I'm programming a game with Microsoft's XNA (it's the same software used to create the popular new indie game, Terraria (if you've heard of it)). I've been working on a soundtrack for said game myself, but I also want a few songs from other users. I came across your song here, and I feel like it'd make a great addition to my game's sound. The game features the protagonist dropped in the middle of a post-nuclear wasteland of another country, trying to find a way to get back to his home, which has not been nuked. For the most part I've built up sort of an air of disconcern for the nuked people's plight in my music, but I'd like to throw in a few songs where the protagonist feels scared or lost. This song fits that bill perfectly in my opinion, that is if you don't mind me including it in my soundtrack (I will give you credit).

Your song feels very deep and spacious, however it gives a confined feeling as well (if that makes sense). The title, Stasis, really does explain such a mood. I'm going to check out your other submissions.

Fubaka responds:

In almost all circumstances, I do allow people to use my music for their projects without having to ask, so long as they credit me for the song and show me their finished work. I would like to know though, if it is your intention to sell this game, rather than just release it.

If it is your intention to profit financially from this project of yours, then please send me a PM of the details. If not, then feel free to do as stated above.

Best regards, and thank you for reviewing!

Uhhhhh~ Nice :O

A really nice, scary music :O

This tense of the leading melody , the "trembling" noise, here and there an additional interesting sound...Nice work :O

Fubaka responds:

I have made some spooky tracks on this account, but to me, this one is actually more soothing than anything else.

Interesting, too what differing soundscapes can do to each-other when mixed, because the leading melody of this song has a much different tone without the background ambiance. Often your best work is influenced by unintentional effects and processes, and this song is a prime example of that.


Hum very scary! Excellent work i must have it!

Fubaka responds:

Then download it, mate!

Also, I have that movie your icon is referencing!


I really like this (:
There's a lot going on but at the same time there's not much going on; if that makes any sense. Relaxing, but when I concentrate I can hear subtle changes. That's exactly how ambient music should be!
It seems to clip a few times at the loudest bits, but maybe you intended that. It's not like it sounds bad or anything, just make sure you have a limiter on if you don't want that happening. Other than that it's perfectly mixed and works really well.

Fubaka responds:

I did make this song a tad louder than was intended. However, I can still effectively use it as sleeping music, so there is no real need to edit the song.

Thanks for your review. It is true that a lot of my songs clip, but in this case, I think it came out a bit more favorably...

Even for ambient this is very... ambient

It's more of a soundscape, really. (then again, we're talking about ambient, right?) Anyways. I really like the feel and underlying texture of it. I think it would make great ambience for something like an art installation.

Fubaka responds:

There is an underlying melody to this song if you listen closely enough.
However, I didn't really expect people to pick up on it immediately.
I ALSO didn't expect this song to remain at a perfect 5 for as long as it did!

Thank you for your review. You should check out some of my other stuff if you are looking for a more solid song.
