And now for something completely different...

I've taken inspiration from the album Background Music for Foreground People, and I've decided to make a song that is meant to be heard while doing other things. Basically, it is meant to be played at moderate to low volumes and payed attention to subconsciously.

However, if you have the time, you're more than welcome to put this "background" music into the "foreground." I think it'd be great for a short, 8-minute meditation session or something. Let me know what you think!

Hotel rooms have always fascinated me for one reason or another. The song is a compact recreation of a night in a hotel room (or how I view it anyway). A little scary, a little comforting, and very different.

Had to make the sample rate 128 kbit to fit, but I think it sounds pretty good. I'll probably release it in better quality elsewhere, though.


Wow! This would fit perfect into a point and click mystery game. If I only had discovered this piece earlier...


Doesn't make me think of hotel rooms at all, but it's a really nice ambient song, it kinda takes you through a subconscious journey of a kind...

It seems to change throughout the song, so even though it sounds similar a lot, I'm not getting tired of it. Especially since I'm doing something else while listening.

A really nice song to have playing while chatting or reading, drawing or fiddling with the computer. :)

Gillenium responds:

It truly is background music. Plus, I've been in some pretty scary hotels... The nice hotels probably won't connect to this one.

A perfect track for zoning out.

Topic, because when I hear this track, I could probably zone out while listening to this set to repeat for quite some time. Or, I could do all the stuff the previous reviewer said. Great track! On an unrelated note, I also feel this track would go perfect in a foreign or horror movie taking place in a distant place, for from civilization, like a remote cavern.

Gillenium responds:

Yeah, this one is pretty devoid of a human element. I like the alien feel of it, though. Thanks for the review!

Perfect for....

This is perfect for doing anything. drawing, reading, meditating, sleeping, even playing fast paced FPS to. Try it, its interesting. I think it would be best for swimming slowly. Or floating.

Gillenium responds:

That's the idea! :D

I think the best setting for this song would be for it to be played in a very lonely setting, like if you're in a pool by yourself at night. Gives me shivers just thinking about it.

I might have to play this during Half-Life 2 sometime.. thanks for the review!

Ghost Lady

This is a great track, it sounds more along the lines of a ghost singing. Kind of an echoeing down a hall. Alittle bit of creepy recurring beeps like a phone is going off maybe. I dont know. But I like it so thats what I have to say.

Gillenium responds:

Thanks! It was hard to make something that was scary, but also kind of comforting at the same time. I have to thank the main synth for that, though. It really did its job.
