This track started with the idea of having randomized patterns playing over a set chord progression, but that didn't work at all the way I wanted. Fun experiment, but I abandoned it. Still, all the sounds worked well together so I gave them some direction, added a drum beat (I've been working on tuning the drum sound when it comes to the Deluge, and I think I might be slowly getting there), and gave it some more layers. Then it was just a matter of trying to package it all into a roughly 3 minute experience. Enjoy!

Some nice sounds and textures and it definitely makes for a soothing experience.

I like the melody you made with the bells and how it plays with the other short synth. The lower pads also bring a cool texture. The drums this time are lower in the mix - that works drive in propelling the track further. The ending melody that sounds a bit like a wind instrument is also pretty cool. Nice composition!

This chord progression is lovely. Your instrument sounds are perfect to the peaceful atmosphere, and I especially like this bell sound. It's another great song to see underwater life smile

Excellent, this is a great sound palette. Great patches, smooth atmosphere, nice progression.

This is cool, i like the relaxing sounds and the lead that comes in. Try randomly transposing everything and seeing what it gives you. Would be a fun experiment.

This is super pretty. It gives me similar vibes to Cocainejesus, which is a slow beat, textured dreamy atmosphere, and really intimate and emotive melodies. Really great work this week smile

Excellent selection of sounds that create a really soothing quality.  Def gives off those underwater vibes too.  Or at least floating/drifting smile

wow lovely track! Puts me right in the same place as listening to something like Boards of Canada. Such a pleasant listen.

Dang man. I think you're really setting a nice chill synth type of style in your tracks now. Love the melodies

it's fun when the drums kick in

These sounds really do fit well together. The delay modulation is really neat. I like how we don't hear the delayed notes coming in beat patters, but rather a warping echo that blends together nicely. Nice use of delay and release duration. The release tail really helps with creating a smooth delay here.

Nicely put, the layered sounds work really well. I still think the snare should be more in the front though.

Sounds good, pretty stuff. I've been wanting to play with more randomization. I love happy accidents that happen during creation. I like when the drums come too.
