Can't believe I forgot to review this. I listened to this when you first put it up and said to myself "I want to take the time to listen to this proper with my HD 650s.
I've always made fun of ambient genres as being a super easy. You can essentially fake it by sitting a brick on top of your keyboard. That's a gross oversimplification for a genre that can be anything you want it to be but I'm a jerk sometimes. From a conceptual standpoint I really love the way you fill out the majority of this track with grainy sweeping pads. The drum and bass is a small tease but I actually love that it's such a small fraction of the track. It's a strong track.
I think I wanted a little more texture from that ambient section though. You could have fit some juicy pads and samples in there to help give that area some character. It's a great pad but give me some running water sounds, a train thundering by, a park filled with children, a lion growing, maybe bring that drum and bass back later... anything. I get bored easily when I listen to ambient genres so it's more my own fault for wanting more from the second half of the song. I need to chill more :p
This is a really powerful track. I'm glad you wrote something so different from everything I've been listening to. Great melodies and pads. This reminds me of the experimental drum and bass I used to hear on newgrounds back in high school. This track has some serious flavor. Just throw some samples in next time to make grandma quarl happier next time, ok? Much love protagonist Nacho.
