I am the composer of this piece.

The idea was to compose something that would help _me_ sleep. This was supposed to be a strictly personal piece. Unimusa to english translates as sleep music.

Musical stuff. As I said, I wanted this to make me just fall asleep, no intricate melodies to keep me awake, and suddenly there's the guitar background.. Not to mention the awful crashes in the most horrible places, which I have since revised and removed.

Tracking stuff. Technically I spent quite a lot of time on this. 12 channels I believe, and every one of those needed to be volume controlled carefully. I restrained my love for solo guitar and just amped up the strings. Also, back then these files had to be small, anything over 500k was huge, so no high quality samples.

Overall, I'm fairly happy with this piece. At least it made me look hard at the limitations of a tracker compared to strict sheet music, as heard at 2.25.

This is a very well created, mellow piece of soft rock, held together by its sweeping strings and wailing lead guitar, both of which are well executed in this piece. The different parts ebb and flow over one another, each taking a lead for a while then fading into the background to support the rest of the music. The percussion is just right for this piece of music, with a subtle sound; it's almost possible to overlook the percussion altogether here, and that's probably for what the artist was aiming. Perhaps a greater climax could have been created about three quarters of the way through the song; the music stays very subdued throughout, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, but a little more passion thrown in may have helped. Overall, an excellent piece of music anyway. Technically, this song is very good also. The song blends well, as a piece in this genre should do; the sample volumes are tweaked nicely. The effect usage on the lead guitar is well done, with good use of vibrato and volume effects to create a realistic sound. One drawback to the technical side of things is the complete lack of panning and stereo effects in the song. A good surround effect could have been created to make a fuller, more robust sound. As it is, the song is still good, but it's disappointing to see such an area neglected.
