I have decided to expand upon my first submission "Flight of the Mortician" with another installment of what I hope will become a series of related pieces spanning genres.

Enjoy and feel free to comment!


P.S. : I can't help myself - I like guitars.

Very beautiful

Couldn't quite put my finger on this track. Deffinatly original sounding and I really enjoyed the journey it took me through.

My only critisism is that until the piano arrived I was getting a little bored and almost clicked the "back" button of my browser, which would have been a great shame as I would have missed this excelent piece.

To end on a good note, everything at the point of the piano, onwards had me in a peaceful trance-like state though :)

I think with more laid-back pieces like these it can be hard to maintain a sense of development while keeping a more laid-back feel, which is partly why I added the guitars.

Thanks for the feedback!


A little over-the-top.

It doesnt sound ambient to me as it progresses, but the beginning is more ambient. The melodies work fine, but they over-power themselves a lot, and i can't hear the bass at times. The piano is a nice touch, really brings a nice element to the song. It doesn't sound standard at all, not like it usually does on a lot of songs i hear today.

So, it needs a bit of work, but it's good none the less.

8/10 and 4/5. (Kaizerwolf, from the audio ad thread.)

Thanks for the review - I didn't really set out to create an ambient piece, but after I finished it seemed to be the least inappropriate genre to put it under.



Really like the feel of this one. Could use a heavier metal sounding drum kit when the thicker parts of the tune kick in. At times the bass kick sounds too thin as well. Also maybe just a few extra effects added here and there to help with the progression and transitions but seriously nothing major. Like the patches used for the background melodies. Very nice, watery and eerie. Very happy that piano was used. First listen is very good on this one. I REALLY like the reverse (think that's what it was) piano sound mixed in with the piano track. Very sweet. The piece as a whole is actually quite dark but done the right way. I really like dark. Rated this 5 stars on site, 8 out of 10 personally (solid good). :)

PGegen responds:

Thanks for the feedback - I'm glad you enjoyed the piece!
