I’d been playing around with this track for a while and had taken it about as far as I thought I could when I remembered that Chris Philpotts a.k.a Kibeja had, some time ago, offered to play oboe or horn on something for me. I figured this would be perfect for collaboration and Chris kindly accepted the challenge.

Chris came up with not only oboe, but also ocarina, whistle and alto recorder parts all of which combine to take Pacific to a whole new level. Working with Chris was heaps of fun and I believe together, we have crafted a wonderful atmosphere.

Come with us and sail on a calm blue ocean…

Thanks to: Chris Philpotts for his time and effort.

I keep applauding these refills but I keep using them so feel they deserve the praise.
