@Misael.K - Yes it's 14 minutes, does that surprise you? I really am tempted to do 20 minutes for one of the rounds.

@JH Sounds - It does? The title is what it is. I guess people have connotations....

@NickC - Dude that made me chuckle so hard. It's true, i do go the extra mile, length wise haha.

@CotMM - What's that Nike saying or something? Just do it? Well whatever it is, just do it lol. An hour's long ambient track would be cool.

@Arcana - Or it could be a some science fiction movie who knows.

@JH Sounds - Lol i think the Partybot is legit scared of me and my track lengths.

@InvisibleObserver - I did, it was called ThaTaskmasta. I originally used it for a 2hts prank, many rounds ago. Now i just use it for second submissions if needed.

@NickC - What's interesting, is that this is one long piano roll note, therefore it's more of a drone than a loop, largely because i needed the attack and the sustain. It also made listening to the track a nightmare, because it cuts off in the middle, only works at the start of the track.

@CotMM - Cool, new music to check out!

@JH Sounds - Nah Kid A is more um...Aphexy. Mine is similar to i guess...Trent Reznor? Or at least his Ghosts album.

@Arcana - You know, i do actually sweat a bit when sharing these kinds of tracks, because i worry you guys don't have the patience to listen to 14 minutes of music, and I'm just going too far. I do it, mainly because i don't feel satisfied with this kind of music, for only 2 minutes, it doesn't feel like it's developed enough. I mean i don't think i've seen a dark ambient piece lasting only a minute. Oh well.

@Misael.K - It mainly requires a set of fresh ears, who can understand the goal one's artist is trying to achieve. That and well...patience. Glad you liked it.

@JH Sounds - Haha you guys come up with the wackiest of comparisons. Water Walk, requires a live audience, a series of house hold appliances, and a straight face. Mine is a very long dark ambient track.

@Atmospherium - Wow i really felt this comment, thank you. It does indeed have some balance lol.

@JH Sounds - If you don't mind, can you tell me which round that was? I wanna listen to your 45 seconds of fame. And yes, i really am interested.

@Atmospherium - Piano? Is this about someone else?

@JH Sounds - "I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock. The porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revelation" - WHO ARE YOUUUUU....

@InvisibleObserver - To be fair, what i've really given you is 14 minutes of hell....

@Arcana - Preheat the oven to 400 degrees overload lol.

@InvisibleObserver - Not gonna lie, you guys have pretty good intelligence, I'm learning a lot when i read the comments.

@JH Sounds - In the Alternate Universe there are cookies!

@InvisibleObserver - Daaam 4-5 months? Just for the Photos!?

@Misael.K/JH Sounds - Yeah i made sure Derrick the DAW behaved this week lol.

@NickC - I believe it's just a sine wave with the filters down, and the vibrato up slightly.

@Arcana - You know i might record myself one day. It will have to be quiet, with no talking though, because it's 2am, and people are asleep.

@Atmospherium - Glad your satisfied. Can i interest you in dessert?

@Arcana - I'm not worthy!? Dude I'm an outsider compared to you lot lol.

@Atmospherium - Oh i think i see what you mean now, they're not piano plonks, that's a riser from a sample pack.

@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words! Had to reply to a lot of you...

Now then....

TheVideoGamer - This track is a 14 minute dark ambient track, I'm sure my replies makes this clear. I did this because the first image of the two, was very dark, and gave me the idea of a man standing behind you, like you see in a horror movie, almost like he's about to kill you or something. That was in my mind, so i ran with it. I mostly layered up 4-5 synth sounds to create the drone, while occasional sound effects and automation comes in to enhance it, and keep it from being basic. The key with this track is gradual developments. Nothing is too sudden, majority of it slowly creeps in. I like the simplicity here, it's great.

DrumJ8 - Cool grooves...

thesocialcontract - Wow these are some good layers of sound. Really great melody too. Definitely feels like a start of something awesome. Good job!

cotmm68030 - Wow the space is perfect, i love the dynamics in the synths. I also really like the vocals too, very atmospheric with some cool effects. Nothing bad here, well done!

A2Z - Really well mixed. The chord choices were on point. Loved how it flows too, just a really nice experience. Well done!

DarkShadow - Is this what we call the live piano version? haha....

DDRKirby(ISQ) - Woah how the hell is this made in an hour. This is beautiful (Right down to the chord choices). The mix is superb!! Beyond amazing!

obScene - Everything is clustered, so it made for a quite heavy consistent listen. On the bright-side though, that melody is speaking volumes, definitely a good addition, oh and i liked the drums too. Good job!

Suzumebachi - Can i be awful and say, you make some really dank tunes with only one arm? This was a really nice atmosphere, i liked it a lot. Well done!

starla - Everything about the track, from the idea to the chords were really nice, however it feels like an intro to a track. I think i need a dank beat to go with this nice idea. Good job!

Arcana - Yay i can hear this one without adjusting volume! Nice one! Love the idea here, great melodic ideas. Needs finesse to make it perfect, but as usual you can only do so much in a hour. Good job!

NickC - Now the mix itself is pretty awesome and all, but i mainly dig it for the really beautiful and rich harmony (And of course the melody). Love them major 7th's man. Incredible dude!

Nukage - Not gonna say much, it's the nukage i always love. Especially satisfying minimal dubs. Well done!

Atmospherium - What would i call this? Industrial Trap? It's very unique in the style, but with some familiarity. Loved this a lot, well done!

Misael.K - This sounds like one of them Vocaloid programs, which i think it is. Nothing wrong with that, but there are parts where it's weirdly synthesized, and i find it a little off putting. Rest was really nice though, great chords. Good job!

InvisibleObserver - Feels like a more abstract/glichy variant of Nukage lol. That's a good thing, this was a great track, with a nice punchy mix. Well done!

ethansight - Ok seriously dude you made a really good bop. The chords were incredible housey and funky, and works with the sick bassline. This is just amazing, from start to finish. Incredible dude!

Top 3 - DDRKirby(ISQ), Ethansight, NickC
