Desert

Author Comments

This is a track I did about a year ago for a long-in-progress upcoming game, for a desert type landscape. It's one of my favorite ambient/world-type works, so I really wanted to at least put it up.

Featuring:
Sam Hebert (@camoshark) on percussion, throat singing
Lorelai Lyn on vocals
Myself on zither and recorders, and some ambience I recorded outside
A pad from ERA

Pretty damn cool you recorded all this live! Man I wish I had access to a studio and some mics and just go crazy recording real instruments. But looks like I'm stuck with a midi keyboard for now..


samulis responds:

No studio required! Grab yerself a Snowball or C01U or something and find a relatively dry, quiet space, and make some noise! ;)


THat this song has literally no exposure here on Newgrounds shows that there is something wrong. This is a masterpiece from my perspective. Everything sounds perfectly orchestrated, everything is at the right place, the atmosphere, the voice the sound of sand. I am listeing to this song for the last 30 minutes and I don't know why it only has 180 plays, and not a solid 5.00 rating. This belongs on the front page, it should be featured. Very good job, I really admire your work. This is professional level!

haha, thanks man. I only wish I could make it more available. One of my favorite ambient/world works, even two years later.


This is badass. Reminds me of God of War (the more chill parts, when you'd solve puzzles and stuff). I'm unfamiliar with throat singing, is that different from normal singing? I really dig the vocals in this piece.


samulis responds:

Gad you like it dude! I've actually never played God of War, but I've heard of it.

Throat singing typically involves using a low rough note and using different vocal shapes to coax out different overtones, with different cultures having different techniques and styles of course. It's common in a variety of Asian countries including Mongolia and Tibet. Those low groan-like notes you hear at the start are examples of one type of throat singing.
