Diver

By Ashen Simian on January 25, 2020 3:16 pm

It´s some underwater ambient music this time... mainly Korg O1/Wfd, some polysix too and samples from various sources. I tried to evoke a feeling of diving deep into an dark depth with glimmering light fading above, into a sunken city or something. Next week I will try to make a more sequencer-based track.

Great sounds. I like the aqua lung breathing sound in the background.  Also really cool how it starts with bubbles but gets more peaceful and darker in tone.  That creates a feeling of descent. Well done!

Mission accomplished. Great track.

the breath, and life in this is awesome.  Really reminds me of FSOL Lifeforms...inspiring, man!  Great work

Love the underwater feel and the bubbles at the beginning and the breathing sounds are all excellent touches.  It really feels like exploring the ocean depths.

Thank you all very much!  I have to admit that the actual diving sounds are a bunch of samples from a documentary about diving to wrecks. I cut them into pieces and constructed/mangled a bit differently... nice to make something ambient and shortish for a change. Glad you liked it...

about those FSOL vibes, I really love some of their work, around Lifeforms especially (and the Cascade), so I am very pleased if my track reminded you of that...

I close my eyes and I am absolutely there, what a treat! I'm not a very adventurous person by nature but if that music was playing, I would be down to explore the sea depths!

Freakin' great work. I could imagine this in a documentary about diving, or, to be honest, also a movie about a completely fucked dystopian future.
