GENRE: ___Ambient___


#122

Ambient is a very wide genre, it really depends on what you think of as ambient.


#123

Poor ole me can only make ambient on a compooter


#124

As a dedicated listener of ambient and other related genres, I know that. Evidently, what I think of as ambient doesn’t really include that track. :wink:

To my ears, it simply had more defining characteristics in common with chill and future bass genres than something that you’d find filed under ‘ambient’.


#125

Well yeah, but your classification of ambient music doesn’t necessarily
apply to everybody else.


#126

I get that. But by the same token, something isn’t ‘ambient’ (genre) just because you, moemx - or I - say it is*.
It actually does have a general definition and defining characteristics.

* unless you’re Brian Eno :wink:


#127

@NotMiles and I want the stranger things song my man! Do it.


#128

You expect me to post something you could get for yourself in a 2-second Google search?
It’s not hard to find. It’s one of the most popular TV shows in recent years.


#129

You’re right. Here it is https://youtu.be/-RcPZdihrp4

And absolutely true: this sounds RIDICULOUSLY similar to my song. :smiley: i never heard this theme until now.

So it’s decided: stranger things will be my next bingewatch project :wink: :ok_hand:t3::smirk:

Edit: just found this cello medley which is even more dope. https://youtu.be/OGe-WXhbmBg

It’s called ‘making a point’. :wink:


#135

don’t need to “make a point” when that could get people annoyed at you…
and it takes longer to read anyway


#136

Fwiw, I’m fine with that. Life’s not a popularity contest.
‘Spelling it out’ isn’t about efficiency, it’s about effect.

Jus’ sayin’


#137

my point is, you don’t have to spell it out…


#138

If it was that obvious, presumably they wouldn’t have made that request.

We done here?


#139

Trippy ambient bit in Sulfur Caves.

Oh, and @akabillposters, sometimes I just forget that Google is a thing that exists, it happens.


#140

My latest polytonal madness embraces ambient-ness around 2 minutes in, before going on a romp through a few other genres, finding its way to a vacuum cleaner sound that’s been stored in my head for decades, around 6’:
