I'm glad to see something so deserving on the top 5. There is quite a bit of depth in this piece. I has the perfect amount of drone and development where it's subtle, but still revolves around my mind over and over.
Great work :)
Wow, thanks for the compliments Sine! I have always enjoyed your ambient work and thought your halloween entry was very well done. I wanted this to be complete drone with chill to revolve around a mood of meditation and relaxation. I wanted it to cause you to think and visualize. I wanted it to let people breathe.
Thanks for the link/download to this track, really good listening. It's a very visual piece, conjures up all sorts of imagery, as all good ambient music should. The pad sounds are very contradictory in my mind, in a good way. There's a glassy/icy cold feeling to the pads in the mid to higher frequencies and yet a noteable warmth in the sound too, perhaps thanks to the subtle bass frequencies giving your ears a little hug:).
Perhaps you could develop the track even further with some extra layers, maybe some deep sub-bassy pad elements or some fx/field-recordings and some extra synth layers. Whilst the track definitely conveys your mood I still think there's scope for creating a more evolving piece. At the drop out in the middle section around 4:30 it would seem a perfect opportunity to bring the track back in with a big flourish of extra layers, sounds and development to take the end to a big crescendo, but then again, perhaps adding to much and busying up the track may be detremental to it's emotive nature, it's a hard one to call, but maybe worth trying out?
I actually had thought of going out to my classroom and record people walking by and mixing it into a subtle background atmosphere that could provide a certain sense of "insanity", "enlightenment", or other things depending on how the track is interrupted. 4:30 is exactly where I wanted it haha, but I am not skilled enough to develop such a layered 2nd part. I did not want to stop it there, however, because I wanted to create another soothing pad development. I also had problems making the right type of sounds that, as you said, wouldnt distract from the flow of the song.
I am creating an album currently that has a mix of ambient / jazz / classical. It is all about the journey of this man who falls in love with something/someone and comes to realize its all in his head. I have been slowly improving my ambient skills and was very happy to get such a great turn out from this one. I just need to add a bit more of a "spark".
Thanks a lot KB, your one of the guys I look up to here. :)
Huh, congrats on top five.
I'd say not bad at all. Does have a emotion to it. I can't tell though if its sad or scary hehe. All in all though its a fun listen and would be used for alot of interesting parts in games and or movies. Wonderful work on this. Keep it up bro!
Thanks, im glad you think its deserving of the top 5. I know how much ap stuff you listen to so that means a lot.
nice mellow vibe- this would compliment an animation awesomely
I hope it will go to one some day. :)
I was watching ufo vids and weird things like that while this was playing. Suprising fit....you should offer this up to "ufo" documentaries and stuff. It was perfect! I dig it alot!
4.56 / 5.00 (+ 0.095)
UFO documentaries lmao. Im planning on shooting some experimental footage of nature and nightime things with this if I have the time.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
