Bah. Still can't put out much new stuff. This was made around October, when I saw the movie Gravity. This uses a lot of interesting ambient effects I had lying around which I edited and made into more expansive sounds.

The first part is inside the space station, and the second part is outside. I think it should be pretty clear where they transition. ^_^ Clipping there was partially used for the effect itself.

I had hoped to collaborate with bassfiddlejones on this, but I guess real life got in the way. It happens though, and I think this is good enough to put out anyway.


Oh yeah and uh, happy new year.


Good stuff. Though this is a very minimalistic piece you use what is there very effectively. I really like those echoy noises in the first half - they give a really nice atmosphere. Plus those really nice and subtle strings (that sound a little metallic somehow).

The piano in the first half is really nice too. Great outer space feel.

This piece is making me think that I should really be spending more time on instrument selection and sound design and blablbalbl. AKA BUY OMNISPHERE. lol. Anyway good stuff.

Hey there, john.

All those echoy noises are random things from like, random sound effects I used in Birth of an Astral Nation, something from Logic which I exported and edited, and then a cool sound made from rubbing a bass drum with a finger.

Also. >spending more time on instrument selection and sound design. BUY OMNISPHERE
I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS. Find me on IRC. SkyeWint on irc.rizon.net or on irc.esper.net (yes, I joined there finally as you suggested. Get yer bum on and let's talk)

Love it, it is so awesome how simple it is yet like a black hole it drags me in, making it impossible to escape it. Really cosmic feel. Well done dude and happy new year.

SkyeWint responds:

Sometimes simplicity is good, isn't it?

I had the idea in this about how empty space really is, and I thought minimalism would really help with that.

Happy new year!
