    One Minute Piece [Post your one minute ambient/drone/soundscape work]

    I am finally starting the One Minute Piece thread I have been talking about for months!
    The idea of this thread is to be a place for people to post their short (around 1 minute of less) pieces. If you don't normally make short pieces, I greatly encourage you to give it a try, because it can be a great to quickly explore ideas and techniques.

    To start things off, here is a recent Microdrone, A meal of sunbaked clay and tender leaves

    Cool. I might have a crack at this in a week or so when I've finished my current remix. I may even use the Rocket or my guitar to make it. I like the idea of one minute drones for Busy Young (or maybe not so young) Professionals in the era of 24/7 lifestyles.

    Incidentally, I fixed the link in the thread. The SoundCloud waveform was not appearing within the embedded player. If this should happen again, you can fix it by following the procedure detailed in this thread:-

    I did this back around the Christmas holidays. It begs to be expanded into a longer piece, but for now it remains a one minute wonder...

    These are all sounding great! I love the diversity between everyone's different styles, and how they approach the one minute time frame!
    I have another track to contribute, titled "A Renewed Interest in Trepanation"

    Hear some of my music at hearthis , Orfium, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, or just say Ello! Also see H.P. Dronecraft collab with aoVI.

    Thanks Razor's reverb is created with the additive engine, I love it

    I do have Eos and Aether in there, but still.

    I made a slow sequence in Numerology and recorded a minute of the sound in Live, then duplicated the track a bunch of times. The first three I filtered into low, mid, and high bands so I could adjust levels/add subtle effects, the rest were mangled into the glitches, bloops/drips and fast warbles.

    The chimes are from Reaktor Prism.

    This is a fun idea for a small project. Here's my attempt:

    I like it. Dark and more than a little sinister, and those hits/creaks coming out the right side of perfect for the mood

    Dug these out of the archives, gonna put em on my next thing I think. Short songs forces a kind of purity.

    First of these for a while. Some reverb-heavy bass played in my garage.

    I created a few sets of 1 minute pieces a couple years ago, called "Half A Dozen Donut Holes". The first two volumes were exactly 1 minute length per piece. Subsequent volumes varied from 1 to 2 min. All sounds are generated from hardware modular synth modules.

    EDIT: Moved them to a separate soundcloud account:
