Thought i share this song i wrote. It's a live recording so the sound quality is a bit low, because it's recorded with one mic only, but i hope it doesn't disturb too much. Song is called 'Ensilumi', which means first snow of winter in Finnish. It has a bit traditional Finnish music atmosphere, with violin and double bass played with bow. Other instruments are drums, guitar, piano and vocals (there's no lyrics, just a vocal melody). I play the guitar parts. Hope you like it! :)

Thanks Seppo Ilmarinen, i just heard it, and definitely like it :) - nice and calming...it would be great if this could be recorded properly through a studio, then I'm sure we can hear all the instruments better, with a richer sound.

A beautiful melody indeed, thank you Seppo Ilmarinen. It's nice and calming, as Mr.Cyan noted. I love ethnic music very much, yet I haven't been quite familiar with Finnish melodies. Now I know better, thanks to you! :thup:

Dear Seppo Ilmarinen thank you very much for sharing, it is beautiful!

Got me back to our good old times when was working on my first film that is a fairytale about giant and fairy and unconditional love to life as it is. This beautiful song just went through me ... enchanting

I hope, if you looking for that, that you can manage to get better recording as all the instruments and voice are so powerful ... played alive must be a truly delight.

thank you one more time :) :flowers: :clap:

Absolutely Seppo Ilmarinen, this is beautiful (especially after having a busy day of running around getting things done), its quite enchanting. It reminds me of when I took a trip up to Scotland - as it does have a kind of Highland vibe to it.

Thanks for the comments and nice to hear you enjoyed listening the song. We were at the studio some months ago recording this song and few others i've written. They should be finished soon, so there's higher quality version of this song available later.

Here's a new version of the song we've recorded in studio with new lyrics i've written. It's not fully mixed but quite close to ready. There's also two other songs i've written in the soundcloud page, and the lyrics in all of them are inspired by Cass forum, so perhaps peeps here might enjoy them. This song is now called 'The Alchemists'.

Here's the lyrics:
VERSE 1
This long road ain’t travelled just one way
Said shepherd for a life to a king for a day
What you’ve found glitters but ain’t gold
Careful now or it’ s your soul that’s being sold

Seek your grail from places unknown
There’s a million miles ahead
Love turns dust to castles, ash to burning flames

This long road ain’t travelled just one way
Smart dumb or wise fool - always price to pay

CHORUS:
We’re all like alchemists
Wandering through the mist
I heard the call
“It’s the reason you exist”

Snow falls on my feet
Somewhere we will meet
I heard the call
“Move on and don’t retreat”

I’ve found my way, live in me today

VERSE 2
Your past and future are made today
Grow where you’re planted, not how they say
Sometimes you need to travel the world around
To uncover what you’ve already found

Seek your grail for places unseen
There’s a million miles ahead
Love turns dust to castles, ash to burning flames

Your past and future are made today
Learn and suffer and the pride will soon decay

VERSE 3

In howling wind the walls of tower shake
The hour’s getting late to choose your fate

CHORUS:
We’re all like alchemists
Wandering through the mist
I heard the call
“It’s the reason you exist”

Snow falls on my feet
Somewhere we will meet
I heard the call
“Move on and don’t retreat”

I’ve found my way, live in me today
