  • Omen (2013 Remix) Dark, tense '70s ambient

    Originally from December 2009, this is the third remix. This track is also going on the album later this year. This was remixed using the new EnergyXT2.7beta



    Warning - no drones and only moderate reverb

    Really like the part from just short of half way to the build with the choir, very cinematic and grand.

      Yeah definitely a fan of the mid to second half!!! It's gorgeous. There's something so sinister about that low deep pad in the background...but to an ambient artist it's pure beauty. :D Really enjoy your more "ambient" side seismic...gotta make more of these again!!! :tu:

        For some reason it reminds me of the music for The Black Hole. Not sure why. :uh:

        Nice work! Ambient without drones! :D

          Thanks very much for the comments. This track was probably influenced by TD (atmosphere), King Crimson and Genesis ('trons). It came together fairly quickly over 2 days. The first section was pretty much improvised on the keyboard and at the computer. The second part was "arranged" after re-discovering that slow repetitive motif sitting around on my hard drive. I just added the 'tron choir and the guitar-like synth lines and the track was complete.

          I hope to make another ambient track or two later this year. I currently have a few other things I'm working on.

          Glad you all liked it

            Hmm, much more melancholy sounding than I was anticipating...but that's a good thing. A sort of pensive atmosphere on this.

              Thanks very much for checking this out, Pyne.

              I think the sustained guitar-like synth contributes a lot towards that melancholy vibe. All of the instruments on here were free VSTis that I "grew up" with and I still use them fairly regularly. I suppose I feel comfortable using them now. Call me sentimental.

                There's certainly nothing wrong with that. Use whatever works for you...our instruments/tools are a means to an end; whether they be your guitar, the latest synth from NI, a freebie some generous soul threw together in SynthEdit, or hitting the side of a dumpster with a hammer and recording/sampling it.

                And I hear ya on being sentimental. Though for me, the term "haunted" often seems more appropriate...

                  The start of the song reminds to a movie soundtrack or something, like Hitchcock.

                  Ther's a lot of variation in this piece, I can learn from this!

                    That intro was the first piece I ever deliberately wrote with the intention of creating dissonance (as opposed to to its accidental creation in my regular output :giggle. I gained a lot of confidence from the experience, so it was an informative process for me.

                    Good luck
