Take a rest in the night after climbing the highest mountain, watch the distant oceans and continents you still have to cross


First off, I made the rhodes' note progression you hear in the beginning and end of the song quite a while ago. I saved those four bars in case I could use it for another project- and 3 weeks ago, I could continue it. Finally had the inspiration to continue those four bars- and this song is what grew onto it. It was a pretty heavy project file (15 instrument channels, 35+ fx devices), so mixing it was a hell. Made with Reason and Logic rewired. 3 weeks spent on this.


So this songs has some interesting main instruments: Deep rhodes, powerful, huge drums, weeping lead, soaring flute, ethereal choir, subtle bass and a very emotional plucky synth.

Kicks off around 0:27. Sounds best when played loudly.

Dreamily Satired...

Have flipped through your stuff and my oh my is it impressive man:) The clarity you present with such emotional and yet subtle melodies is just daunting.

Anyway, I love how this piece works its way slowly into the main portion of the song and its mellow nature is extremely relaxing and soothing to the ears. The melody is tempting and slightly magical and mysterious^_^ allows the listener to imagine artistic images, which is wonderful.

Your ambient work is simply the best Newgrounds possesses and I hope you continue to contribute to us, for your material keeps some of us going man.

Anything short of a 10 would be robbing you.

I have the feeling that I'm being very very late with my response.

It wasn't the ebst of your work, but it was very nice. Very calm, some of it sounded too much computer generated rather then actual music, oh well. The thing that bugged me a little is the fact that it sounds like it loops over and over. But, all in all, very calm, soothing, anything else that means to be relatively calm. Love your work.

Ya all is computer "generated" (haha I really don't like the word generated in that context- "made on a computer" makes it seem at least a little bit creative :P) - but it's still actual music! It's not like... false music or something :(

Thanks for the review!!

Ah, there's just so much things happening in this 4 minute piece. I love the subtle pace it has.

Just epic, I'll say.

very nice

I love the song there is so much awsome shit i havent checked out at the top of the ambient list.

def a dl from me

this song actually reminds me of tales of phantasia a little bit somehow im not sure why though. Maybe it's the choir in the background.

check out some of my shit if you want if frozen ocean(my song) is still close to the top of the list...

Thanks for the review man! I'll have your stuff checked out, but I might take a while (read my response to the previous review)

I just got into ambient the last time, so I was wandered what it is here.
First of all, the drums. They were great since they weren't overpowered, nor too soft.
Second the melody. The synth. It sounds like a mix of a techno and a church. Original, but effective.
The choir felt good, no complaints about that.



check out my stuff, bla bla, you know it.

Buoy responds:

Thanks a lot for the review man!

I'll get to reviewing you sometime hopefully soon, but my current internet connection is in no way fast enough to load a song! So you've gotta be patient, sorry :)
