Re: For your listening amusement

    I love the work....thank you for the coffee break. My favorite segment was 13 - 15 minutes. The sonic/tone mood is nicely interrupted with a disturbing tone....I like that link of stuff.
    I agree, you are too contextual/orchestrated to be hard core ambient. I always keep in mind why my wife hates ambient....cause it's the same sequence over and over without change. Don't let this get you down....it's a great work, well mixed. Next time....don't work so hard:)
    Did you use any old Juno sounds?

Subject: Re: For your listening amusement
I really liked the choice of sounds and textures...
but for an ambient soundscape I found it busy to the
point of distraction.  Trust me, I know this topic...
becaues it's one of my biggest issues with my own
music!  I've found that what I "feel" is a good amount
of activity is often way way way too much and I need
to play about 1/4 the amount.
A few techniques I've found that work well to "thin"
out my playing are to take frequent breaks during a
performance while really listening to and enjoying the
current loop.  Spend some time tweaking the loop with
a performance orientated effects processor like an
Alesis AirFX.  Another good technique is take a nice
slow but beautiful movie or scene and score it in real
time.  You'll be surprised how little you need to do
to make a great composition.
