Long-form Ambient Compilation


#189

I have mine mostly done, but I’m in the stage of leaving it alone and coming back to tweak it. I figured it would be fairly easy to come up with 30+ minutes of music, but I’ve discovered that my desire for arc makes this more of a challenge than I expected. At ~32 minutes, it appears I’ve got the “miniature” in this group! As for the rest of the album, I hope to be able to hear everything through once before my daughters are out of college… :rofl:

Making progress…

Sections: | crackles & small drones | rough & bendy | big swooshers | crackle bells | bigger swooshers & bakes | bells & bakes | bakes & grinds | tape lament & grinds |


#191

Whoa, somehow I missed this thread entirely. I’m definitely up to submit a track. Thanks to the organizers for setting this up. This sounds amazing.


#192

So, I somehow only just realized that in my initial pass of timestretching, I waaaay overshot what I meant to do, and have a 2.5 hour thing going on. Now makes more sense that it took a 1/2 hour to bounce a track in place…


#193

This sounds cool, think I am in…


#194

My 45 minute track seems like a miniature now! Might have to make a longer piece (or a companion B section to extend the existing one)


#195

25mins, and a track that is by accident less ambient than the one submitted for the most recent LCRP.


#196

Been working on my track, at 12mins atm :slight_smile:


#197

Well, a 1.5 hour thing, apparently. Logic X’s time display is weird.


#198

What should we name this compilation? I’d like to make some artwork for it.


#199

I give it a try. Never did an ambient piece before


#200

45 mins here… just seemed to stop justifying itself at this point. Something to do with my attention spans no doubt. Just previewing a mix now. Havent got a title for it yet either.

Thoughts on title for the collection???

Long Lines
Postcards from slow places
String and can theory

hmmm not sure - well just to get the ball rolling.

#204

In the middle of spraying the orchard, but later I’ll do a sketch for that one too and see what we like.


#205

I like “long lines” and the image @jasonw22 made!

Just for no reason, here’s a couple other ideas for a title:

  • “Time ripens the creatures” (one of my favorite phrases from the Mahabharata)
  • “the gulf between poems” or “in your mind you form a line” (both phrases from Tanner Menard’s poem “why/ i/ so many xunrise”)
  • “the lowpassed quadrature” or “the phase angle” (both phrases from F. Richard Moore’s description of a phase vocodor implementation – AKA one of the fundamental time-stretching algorithms – in his elements of computer music book)

I was starting to feel a little depressed and stresssed about this one, thinking I’d have to cobble something together at the last minute. Thankfully, I found a path forward this morning that should allow me to weave about 6 months worth of recordings together…excited to start on a first assembly in the next few days.


#207

Love it!

(and 20 characters)


#208

Hmm, that’s nice too. What do you think, strong preference for either of the ones I have done, or should I move on to @lettersonsounds’s suggestions?

EDIT: I’m leaning towards this one.
