One of a kind by Acumen ____ "Snowflake" Like snowflake on the sky, I came into your mind, I looked towards your eyes and said your heart is mine, you took a step behind and told me I`m your kind, right then I started smiling and looked upon my darling. - Milan ____ Emotions, these earthly seeds of heavenly paradise that you`re spelled upon every once and a while .. Devotions, like an ocean full of whales swimming among those drops of Eden, humming to one another with the justified knowing of belonging on the face of the earth that mankind no longer deserves to have .. ____ The story? Where did this song really got it`s inspiration and the melancholy, it`s carrying force? .. It`s a story of a boy and a girl, the rest you might already know.. I am sure we`d all like to cherish our loved ones and to think they`re something special between heaven and earth, something precious, and actually that`s quite true since we`re all different, yet at the same time all related. Every single person whom you get acquinted with during you`re life, you develope feelings, certain thoughts about this person. There was one feeling that held a thought with`in which I hadn`t had for a long time. I almost had closed my eyes for seeking it`s existance, and nearly completely had forgotten how it felt like .. She basicly turned me upside down, and reminded me that not all live is cold, unharsh, and full of hatred, dishonesty and repulsive acts of human. She reminded me how wonderful and precious life actually is, and how we all take it for granted, when infact no one owes us that blessing. ____ .v.i.s.i.o.n.s. Why is it that we have the urge to create destruction, deceives and lies with`in this garden of Eden which some of refer as planet earth? .. Do we REALLY need guns, wars, victims, casualties and misery to understand how vulnerable mother nature is, and how significant we actually are. My answer at the time would be "yes". We`re spending more money in finding out more efficient ways to kill entire nations than in solving the problems that are slowly, but surely getting out of hands. In other words, we`re all in this together, shame on all of us! There`s one thing I`m glad about, and that is that we won`t be vanishing without paying the price to all of this. The end is near, and it won`t be pretty. We`re all part of this chain which in the end leads to slow, but sure suicide of mankind, suicide none of us really wanted. ____ .i.n.f.l.u.e.n.c.e.s. Here`s some music that I feel obligated to mention as like others, I also "drain" influences from the world surrounding me, and from the music I love listening to. First of all, Warder`s "Thanatos Minor" is something I didn`t instantly fall in love with, but after some period of time I got the hang of it, and experienced the airy, yet still "pressurized" enviroment. Once again I must thank Warder (the reincarnation of Mozart?) for these terrific samples he had done. Who knows if I`d have ever composed this song without his inspiring pro-samples. Awesome`s "For a New World" is truly beautiful too, much more like my song than Warder`s, and maybe this silently taught me to control the flow of emotions, and to express them. A wonderful pop ballad! Nitzer`s "The Adventure" is quite similar to the mood and style Awesome`s song has, but this has more of the same elements as mine does. Like in mine, the piano plays an important role, and I could also almost swear I can hear a story been told with every note being played like it would be a word whispered in the air. Again, one song you must hear! Nightwish`s "Sleeping Sun". This is a commercial finnish band, so you won`t find this at any scene related site. Actually I have never liked heavy music, but this wonderful (not-se-heavy) ballad made an instant affection on me, exspecially the female singer`s beautiful "opera" type of singing). ____ .closing words & thoughts. It felt damn good to compose again to tell you the truth. I`d compare this experience to holding your breath for a minute and then slowly inhaling again. It sure does feel good, doesn`t it? .. This was like a new discovery for me with an old subject of interest. I think I`ve simply come to realize that the key factor in making music is that there`s no time, only space .. Funny thing, I kept whistling my own song for the first time in my life, and infact, I actually didn`t remember nor realize that it was my own song I kept on repeating .. Another funny thing is how many of you have asked me about my knowledge of music theory, and the simple fact that I don`t have much knowledge of theory at all. I know I`m not alone with this matter, since there are many people just like me, composing music and that are confronted with the same type of questions and amazements. I`d like to learn more about theory, but at the same time I can`t help to think that it might take away something "untained" and "pure" with my work among music, in it`s style and unique way of presenting it. Well, in any case, music theory is an interesting field which I am coming more aware of day by day .. ____ .t.h.e. .e.n.d. This is all for now, but before I finish, let me light a candle of hope to enlighten your day. As you`re listening to the end of my song, you can hear that it`s reaching out for a better tomorrow as the melody changes from melancholic to one that carries more hope and belief inside .. ____ Email>> acumen_kolubmus.fi Homepage>> www.kolumbus.fi/acumen Snailmail>> Milan Kolarovic Hollontie 59 35320 Hirsila Finland (c) Milan Kolarovic (aka Acumen) 2nd of October 1999 ___________________________________________________________________________

I`ve used his drum samples that Warder had taken into his song called "Thanatos Minor". #Nitzer. Three samples have been taken from his masterpiece, "The Adventure". Absolutely a great piece of music! #Tourach. I`ve taken one sample from one of his unfinished songs. IF U use any of these samples, please remem- ber to contribute the rightfull owners for them.
