Falling Slowly Into Dawn:

Temple drums heard through the mist. The forest damp; cold. Dawn emerging, reluctant.

There you go Tracklings, a free poem 🙂

Ambient and ethereal, this track was made with Addictive Synth and flavoured with Dedalus, AUFX:Dub, and AUFX:Space in AudioShare.

Ambient, Tracks, Videos No Comment


A video for a change!

This Ambient track meanders along like a walk through a vague forest; meanwhile the walls between the self and the other fade, becoming indistinct, amorphous…inviting osmosis.

Apps used: Noatiki 2, AudioShare, ApeFilter, Dedalus, Caramel, TwistedWave, Auria, Patterning. Also Pinnacle Pro and CinemaFXV for the visuals.

Silvan Midnight Revisited:

This is an Ambient Soundscape made in response to a request from my son. He asked me to write a track to go with a print that he has hanging on his wall; a night time forest scene with a river running through it.

I used Gadget which, though primarily aimed at loop based EDM styles, is more versatile than that and can easily be used for more ambient work.

The Bells, The Bells!:

Today is a bit of a change, no Gadget, no drum beat, no bass, or synth arpeggios. Todays track marks a return to my Soundscape work; when I first started this blog a large percentage of the tracks were Soundscapes but for some reason there have not been very many lately. For me they are an interesting and vital way of approaching music; I try to create a landscape of sound that the listener can be immersed in, and/or a journey or story that can be followed.

Today I used Mersenne, TwistedWave, and Auria to make/craft/construct the track.

Thank you for your attention Trackers.

Major Farce:

A slow Chill Ambient piece. Another of my holiday Gadget explorations, this time I thought I would concentrate on one of the Gadgets that I haven’t used before, I really am only scratching the surface of what’s possible in this app.

Changmai is the Gadget I explored today, 6 instances of it in fact plus one of Bilbao for the drums.

Slow Throb Asylum:

A Soundscape, part Dark Ambient, part Industrial. The name describes it well I think.

Xynthesizr, AudioShare, Dedalus, ApeFilter, Crystalline, TwistedWave, Auria, SynthQ.

Calm The Fuck Down:

More of an Ambient approach today, still using Gadget as it’s quick and easy to work with, which I need while I’m on my holiday. I also used Dedalus for texture and TwistedWave for a little trim and fade tidying up.

Plain Sailing:

An Ambient Soundscape.

I made this using another of my standard modus operandi; play with a synth app making several patches and jams then combine them. Today I used Magellan and this soundscape is the result of combining three of the jams together in Auria.

Crazy Mars Procession:

An Ambient Soundscape.

I began in Sparkle, doing a jam using a mixture of files made in TC-11, iElectribe, and iMaschine as both Source and Target (I confess to total ignorance about how Sparkle works, I just play with it and see what happens).

I then loaded the result into TwistedWave where I slowed it by half and lowered it by an octave. Then I lowered that by another octave.

All three versions went to Auria for arranging, where I also added a few moments of an iElectribe beat and some moments of a MicroBrute sample.
