Warning, if you don't like glitchy drums, then don't listen to the middle/end of this song XD

I worked quite a while on this ambient song. It has quite a lot in common with Brian Transeau, but with my toutch I think ;)

Ah, just tell me what you think, if you want.

Really smooth...

lol - when I heard the first little section it immediately made me think of "The River of Shadows", if you remember when I made that. But it immediately became much more than that.

The harmonies, chord progressions, and melodies are fantastic here. Just phenomenal.

One thing that I might suggest involves the bells. They sound just a little bit odd - like you've lowered their pitch a little too far or something. I understand that you want that middle to high range with them, but it just sounds a little off. I would suggest adding some lower range chimes to help bring out the bells a bit (and to build tension and intensity!), and also to either put the bells back to their regular range or use something similar like vibraphone, which has something of the range you seem to be looking for. You could alternatively spend some time getting the bells to sound a little more realistic, if you feel like putting that kind of work into it.

That's a really small issue though, and it's not something that a lot of people are likely to notice. In all, I really love this song. You've got a lot of really cool things happening here. The effects are a little weird, but I like the way it works. Weird makes it different, and different is always nice.

Overall, 10/10, 5/5, favs. Yet another brilliant creation.

Power to you, Mjattie!
