Ambient Compilation 21

Sorry that this batch of ten tracks has taken so long to create, but the move and work have had a major impact on my creative time.

There are two zip files, one for lower bitrate MP3s and the other for the rather better 320kbps files.

All of the tracks here are free for you to download and distribute.

201 to 210 – 96kbps – zip file (27Mb)
201 to 210 – 320kbps – zip file (77Mb)

210 – Dark Light

A little Aeolian mode piece made in between dusk and dawn, in the dark light. Made with four instances of Gaugear in Reaktor with some FabFilter added for good measure. I miss making music in the middle of the night.

John Wayne Gacy Jr

This haunting and yet sublime piece of music by Sufjan Stevens is stretched and effected into over two hours of a quite ethereal noise.

Take some time out. Headphones on, 50% volume or maybe less. Drift off with it.

Only available as a stream for copyright reasons.

209 – Shimmering

The sun is out and today feels altogether a brighter, more shimmering day than yesterday. My head sounds like this.

208 – Absence

I miss my son when he’s not around. It’s tough dealing with his absence. This little piece reflects how I feel right now.

206 – Mar

The tiniest snippet of a well known 1968 folk ballad is stretched out and tinkered with. Not v.long I know. More experimental than anything.

205 – Solace

Who would have thought it? I add a new toy to my little music making set-up and I get the worse creative block in a year. :( I’ve been ill too, but only after a week of no output. Finally I have a small piece that I can put up. Maybe I can take some solace in the fact that it shouldn’t be so long again before I make something else? You can hear my first use of the Zoom H4n in this.

Creative brick wall

Sorry for the lack of sound.

Nothing I’ve made in the past week sounds right. I fear that there is an element of repetition in the methods, sounds and melodies I am using.

The Zoom H4n’s (my recent purchase) manual has been consumed and I shall attempt to press it into action.

Hope to have something new here soon.
