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.




Very cool stuff. 3:55 to 8:00 was pure gold for me.

I always tend to be emotional with my music and all that BS haha.

Slow start

Don't get me wrong, this is an awesome piece, but it took that long to get going, that I seriously thought I was falling asleep. You could save maybe 2 minutes in the early going and not a lot of the track would be lost.

The piece seems to be split into a few movements - I like that as well, as 2112, by Rush is the same. The one thing I would say to you on this is that the "breaks" just seem to drag on a little and it does detract from the whole image that the piece has.

I'm trying to picture what I might see in some sort of piece backed by this sort of ambience. The set of Logan's Run maybe, but without so much of a crowd. Perhaps an observation dome, where someone is gazing out into space, in search of inspiration, or a lost ship, approaching port.

I'd love to see someone with the balls to take this on, as you've given it the thought to make a piece like this and the only limitation I can see is that the size of the piece might mean that the movements have to be separated out, to give the piece a chance of some graphical accomplishment.

Haha, I think that falling asleep thing is a good thing :P

I do understand how the size can be shortened or at least split into different tracks, but I feel that this track simply explains my entire depressional bipolar like attitude during my first semester in college. Simply put, I want to make this a musical form of fact, a history if you would, of my depression. I want to compose what I felt. Thanks for the review!

This piece is pretty incredible bro; very emotional, very powerful, and very deep.

I too can remember a personal phase when things looked very grim, and it seemed like every element of my life was turning to shit right in front of me.
Sleepless nights, long walks to nowhere, staring at the ceiling, "self-medicating" , and writing long ambient soundscapes like this one here to try to describe my feelings. Unfortunately everything I produced back then felt forced, and most of it sounded pretty angry.

I Digress...
this song sounds PERFECT for a film project, maybe in black and white?
An exact setting is hard to nail with just the audio though; the beginning makes me think of someone wandering through an abandoned city, and surveying the remains of a once booming town full of people. Yet as the synths pick up speed and start to generate a melody, the mood switches up with pulses of an almost futuristic-electronic feel.

Aside from my personal feelings on this song...
I really enjoyed your choice of soft instrumentation, and the mastering on all of your samples sounds very well mixed! The dynamics in the piece were brilliant, and I can't thing of a thing I would change.

Fantastic work!

Thanks for using those adjectives! I don't know how I ever actually got the time
together to produce such a long track. Most people can barely create a song over 4 minutes long. It is hard for me to create music due to writers block, but I guess what's when passion kicks in. Thank you very much for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed it!
