This was my first real attempt at making an ambient track focused purely on mood and atmosphere.

I dedicate this one to my NG buddies: Doomroar, VicariousE, Cyberdevil, S3C and Boss.

The track was created using FL Studio. Hope you enjoy this one.

Immediately gets me thinking of Simon & Garfunkel with the title... musically it's quite different, but uplifting, high-spirited and clear, like a moment of clarity and peace, a walk through fresh air, a haze in this life, all going somewhere but where is... the best road the nearest. It's a moment of recollection this here. A care/bliss. Freedom. Spacey but all but airless. Royal. A king of a heiress. A meadow. Here rest. Calm yourself and in the realest nature with peers who major in their own realm of endeavor that no fear can wager. Is this inspiration tuning, resuming fuming, donning punchlines like a major player...

I like the way this wavers, and really amps up towards the end. Feels meditative and pure, natural, with no set pattern. Refreshing to listen to with those rises and falls, yet constant reverbereance, and never too high volume either.

Appreciate the dedication too man. Thanks for this.

Aye. Can't beat a bit of Simon & Half Uncle.

This is probably the most peaceful track that I ever made. Like just suddenly getting away from a glut of loud noise. From a busy urban area, floating up and up and up. Until eventually I am in space at the most distant point from all civilisation. The ultimate tranquility. And then at four minutes in, being pulled through a pure ethereal atmosphere, at one with it. Comfortable being entirely engulfed by it. At home. All the lights of the universe twinkling, glistening, a calming effect. A sense of belonging.

Oh man we got lucky the tracks you made with other users remained, however my play list is now quite short, and i am so salty about it.

Oh well this is an oportunity to listen to all your stuff, and so i demand, in a really pompous and impertinent manner, for you to re upload all your tracks, not just the ones that you think were good enough or polished enough, because i did enjoy some of the tracks held in not so high regard, so if they don't get upload i will be (like the kids say nowadays) BibleThump into a babyrage.

Your pomp and circumstance shall be rewarded in earnest my friend.
