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

Food for Imagination!

I listened to this track with closed eyes trying to imagine the emotions that you had while making this.
What came to mind when I listened was abstract thoughts of fear, and haunted places, echoing tunnels with unfriendly things lurking inside. Then after a change in the music I sensed something like an emotion of fleeing and searching, as if I were trying to find something before something found me. I saw visions of speeding on highways and fleeing some abstract, shapeless thing while looking for something that refused to be found. Around the end of the music, the beat slowed down and then there was the sense of being lost, within a clouded maze of a city looking for a way out, wondering in a strange place unknown yet familiar, going unnoticed by the strange things that would pass by. Yet the shapeless thing was still there, always behind a corner that was just passed, always just out of sight. The music and visions ended like the first chapter of a story, where something has just happened but the consequences of the action are yet to be known.

This was by far one of the most interesting pieces of music I've ever listened to.
Wonderful job!

I havent told anyone this yet, but the short story I am writing for the album actually has to do with a man losing touch with reality, replacing everything with an endless, iron city where he looks for something that cant be found. He searches for a special something... but he doesn't know what that "something" is and doesn't know if he will ever find it. He just aimlessly walks through this strange, forgiegn and seemingly endless land. The fact that you thought of so many similar things inspires me to continue on with the short story :)

This really brings out that iner mind and makes you think. I love the fact that it's long so I can kick back somewhere and just chill with a blank stare to think. When I listen to it, it opens a whole nother dimension where can just be, live, and think freely. No chaos or control.
Deffinatly one of my favorite "soothing/ free flow" songs

Yeah man. I want to be able to make tracks that will allow people to go into a sort of other state of mind where they can just freely flow. Thanks for the comments.

brain world ...

I do not know if it is due to the last typing week (for me) but I listened to a brain in a hard working. I could mix your ambient with my notes and both danced together in my mind. Many sensations were around my seat at the beginning also too much ideas flying at the end of the track. Time , sweat , maybe tears are impressed here.
Thanks to you Nick for compose songs for everyone , but most important , to express yourself at playing. I would like to share my brain too , in spite of the low audience I would have. So I think next time ... Well done.

Hopefully you will be able to express yourself through your writing as well! By the way, as a personal question, where are you from?

Awesome!

I'm not sure how many chances I'll get to listen to this on the go but thank you for sending me a link to this :)

Hopefully you will find the time to hear this in a different atmosphere, such as walking in the nighttime or at least sitting in your bed. It really does have a different effect on the track.

It does the mind good to hear this track. :)

"I can see a wartorn city, but all is quite and the war has either moved on or ended. But as I walk through it, clutching a Lee-Enfield rifle, I take in the scale and extent of the destruction and look up at the gloomy sky that reflects the mood perfectly, with eerie wind to break the silence and pause for a while as I take a look from a high rooftop.

But after a few minutes I move on, and my spirit lifts slightly as I see that not everything is ruined, a beautiful old tavern has escaped major damage somehow.

But the reprieve from the desolation fades as I walk further on with my comrades in silence and memories flash through my mind.

There is more darkness ahead, with my mind in turmoil. But a small niggling thought assures me that the gloom will lift all in good time when the trial ends."

That's what went through my mind, but a second time I think of a serenely quiet desert with a night sky lit by the northern lights, and under it a group of tents and parked tanks and half-tracks.

The variation in ambience and length of the track makes it loop well, as you don't think "Ah, the track is about to loop" when it nears the end, which helps keep my mind calm and clear, especially when I'm writing things like this or drawing, where too many thoughts can distract me and break the mood and my concentration. I can quite seriously listen to this ambient loop for ages without tiring of it. :)

A solid ten for sure, I can't find any faults with this masterpiece. :)

I remember playing Metro 2033 and thinking to myself, "Man... ambient music would really sound awesome right about now" after I discovered the snow covered wasteland of futuristic Moscow, Russia. I think what you described here is pretty awesome. I could even see this fitting into the short story I am currently writing for the album. A tavern in the middle of a post apocalyptic, cold, barren wasteland, seemingly untouched by the war is absolutely fantastic.

Awesome imagery man. I'm glad you can loop this... thats great! Thanks. :)
