This track is pretty much a celebration of 3 years of Forgotten Dawn. :)

Part of the inspiration comes from my own pieces, especially old tracks. I wanted to create something as multi-layered and atmospheric, abstract. Maybe I succeeded, maybe I did not. To you, the final judgement.

Wow, tu eres un artista interesante. Me recuerdas mucho a Autechre y Boards Of Canada como el concepto, la atmósfera, los sonidos y su experimentación. Realmente, me gusta mucho tus canciónes, y estas es mi favorita de usted. Gracias por traer aquí la verdadera música en Newgrounds ^^

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thanks for your kind words :)

this is some great music mate. You've created a really interesting atmosphere that sounds peaceful yet really unsettling at points because of the different textures you use. Love the detail in the drums and FX especially at 4:00. At points this sounds like some Boards of Canada stuff on Geogaddi. The bass sounds great, mixing is solid and it's very well arranged. Can't really fault this mate it's just good music!

Nice work

ForgottenDawn responds:

Hey thanks mate, I appreciate it! :)
Boards of Canada is really good, I enjoy it sometimes. Interestingly enough I was also kinda influenced by Massive Attack. The whole Mezzanine album is one of the greatest works I've ever heard.

This song is intriguing. It actually reminds me of a virtual reality 3D artwork I went and experienced at the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia. Your overall vibe is very cool, a kind of "intriguing" electronic ambience. I'm not sure how else to describe it, and I really have no idea where to start on critique other than just I very much enjoyed it. The only thing that pops to mind is that I feel like it's much more a new take on some of your older works than a simple revisit, which I think is a good thing. It's funny you mention your older work, because though I love your Moontears Suite, I find myself very often listening to Plaenitude. The overall vibe of that piece is something I fell in love with actually a few months after the first time I listened to it. I think a revisit on that track in the same way you've done on this would be great to listen to and something cool for you to experiment with. Look up Jess Johnson, Wurm Haus at the NGV, that's the environment I imagine this track on.

Keep up the good work!

ForgottenDawn responds:

Hey, thank you so much! I'm gonna look that up for sure.
To quote a friend of mine it's "kind of a mash" of everything I've done so far while experimenting on a different route. It's always fun to bring old and new together from a renewed perspective. :)
Thanks again!
