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.




This is one the best ambient tracks I've listened to in a while, and I truly mean that. I have so much I could say about this wonderful piece of music, but I'll keep it simple.
When it comes to the imagery that I see, it's all very surreal, but it has somewhat of a somber mood to it at the start of the track, then it changes to something more bright, then it fades back to something dark and dreary.
All I can really say, is that all your hard work paid off; you did an excellent job on this and I'm sure many others agree with me! :)

I really wanted to try and create a surreal track that would allow people to open up their minds and think a bit, revealing past, distant memories that were stuck inside the subconcious. I wanted to allow people to think of vivid imagery, while mediating on certain key emotions that came to mind. Most of all, I wanted people to enjoy my expressions.

Thanks for listening, and I am glad you enjoyed 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?

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

Yeah haha. The full title is actually "Ironesque Valley of Lost Exsistance". I really enjoy Steve Roachs titles and album art work.

Soul Binding

This really brings out that iner mind and makes you think. I love the fact that it's long so I can kick back somewhere and just chill with a blank stare to think. When I listen to it, it opens a whole nother dimension where can just be, live, and think freely. No chaos or control.
Deffinatly one of my favorite "soothing/ free flow" songs

FatKidWitAJetPak responds:

Yeah man. I want to be able to make tracks that will allow people to go into a sort of other state of mind where they can just freely flow. Thanks for the comments.


i am a critic, and i love music, whatever you perceive "music" to be, and so as i am not an expert on ambiance, i CAN say i appreciate beautiful things, and this was a roller coaster of a trip. i would love to work with you, but i know there is no reality in that, however i do wish to someday work with you if both of us become successful in what we love to do. peace out and keep it up

Man that blows me away. You know, we can still work together. I am doing a possible collab with an online user I know named "KKSlider", so you could totally join in with us :)

Keep doing what you do! I'll check out your stuff.


I have a pair of (expensive) Roccat headphones. They're 5.1 surround sound and designed for gaming. If eargasms existed in the eww manner, they would be white (the headphones).

My only piece of critique is that it's too short. Make it about 5 times the length and my mind will explode... literally.

Dear lord send me your headphones! :D

I want a pair of Sennheiser headphones but currently they are wayyy out of my prie range haha. And I already have something that is 5 times the length of this song... my album. ;)

I will let you know when the album is out but hopefully your head wont explode.
