    indeed. In a way, KARMA on one of my bits of gear have added a lot of improvisational elements to the early stages - however, as you say, because of its intricate possibilities, it keeps bringing in if not beats always but dynamic elements... so it is fascinating but the opposite of "pure" ambient. I kind-of gave up after a while on the "pure" stuff

      id say probably yeah. not on purpose mind you...and i think id rather claim that i havent. if im honest though...yeah. if i listen to my stuff...i hear similarities...in the kinds of sounds i use, or how i use them...in some of the structure...that sort of thing. id like to think im not so predictable, or consistent (if thats a better word)...but it seems i am. i just make stuff...and the stuff i make seems to have things in common with the other stuff i made. it is what it is.

        That applies to me as well, and only recently I manage to find out how the music theory works after a long long study...

        That said, music scales are really powerful on how your music sound they can define a whole style if you are after it...

          Id say I have. I'm always heading towards smooth, unabrasive ambient. Sometimes I use wind and string instruments. Love the effect that can have over a rich ambient pad.
          If I'm writing dark ambiance, it tends to be droney, unpredictable and just plain erie.

            I think I've found and lost my sound several times over the years. Certain things return but hold different potential because of things learned in between.
            It's akin to the concept of spiritual growth where you learn the basic concepts over over and over but each time you learn them you have a light higher understanding of that concept, because it is informed by what you have just learned. So rather than walking in a circle you are walking an on a spiral staircase. I am not sure I answered the question.

              Yes i think I have a sound.

              Ambient music is the one genre which i don't worry about my 'style' (or lack of,) I just do it, when I can.

              The space is infinite, (the magnification greater, out or in,) the visuals are better. Sometimes night skies (and my awe) can be summed up with a single drone.
              With other styles of music i can get bogged down in the construction, or jammed up by lyrics (I'm really NOT into lyrics at the moment.)

                I'm still working on taming all of my ideas. I tell folks that I make ambient music with a crunch! lol As a sound designer, its hard to put that aside sometimes so they show up in my music. I have ice clanging in my metal cup and ticking clocks in some of my music.

                I am "Two Steps From Hell" with an "E Mantra" that reads like an " Enigma" shoved through an "automachine". Not even "Trent Reznor" or " Merlin" can stop the "Astral Waves" and "Solar Fields" from driving me into "Delerium".

                  I can be a little jealous of ppl who seems to have found their sound. Who have found their type of music, their artform…

                    I'm not sure I like the idea of a person's sound being a fixed thing, like a monogamous marriage. Our tastes and likes change over time, a friend said this to me earlier today

                    They're playing modern blues on the work stereo today. My 15year old self would have been in heaven. My 37year old self just put in headphones and turned up the techno
                    So, yeah, I wouldn't get too hung up if you don't think you've found "your sound", if you find something you like in this moment, then there you go, there's your sound. If it's not the same sound tomorrow, meh, who cares?

                      When I started making music in 2009, I already had found my sound.
                      It variagates with the different instruments and mood, but I am what I am, and thats my sound.

                      But it deepens more and more...

                        Well, I think I have found *some* sound - or wait: actually several. But I have no idea if any of them is "mine". ;)

                          I think I have found a range I am comfy with for my Ambient stuff. Now to say I will stop looking to try out new things within that sound is a lie. We all look for ways to enhance our sound or style.

                            The BIG question - I can't say I have found my sound. I think every time I sit down at my DAW or with an instrument some new sound comes about. I've always been one to let the loop, or patch, an old public domain audio clip or hook, speak to me. Then I try to work with the vibe it gives me and let it create itself. The music evolves in front of me. I guess I want to stay out of its way as much as possible.

                              I have no idea if I have found my sound or not. I started with the simplest idea: cinematic, and the basic idea of ambient, and I have been building my work around that ever since I started.
                              I like to stell stories through sound, sometimes a little more nuanced, sometimes with more visual elements. But I just follow my own techniques I have found to make my 'sound'.

                              I have been building my music catalogue for over a year, and I have a LOT to learn! I'm a total newbie when it comes to production.

                              I don't know if I will ever find my sound, but I strive for distinction rather than conformity. I try to do things my own way.

                              Regardless, I enjoy every moment I spend with my tools.

                                The Long Light as so far it has been more system based music it sound just a bit to much like some ENO to call my sound.
                                The Glimmer Room on he other hand has evolved into sounding a bit pastoral due to my love of string and vocal like sounds and has a nostalgic twist, totally rose tinted glasses look back to the turn of the last century pre industrial revolution.
