NGC 6744 (The Milky Way's Twin Mix)



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

This mix is to celebrate our galaxy having a 'twin', NGC 6744, photographed by EOS in Chile.

The mix has one stereo track but the mix had a touch of compression added as well as the mid's boosted somewhat. The reverb was added at two stages in the mixing process and the other effect is what I would have used on a guitar input, had I had one.

All in all the mix is done slightly different as I wanted to try and have varied sounds coming in and out of the general Ambient drone. I only mix/master on £50.00 headphones so I don't know if this has worked as I thought it might. The lower the volume, the less 'mush' is all I can suggest.

You should be doing underscore work for ominous sci-fi movies, man... :) You get such depth out of simplicity... If you close your eyes, you sort of imagine the hugeness of space and time, and how small we are. Great journey!

Hi Phil....
Thank you for the kind thoughts. Simplicity is a big thing with me. My father said, once, that everything successful in the music business was simple in format or design. It's my philosophy too. (Thanks Dad).

I'm working on putting together some videos to accompany my music. There is a video available on Youtube, completed by Drakonis with my Cosmic Symphony as the soundscape.

Take care.

It has all your usual trademarks. I'd recognise your music anywhere, morphing sweeps, huge swells, lovely bits of feedback [intentional or otherwise!] Fabulous work.
You should invest in some good monitors you know. Makes a big difference when you mix. But this sounds good to my old ears anyway.

Hi Dave....
To me the pieces seems a bit too stereotyped. I'm looking to change what I do or at least morph it enough to be almost completely different. I would invest in monitors but the flat I live in has a family above me with a little baby and I don't want to be a bad neighbour. Maybe one day I'll have some. Meanwhile I just bought another toy (a mobile phone) and their was a pair of headphones free with it, so my next piece will be mixed through those. Lets see/hear if it's any different.

Take care.

I think all of your mixes are done to perfection. I love the adventures you take us on, just fascinating!

Hi Dani...
You are so kind with your comments. I enjoys the thought that others have maybe been on the same or a similar journey to me whilst listening. Sometimes I lose myself in these mixes as I listen to them six or seven times in a row whilst ironing the major blips out of them. I come round by listening to a Beethoven symphony. That brings me back.

Take care.

discrete light years between chords
as we step from star to star, the temperature (and thus the color) of the cosmic radiation sensor change, splashing patterns across the heads-up display in the cockpit. the galaxies visited are real, however the feeling is always surreal. the variety of things in the universe is staggering. your music brings this to light.

Hi Eduard....
Your comments always colour up my soundscapes in a very poetic and profound way. I thank you for helping others as well as myself experience more sights/sites whilst on the journey.

Take care.
