A short ambient loop made for the mod "Duraal Keiz" this time, I used some samples from diverse sources, such as Fergusson glissandos sample and a great aĆ¹punt of sound editing.

Did I ever mention Penderecki with you? That's what those strings remind me of, with the crazy slides and what not. Sounds like a huge influence on you.

I feel like maybe it's a touch loud? I like how the cool synth thing in the first 15 seconds of the track is the focal point, and the noises from the second half hog the spotlight a little bit.

Also, I don't know if it's the ng audio player or what, but the loop gets snipped at the end. I'm guessing it is, because it does that to my loops all the time, too.

Interesting piece!

Hey! Thanks a lot, Yes I do know him!

Well I will consider that review, don't worry, I have to admit that it was a test, because I'm learning new ways to entertain people with my sound.

and yes, you can hear some kind of snip, oh well. :v

Looks like you have a committed follower below me. I like the atmosphere--
At 17 seconds, it sounds like some chaotic birdsong along with some kiddies playing at the playground in the distance. A bit short, but interesting nonetheless

HeAvEn-SmiLE responds:

Hello, thank you for reviewing this little part. :)

Yes actually those sounds are reverse violins glissandos mixed with some potamentos, and some pizzicato. This sound belong to Fergusson, That I admire for his works and his sound mastering.
I added some more glissandos, I changed the pitch, the speed, I made it a loop so it doesn't have to look wierd, and there you go, I have to admit that Cathexis wasn't really long to do, but it was fun, it is a "preview" of a piano song I'm making right now, retaking the concept of Paradise of Lies, but making it a lot better in my point of view.

By the way, Thanks for following me, I really appreciate that, and I'll take some time to see some of your musics, Looks like I finally found another person using a digital piano. :)
