Shi And Silence


Author Comments

A piece I composed back in March. I'd just gotten back into the swing of composing/producing music again after a year-long hiatus, so there are certain elements of the mix I'm unsatisfied with, though not quite to the extent where I find myself wanting to remaster everything from scratch.

Sample libraries used include Eduardo Tarilonte's Shevannai - Voice of the Elves, Soundiron's Voices of Gaia - Strawberry and Apocalypse Elements, the demo version of the Friedlander Violin from Embertone's Arcane library, and various backing synth pads.

well done ,I like it

NIIICE, man niiiiice. Sounds very nice!!! Love it

This was really cool! I don't know why but it reminded me a lot of the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex op song.

Wow, this is a really nice piece! The sound choice and design is just immaculate. The drums sound fantastic - I love whichever pack your using. (That's right - I don't even know what it is, but I love it!) Furthermore, they're mixed really well. The vocals, too, sound pretty awesome. Both the whispered sounds and the higher female vocals add a bunch of atmosphere. Yes, that's what defines this piece: ATMOSPHERE. I would have liked a more solid melody or at least a bit more defined chords so I could really love this piece, but even as it stands, it's a really fantastic piece of atmospheric and ambient work. Great job!

Thank you kindly! :D

The drums are from Soundiron's "Apocalypse Elements" library. Atmosphere was definitely what I was aiming for when I composed this, haha. Glad you enjoyed the piece!

Waw this is very impressive and hypnotizing, the atmosphere is very immersive, i had chills to this Really nice vocals used in a original way the high pitch vibrato notes remind me gandalf's death soundtrack. nice synths also and the percussions are so good, it makes everything so intense ! I can meditate to this and it could perfectly fit for a movie or something like a space documentary

Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it.
