment and mood. These extra
  patterns that I didn`t use in the songs were always removed from
  the public (8bit) versions. I could name one of my most preferred
  tracks, One of a Kind, as a promising canditate to be followed
  by a sequal, a second part. No promises given though.



  About Versions.

  This is the 8bit public version. There is also a version made
  specially for the 2nd issue of Legend diskmagazine. The version
  that comes with the Legend diskmagazine`s 2nd issue has reduced
  active channels usage, so that the magazine would run on a slow
  computer nicely. Also the version is looped, it plays over and
  over again (continuously). Besides these, there are no other
  changes made compared to this public release. In any case,
  this is the best version released along the MP3 release.



  Theory.

  I heard a good saying, "The more theory, the less creativity."
  I believe in this, and in my case it could very well also be
  true. Naturally I wouldn`t say the same if were a master of
  musical theory, but sometimes you have to justify some things
  to yourself even if you weren`t 100% right. I cannot blaim
  myself and feel worthless if I don`t know everything about
  everything, but it`s just the way perfectionism affects me.
  You have shown me that you like the music even as I cannot
  carry out an intelligent conversation of musical theory, so
  why should I feel like I`m beneath everyone when none of you
  think so of me. I guess this way of feeling comes when you
  combine low self esteem, and the special mixture of slavic
  and finnish blood that runs in my veins ;)
