lost in the fog

By kaedo sevaada on February 17, 2018 3:18 am

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

I don't know if its the influence of the Tolkien quote but this sounds really epic and out of an otherworldly mythology or story. Very cinematic. Great vocal work.

Excellent!

Beautiful piece.

i love your approach to sound design and the way your voice meshes with each of your tracks is so great. loving the otherworldly vibe to this, reminds me of brian eno's apollo. great!

Yes. Epic and pure. Beautiful.

the tolken quote came later after writing this - it seemed to fit - it's been so foggy here lately & it feels like another world especially out hiking  & watching the ice thaw off various bodies of water - it's been a beautiful close to winter!  i'm glad i was able to create a slice of the soundtrack though i feel this offering didn't quite encompass the epic beauty of the foggy landscape

& now i need to check out eno's apollo - thank you all for listening!

Oh yeah.  This is really good.  I'm right there in the middle of the fog.  The vocals are just perfect.

February 25, 2018 4:37 pm

MMMMmmm really lovely track! I love the juxtaposition of Tolkien and these synthy choral sounds. Puts me in a somehow familiar and pleasant headspace. heart

as an artist i strive to create an astral projection experience - words so often fail me - thank you for listening!

Gorgeous piece with the incantation vocal and Eno-like reverb!  (Some interesting tips on how that Eno/Lanois reverb was done are on Sean Costello's blog, of course!)

February 26, 2018 9:00 am

Perfect start to a Monday morning.

February 27, 2018 11:23 pm

Took me on nice journey, calming. Thanks for another transforming soundscape! Agree, the Tolkien quote and your image helped send me off, lovely how it all works together to transport.

I think this is my favourite tune of yours. It is indeed very "Apollo"-ish. Are all those your vocals layered, or are you using some synth voices? Sounds sooo relaxing

    thank you! - there was a stock chorus texture loop that i used & actually made 3 tracks of with varied effects & panning & then there are layers of 5 of my own vocal tracks some singing around the synth chorus & then some diverging - i wish i had a real choir to record & sing with sometimes!

Oh, I wish you had it too. I'm sure you and your great imagination would get wonderful things done. Anyway, as you are, you're releasing some very fantastic and very distinctive pieces smile
