Dark ambient "uneasy listening" from my new Bandcamp release, 11 Spells. Software and Eurorack synthesizers.

I enjoyed that - sinister textures and asymmetry.

I really enjoyed this. However, I never get why some things are labeled Dark. Never seems dark to me. Maybe my default is darker than most? Who knows. I know I generally enjoy things labelled as such.

I like this, and I thank this recent post for directing me to it.

I'm glad stuff like this gets labelled as "Dark", or anyway that it gets some kind of label beyond just being "ambient". Because the vast majority of so-called ambient music I come across is just way too nice, lacking any sense of mystery or strangeness, which is generally what I want from my ambient -- a soundtrack that speaks to the mystery and strangeness of every day life.

Nice is okay in measured amounts. But too much just ends up feeling like eating nothing but dessert. It's not good for me.
