Cornucopia

This is my first ambient track (that I know of).
It came along because Steph makes an ambient song now, and I also wanted to try, but didn´t think I could do it. So Steph told me to drop my insecure skill-nonsense-discouraging-crap-talk and make myself useful (He said it nicer!).
Derrti encouraged me too, and I even got a couple of hearts on SC, which I of course appreciate. angel
So here it is: https://soundcloud.com/squirrelonmars/cornucopia
(It didn´t show in the SC-field, maybe it´s too big (111Mb)?)

Nah, the size doesn't matter ;).
I really like this one Brtt and that's why I reposted it. Tell you what, I'm in the middle of a really special project now but when that is done I'm open for a collab if you're interested? I'm thinking about some ambient stuff with a Scandinavian though, what do you think about that?

Splendid, so I have no real

Splendid, so I have no real issue reading Norwegian but how is your Swedish? Would it be ok for you if we do this in our own languages? I'll contact you when I'm ready to start this :)

Is the pad sound that plays

Is the pad sound that plays for 30 seconds in the beginning a preset from here? It's the kind of sound that has the melodic potential.

Maybe it was Ambient Stack1. I couldn't find it through the search though. What is the tag?

Yes, it was ´ambient stack1´,

Yes, it was ´ambient stack1´, did you make it, Phorsion? I really enjoyed it! I don´t know how I got it, I download so much from here, you know - when people are giving advises. I also searched for it yesterday, to give credit to the creator, but no luck.

That ambient sound reminds me

That ambient sound reminds me so much of... Oh. I forgot I got pads too. Anyway...

There was also this one percussive loop sound that sounds like the one from user Josh L's collab with me Chaos Protocol.

Maybe Josh knows.

Nice, Britt!

I'm glad to be your encouragement or kick-in-the-ass or whatever, if it makes things like this happen.

Yeah, love this, great use of

Yeah, love this, great use of sounds and fx, taking us to a slightly oriental soundscape and the 5 minutes seemed to flow effortlessly, in fact thought when it got to the last quarter it could have morphed into something else, great creativity Britt

Hi Britt,

Hi Britt,

I had already liked this on SC but wanted to comment here, too.  This has a really nice touch, not so ambient that you fall asleep, introducing new, interesting sounds as it moves along.  There is no reason you shouldn't continue working in this genre and keep exploring.

It was on my to-do list to take another try at ambient and you've encouraged me to get going.

This is great. Totally unique

This is great. Totally unique with tiny hints of FSOL trickling through. Never feel insecure again. This would sit well in a moody Scan thriller

@JHSound; This is a nice

@JHSound; This is a nice feedback, because it shows that supporting each other is contageous! nd of course, I´m glad you liked it.
Same to you @Alexei, thanks a lot. I had to google FSOL (Future Sound of London).. Got to check that one out. :)
@Wellsley Haha! So you noticed.. That´s the part where it almost turned into a c&w ballad, so I had to stop it. laugh
@Andy, you showed me some interesting tricks with fx earler this year, and I used some of it on this!
Thank you all for support and for listening. It makes it so much less scary to explore this kind of music. heart

What's scary? Just make

What's scary? Just make something - the worst that can happen is that you don't like what you come up with. But what you do about that is, you make another something and try to do better.
And from hearing this, and I don't think I'm alone in thinking this, you needn't worry.
