it started out as an attempt to make background music for a movie a friend is working on, and turned into this. you be the judge.

i know its boring at the start, listen the whole way through... it gets better i promise :3

Could be more

I've listened to a lot of ambient music, this one is one of those ones that lean towards techno, and nearly always have a bassy drum part. Ambient is, to me, meaningful and breathtaking, but it was harder to identify here. Ambient relies on dynamic change and panning, and I don't think there was enough. I didn't feel the movements in the song as they went.

The positive is the song has great potential if remastered, and with different instruments. Make sure you know what you're going for in terms of theme and feel, because otherwise you'd just be taking wild pokes at making music. I think you're better than that.

Sorry if this sounds too negative/not what you were after, I try to be as critical as I can to a composer's advantage.

thanks for that, thats actually exactly what i was after. i prefer criticism (as long as its constructive lol) over being told a song is good anyday.

this was my first attempt at ambient music, so of course it was very hit and miss, im used to making techno so no surprises it came out sounding like it really. hopefully my attempts at them will turn out better in future.

ill definitely have another go at it with all this in mind, you seem to know what youre talking about :D thanks :)
