Somewhere Somehow Sometime And Why Now Track List:

Tone:
Solace peace calm and tranquility were the things I felt while listening to “Tone” the first track in the album “Somewhere Somehow Sometimes And Why Now” by Paul Jorgensen This song welcomed me into the domain of this album in the best way possible with its gentle and paradisiacal sound design This song opens up with what sounded like the fitting sound for an ominous scene in a movie it was a sustained astral sound fused together with deep reverberating bass sound echoing through the walls and not long I could hear trumpet-like sound giving off a mysterious yet enchanting melody The composition had sounds that acted like effects playing in the grand scheme of the song, with light high-pitched unique sounds As the song progressed it grew in intensity but in a calm and solemn way and I could literally feel the weight of the song on me.
Getting close to the 1:40 timestamp the sound scope began to metamorphose into newer dimensions I could hear what felt like synthesized movements of heavily strung strings within the shadows of the composition and then a deep bass sound appeared at the 1:41 timestamp ushering the composition into this new dimension Moving deeper into the realm of this song I began to hear finely orchestrated synth sounds and unique sound designs Not just that the dynamic and mysterious sounds of the trumpet made their way back into the mix intensifying and making the entire scheme grander At some point I could hear the sweet chirping sounds of birds adding elegance and a natural feel to the paradisical soundscape What makes this track utterly special and unique is the consistency and flow of the instruments sounds and effects The combination of the unique trumpet sounds and light touch of the violin together with unique sound effects and astral piano notes created a perfect ending for the journey and showed the creativity and mastery of sound engineering by Paul Jorgensen.

Hallowed Ground:
It’s not everyday you hear an instrumentation that’s as unique as “Hallowed Ground” In the album “Somewhere Somehow Sometime And Why Now” by Paul Jorgensen “Hallowed Ground” emerged as an unconventional and usual piece taking the seventh position in the album track list This masterpiece stands out due to its unconventionality and dynamism The sounds and orchestration are unexpected and the flow of the rhythm and melody is unpredictable but yet it still delivers extreme perfection in sound manipulation and engineering “Hallowed Ground” starts off with exclusive sound designs that at the beginning gave off a feeling like a ringtone It was a combination of deep and sustained piano sounds with a light and bright synth-like sound standing firm on top of an enthralling ethereal sound base
The track continued with a movement of sound that felt like it echoed and centered in my head As the song progresses the reverberation of sustained bass sound moves across the sound while the opening sounds maintain their presence with added depth and rare effects of sonic exploration At intervals sustained celestial melodies move across the composition like a passerby and at the 1:03 timestamp I hear thick and resounding piano sounds hitting the song’s wall in a spellbinding way and then an intense deep bass sound that shakes the entire composition comes into the mix effortlessly blending with the already existing celestial soundscape The entire rhythm melody and composition of this song are entirely matchless and unparalleled and can only be fully appreciated when you experience its indescribable sound maze for yourself.

Little Feet (On The Farm)”:
I’m wondering what kind of word I am to use to describe the tenth track “Little Feet (On the Farm)” in the album “Somewhere Somehow Sometimes And Why Now” by Paul Jorgensen This track is like a mixture of historic instrumentation giving off ancient vibes with modern-style orchestration Honestly explaining it is difficult It’s a song where the old and new coexist as one to form a perfect sonic entity Light but ear-gripping piano notes those were the sounds that started this work of art and not just that they were joined by a synthesized ring-like tone Not long after the real magic begins with the unique style of drumming Honestly what I felt was the drumming hitting like a hip-hop beat but like it was done in the 1800s it was unique and of a different style It felt like a group of ancient army members matching for war in this modern day and age This rare beat style was joined by the captivating sounds of the piano with bass sounds moving cautiously in the background and synth sounds quietly gracing the composition.
This extraordinary type of instrumentation continued with male vocals underneath the sounds moving like he was chanting getting ready for war and this held out up until the 1:00 timestamp From this point something distinctive happened first off it was the deep and rich sound of the bass and next thing I heard was the sound of a cock crowing and then the sound of a sheep bleeting The composition changed and I started hearing different sounds what it felt like was like sounds describing the evolution and passage of time I could hear both sounds of machine wiring electronic and robotic sounds gunshots and sounds that moved like they were from a movie It was all so mind-blowing that I was lost in it and at the 1:36 timestamp the song reverted back to its original form.
From the 2:06 timestamp I started hearing unique sound effects again this time they felt like they were moving from the left part to the right part of my ear Before even recovering from this amazing sound design I began to hear finely crafted and sophisticated percussion-style sounds that were so rare Overall the composition is too awesome to behold or describe What makes this track even more special is the ability of Paul Jorgensen to creatively blend and fuse every little element and detail of this track together The way he masterfully created every piece and made them into one needs to be studied as a course The movements of the sound were unparalleled and unrivaled and the patterns were simply stunning.

April Showers:
The closing track “April Showers” in the album “Somewhere Somehow Sometimes And Why Now” by Paul Jorgensen is on a whole different plane it’s on a completely different level and I understand why it ends the album This track focuses on the delicate and creative nature of sound design weaving together different kinds of intriguing and mind-bending effects to create one whole masterpiece This track doesn’t focus too much on instrumentation but on the power of creative designs The track slowly starts with sustained ominous sounds and a light low-toned percussion-like sound This ominous sound’s intensity began to rise momentarily and it was joined by reverberating bass sounds As the song progressed, different sorts and kinds of effects began to join in on the composition elevating the entire feel of the song At some point I could hear sounds that felt like high-pitched whailing I could hear the flow of the deep bass sounds and I could hear unique changes in the composition that I couldn’t begin to fathom or explain This track is simply too unique and dynamic to put into words living this track and deepening yourself in its wholeness is the way to go.
