this music got some emotion
i really like the music it really calm me down when im down about something anyway you got a great imagination i like your work as well amazing job keep it up dude
The imagination can truly be a powerful thing. I'm so glad you enjoy it :)
... I can only bring myself to like the 3:50 - 8:00 part. The rest of it is too quiet, too slow for my tastes. I know that you were trying to convey depression and such, but the aforementioned part is already pretty dark, like an rebellious struggle in a dystopian future. Makes me imagine a mixture of Doom with Half-Life and other dark games I have played.
All the rest is very grim-sounding and makes me imagine an empty landscape in some far-off planet. I suppose you have accomplished what you set out to do, express your depression in your music, but I don't want to be depressed so I don't like it! In fact I don't think I've ever experienced clinical depression. If it's as bad as your piece makes it to be, heavens save me if I ever do!
Well, I don't want to nescesarilly make others feel depressed... at least not for the entire song. I simply want people to feel a sort of unknown, distant calling from their subconscious. You would be surprised at what sort of new feelings can be created when you sit back and open up your mind a bit. Don't be afraid of the feelings, just let it all sink in. I think many people will stray away from these feelings, however, and start to think about the song on technical terms. Being depressed for me now is simply a calling to make more music and write. It is a feeling of isolation and dark structure, but I seem to have grown accustomed to it.
Ambient pieces are so much better...
...when you give them a title like "Ironesque Valley" or "Into the Eclipse". It gives you something to imagine, therin lies the true meaning of ambient music, don't you think?
Yeah haha. The full title is actually "Ironesque Valley of Lost Exsistance". I really enjoy Steve Roachs titles and album art work.
As others have said this is rather strange and "unsettling" but really, really well done. I've also been through some kind of depression recently and you've described the feeling very well. Good job and keep going!
I think that sometimes we like unsettling sounds. I simply compose what I feel, so I guess I feel unsettling at times.
I really like what you did, cause in my opinion it's really setting a kind of dark mood. what I mean is I can imagine games like half life and such with this kind of music on it, possibly even this track ^^ I get a sort of... how do I put it... "lost in space" kind of feeling, cause it really got me "drifting", by which I mean that I ended up in some kind of trance. I'll bet putting this on my iPod *clicks download* to listen to whenever I feel like laying down in the grass field near my house and "drift" away. so keep up the work and I'll consider buying your CD, in case you'd be able to ship to europe, and I can afford it ^^'
PS: I'd appreciate it if you listened to my music too, and gave me me feedback and/or tips? it's not much yet, but there's more coming :3
I think that in the future, I would absolutely love to compose ambient tracks for games. In fact, I have looked for games here on Newgrounds to compose for. The eery sounds of Silent Hill are my favorite. Sure man, I will give you some feedback. :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
