Tightbeam Quazilift Theorising (A Distant Ambient Mix)

Description
This is, if anything, a wannabe Ambient track masquerading as an experimental electronic track. Three minutes to boot. Fade-out included.

The sounds are an excursion, with a manic undertone (literally as well as sonically) that haven't quite made it into any of my previous pieces at quite this intensity or anything of the sort.

There may be more of these off the wall mixes. Who knows? I certainly don't.

Sweet
I got some early Tangerine Dream vibes here...

Thanks and take care,

Hi Henke.....
Yes. TD is evident in the mix. I spotted that as I put the piece together. I was never much of a fan of theirs but some of their music did impress me.

Take care.

The contrast between the growly low end synths and the pulsating higher registers works well. Hypnotic. Thanks, Paul. Regards, Peter.

Hi Peter....
I love contrast. Parts that are harmonious or fit together but stay apart enough to hear them.

Take care.

The tile is intriguing enough!
As Peter said, hypnotic!

Cheers

Hi Dick.....
The title came to me in a dream.....not really but it was a spur of the minute thing as I was filling the upload form in.

Hypnotic seems good to me. Hopefully it doesn't send anyone to sleep!!

Take care.

Yes, I like this deep growling sound and the underlying rhythmic pulse, which sounds to me like a boiling pot or kettle! At the start, I was expecting a proggy guitar to burst in! But thankfully, it didn't. What is Quazilift? Google gives no clue, so can I assume you've made it up?

Nice sounds Paul.

Hi Dave......
Guilty!! I made the word up. It came to me in a flash...Quazi as in 'pseudo' was my thought.

The rhythmic element was created using a fast repeat, Dub delay, and I was playing around with delay and accidentally found it. I left it in the mix. you'll hear more of this sort of thing as I'm in an experimental, try anything mood just now.

The Tangerine Dream element started it off and I just went with what stuck together for three synch'd tracks.

Take care.

I came for the title ..
.. and stayed for the music.

I'm a sucker for these kinds of ambient pieces .. ever since back in the day when I would listen to that radio program "Hearts in Space." Yet I don't seem to have the ability or temperament to create music like this myself .. so I can only listen with envy.

Hi Warren......
I've only gotten into this type of music in the last 14 years. Before that it was jazz (fusion mainly) and a bit of classical music.

Never heard of Hearts in Space so I missed out.

Thanks for stopping by to listen.

Take care.

Always something new...
...in your compositions, Paul. This one has some very very cool deep tones that kind of masquerade like a contrabass bassoon or reed. I would love to hear your music backing a film scene. This one is quite hypnotic, the pulsing rhythm track keeping it all centered. But those LOW tones—THEY are rich! And, what?! 3 minutes and out? Tell me it's not so. Now I am certain you are coming over to the dark side.

Hi Paul...
I used the Bud Rule. Three minutes and out....HaHa. The length (or duration) is fixed on two things normally, boredom or the piece seems to be ok to this point or this point. I stop the playing and review (or rehear?) and then decide if another take is necessary.

The Dark Side...Me.....Been there, done that, had the t-shirt (and mug), the t-shirt faded, the mug handle broke so I moved on. Seemed like a good time to let the light back in.

Take care.

That title is a mouthful. Personally, unlike davajonah, I think a proggy guitar would be fine. But, still. Interesting elements, and the deep growl always sits well with me. Fascinating piece, Paul.

Hi Duane......
The title is just made-up mumbo-jumbo that seemed to fit with the noises coming out of the headphones. I prefer TQT as my jaw doesn't lock as much when I pronounce it.

I hope to be doing all sorts of stuff over the next little while.

Take care.

And here I thought you were talking about a new means of upward locomotion for the fabled Notre Dame bell ringer.

When I think that you've wrung everything out of ambient that is possible to be wrung you create something that is delightful AND fresh too. Not just a variant of the same old. Your use of the delay is a very cool idea.

Thanks for the download Paul. Keep playing with new inspirations!
