Description
I was playing at layering sounds and this came together very quickly. I just went for as much of an ethnic feel as I could while still keeping the overall Ambience. The tune illustrates the notion that much of what we do today is rooted in a past all but forgotten and buried.

I hope you enjoy it.

centuries of aboriginality here
Nice work, powerful and smooth at the same time. Tiny suggestion, it seems like the drums and bassline were very insistent throughout, as was the "wall of sound" feel, and a little softer lead-up/intro before getting into the groove might be better, as well as alternating with at least one softer more skeletal section... but that's minor, this piece is very enjoyable without any changes. And it does have a nice melding of ancient and modern feel. The voice sample sung at different pitches was well done, sounded quite good, not over-used (although the long reverb tail on the voice began to sound slightly synthetic due to lack of vibrato, I think.)

Anyway, welcome to Macjams, and I hope these thoughts of mine are helpful. I also really enjoyed your detailed work with Lori on Siren's Song too. You've definitely got a new fan here!

ttfn,
Drakonis

Welcome to MacJams
Rich and luxurious production. I'm a big fan of drones, so my ears are delighting at the way that swirling and organic base note holds the foundation for all the other sounds which drift in and out of it. Beautifully and imaginatively mixed too, you really know how to get the best out of the sonic materials at your disposal. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Actually I'm more the 'Eee bah gum' variety of Englishman than 'Cor Blimey' But it all means the same to us!

Thanks for the comment.

Ambient with a heavy groove.
You're tickling both of my musical nerves with this one -- beautiful, droning ambient and a heavy rock/fusion bass groove. That one-step chord change always works well. This is my new favorite song.

Beautifully done
Carries with it the soul of mankind. We may all walk to the beat of a different drummer, but the music is the same for all of us. Excellent piece.

Hi Wharmton
I'm guessing Lori sent you this way... you'll do very well here... with your rich textured and etherial work... this being post no exeption... very dramatic and ominous... is that vocal a loop?

Sample
The vocal is a stock sample found on the M3. Actually Patrick Feehan (Futzpucker) told me about this place a long time ago. It took Lori to remind me about it.

Excellence
I'm glad to see you've gotten Omnisphere, a synth that was designed for your music. I'm also very glad you've joined this site. Your music is exceptional - always very expertly done, and always a great listen. This track is typically interesting, professional, deep, dynamic, and compelling, like all your music I've heard.

I hope you continue to post your music here, Andrew. As I mentioned a while back, you will be a highly respected member of this community.

well first of all...
Welcome to MacJams!!!!! Sorry I'm late to this party. I've been coming and listening to your song over and over again thinking - geez I really need to write a comment! But then I keep getting lost in the music. So...it's your fault I think! This is an incredible composition. Powerfully deep and rhythmic. It vibrated deep inside with a heartbeat sort of soothing and the higher ehru sounds and voices kept me engaged just enough to not forget myself completely in the beat. Incredible instrument and sound choices which you've mixed to create a wonderfully diverse soundscape. Great variety in sonic textures and tones. I loved the use of fading to bring ideas in and out. This is incredible and a brilliant introduction to your work. I can't wait to hear more!!!

Wow!
Takes a lot of talent and experience to put together an ambient track with this kind of subtlety, intensity and balance. Impressive! The stringed instrument samples beautifully illustrate the backdrop of soothing synths and the percussion builds until the end helping the track grow and increase intensity. Rare to come across a clean, crisp mix with this kind of depth and power.

When you stand on the edge
of the canyon wall and you see how the river has sculpted for thousands of years you can imagine a music such as this cutting through the ages. Thank you.
