This started as a complete experiment with some sounds I'd never before used. I decided to build on it and it ended up here! The sounds in this track made me think of the ocean, sort of underwatery synth sounds. Also reminded me of Ekko the Dolphin's sort of ambient soundtracks and the crystal themes throughout the game.

Also, sorry for the silence at the end of the track. For some reason, the file was intent on rendering 15 seconds of phantom silence.

Wow this is really cool. Those synth sounds really struck me. Kind of "talkie" which I like and they glide SO nicely. Definitely could relax to this hard

etherealwinds responds:

That's what I first experimented with actually! In fact, I used something called 'decimate voice' somewhere in FL Studio, and it was a very strange but intriguing sound. Some tweaking, and I managed to make it sound really nice! I pretty much built the rest of the track around that and the pads.

I can't say I'm a fan of ambient music, and probably never will be. But you do create a lovely atmosphere with this piece, well-done.

etherealwinds responds:

Each to their own! It'd be weird if you liked everything. I don't really think much about genres of music when I'm making it, so I don't really ever try to keep in between the lines of anything. I always try to paint a picture or write a story with sound though, and I think a lot of ambient music is very much about painting a picture with sound. I find a lot of it very inspiring :)

very psychedelic feel and chilling. i love how you always try out something new!

etherealwinds responds:

I get bored too easily is what it is. Thanks for listening and reviewing :)

Nice ambient!

etherealwinds responds:

Thanks Remile!

You know I love this, hah. Ambient music is among my most favorite genres. You've managed to completely nail both the harmonic aspects, and the instrument's picked for this, + the melodic ones, ofc. That is, not to mention your singing itself, which is (as known by most of us by now) lovely in and of itself. Wonderful wurk (wurk wurk), Jordi!

etherealwinds responds:

U better werk. Glad you enjoyed it so much! Thanks for the nice comments too! Nice comments are nice.
