Planck's Constant

Description
This is the second in a set of five I'm trying to do, the first being Schrodinger's Cat. All variations on a theme, so to speak. This one has 14 tracks: 9 a variety of Albino and Zebra soft synths, and 5 percussion. Not really ambient, but once again I'm at a loss about how to categorise this tune.

Have a listen, it may grow on you like it did with me as I was making it!

Very sweet sounds here
and the percussive elements are some of them. Even if they do represent some kind of pulse in this piece, they also add to the general soundscape. The development in the piece is perhaps somewhat limited too as in "real" ambient and as would be expected of a song with Constant in its title. For all its 5.30 minutes it does not loose interest, though, because of all the stuff going on - it doesn't feel long. Very well done again, Dave.

So what's next: Heisenberg or Stigler or even Fermat... (Actually this is not my area of expertise, but Wikipedia is your friend ;-) Looking forward to it while listening to this one on repeat...

Take care.

Thanks Henke!
Originally, I was not going to have any percussion, but this piece, as I was working on it, seemed to be asking for some. So in it went!

Next up, btw, is Avagadro's Number, then Medel's Ratio and finally, Pavlov's Dogs. It was my son's suggestion [he's a scientist] to use a scientific theme. I thought it was a good idea.

Much appreciate your stopping by and listening. Thank you. :-)

I love the feel of this song. I think you could also add a female voice to it.

Great stuff!

Thank you.
Mystic eh? That's great actually - just what I wanted. These scientific types surely are mystics! As for a female voice, yes, that would be brilliant. If I could find someone to do it!

Thanks again, appreciate your comments.

its funny..
I really enjoy listening to the people at mac jams that have been there longer than me. I figure that these are the persons that know about writing and production more than me. I wasnt let down on this song. Just a very good write and production!!!

Thanks!
But really, I'm just an amateur you know. I twiddle the knobs until I think it sound right, without much of an idea of what I'm doing. I'll take you compliments though!

Thanks again - appreciated.

note to self
I put this on while I was making supper and getting ready to go out..and nearly got so chilled out I nearly gave up any idea of doing anything and just sitting on the sofa and listening to this lovely piece of music.
I'll download it and listen to it when I'm in the right space for it...but it's a great piece of music and really enjoyed
cheers

Kind of you sir.
Don't get too chilled though. You'll never get out. Like me for three solid days putting this together. My wife complains...

Thanks again. :-)

avogadro is missing
perhaps this is music traveling in brownian motion as it walks the planck? it is repetitive, however it is unpredictable. patterns morph over time. it is not constant. music causes movement. it is good. 0x0

I like the percussion
you've added in this one Dave and though it's so sharp and clear it doesn't take away from the beautiful calmness and serenity of the melodies.... just helps it all move along nicely..... love those warm bell like synth sounds always, cheers M

Percussion is
very simple. It seemed to be right though, so in it went.

Thanks once again Mo. Do appreciate your comments.

Thanks for sharing. Tasty percussion, it just smolders along the way. Ditto for the synth layering, there is some development but doesn't rise to the level of ear candy.
I agree, a female vocal would humanize this and solve the "ear candy" deficiency. Something ala Ms. U from Star Trek comes to mind, maybe warming this up would bring out the hidden flavors...

Ear Candy
Yes. You may be right. I sort of like the ambient[ish] nature of the track, so I wouldn't want TOO much vox, so to speak. Some understated loo loo lah lahs might do the trick. But as there are no ladies who have either made comments, or volunteered their services, I suppose I'll have to leave it as it is!

Thanks for listening and your kind comments. :-)

Hi Dave......
Quite simply wonderful........

I have listening to this piece every day since you uploaded it, many times. I never tire of listening to it.

It's far, far bigger that Planck ever imagined!!!

Take care.

The
percussion ticks off time like the seconds before a sunrise when darkness is transformed to color. You explore sounds and echoes of sounds so I can almost still hear music even after the piece is ended.
