[AMBIENT] / / A T H E N S / / - *~* S l e e p y ~

So I havent posted anything on my "aesthetic" account in forever since I created it, and I want to start posting on it more, so Im bringing it back with this drone I created the other day. I was playing around with sine waves and chordal qualities, and took 3 chords (all of them are major 9th chords, with different inversions, so technically the structure is kinda like a sus4 chord idk i suck at music theory it just sounds nice, hopefully Berklee will teach me what im actually doing in the fall ) but i used volume and pan automation to constantly evolve and change the chordal qualities by bringing the different parts of the chord in and out and changing which direction the sound is coming from, and all in all I kinda like what happened.

take a listen!

Good to see you still doing stuff here. Hope you have lots of fun in school.

I really don't know how to critique this at all
Sounds drone-y.

I like that thing that happens at 0:49, where it bends inwards.

This track is a little hard on my ears when listening on earbuds with the sines and panning panning. That's not to say that panning is bad, just some of the sharp sines hurt a little bit (but might be my fault and not yours since I have a little bit of tinnitus).

Though, I do really like those bending chords and the overall vibe of the track.

thanks for the feedback!

I found that this track sounded best on stereo systems and higher quality headphones and sound systems, just because cheaper systems may not replicate the sine waves as well, adding some unwanted harmonic distortion on top of the already present natural harmonic distortion of the clashing sine waves. Being that ear buds are very treble heavy, I can see why this track may be uncomfortable through that medium

Im glad you enjoyed the chords and the overall vibe, and I really appreciate your feedback!

thanks so much
