Safe Haven

Welcome to volume 16 of the sumirs3cjams project! This week I have a soft, somber ambient instrumental. A two-chord percussive ambient groove as the background loop and some moody soloing over the top in a rounded, warm guitar tone. The whole piece is heavily saturated in reverb. I'm going for a "calm before the storm" type of feel here. Imagine a large city on fire, in the midst of war while a group ascends to a safe haven above the chaos below. The group plans their next moves and rest before their descent back into peril. Hope to see you next week!

Dude...The Last of Us...

You got it man!! exactly the feel I was going for

What a mellow tune this one. Ambient and pure, and yet there's a grungy wisp to it that makes me think of Gorrilaz, for some reason. For some other reason I imagined it'd sound like the safe room music from Resident Evil before I played it. Strange impressions play in my head, but the ring of fire is a better suite, a suitable scenario, though I imagine just the lone drifter instead of the group, trudging on wearily as debris streaks the ashen sky. It's soft, and ambient, and peaceful, but not really a tone of harmony. I like the mood... it's like you're standing at the end of the world, and you accept it. Good piece.


S3C responds:

Gorrillaz huh, interesting...Safe room music from Resident Evil sounds fitting to me. And that last scenario you provided describes what happens in the icon for this piece. Cool. Thanks for the visual review!
