Description
This mix is one of the few that I did a video to but there are copyright restrictions to me uploading it onto Youtube. Must look into that. Anyway the soundscape is ALL mine so no restrictions there.

It's a little bit Experimental and also a tiny bit melodic, but please don't hold that against me. I've been watching movies such as Limitless and Battle: Los Angeles and reading SciFi books till the cows come home as well as playing with my Fuji X100, hence not much music from me. Sort of holiday mode........

Hi Charlie....

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.

Sweet ambient mix
With just the right amount of "edge" to the sweetness. And nah, I'd say this is pretty ambient, even if the genre is somewhat mistreated, and not only by me ;-)

Should be interesting to see the movie, if you manage to get it on air eventually.

Thanks and take care,
Henke

Hi Henke....
I didn't know if I should say this was Ambient or Electronic, so I went with Ambient. Maybe I picked wrong.

The movie is all computr generated graphics but the site says that the images can't be made public. I'll check this out further and see exactly what they mean.

Take care.

so whats with this
you tube licensing deal...i have experienced 'warnings' too when posting videos with original material
i think it has something to do with music that has similar titles...
anyway....all that aside...this is a wonderfully atmospheric piece....certainly very deserving of a visual accompaniment

Hi Bryn.....
I believe that the Soundspectrum website says, somewhere, that the produced videos can't be shown publically so I'm trying to find out what that is all about and how it affeects non-profit viewing. I'll let you know.

I seem to be going towards Abstract Ambient Electronica but who knows what my next mix will sound like. We'll see/hear.

Take care.

Bloody nuisance. I too would be interested in seeing visuals to accompany this soundscape. Very interesting and eerie atmosphere you've created here. And you've been playing with a Fuji X100 too! Fine piece of kit, by all accounts. Sadly, out of my price range!

Hi Dave......
The sounds are a tad too weird, even for me. That's why I had to put in some semblance of melody. I don't really like where my musical ideas are taking me but we'll see what comes out of the wash next.

The Fuji X100 is amazing!!! I've not learned how to make decent tunes with it yet but some of the sounds it has are brilliant. The images aren't too bad either.

Take care.

Mix and Match
Interesting soundscape. Sort of sharp, metallic-sounding to me. I like the background "space". I thought Fuji X100 was a soft synth at first, now I know better.

Hi aRcTip....
The soundscape was too strange, even for me, so I put in the melodic element. This seemed to make it a good deal more easy to listen too.

The camera is a brilliant piece of kit.

Take care.

Intense, even without low frequencies. Horror movie. Supernatural fear. Now I'm curious about the video. I hope that works out. I've seen those movies, also. Try "Inception." That will blow your mind.

Hi Duane....
I have seen 'Inception' and it is another great movie. I especially enjoyed the philosophical aspects of the 'Why' to the story line.

The mix is just another detour from proper Ambient. My dad would say 'Why don't you play proper music instead of that crap'!! We'll see.

Take care.

A very sonorous and compelling journey this one is. It's great to read that your inspiration for these pieces stems from your rediscovery of the SciFi genre. To me that is inspirational in itself.

Minds eye: This piece has tension like anticipation of the terror that is unfolding. Unknown species going about their strange routines as an unsuspecting human peeks over a piece of machinery uncovering a diabolical plan :)

Well done! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Patty......
Thanks for stopping by. Always good to read your thoughtful comments. Yes, the SciFi bug has well and truly bit again. Music takes third place behind reading and photography for now.

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]
