So I needed to make a demo for the new hand-chimes VST... I got a little carried away and ended up recording live zither, recorder, and tenorhorn and dragged poor Camoshark into recording drums too.

Oh yeah, and if you hear a low plucky sound, that's the cardboard box cello I built the other day out of boredom. It only has two strings and doesn't sound that great, but I needed an excuse to play it. :D


The track is very soothing and calm, fitting for a very relaxed snowy cave setting, which is what I'm sure you both were after when you made this.

The instruments seem to be quite varied, but you managed to space them out enough to prevent the song from sounding cluttered.

This song would actually fit quite well for an animation I have planned. If it isn't asking too much; would it be okay If I ever used this track in a cartoon for the site as long as I gave credit?

Hey dude! As long as the cartoon is non-commercial, it's completely fine to use it, as per the CC license. If you plan on sticking an ad in there, just pop a little rev share my way.

Happy animating!

Very atmospheric

love the ambience, could listen to this while laying around forever, so good n__n.

samulis responds:

Thanks dude. I always love getting to create some ambient. :)

I love experimental stuff like this, very nice work guys! :)

samulis responds:

Thanks! I'll let Camo know. :)

I think the rigidness of the chimes stands out strangely against the organicness of the rest of the instruments, perhaps mostly because of the fixed steady chime beat in most places. Also, the instruments sound like they are running into each other in places. I don't really have any advice to give. Just complaints. :]

Props for recording real instruments. I rather like the zither sweeps and the percussion.

samulis responds:

Thanks for the feedback... it was a bit challenging to figure out what to do with the chimes, but I found the arpeggio worked great in the context.
