Inventive and raw ambient track. With a metronomical rhythm created from organic and percussive tones enhanced by mechanical sounds, a sense of tonality comes from the minimalist piano adding the slightest of bass feels and harmony. Somber and pensive in atmosphere, with a lulling calmness in amongst the tension, as the title suggests, time ticks on, and the piece reflects a hypnotic and hollow sounding illusion of an ever present constant. Intriguingly captivating for what is essentially a soundscape.
Slow building, cinematic orchestral piece. Immediately dramatic and intense, through single repeated piano notes and suspenseful violin harmonics, there's an ethnic edge in the instrumentation merging with strings and oboe as the piece turns darker with rich bass and dissonant textures. Ambient and brooding throughout with a tragic, heroic feel to the second half due to a sweeping string and brass melody accompanied by added timpani and rhythm, it remains a calm yet slightly unsettling piece with outstanding tension.
Orchestral (hybrid) track, featuring piano, strings, brass and FX. A lulling, yet dissonant piano theme takes centre stage, accompanied by legato violins and various chilling percussive effects to a sharp climax, before returning to the more sedate, yet unsettling motif. Edgy and intense, with an unresolved ending.
Experimental free flowing piano piece, melodically playing to rhythmically mimic the random falling of water droplets. Soulful, gentle and relaxing, the mood is enhanced by subtle pads, rain and droplet sounds, gradually building to a short, sweeping climax. A very intimate, and atmospheric soundscape.
Deeply atmospheric, ambient track. Soaked in reverb for a spacey and dreamlike feel, it features clean electric guitar melodies and broken chords over synth pads and piano. A light percussive rhythm lends a fluidity and forward movement and helps build a slight intensity, creating a change in dynamics and feeding the listener a vibe of wonder and mysticism. Cinematic and very, very pensive.
'Epic' isn't always reserved for heroic battle music. To prove the point, here is an atmospheric piano based track that manages to build it's 'epicness' through inspirational chord progressions and dramatic instrumentation. And plenty of reverb. With an airy background shimmer, bright piano leads us to clean electric guitar to transport us to a bold, dreamlike state of uplifting calm, blooming into a full, rich wave of invigorating sensation with prominent lush strings. No booming percussion, no fast ostinato, just a beautifully cinematic flight into the clouds.
