Originally made in Reason only, but when I got Logic for Christmas, I rewired Logic and Reason, making it sound a goddamn lot better. It contains hell of a lot of rhythm (drums, tabla, shakers and some FM percussion), so I think I might've stretched the definition of ambient music quite a tiny little bit. But anyway, enjoy a 2-3 weeks work :)

Lol.. wow..

That was amazing.. and to your response to my buddy Chronamut, You jumped down, but when I got to the top, I was glad I brought Ski's :D

i must admit..

the song title usually gives a good enuff imagery of the song.. this one makes me think of climbing an ice-capped mountain far above a jungle on a tropical island.

I like the tribal percussion - its a nice touch. This song is pretty cool - its got good atmosphere. All I can think of is just climbing higher and higher and higher, occasionally looking down to the jungle below - and then.. reaching the top I guess.

Great job.

Almost all of your audio tells a story without any words. It's like the name that you pick and the song fit perfectly almost every time and that the song imprints the image into your head. I can almost see myself on a journey up a snowy mountain when listening to this song. It takes up to around 20 seconds to get started for some reason. Is there a reason for this? I wasn't sure at first if I couldn't hear anything or if there was something wrong with the song. When I looked at my volume bar nothing was being picked up so I assumed that there wasn't anything playing. Overall, a great song like almost all of your work. Keep up the good work.


this is one your top 10 in my fav songs that you made. it has the feeling that your actualy like climbing a mountain.

real nice song 9/10

SBB Climbs High, Can Go Higher

SBB's aptly-named 'Climbing a Snow Mountain' demonstrates both elegance and simplicity. Wind, ice, and the heavy tread of feet are all cleverly depicted, using synthesized steel drums, chimes, and bass. Its harmonious nature and lack of aggression makes it ideal wait music for more uptempo games. Layered percussion effects add a certain degree of complexity, though subtle crescendos among the different parts are missing, leaving an overall sense of direction absent.

Though imperfect, the track demonstrates a firm grasp of technical details and a certain sense of aesthetics. With 'Climbing a Snow Mountain,' SBB establishes himself as one to watch for future offerings as he hones his craft.
