Dark Ambient Track: Ectoplasmic Communication


Ectoplasmic Communication

Each of the dark ambient tracks that I attempt to create gets more and more complicated. This is something I want to keep to a minimum, as with that complexity comes the chance of over-burdening myself with what I hope to do, and then losing the drive to do it at all. That being said, I'm quite pleased with Ectoplasmic Communication, the latest track I've completed. 

I rubbed up against a lot of things that I wanted to do but couldn't. I did reach a place where I was pleased enough with it that I felt done though. As in my previous tracks, I enjoyed using the field-recordings that I'd recorded myself. I also purchased Audiobulb's Ambient as I felt that it would help me when noodling around with filters and whatnot, trying to find interesting sounds. It's a great bit of software and I used it on one element of Ectoplasmic Communication to bring some weirdness to the soundscape. Everything else was done in Audacity, as before.

Thanks if you decide to check out my track :).
