Description
this is a piece by Drakonis called Ember. I messed around with the files a bit, and this is what I came up with. There is still something wrong with my keyboard, so this is what I was able to do with some loops I made, new software instruments,and the keybooard and
my mouse in GB.

check out his version, it's really pretty. after I get my keyboard up and running i will probably have another go at this one. I keep hearing it as a David Bowie "Low" type of piece:

the artwork is from google images. all of the pics I use come from there; what I do is type in the first word of the song and see what comes up.

hyper low bass in there - nice!

i'm sitting in a chair, falling asleep, but still aware, and the last red glow in the fireplace is slowly fading away... i'm not sure if i am still seeing the logs, or only the memory of the logs... and i can still smell that hickory smoke flavor - it's been a good day. a very good day.

& i like the chirpy sounds

what's that chip? a customizable blue tooth device?

chirps ahoy
the chirps were the Eve soft synth run through a bit crusher, and some echo. I really like the Eve, haven't sat down and really played with it, but I have found some cool analog sounds on it. In real life I am an old Roland guy, (well that and my trusty CZ-1), but this thing is pretty sweet (and free). sorry i don't have the addy, but google it.

who knows what that picture is of. i thought it was purty.

Way out there...
The only way to detect these outer-space sounds would be to hook up the EM260 integrated circuit, shown above, with a massive radio-telescope antenna. The crystal would have to be replaced, though, with a much lower frequency, around 68 Hz. :-)

This is very cool, imaginative and unique... I like it! You've slowed it some, which gives it a large ponderous feel, and the instruments chosen are nice (love the sub-bass.) The twittering effect started out really nicely, since it was sparse... when it got very busy and twittery, it was a little distracting, I would suggest other variations/sounds as embellishments interspersed as well.

Nice work here, and congratulations on becoming a new dad AND whipping out a nice Ember collab, all with a broken keyboard!

ttfn,
Drakonis

It is Better Slow
I hear traces of Warszawa in your arrangement.

Really cool Ember...
Deep Space sound, with Memories of Birds. ;-) On my 3rd listen, I like it a lot. :-)

powerful
wow, that bass is deeeep. This left me staring at the fire's embers way long past the end of the tune. Superb. Deliciously wet. Wonderful use of space.

Ahhh yes
Warszawa.

But this sounds like its filtered through Before and After Science as played by Ryuichi Sakamoto

Very cool

ooh
a new name. i'm not familiar with that artist, so i will definitely have to check them out. i do love all of the avant garde japanese electronic composers. there are so many multifaceted people in that genre.thanks for listening.

tranquility
Yes, I like this version a lot. It has a global communications feel to it. Long build-up, natural sounds fading in and out. Good one!

Man.....
.....that is subtle.

It's sad that my life is so fast paced these days that I find myself getting fidgety - instead of just sitting back quietly and drinking it all in, letting the music wash over me and feel that deep bass settle in my weary bones.

The coolest ember I've heard so far...
It's awesome how you have taken this and chilled it down to the point of stalagtites appearing in my aural landscape! Just love it. :)
