So, I made this for Chips IV. It's an ambient piece - didn't have as much time as I wanted, so I made this and like. It's good. Surprisingly good, given I spent about 14 hours max on it.

Oh well. I'm happy with it. Chill out guys, hope you enjoy!

(oh yeah, and the voice is actually me. Super embarassed by that, hopefully it doesn't sound bad - I want to try singing and doing more vocal stuff)

Aahhh yesss.. all my old favorite ambient artists seemed to kinda die out on here.
Glad to find a new one. I needed a fix. lol. Sounds really nice all the way through!

SkyeWint responds:

Hey mate!

Glad I could help supply you with some good ambient music! I don't normally make stuff quite this ambient, but I do plan to try making more in the future, and essentially all of my music has influence from ambient music in the general atmosphere and overall feel of them. So, hopefully they'll be enjoyable for you too!

Take care~
:D

This is so beautiful and melancholic, Skye. Nothing to be embarrassed about; you sound fine, and the voice sections are melded into the mix well. While it weighs in at an otherwise daunting eight and a half minutes, the decidedly chill and relaxing vibe makes the time go by like that! *snaps fingers*

I'm kind of right on the fence with that glock, but I can really appreciate the idea. There's just enough reverb to make it work, though I feel as though a soft panning echo or something would have helped it to fit in a bit better. But I also wonder how it would have sounded as an actual music box...

Regardless, I thank you for the ambient journey. All music is personal by nature, but when you start adding vocals or voice recordings like this, it becomes even more so. Big ups for stepping outside your comfort zone.

SkyeWint responds:

Aw, thank you, CHrono! I appreciate it :)

...and aw, damnit. You're totally right, a soft panning echo to the glock would have been perfect. Nice spot!

This was kinda a personal piece - it was personal in that I made it, but the story isn't exactly mine. Made by me, perhaps - but not mine. Either way, was a very fun thing to try, and I do want to try making more ambient stuff in the future. :)

I think you've nailed down the mood correctly. It gets a little thrown off at times because the glockenspiel sounds pretty dry when everything else is reverbed to the stratosphere. I love the lead you use. What VST did you use for that?

Cool work

SkyeWint responds:

All of the instruments are from Omnisphere. :)

I actually kinda wanted the glock to be dry and almost like a music box, but I totally see why you'd say that too - just different views I guess.
