Relative Calm After The Storm (An Ambient Drone Mix)

Description
This soundscape is a result of listening to lots of Tangerine Dream early stuff over the last few days. The crap, with the better stuff coming along later. The hardware used becoming better album by album, as far as I think, anyway.

This mix was around two minutes longer and this cut portion was the 'storm' part, that I felt was too intense and far too drone-like. I also edited in both a fade-in and a fade-out, for contrast and movement.

Calm, and yet....
Associative memory is an interesting phenomenon. This has an intensity in the early sounds that is quite surprising - a bit like a slow turning drill bit. your 'relative' title made me smile since any description is inherently relative.

The bass entry at 1:57 is very cool and is not something I often hear in your work (or at least the ones I catch). Entries or transitions occur but not with such clarity and energy as that one.

Our sensitivity to the space of hearing and ability to concoct meaning from what we experience is quite marvellous. There is so much detail in your work, but it needs the listener's attention to unfold it. You are clearly one patient fellow to conceive of this work.

The slow fade seems to make all that is happening at the time a fade is noticed take on a dreamy not-quite-present quality. Did I really hear that or is it only a memory?....

Cheers Paul,
Doug

Marvelous patience
What Doug said...along with your characteristic patience in getting from HERE to THERE. You always take your time, Paul, and this soundscape does not disappoint in laying out an exposition and then letting the atmosphere just grow in gradual layers, calmly yet surely. I am always transported to another world with your creations. This is a wonderful addition to your growing list of unique compositions.

Relatively speaking
Nice sustained effort. Yes, it is relatively calm, but it is not without its tensions.
