iconDARK - Abandon
Genre: Dark Ambient / Drone

About the Song:
This was an attempt to re-create the magic of "Delumination" without being quite as minimal. I dont think I got there, but this is still a strong dark ambient track in its own right. The distortion at the start lets you know right away that something isnt right... that you`re probably in for an unpleasant surprise. The fact that the distortion fades and returns at regular intervals (hopefully) builds tension until... well... something unexpected happens. Most of the background noise is just delay and reverb triggered by the strings which are, by the way, NOT playing the same chord progression over and over again. There are subtle differences each time the progression loops, so you never hear exactly the same thing twice, although the distortion may hide that fact.

Exactly what this soundscape is intended to portray is an exercise for the listener. It means what it means to you, regardless what what I had in mind at the time.

Soothing thing, although it is a little different from your darker sound, but you can still recognize the hand of the creator. Great track, I was also reminded of the sounds of the planets and space objects that are made from the signal sent by reflective lasers into space. The bells create a mystical touch and give spice to the track. Great job!
