My first venture into the ambient genre, and I'd say it came out alright. While the sound is mostly a tribal one, there are some pads to fill out the space, here. They blend pretty well, especially considering this was written for a sci-fi setting. The harmonic field is fun in this track - it uses a more quartal backdrop to set an alien tone against the tribal beats.

Hope you all enjoy.

Track name - Survival of the Fittest

EDIT: I've fixed some mixing issues that were present in the melodic instruments. They should be a little more salient now.

I really like this one.
Mixing's superb, which is always a big plus in my book.
The percussion samples are really nice dude, the snare rolls are really a good touch imo.
Bonus points on adding that church bell, no song like this is complete without one, haha

Anyways, this is really great. I can't really think of anything you could improve because it sounds so good already.
I'm really liking your ambient approach, you should definitely explore that genre some more because I love this sound.


DL'd for sure :D

Gario responds:

I actually have another rendition of this track that's cleaner & sounds more ambient... but it's being used as a part of a game soundtrack, so I don't want to post it quite yet. So yeah, I made it more ambient already :P

Thanks :)
