Hey everyone, this track is a long one! It's pretty much the audio form of a short indie film. I would recommend downloading this track and listening to it on an mp3 player while walking around, at night if safe, for the beat experience. I completely understand that there will be people who do not wish to listen to a 16 minute ambient song, but rest assured THIS IS NOT REPETETIVE DRONE lol. It is a vivid soundscape, progressing into different tones and themes. Be patient, listen before bed, open your mind a bit, and try something different. ;)

I made this track to represent my thoughts while depressed. I was feeling almost "insane" for a while, driving for hours on end to try and calm my thoughts and place everything together. I would go for walks at night in the woods, watching trees pass by me. I would sit in my dorm and just stare at the ceiling. I couldn't possibly describe what emotions I felt during this depression, but after all of it was over I decided to try and convert it into music. I do this with most of my ambient tracks, and after five months of work I am finally done with this 16 minute opening to my upcoming progressive ambient album, "N".

I spent the majority of the five months it took to write this track piecing together my thoughts into what I thought would best express them. I don't expect everyone to like this track of course, because it is very experimental. I would absolutley, positivley, love to hear feedback on this track. If any imagery comes to mind, then please don't hold them back. By all means, feel free to expand your mind and, when ready, put on your headphones, open up a window, sit down, relax, go for a walk, or do whatever you feel will help you best engulf yourself in this track.

What this track actually "means" or "represents" is all up to you, the listener. It can be a relaxing track to help open up your mind, a track to help recover lost memories, background noise for a game, an interesting listen to break from "normal" music, or just a complete pile of crap because I know not everyone enjoys ambient, heh.

Anyway, I always enjoy expressing myself through this sort of music and hope you enjoy it. I worked pretty hard on it, and am glad to have finally finished it. Enjoy! By the way, for those of you out there who support my music... thank you, thank you, and thank you. Knowing that people enjoy what I make really gives me this great feeling inside. The fact that people understand it is even more incredible. Love you guys <3. I am always up for chatting, so send me a PM and let's talk and stuff.

You know, I don't usually listen to this kind of stuff, but you took me on a journey here and made me feel something, which is more than a lot of pieces can say. I think you conveyed what you wanted to well. Good job.

I hope you enjoyed the journey! Thanks.

Haven't listened to your music in 6 years. You've gotten better.

You creat a lot of great songs, i like to use it when im studying and traveling "trhough the space" i use a program called space engine, i can travel to stars and planets, and this song will make me go far beyond, everytime you have some great like that, you can mail me^^

Really thanks again, and im a rock'n roll lover but yours songs, go to the top of my list.

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

Yeah, I really wanted to go outside the box on this one. I am so tired of hearing the same Rock and Pop styles from the radio. It is nice to hear people can adjust their tastes from Rock and go into something entirely different. Its always a good idea to open up the mind a bit. Thanks for listening!

Just the thing to help with that spontaneous depression that just never goes away.

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

I am really glad you feel that way. It is almost like it helps heal your mind, which is something i have always wanted to achieve.


I'm clueless when it comes to Ambient, even more so than other genres I never touch... I never understood the concept behind Ambient music, listening to most of it made me just think it's basically ambient noise in "song" form.

But this track made me realize something.. Ambient is an adventure through space and time. In particular, this track made me want to fly into outer space and go on an epic adventure with other sentient life in the universe.

Not very constructive, is it? Oh well, even if this track helped me understand what ambient is all about, I still know nothing about making it.
So instead, you get my random and largely useless praise.
