Another spontaneous idea for a song, and another track from my debut album, Under the Twilight Tree. I'm releasing this early as a preview and to show NG that I'm not dead. This song took about an hour and forty minutes to complete over the course of who knows how long. It's another short track, but without the intention of scaring the listener.

This is one of those tracks where its up to the listener to create a meaning for themselves. The title serves to give a general idea, but I didn't really think of any deep message to put behind this one. So just sit back, and take a brief moment to think of whatever.

Comments, favorites, VOTES, etc are always appreciated.

Also, I have a facebook page! =D ages/TwilightShade/648724 56744

If you like my stuff become a fan of me there, too. (haha shameless advertisement).

It's ok...

But like the person said below me, it's more ambient.

It's pretty repeatitive too.

Good start.

Sounds sort of like the beginning for a good ambient track (that said, this isn't trance, this is more or less ambient). ;)

The choir seems a bit dry. For a tune like this I would expect the "voice" to fade in and fade out proportionally, so that there's no real gap of silence in between them. The Bell is also short-lived I think. I would add some massive reverb on that (say a 4 second delay, 1k low cut, aprox. wet at 80%, 15.5kHz high damping and 40-50ish diffusion--maybe a little predelay but not too much). I don't know, those settings came off the top of my head, but that should give it a really chilly feel to add to the "spookiness" of the song. Learn what all those knobs do, too ;). Reverb is one thing you're going to be messing with a lot.

Phasering caught me a bit off guard. It's a good concept but it should really ease in to build tension (which is a major point in tracks like this). Slowly raising the FX level of the phaser as the song progresses is a good way to do this. Try adding a instrument or two also; especially something with higher-frequencies to get a more bright shearing sound while covering the high-end... maybe a couple of effects. Go crazy, but not too much. ;)

Anyway, like I said, I think it needs a bit more variation, but this is definitely grounds for a good beginning of an amazing ambient piece. :D Keep producin', man!
