Best listened to with lights off, headphones on, and eyes closed.

This is my most complicated song yet. It is an extremely emotional song and should be played with the best headphones you can get, lights off, eyes closed, and mind open. I started this track on an airplane flying over New Mexico heading towards Arkansas. I recorded some things going on and decided to add some fancy effects to them. After that, I sat down in my bed and began recording until 3:40AM. I wanted this track to be complex rather than the usual drone that I do. It has a lot of recordings of sounds, pads, and weird things that will really space you out. As always, I created it in Garageband. It really is an amazing program when you know how to use it without touching the pre-set loop library.

I put a lot of work into it, as well as a lot of heart. I hope you enjoy listening to the depths of my mind :)

Reviews always welcomed and responded.

224KBS - Thanks NG for the upload limit increase.

P.S. In case you are wondering, I am about to make an album with a lot of ambient music like this on it. I am working with an artist currently on the artwork. The album is basically suppose to take you on a trip inside your on mind, revealing your subconscious thoughts and feelings using buddhist meditation techniques through ambient music. It will be about 50 minutes long. Thanks NG for all the support you guys have given me over the past few years. It means a lot. For those of you who read my comments, heres a little gift for you: this song, in its literal sense, is suppose to be the recording of a dying man, or you dying. "Eclipse" is your eyes shutting, covering everything as if it were an eclipse. Also, if you notice, on some computers the time on the audio player glitches to "6:51", which is when the breathing starts, then goes to the actual time of 7 minutes. How did I do that you ask? No idea.


Created In Garageband with various VSTs and Plugins including Ambience and Kore Player.

SFXs created by recording my finger popping in and out of a bottle, breathing, typing on the keyboard, and various things going on inside of an airplane flying over New Mexico.

Everything played on my QWERTY keyboard.


Love it!

I love this song, to me it sounds like it'd be on a movie or videogame(even tv shows). This is really calming and relaxing and a bit sad(which is fine with me, it seems to fit me lol). If I could go up to 10,000 for voting for this, I would, but I can only go up to 10 so in my books, it's perfect. :D Now you got me wanting to do this, but I can't ah well, I'll still listen to it! :D

Quite Excellent

hey FatKidWitAJetPak,

Stellar. The voices fit well and the ambience of the airplane adds depth. You meld sounds together to form an atmosphere that is deep and meaningful. There is a good balance of frequencies here.

Good ambient listening. This is nice and soothing music that just flows along without a sign of stopping. It's 8 minutes long, and only by 7 minutes does it seem to feel a drag. But that's a great achievement.

I'm not sure what you mean by "most complicated", because I'm not an expert in this genre, but this is quite unique. You were right in that it spaced me out, but sometimes I didn't like what I heard, and I came out of the daze. But then I went back again :)

There is a nice feel to this, but I would have liked to hear some recurring motif here to remember this song by. There needs to be that memorable quality that I so admire in a song. I'm not sure about ambient music having this traditionally, but it's something that I would like to see.

This is good ambient music that spaces you out. I mean, I didn't feel out of this world, but I felt very peaceful inside. Sometimes it can get monotonous, but I guess that's just one of the cons of the genre. It's also due to the fact I have a low attention span. But I was patient. Thanks for letting me listen!

The one thing I really should work on is combining addicting tunes into the atmosphere that I have created. I need to add some sort of repeating beat / note structure. Thanks for the review :)

soooo chillll......

Someone pass the J.
This is sooo soothing. Just wanna sit around all day listening to nothing but this. Nicely done amn. :) 5/5 10/10

Meditation? A dream perhaps?

Listening to this made me think of myself dreaming of a dream being inside a dream; something like the movie "Inception". It does have a surreal ambiant life-like feel to it. It does however makes a good beat for one's heartbeats to follow when meditating.

Much respect to you man...hope your album pops off!

By the way to STCE3, I had that feeling too!

Strange feeling

Up until 0:32 I just feel like I am on a train alone going nowhere. Then the soft dark feeling starts coming and makes me feel like I am playing Resident Evil, Half Life, or Doom and I see bodies everywhere as things feed on them. I get off the train and pick up the nearest weapons which for me is a baseball bat and a small handgun.

I make my way to the nearest safe place I can which would probably be a small house and get on the roof connecting the rooftops. I sit there for days trying to figure out what to do next as they take over the city.

The slight breathing sounds I hear make me think of Giygas though.

As I continue sitting there I figure there's nothing left to do but pack up and roam the states alone trying to survive. Eating what food is left in stores and trying to keep away from the zombies and other infected creatures.

I soon stumble into a large police station that seems abandoned. I pick up what weapons I can and barricade myself in for a few more days trying to get ready to move again.

Overall, a very dark and hopeless feeling song. Very nice and brilliant work on this, looking forward to some more in the future.

Thanks for the imagery comments! I do hope to compose music for game one of these days, and I really think it would be a fun thing to do. :)
