Hey everyone, this track is a long one! It's pretty much the audio form of a short indie film. I would recommend downloading this track and listening to it on an mp3 player while walking around, at night if safe, for the beat experience. I completely understand that there will be people who do not wish to listen to a 16 minute ambient song, but rest assured THIS IS NOT REPETETIVE DRONE lol. It is a vivid soundscape, progressing into different tones and themes. Be patient, listen before bed, open your mind a bit, and try something different. ;)

I made this track to represent my thoughts while depressed. I was feeling almost "insane" for a while, driving for hours on end to try and calm my thoughts and place everything together. I would go for walks at night in the woods, watching trees pass by me. I would sit in my dorm and just stare at the ceiling. I couldn't possibly describe what emotions I felt during this depression, but after all of it was over I decided to try and convert it into music. I do this with most of my ambient tracks, and after five months of work I am finally done with this 16 minute opening to my upcoming progressive ambient album, "N".

I spent the majority of the five months it took to write this track piecing together my thoughts into what I thought would best express them. I don't expect everyone to like this track of course, because it is very experimental. I would absolutley, positivley, love to hear feedback on this track. If any imagery comes to mind, then please don't hold them back. By all means, feel free to expand your mind and, when ready, put on your headphones, open up a window, sit down, relax, go for a walk, or do whatever you feel will help you best engulf yourself in this track.

What this track actually "means" or "represents" is all up to you, the listener. It can be a relaxing track to help open up your mind, a track to help recover lost memories, background noise for a game, an interesting listen to break from "normal" music, or just a complete pile of crap because I know not everyone enjoys ambient, heh.

Anyway, I always enjoy expressing myself through this sort of music and hope you enjoy it. I worked pretty hard on it, and am glad to have finally finished it. Enjoy! By the way, for those of you out there who support my music... thank you, thank you, and thank you. Knowing that people enjoy what I make really gives me this great feeling inside. The fact that people understand it is even more incredible. Love you guys

Very interesting. Nice use of sounds!

The song definitely creates an interesting atmosphere, with plenty of unique, monotonous sounds and noises. The image I get in my head is standing on a white balcony, on a huge world so far outside of the boundaries of space... where time is somehow 15 years late. On that balcony, I watch an image of myself from behind. The image stands on a white balcony at the Blue Hour, staring down an endless path, lined by endless gardens. The balcony, the path, and the gardens are the only things on this flattened world that are actually there. The image of myself is only an apparition of where I stood 1 long year ago... on that balcony. Next year, I'll see an appartion of where I currently stand. The wind constantly blows and howls like a tornado, yet there's not a storm in sight. The temperature feels cold, and has the same sensation of being frostbitten... yet the feeling is almost cozy. Despite the stagnancy of this world, I feel like I've landed on the world where all of mankind's imagination gathers. I feel like, on this world, I can find anything I want to. I feel like I can find things from the past that no longer exist. I feel like I can go back in time and observe how mankind progressed in that age. I feel like I haven't unlocked the world's potential, no matter how empty it seems.

I feel timeless.

Anyway, I enjoyed the song! I like the feel of it, and I had a lot of fun creating the images in my head along with the song. Great work, buddy. :D Can't wait for your new album!

Awesome imagery man! The whole "timeless" theme is something that seems to be present in many of my tracks, simply because the feeling of isolation seems to feel "dark" and "endless" to where everything seems "unkown" and "forever", making time non-exsistant. Trippy stuff haha ;)

quite relaxing

it has kind of a nostalgic feel to it

it also has a scary movie bgm type of feel

something you would expect to hear out of resident evil you know what im saying??

this is a true ambient too so it goes well with home work and studying and such

it did seem to drag a little in the middle but its ambient so it really doesnt matter

my favorite part is from 1:00 to 7:52 but after that is where it just kinda sits to much for me

i guess its because its the middle of the song and i expect it to do a little more

Ambient music can seem to drag on at points, and I tried my best to switch up moods and including small patterns. Ambient is the sort of track you should prepare yourself for, allowing your mind to open fairly well to experience music in a different way. And hey, rate honestly lol. If you don't like it after 7:52, then rate it lower then 10 :P As I said in the authors comments, I don't expect everyone to like this UBER SERIOUS CORNY TRACK lol.

sounds like a space game song!

from 00:50 to 3:00 it's pretty depressing, but I liked it a lot, perfect ambiance for a horror sci-fi in space. Good job and keep at it!

Yeah, this does give off a pretty depressing feel, but treat it as a break from your normal feelings rather than a "bad" feeling. It can also be described as "euphoria" rather. I think it would be awesome for a sci-fisih film :D

How to put this into words...

Honestly, I could feel most if not all of the emotions put into this very enlightening track. I'm glad to have put the time in to listen to this. I really loved the progression of the song, the shifts actually messed with my head for a bit xD But in all seriousness, I did take your advice on the walk and like I said before, I was enlightened...Inspired a bit. The song brought back lots of emotions I haven't felt in awhile and lots of memories. It was definitely an experience. I haven't heard music like this in awhile, so it was pretty refreshing to go back into it, for that longass walk I had with this on REPEAT :D I got to give you props on this one. Although this may not be the best music review out there, I hope it helps. I honestly can't wait to hear more from you and your upcoming album! Thanks for putting this up!

Every single review always helps as long as it isn't just, "Woo this dog this Is good" lol. You went for a walk? AWESOME. If you go for a walk, it really helps you go into deep thought and truly let this track seep into your mind. It's actually considered a form of meitational excersise. You putting my 16 minute song on loop makes me feel nice :3 I'm very glad you were able to feel those awesome things. Thanks for your review!

Interesting

Needless to say it's spacey, droning, tempo-less and experimental, traits that are typical of what we call now "drone ambient".

The three-minutes intro sounded pretty intriguing and "metallic", in a way that makes you feel heavy in a very subtle and dark way. Something I would expect to find in a Steve Roach, Lustmord or early Tangerine Dream album.

The theme that follows soon after brings more dynamics to the track and definitely worth a listen, with its synthy and crisp electronics. Three-chords arpeggios with a minimalist approach and basic EQ, not surprising but not failing either.

Windy pads take their vengeance in the third and final theme, bringing a feeling of slight emptiness, isolation and desolation. So much images in this one, it really adapts as a soundtrack for an indie abstract film, probably dealing with depression and solitude too, or even post-apocalyptic futuristic scenarios. The background sound effects really bring life to this theme, and it's refreshing to hear something different from the bottom-heavy sounds used in this.

It's indeed a nicely structured dark journey to the realms of deep psychology, and the fact that you personally went through that makes the whole piece a little more "genuine". Many would look at this and say it's either "spam" or non-music. It's Ambient, people. Background music at its finest. This perfectly fits into the wide commercially labelled "Ambient" category, as it's a deep collage of sounds, delicately manipulated to bring vivid abstract imagery into your minds.

In conclusion, I wouldn't call this a "masterpiece" (hence the droning and monotonous nature), but it's indeed an excellent Ambient track full of layers and atmospheres, and as you even said, worth for a walk in a serene place away from frantic everyday routine.

Wow, now that's a detailed review! Even though we call this sort of sound, "drone ambient", it is a rare genre that is simply not heard in todays culture, and therefore is known as "experimental". Comparing this to the famous ambient producer, Steve Roach, makes me feel warm in the heart. I only just recently discovered him when SineRider compared my track, "Breathe With Me" with Steve Roach's style. I checked him out and instantly fell in love.

Some might suggest my inspiration comes from various ambient drone producers, but in reality my inspiration comes from what i see in the world around me. Simply put, my music comes from my perspective. I think that music should replicate what's deep inside our minds, spontaneously erupting our emotions in a waterfall of noises knows as a "vivid soundscape". I love crafting together my emotions, writing them down in electronic form and converting them into music.

The windy pads you described are actually sound effects I recorded with my MacBook Pro. What better way to describe my surroundings then by recording them. I use various sounds that I hear every day to compose some of my music, in order to accurately describe my feelings during certain times.

And you are certainly right about this being "genuine", as I took everything in this track to heart. Thanks again for your lovely review and im glad you enjoyed it! :)
