Description
Another fairly old piece, started about two years ago, which may have been one of the earliest of my synth/classical instrument experiments. Basically analog and digital synth tracks with a doubled cello track.

In keeping with the usual aquatic titles and images which seem to be attached to many of these ambient pieces, I have changed the original, boring title I had (Ambient Onze) to something reflecting this image by Kevin Raskoff, one of many strange and beautiful creatures brought to our attention by the Census of Marine Life 2010, which identified an incredible number of new species; neighbours, as it were, we never knew we had ;-) For some reason I put the French number for eleven, which is the tune's series number, in the original title, and kept it here in English. Sounds like it should be a children's song.

This revised version is thanks to davajonah who reminded me that I forgot to turn up the volume (as much as I can) before posting ;-)

Well Considered Richard
I was in Nassau, an aquarium there sports a huge tank of Jfish. Your effort here recalls the dancing fish... thanks.

all
' am one who digs cello stuff . . .
good to see new species on earth . . . both which are simply newly discovered . . . and those which are actually new species . . . in light of so many becoming extinct.
your music here is satisfying -
serene and healing -
as in all is well.
those do resemble microscopic paramecium cilia extentions -
connecting to the outside world.
getting around.

What a perfectly relaxing composition!
Eleven jellyfish, they
moved over the ocean depth.
Creeping, steadily creeping,
Seeking, actively seeking,
A number twelve of their kind
Because they had twelve flashlights.
And they could each hold only one.

Interesting piece Richard
There are, in all likelihood more undiscovered species in the world than there are ones we know of, and that gives me hope.
I can't help but wonder, if we left Earth and came back in a billion years, what the dominant species would be then, I have my doubts about whether man would still be here in any recognizable form, if at all, but Earth and all the teaming life forms would still be here. And there would be a different order to things, and who knows, maybe a better one.

Soothing, beautiful music Richard. Thanks you for the inspiration my friend, I love it.

Beautiful
Great work Richard, you also found an interesting and suitable subject.

I also found hard to find a subject or even a name to the instrumentals I was doing a while ago, I was ending up calling them 1, 2, 3, etc :-)

This was a very enjoyable listen.

Very nice bit of ambient here. Nothing happening, yet ever evolving. I think it's indeed more a jellyfish than an ozone.

Perfect. Geek that I am, I find nothing as interesting as the jellyfish when I visit aquariums (aquaria?). I think you've captured their elegant and mysterious nature with this beautiful piece of ambient.
