Northern Travels EP - Wintry Ambient Music


Author Comments

Here's my new EP, "Northern Travels". These four songs were inspired by Jeremy Soule's ambient music as well as works from a few other ambient composers. Two of the songs haven't been published on Newgrounds before.

I used Spitfire Audio's Albion Tundra in every song. It's one of my top favorite libraries - almost every sound it has is beautiful in some way. Surprisingly, I used 8DIO's old Adagietto library quite a lot. The sordino arcs have a beautiful tone and are highly emotional.



Eternal Peace - 0:00

This song depicts a vast, barren, and cold landscape where there is an eternal peace.

Lost in a Frozen Dreamland - 1:35

"You find yourself in a frozen dreamland, unsure of how you arrived, and you gaze in awe at the vast, untouched landscape. You feel cold and realize you're alone, but you're too distracted by the beauty surrounding you to be worried, and your curiosity drives you to venture further out into the land. As you travel, you lose track of your location but you pay no mind to that and keep going. Eventually you discover an utmost beautiful scene and pause in astonishment."

Realm of the Snow Elves - 4:19

I was inspired by the lore and music of Skyrim. I aimed to depict the beauty of an imagined snow elf realm as well as the hardships their race has faced.

Endless - 7:04

This song depicts one wandering through a snowy landscape where there is little sense of direction.

I hope you enjoyed the songs! Let me know which is your favorite :)

Beautiful 👏I listened to this on my morning walk and it complimented the crisp autumn air and nature wonderfully.

Everratic responds:

I'll try that next time I go to the park. Glad you enjoyed it :)

Albion Tundra and Adagietto really does make for such a expressive combo!

The overall production, resulting atmosphere, design choices and the approach to composition that you've done throughout all of the tracks is to a level I'd certainly consider Professional for sure. You could drop any of the tracks into a large budget open-world game or as piece to play over documentaries and it will work. Not much else to say, great job overall ;)

I'll buy it when I can. Been recently stung for money having to replace a few things breaking on me haha

Everratic responds:

Indeed! I thought Adagietto was a shitty library for years, but one day I was looking for the right strings sound for my composition, and I rediscovered Adagietto's arcs and was amazed by their utility. 8DIO's arcs are "game-changing".

Thank you for the nice comments. I'm happy to hear that my studying of ambient music paid off.

I'm sorry to hear about your financial situation. I hope you get back on track soon and wish you success with the libraries you're working on.
