    I spent countless hours composing for planetarium productions in the 90's and found my groove. Still love the warm synth sounds of my analogue gear and early digital modules, but am fascinated by the depth and complexity of the newer DAWs and synth engines. Time to find a new signature sound. I must say that I am blown away by the talent on this forum - a great inspiration!
    Awesome. That's what I like to hear! Embrace the technology...it's only getting better. :tu:

    Looking forward to your more modern day musings...

      this autumn i startet out working with field recordings. things changed dramatically and i feel there is much more to explore.

      i find myself sitting at the riverside, listening to the wind, the ships, cars, trains, birds, dogs and people passing by and everything turns out into "music".

      so i have do redefine my understanding of music. i think this will be an ongoing process ...

      everything is possible. so will there ever be "my sound"?

        YES. I have been listening to what other people call strange music since I was a teenager. I put up with "their" music always knowing I had mine to listen to. After 35 years I can finally sense the ambient music I like and recently these tunes get replayed the most on my MP3 player:

        enuui - shin'ei https://soundcloud.com/el-cubist/enuui-shinei

        Aphex Twin - Curtains

        Inlandish by Hans-Joachim Roedelius


        These tunes I can put on loop-single-track mode and maybe after about an hour I finally want to hear something else. They illicit a calm feeling I need in my life... at this time.

        I'm always open to new music to listen to anytime.

          this days I'm more on scales than on sounds. the more I dive into microtonality the more pitch and intervals become an issue.

            I have found it. Took a while though. I'm still trying to evolve it and incorporate all my influences into it without overcrowding it's minimal nature.

              not really, I get bored easily and generally go with what comes out.

                I've not really found a signature sound for ambient work. I'm all over the spectrum musically so it can be difficult to find a signature sound for each of my projects that works.

                  I think that there are particular sounds or styles of playing that every musician prefers. That said, every album has a particular flavor that makes it a whole. I just recently started creating some ambient tracks, probably inspired by Biosphere's Substrata, but as others have said, it is most difficult to keep the beats away from it.

                      I've definitely not found it, I think I know where it is to be found in the spectrum of sound, but what it is exactly I'm still working towards, learning how to create the sounds and textures I like.

                        I've found mine now... NOT what I expected, I played rock/metal guitar for 20 years.. now it's ambient, mostly dark ambient and soundscapes.

                        What a long, strange trip its been... :listening:

                          Have You Found Your Sound?

                          Well, I have 2 - 3 different styles that I like to write music.

                          A couple of months ago I bought a new equipment and that change a lot my whole texture of music, for the better of course! ;)

                          But in general I think I have establish a style, being able to produce several songs with similar sound texture.

                            I'm not even sure what specific genre I can make better music, still looking for that also.
                            The fact that I like to make music in different genres doesn't help either. What can I say? I love music so much I want to make it in ALL the styles I possibly can :D (talk about being delusional)
                            This is a fantastic thread. And, I must say, one of the things that have most lifted my music-making-morale.
                            I too have been looking for a 'signature sound', a sonic Holy Grail that would mean I had achieved some sort of musical perfection. After all, many people seem to have developed a signature sound, so why can't I?

                            Reading the posts here, I see (most) others encounter the same situation. I am not even sure it is a problem anymore.
                            I like music, but I also like experimentation. Even when I really like a sound, even when I think "Oh this is great, I must re-use it on other tracks!".... I never do! The next experiment, trying something new, something never done before is always more exciting.

                            I guess this way I will never find a 'signature sound'. Maybe I am not looking as hard as I thought I was. And I realize I am absolutely not bothered by it at all!

                              About that, I have to say that, it might not be a specific sound your signature, but instead it might be a specific music scale...or a certain type of arrangement and some other elements... ;)
                              Btw, the most interesting comment I ever received in a conversation with a friend of mine, was that even if I don't realize it, I have a certain style... What I want to say by that is, that we might have a style after all, but we don't realize is, we don't see the whole picture...

                                I guess you could say I've found some of my sounds, but I'm still searching for more.
                                I don't know who I am, but I'm still alive.
