Another track from my old ambient album. This is the last straight ambient song on it before the whole thing descends into hell, which you can hear as the textures grow darker at the end.

This was always my favourite from the album. It's very repetitive and minimalist to serve the theme of stewing in your own depression until it breaks you. Despite that, there's actually a lot of subtle build in the track as new layers are introduced and the harmonic structure becomes more sinister.

It's not perfect and there are things I would change, particularly near the start, but this is still one of my favourite of my own pieces.

This track sounds very soothing, but also mournful. The repetition suits the feeling and intention of the song. The layering of instruments is effective. My only critique is that it might benefit from wider panning. Great job!

This is a good ambient track. It kind of has a LIMBO feel to it, and even more with it's descending atmosphere into hell. I guess I could call this type of ambient music "sweet to sour" or something XD Nice work!
