Aural Nonchalance



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

Here's a bit of a change. I'm going more towards classical ambient with this track. I started out with a five note scale and went from there.

The volume is a little overpowering so start with yours around 50% before listening to this. (I'll have to learn post production techniques one day).

There is more string than PAD in this one. No Miroslav though. All Zebra 2.

As always let me know your thoughts.

The link to lots of free presets, etc. for the Zebra synth is as follows:

Oh, great start. . .
Quite cinematic. . . Love the on-going drone. . .
Reminds me of Glass and Reich. . .
Wonderful harmonies. . .

My. Fine work, Reinholt.
Classical ambient

Hi Boundless......
The drone. That was an element I took a chance with, as sometimes it seemed to get in the way, but on listening to the mix a few times since uploading it, the drone fits OK.

Thanks for those kind words.

Take care.

What a lovely piece of kit the Zebra is. In the right hands, that is! This is as fine a piece of music as you'd here anywhere. Excellent work, and your production sounds fine to me. Thanks.

Hi Davajonah.......
Very kind of you to comment with such kind words. I am encouraged to continue with these sound trips, to see where else I can go and have people join me.

I'm learning the art of programming this sonic beast. It truly is a awesome synth.

The volume was my main concern followed by the drone, but it's been good to share this mix with friends.

Take care.

I am Back
You are back and as usual you have crafted another gem (it even has a, dare I say it, a beat). I always await your musicical and sonic experiments with much excitment.

Hi Martin..........
My enthusiasm wained a little for a few days. I was also trying to set up my studio (again) in my spare bedroom, and so I've just been sitting in there and listening to classical music on the digital radio. Lost in this ambience I was off and away elsewhere, rambling in the realms of nature with Beethoven and the intimate surrounding of the parlour with Chopin.

The beat seems to appear a little more in my later pieces. I just go with the flow of whatever I'm doing at the time, so we'll see/hear what happens next, as it happens.

On landing again, this was my first 'new' piece. There is also a 20 minute variation that I'll put a link to, in the music description at the top of this page.

Take care.

You know
I love what you're doing... And it's always a pleasure to listen on your work.
This is little different, but still with your great ambient touch that you are so good at.

Take care

Hi Kenta........
I hope you and your good lady enjoyed your break. Thanks for stopping by on your return.

You are correct. It is a slight departure from my 'norm' but I have to break out of my comfort zone every now and again.

As I said to Martin, above, there will be a link to a 20 minute variation of this piece in the description above, in a few hours. I hope that you listen to it and don't become bored.

Take care.

You're right about this being something different. I would not have IDed this one as a Reinholt. Classic drone element in the midrange is wonderfully insistent. Not much bass on this one. Gives a different and more open flavor. The volume didn't overpower through my headphones, but I'm probably going deaf. The string patterns were very catchy. Nice work.

Hi Duane......
It was the string sounds that sold it for me. There are some really spectacular free presets available in the KVR forum for U-he products. I think that I have all sets now and I'm playing with them and experimenting with my own soundshapes too. (If you can't find them let me know and I'll send you a link).

The drone had me in a bit of a quandary but I decided to upload it to see what others thought. I'm very glad that I did!!

A long version will be available via a link in the description above, in a short while.

I seriously hope that you're not going deaf!! I can't think of anything worse for a musician.

Thanks for all your kind thoughts.

Take care.

Hi Daniel.......
I hope that the festival went OK for you, or is going OK if it's still ongoing. Your 'Cry Me a River' was brilliant. I love that piece of music.

This, as you may have gathered, is a slight detour into more formal music, but still based on an algorithm. We'll see/hear what comes out of the melting pot next.......

I'm glad you enjoyed the drone. This was my biggest worry as far as the whole piece was concerned.

Take care.
