---Be Sure to check out my album "N" coming out in the next few months!---

Best listened to with lights off, headphones on, and eyes closed.

This is my most complicated song yet. It is an extremely emotional song and should be played with the best headphones you can get, lights off, eyes closed, and mind open. I started this track on an airplane flying over New Mexico heading towards Arkansas. I recorded some things going on and decided to add some fancy effects to them. After that, I sat down in my bed and began recording until 3:40AM. I wanted this track to be complex rather than the usual drone that I do. It has a lot of recordings of sounds, pads, and weird things that will really space you out. As always, I created it in Garageband. It really is an amazing program when you know how to use it without touching the pre-set loop library.

I put a lot of work into it, as well as a lot of heart. I hope you enjoy listening to the depths of my mind :)

Reviews always welcomed and responded.

224KBS - Thanks NG for the upload limit increase.

P.S. In case you are wondering, I am about to make an album with a lot of ambient music like this on it. I am working with an artist currently on the artwork. The album is basically suppose to take you on a trip inside your on mind, revealing your subconscious thoughts and feelings using buddhist meditation techniques through ambient music. It will be about 50 minutes long. Thanks NG for all the support you guys have given me over the past few years. It means a lot. For those of you who read my comments, heres a little gift for you: this song, in its literal sense, is suppose to be the recording of a dying man, or you dying. "Eclipse" is your eyes shutting, covering everything as if it were an eclipse. Also, if you notice, on some computers the time on the audio player glitches to "6:51", which is when the breathing starts, then goes to the actual time of 7 minutes. How did I do that you ask? No idea.

TECHNICAL INFO AND STUFF

Created In Garageband with various VSTs and Plugins including Ambience and Kore Player.

SFXs created by recording my finger popping in and out of a bottle, breathing, typing on the keyboard, and various things going on inside of an airplane flying over New Mexico.

Everything played on my QWERTY keyboard.

Perfect ambiance

Man, this is The Ambient music... Droning sequences of slow fading pads and an almost static wall of misty soundscapes. 7 minutes aren't enough to describe its beauty. Amazing stuff, isn't it?

Now, my interpretation. XD
Imagine the brief instants of a solar eclipse: everything gets darker and darker, as sunlight fades... Time stops, every living being becomes frozen, like statues of a once prosper world. Then, it is all up to you... you are the mastermind, or rather, the mind-controled puppet. Master your darkness, your eclipsing self... Live, as the sun shines deep into outer space.

Welcome to Drone Ambient territory. =D

That sounds like a cool game atmosphere, like a post apocalyptic world frozen in ice all because of a massive eclipse.

Nick does it agian!

Wow simply stunning. As I listened to this I started to feel very relaxed. Almost as if I could just feel the pressures of the day just lifting away. I could only relate the expereince to floating in perfectly still water. At the three minute mark when those rain drop sounds came in I actually felt my palms tingle. Not that this wasen't already a home run but the rythmatic breathing batted this one right out of the park.
As stated its very important to listen to this, with headphones. The best effect will come as this music surrounds you and wraps you up in it.

Actually, those dripping noises were me typing on the keyboard! :D

It is really amazing what sort of contradicting sounds you will get from such chaotic ones. This song was entirely composed by mixing together the sounds from the inside of an airplane I was on, with some additional pads :)

Wonderful

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this song. It's been added to my favorites since I first heard it. The pads sounds nice. I like the slightly detuned pad. The different ideas flow fairly nicely into each other as well. My favorite part being around 1:10.

It's nice that you tell us every little detail of how you created the piece, but sometimes I think it's nice to leave that stuff out and really let people use their imagination and explore the song. "Flying Over New Mexico" would be a cool title.


FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

Haha, yeah I leave in the details in the comments for those who want to know how I make everything. I am also really proud that I managed to create a song based off of such strange sounds, so I went ahead and put it in there. Flying Over New Mexico was somewhat related to my original title, but I thought that it was a BIT to cliche... then again, Into the Eclipse is as well lol. Man I suck at choosing sound titles. At least the current one actually related to the song :P

I appreciate your reviews Sine. You are actually one of my inspirations along with Kingbastard.

MEOW

"I hear NG raping quality."

Some of the pads seem to float for a little too long at times in certain frequencies, I don't notice anything sounding bad, nice, soft, and slow, although a few are "too" slow, there's a mystical balance between heavy and soft, slowly pulsating, at times it seems to be almost too much but then it backs down again, there's a few things here and there to reward replayability, almost hiddenesque effects deep in the sound, The effect that comes in at 4:12 is a little harsh, a little crackley, my ears didn't take this too well with the atmosphere which is being presented (but the bottle popping sure is, nicely done), At 5:00 it shifts into what seems to be a darker side, I'm having a little bit of trouble identifying what it is, but nonetheless, for now, it works, It all comes back again and peaceful, blissful, whatever you wish to use, when I first heard the little synth at 6:30, I didn't think it would fit, but then it does if you just let it wrap around you, the breathing sound is a little strange, I would imagine slower, softer breaths to be more fitting.

And then the end, everything seems to blow up all the sudden, there was still momentum, still a strong atmosphere to work with, and it's gone, I don't understand the sudden loss of the breathing, it was only there for a short amount of time, then it stops, and it all comes crashing down, the atmosphere, the trance, the ephereal feel of an aura of frequencies, gone.


FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

I personally think that the "slow" is perfect. I don't think that anything in this song is to slow, in fact notes don't drag on for more than a few seconds. There is a lot changing in this song in the background and in the foreground to create a constant, slow movement of sound. The ending is suppose to end like that, because it just gives this feeling of death, in my opinion. Every euphoric feeling should vanish at the end, but leave behind a trace in your brain that will keep you thinking about what the song really does mean.

Basically, you don't like the song because of how the sounds are being presented, and it all confused you. The frequencies are fine, in my opinion, because they offer a nice, constant feel to the song. Thanks for the review. :)

The light slowly fades away..

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (silence) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The Voices: The compositon, in which was bridged together by genuine fields, has been allocated intellectually, through the fields of essence. Somber shadows retreating cohesively, through a still transition in which time is still. Memories, slipping away through reality's remaining thresholds from your exoskeleton, soon to subside quietly, in the whispers, and mourning of our earthly cries.

Slowly.. time..will..cradle..you..until..''the y''..let..go.. then.. there..will..be.. .. . . . .
(More overly dramatic dots) . . . . . .. . .. .. ... .. .. . . . . . . (I might be Morse code) - -

This was thoroughly enjoyable, I could relate this to this very well. It definately makes you see as you wanted it to protray. Very talented. Keep up the droning, because we as listeners do more than just droning.. When we hear familiar whispers of our inner mind's structures created by mere sound. 5/5 10/10

Exactly haha. The listeners interpertation of the song can be vast and endless. Personally, I think ambient is a genre that can fully express ones inner mind through meditational energies, as you have explained in this review. It is the best way that I can create a piece of "art" and have people "see" it as if it were a painting of sounds piecing together images in the listeners mind.
