[Ambient] Mysta Fx - Rhodes Melochony (Nothing to hear here)
 


Just me meandering...rough and unkempt, but puts me to sleep!

How in the hell am I supposed to dance to this? :P

The distortion at 4:13 sounds more accidental than intentional - it doesn't fit since there isn't anything like that anywhere else. If you wanted to distort though, there's plenty of room to add it, but maybe gradually?
Again, the distortion at 6:30, I do like that you change it up here - maybe if that wasn't just right at the end of the song. Perhaps a phrase of something similar earlier or whatnot, otherwise it's just like oh here, it's different right before the ending.

I don't know that you are actually going back to work on this one or anything, but thanks for sharing.

Lol everything is incidental ...nothing to hear here 😎 thanks for listening though.
The distortion is due to an issue with plugin and the velocity of the Rhodes signal being hotter than the rest of the track .

FWIW Updated and got rid of that nasty oversaturated distortion about half way through.

Still meandering....

I'm digging this. It reminds me of Vangelis jamming out. It does meander, but that's part of its charm. It would be neat if it lured you in with its meandering and then an accompaniment of some subtle sustained synth slowly ebbed into the piece. Then it could take on a more distinct structure. Then the synth could exit and the rhodes meanders off again.

I like the vibe overall. Very cool!

Privileged for your first post. Thank you. Yep been playing around with some Diva to pin it down. It will come.

It tends to lose the listener in the second half, I'm afraid, as it becomes clear that the track fumbles around aimlessly.
First half is sweet, pondering and immersive! :)

Thanks for listening. I always appreciate it and taking time to type feedback.

You are correct, I started to layer some bass and will build with strings etc as time goes on. Will update. But its a back burner project with a few other similar tracks at the moment.

I've been teleported to my youth, sat on a playstation one... Breath of Fire III (had a pretty sweet soundtrack for its time)... There were some melancholic moments in that game that really hooked you in... This is full of feeling and charm and a certain sense of stigma for me. It's magic mate, tread carefully with this one and save regularly when fiddling, it's a daydream made music.

Melancholic music should meander in my opinion. It suits a pensive mood.

Edit: The new Zelda: Breath of the wild has his kind of feel to it... Lots of meandering piano solos that really cause you to stop and breathe and admire the games craftmenship. Seriously reminds me of this too.

Cool backbone for a great Ambient track. I love a Rhodes any day. Some lush pads under there and slow analog arpeggios with Diva. Maybe a slow LPF resonant sweep here and there. Some whispered vocals.

Cool!

Thanks for all the input on this one. Taking on board all the ideas and how I want to evolve this seems to marry. Seeing as it's an improvised piece I need to marry up th notes to keys and chords. The I can build or I may simply improvise the additional parts by ear. Not being musically knowledgeable the improvisation will probably work better. Keep and eye on this space. I'll bump it when done.

Damn, this would sound so amazing with a saxophone or some jazzy samples. Have you done or considered anything like this? I love Rhodes keyboard, and this ambient approach to it is awesome.

Seriously I could just imagine a saxophone going along to this. Maybe it's just my desire for ambient jazz shining through or something lol. I just got finished listening to Sunset Mission by Bohren and der Club of Gore, I highly recommend it if you think you like the idea of ambient jazz.

It is really good man, pat yourself on the back!

Yeah..pretty cool Vangelique rambling down ambient Rhodes of beauty..only to get lost after a mile or so. :D

Been there myself, mate..nearly always end up there at some point in a project, so take my joshing above as just that. I really liked this..totally my thing..just wish you could have made it a little more "complete" in more ways than one. Hopefully you will. ;)

Nice one. :drinks:

I'm allways a fan of these kind of ambient tracks. Remind me of Thomas Koner a little bit. Very calming :)

Just came here to say I enjoyed this, though this isn't usually my kind of thing. I thought it might have had some even sparser moments with an even larger reverb drawing out some of the tails.
