This is a demo. I plan on expanding it into 3 separate parts, each their own song that leads into the next. This was more of an experiment to see where I could take it. Let me know what you think! Any and all criticisms welcome! :)

I had not hear this one in a while, Chris. Still a very nice piece, and in my honest opinion, my favorite of yours :]

Very mellow -- just what I needed with temperatures here peaking near 90, today.

I am not a huge fan of synthesizer string sections, but other than that I think that it all sounds really good! Hopefully you will get to work with a symphony some day :]

Gabrielle gave feedback to Chris Hoffmeister for “Delusion's Illusion”:
Really pretty in the beginning and exciting then erie in the middle. I think the first part going into the second is a good transition since it slowly builds, but the second part has so much drama that going back into the first part towards the end maybe needs a more gradual transition to ease back into it, if that makes sense. If they will be three separate songs, though, they compliment each other well.

Thanks for the input! Yeah, I definitely want to add more voices to the overall mix but basically I want to extend the beginning, add some different instruments to the first build up so it's not so repetitive and I'm not too sure what to do with the middle as of yet. I was kind of toying with the idea of keeping it so dramatic with a sudden ending, have that fade out and into the beginning melody but i'll mess around with your idea, see if I can come up with anything good.

oh yeah, I really liked the voices. Forgot to mention that.

Beautiful little piece. Quite gentle and nice in the first part.

Almost disturbing in the second part, and then a very energetic finale. I love it. Keep going with this, I'm eager to see where it will go!

What did you use to make the strings, they sound good, especially for midi.

Thanks for writing this and sharing it as well,

Thanks! I'm using a Yamaha P95 keyboard but I'm also recording through Pro Tools.
