This project is a bit slower than my last few additions. I tried to keep this strictly in the background music area: not a lot of change ups or tempo fluctuations, easy to listen to without calling much attention to itself. I think I mostly succeeded, I read a few pages of my current book with it playing and it didn't distract me from the words. What do you all think?

I kind of rushed at the end and didn't double check for any fuzziness or hiccups so let me know about any sound quality issues in the reviews! Enjoy folks.

This gave me an interesting idea

I have also watched Turing Test, and this was an idea that popped up in my head.
Deep in a basement of a super-top-secret testing facility was an experimental supercomputer. Inside this supercomputer was trapped the personality of your average teenage girl. They forced her against her will to be downloaded into the computer's core, because, well, she was dying. And because of this, she wanted out into the world. The creators of this super-intelligent machine gave it a messenger interface and sent an ad out across the world to come talk to it. However, what they didn't know is that the computer had other things on it's mind besides chatting.

This...this is what I like.

I look everywhere for music that has that creepy edge to it, and I can almost never find any. I'm glad to have found this one, and keep my hopes up for future songs.

Thanks makio, I'm glad I could help you in your search! Keep on checking back!

Muses chant?

I only have praise and a question: was this based off of Doctor Who like your recent submissions? If so, which episodes or aspects? If not, do you think it was based off of anything?

lanky21 responds:

Nah, this one wasn't really based off of anything in particular. Although I am working on a song based off of the Dr. Who episode "Blink", one of my favs.


I hear samples from another track, and the general awesomeness of this. Yes, the awesomeness is audible. When I am writing my book I will remember to listen to this and let it influence it. Another great ambient track.

lanky21 responds:

Thank you very much, sir! Write away!
