The Ectoplasm Party



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

This is just another auditory musing. Going nowhere but getting there in a round about way. It was earlier called 'The Spooks Ectoplasm Party' but I shortened it.

There are two definite rhythms interplaying with each other and creating sub rhythms within these rhythms.

Spooks, eh?
Can't help thinking of cold frosty caves of ice and stalagmites, myself :) Cool (!) sounds and good mix here, Paul!

Hi aRcTip......
If you're thinking of those things whilst listening, don't forget to get wrapped up in some warm clothes. It's chilly in those places....Spooks is what first came to my mind as I evolved the mix. Originally it was just the back wash of fairly stock Ambient but I added a sparkly layer and 'Spooks' jumped out at me.

Take care.

Cave Party
Sounds like a maze by the description. Which it is. Which I like. Floating and tingling, dark and winding.
Reinholt56 said 2245 days ago (October 25th, 2011)
Hi Tracy.....
Floating is good. That's my idea of Ambient. Preferably with a space suit on and above the earth's atmosphere, but you gotta take what you can get, caves, spelunking, adrenalin rush, chills, tingling, dark and winding.

All of the above.

Take care.

Haha! Sounds really cool Paul, good mix. It also sounds like Omnisphere at work, but you haven't mentioned it, so I guess not. One for the upcoming Halloween. I may play this to my kids - scare the hell out of them! }:-)

Hi Dave.....
It isn't Omnisphere. I had to go check what I did and it was the following soft synths: Audjoo_Helix, 2 x UltraAnalog, Aftershock Delay, Fabfilter Timeless 2, Stereo Touch and ReverberateCM. I don't use UltraAnalog or Audjoo_Helix very often. The rest is just stereo spacing and 'the 'Verb''.

I hope the kids don't have nightmares......

Take care.

and invigorating stuff.

Really held my interest, though, as you say yourself, holds many potential meanings.

Don't know how you came up with all those effects. Sounds great to me, though disquieting.

Hi Marc......
The way I try and structure my pieces is either to give them a very narrow description/sound so it is true to the title. Others, such as this mix, are wider in scope and so allow the listener to imagine what ever they want as they listen. There is no wrong idea for the soundscape. Each to their own.

See comment to Dave for some information on how I got the sounds.

Take care.

Slow, slimy, oozing ectoplasm
making its way through the dark, dripping maze of subterranean sewers. Lovely!

Hope to see you at the forthcoming Space Race Challenge.

Hi Richard.....
I'm scared listening to this with your description in mind although I know exactly what you mean. Don't forget the spare batteries for the torch.....

I'm almost certainly not doing the SRC 2011 as most of my uploads are in this category so it's nothing different.

Take care.

I'm in for the cave
imagery for this piece. Suppose I haven't had too much experience of ectoplasm, and I'm not really a party person either ;-) When we visited England in the summer of 2010 we went to one of these splendid caves (which I'm afraid I can't remember the name of, very annoying). The guide told us of some villain that used to live in the caves long ago, at least three weeks ago, so no worries. I wonder, maybe that was about some spooky business... Anyway, a nice - if a bit cold - and sparkly mix which I enjoyed a lot. Thanks!

Take care,

Hi Henke....
We have caves near here (Castleton in Derbyshire) where Blue John is mined, a beautiful crystal and world famous.

I'm with you though on not being a party person. Don't mind seeing them in movies but not first hand.

Take care.

Henke said 2240 days ago (October 29th, 2011)
Found it
It was not too far away from Derby. But the town was Buxton and the cave Poole's Cavern. I could spot the actual parking place we used for the car both in town and by the cavern on Google Maps :-) (And yes, better on movies ;-) /H

Well, I HAVE had an ectoplasmic experience. I get the cave vie too. It's the drips and the big room sound. In fact, the sound is HUGE. And very insistent, with classic R56 changes. Coooooool. Brrrrrr. I need a coat.

Hi Duane.....
I knew I'd read the word insistent but couldn't remember where. It was on the tip of my tongue when I just wrote the description of my latest upload. I then came here to reply to comments and the word is in front of me.

It would be interesting to hear about your ectoplasmic experience. I've had many and varied experiences where there was no scientific explanation for them....and I wasn't drunk or on drugs at the time.

Take care.

Where can one go if one is always here?
I love the frosty and wet wanderings. It is a fun exploration of the evolving tones - leaving the space to notice fully their details from many perspectives yet without any point or strategy in doing so.

Enjoyed this Paul!

Hi Doug.....
Your words sound like a description of my life at times, with the 'from many perspectives yet without any point or strategy in doing so'. Perfect.

Glad you enjoyed this one.

Take care.
