  • Hello from California!!

    Hey everyone I just discovered this forum and I already love it! Seems like a great community with the same goal in mind.

    A little bit about me: I'm from the san francisco bay area in california and make ambient/instrumental music under the name "The Captive Oceans". I started this solo project of mine in the fall of last year while I was a Junior in high school. I made do with what I could being just a poor high school student and started making instrumentals. I just recently graduated from school so I will hopefully have more time to focus on my music.

    I am releasing a 7 song album on August 1st. This album is titled "Lovely, Dark, and Deep" and I am very proud of it. I believe it's my best work so far.

    You can check out some of my music on my sound cloud here:

    Thank you! I'm excited to learn more about the creation of ambience throughout this forum!

    I think you have come to the right place...ther should be a few others around here who appreciate Frost and a good ambient tune! - I thought 'As Winter's Breath....' was highly enjoyable. The opening with its unhurried approach is impressive. Good sense for pace...more Sigur Ros than U2 to my ears ;) ---> then I listened to 'New Beginnings'...and yes, Joshua Tree as well :biggrin:
