A slow glide through an industrial wasteland

More soundtracks for weird scenes.

Hi there doc. You've got some nice elements in this here soundscape, for sure, and it is indeed cinematic. Speaking of which, I'm reminded a little of some of the music Wendy Carlos made for The Shining. May I offer one bit of critique? I think you could stand to limit your ideas/sounds a bit, in order to give a piece like this more focus. I guess I'd prefer it as something a bit more minimal: less notes, less events, but milking them more, you know what I mean? Anyway, though, it's very nice.

Love the reverberated hits/samples that resonate in the background. This is total mood music... I feel all weird now, so, well done.

FJAM, I agree, particularly in the first half. I tend make stuff procedurally, where patterns are set up and the altered over time, so controlling that at any given instant can be problematic. I do want to create effective music in the end, though, so control is something I need to learn.

Thanks for the feed back :)

It feels like I'm in the hull of a ship, listening to all the strange underwater noises coming in through the walls. (Not that I've actually been in the hull of a ship.)

Interesting stuff. I like the "hull of a ship" image, I get a similar feeling. Part of me wishes that a simple, almost classical melody would emerge from these sounds.

Oddly enough, my original idea for a description was something along the lines of "imagine yourself lying in the hull of a small boat as you float slowly through an industrial area that's being bombed", but I couldn't think of a nice, neat way to put it.
