New ambient/chill groove: Elephant Gathering

I’ve started composing in a new genre of ambient dance tracks.� Here is a preview sample of the first fourth of the whole track.� When I finish it, I will release it for sale as a download.

This is my second project called “Elephant Gathering” (the first was “You Are Loved,” still due to be fully released).

This track could be used for many different applications.� I’d like to know your thoughts.� Is this something you would add to your iTunes collection for background music?� Or do you feel called to add your own sound to the mix?� What influences do you hear in this piece? Leave your comment here.

If you would like to be able to download this sample MP3 of “Elephant Gathering,” you may do so by joining my email list or if you are already on my list, simply wait for the next email or leave me a comment here.

Blessings of harmony,

Catherine

New audio sample: Right Here Now v2.0

Michael Logue and I have put in some more hours on Right Here Now, the track we are submitting at the end of this month for the Lilith Fair Contest on OurStage.com. Give this new version of Right Here Now a listen and let us know your thoughts here on my blog. Last time we posted a sample, we got some great, practical feedback from Barry Friedman (shorten the intro.) and Julie Maria Madrona (less reverb on the vocals). Thanks for listening and sharing the production process with us! Here is the new sample of Right Here Now (version 2):
