Celestial Mechanics #2



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

This mix is from a series that I'm currently working on, as variations on a theme, more so than any two of my already uploaded mixes. What I mean is that the constraints of how I produce these latest pieces is that the presets stay the same but the effects differ, thus producing both noticeable similarities and differences. I'm putting #2 up first as the original theme really should go last in the series, to show how the others have changed, but without taking anything away from them as individual pieces. I hope.

It's over 10 minutes in duration.

As always your thoughts would be welcome.

Hi HB.......
I know what you mean but my piece went this way pretty much to plan. In meditation-type music you want sameness not changes, or your concentration may lapse, depending on how deep you are into the practise.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.

An instant fav
but with that said I kind of agree with the hackneybloke that a bit more variation could be nice for a 10 minute piece, if you're listening actively. Still, it is kind of meditative and works well for meditative purposes. Nice fade out too! :-)

Take care.

Hi Henke......
Your second sentence was all I intended with this piece. Think minimalism and you are there.

Take care.

And the best way is have a look at your stuff.
Nice dream away song, love it, thanks for this one.

Hi Kenta.....
I hope you see light at the end of your tunnel. You deserve it my friend.

Glad I could have been of some service with my music.

Take care.

One of my favorite subjects. I'm glad it didn't go more places, Paul. Never tamper with perfection. One of the purest space ambient pieces I've heard, and I think it's magnificent. I applaud your courage to post a non-developing piece. Transcendent.

Hi Duane.......
I'd forgotten about your 'day job', so yes the subject matter would be appropriate for you. I'm so happy that you rated this mix in the way you did. I had my own doubts as it was a slight departure from my usual stuff, in some quite obvious ways. There are more on their way..... I am enjoying making these technical changes in the way I do things...

Take care.

Yes, I agree that this works amazingly well as a meditative piece, quietly shifting in the background. I'm personally always going for melodic elements, but you have created here the nearly-perfect space number and I wouldn't suggest messing with it a bit. There is peace and a subtle grace that seeps through every note of this and it would not be enhanced by anything suggesting a theme, motif, or full melody. Frankly, I think this is maybe your finest composition to date, and that's hard to say because you've written some really superb things.

Hi Paul......
Wow. Thank you for the very kind comments you have made about this piece. Knowing about the art of meditation, in many of its forms, I know what suits me when I 'go within', so I agree with you about its meditative aspects. I hope to do more in this particular vein over the next little while.

Once again, thank you for you very kind thoughts.

Take care.

This is very rich
I think for me there is almost too much going on if I were to meditate to it. How about that? :o) As listening piece I think it's brilliant - sparkly, chromatic, shimmery, gossamer thin in places, uplifting, and so fulfilling. I agree with Paul, in that if it is not your best post, it is certainly one of the top ones.

Nice work. Really nice work.

Thanks Paul,

Hi Doug.....
I know what you mean about the meditative aspect. I cannot do meditation to some music-backed tracks as I'm following the music and not concentrating on the words. To me, meditation music has to be almost atonal or repetative to induce either trance (repetative) or not to be off-putting to the words (atonal).

The music element of this track is a different tack. Away from my more normal stuff, into uncharted (for me) territory. i'm enjoying the break from daily composition work whilst still learning.

Take care.

I'm currently busy with getting my life back on some sort of track and hope to get into the music making business again in the near future, with a planned third net album 'Karma of Love' that will be an Immersive Ambient set of tracks. This should be... [see more]
