Holocene – Bon Iver [ambienteered]

I love Bon Iver. I played around with a track of theirs during my lunchbreak.

I hope they don’t mind a little bit of stretching, layering and effecting.

Where You Are (Guitar Intro) – Bailey Tzuke

I noodled around with the lovely opening guitar riff in this track. No vocal used this time, but I may change that in the future.

302 – Sunnesin

This lunchtime as the sunshine broke through for the first time in a few days, I noodled about with a small ten second snippet from Elbow’s Lippy Kids. Guy’s (Craig’s?) simple, yet truly moving, two note piano chord progression was pulled apart stretched, reversed, layed and effected to reflect the magic of the light that was brightening my mood, just as Elbow’s music does for me also. I just hope he and the rest of the boys won’t mind my little twist on their wonderful work. This release, after all, is not a commercial one.

295 – Running Scared [ambienteered]

I took the winning Azerbaijan Eurovision 2011 entry and played around with a short sample of it using Ableton Live, Max for Live and Paulstretch.

Short, but sweet. Hope you like it?

Atlastop – Furthermores and Farewells Remix

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked by Martin Jensen from Atlastop if I would attempt to take track three of their beautiful album – Lily White Eyes To The Skies Over La La Land, a track called Furthermores and Farewells – and give it the Ambienteer treatment.

Having listened countless times to the track (and the rest of their album) I realised that I it might take a bit of experimentation to create a separate yet complimentary sound. I hope that I have managed this. It’s essentially a few small elements of the track, transposed, warped, effected and re-layered.

Atlastop have kindly allowed me to offer up a downloadable version. Please grab a copy and share it across the social networks. I also recommend you look up their album on Bandcamp.

Several Times II

I was recently introduced via @greenwoods to ‘Sleeps with the Fishes‘ a 1987 collaboration between Pieter Nooten and Michael Brook. I’m immensly grateful to her for enlightening me. If you love ambient, this is a must have album.

One track in particular I love is Several Times II, but at just over two minutes, its beauty is all too short for me. To help me sleep last night, I stretched and layered it with a little bit of additional reverb into an 11 minute aid to allow you to drift gently off. Here is the result of that.

I implore you to track the album down and buy it.

Kunlarim Sensiz Remix

Whilst going through an old MySpace account I came across something I did in 2008 for a remix competition on RealWorldRemixed before my ambienteering days.

Sevara Nazarkhan has a magical voice. I hope you like this and will check out more of her music at http://www.myspace.com/sevaramusic.

DJ Chloe Harris – 2 Hour Ambienteer Remix/Set

This rather wonderful surprise appeared out of the blue and has knocked me sideways.

I urge you to listen to it as it really brings some of my work to life in a way that I could not. You can stream or download it from here via Soundcloud.

If you can, please follow @djchloeharris on Twitter and check out some of her other terrific mixes and sets via Soundcloud.

A massive thank you to her and to all of you that have taken the time to listen to my output since this all began last February. It’s been a joy.

Red

I’m struggling to be v.creative myself at the moment, so I am looking to others for some inspiration. Who better to draw that from than Elbow. I love this band. I have taken this version of Red from their ‘Noisebox’ EP and I’ve cut out three small samples, stretched, effected and blended them back together. In order to ensure this piece reflects the whole of the band, Guy’s vocal is in there, but it’s fleeting.

Wait it out

I just love Imogen Heap. She could sing the ingredients from the back of a cereal box and I’d be enchanted. I took the beautiful vocal snippet from the second track on her album ‘Ellipse’ then stretched, effected, transposed and layered small segments of it. The result is an eight minute dream-like soundscape that still sounds just the way she does. Hope she’ll forgive my using a sample without permission? I’m too shy to ask for fear she’d not like what I’d made with it.
