  • Breathe, and They May Hear You - ElectroProg (Seismic Displacement)

    Here is part two of "Fools Rush In". During the final mix of the earlier track, I realised that the reverbed pad beds would make an effective starting point for part 2, so this piece continues the thematic and harmonic corruption introduced in part 1. I mixed this in the dark, so it's probably best to listen to it that way, preferably using a large set of speakers, but it sounds ok on my monitors. I put together a minimal mastering chain for this using 2 T-Racks EQ processors, no compressor or limiter required. I'm looking forward to giving the 432 EQ a workout soon

    I suppose this is as close as I have yet come to Dark Ambient, although I have trouble resisting the lure of melody and rhythm. One out of two is quite enough, by my reckoning.

          I really like this piece - I like the way the deep tones build and swell, I like the pace of the chord progression (and the fact that there is one), I like the way the feedback sound comes in around 6:40 - in short, all of it!
          :listening:

            Thanks very much for the listen and comments. I hope you have managed to catch your breath without having to resort to the emergency services.

            "spooky" is good. That's what I was aiming for here. I'm glad you liked it

            Wait until you hear the next track. It couldn't be more different (apart from the reverb)

                I agree with you, but this track would never have appeared without "Fools Rush In", which contributed the DNA for this one.

                Thanks very much for listening to them both. Glad you enjoyed them :biggrin:

                  Once I had decided upon the core sound for this one, it came together reasonably quickly (in terms of studio time, not actual time). There is a lot of "smearing" going on here, with B2, Stereoizer 3, and Satin being the main perpetrators.

                  I'm currently messing around with a piece using multiple time signatures, and some serious smearing. Let's see how that goes.

                    Here is the 2022 remix of "Breathe, and They May Hear You". None of the instruments or music has changed, but I took the opportunity to revisit the reverb, levelling and EQ, and then mastered in T-Racks5. This should see a "release" on Bandcamp later in the year, as part of my "debut" ambient album (which was subsequently overtaken by Faders).

                      I listened to the original first, Tim, and as I went to the SoundCloud page it reminded me that I have been here before

                      great piece this and I am enjoying listening to it again

                      and now I am on to the remastered version

                        Thanks very much for taking the time to listen and comment, Andy, and thanks very much for the repost.

                        It's been instructive for me to revisit these old tracks. It was over 7 years between the original and the remix here, and I was quite surprised that I only had to make such minor changes after all this time. I should also mention that the original track was actually remixed twice within a month of its original posting, so I had ironed out many of the inadequacies in 2015.
