Beneath the Tidal flow
Hopefully this youtube link works
Nothing like making a task harder I thought I would make a ambient track from a sample of two notes from a kalimba ( you can download the original recording here endlessinbetween.co.uk/kalimbasample.wav )
So I wanting to give some sort of story to track so its based on starting at the surface of the ocean so its bright at first but with the hint of the depths below and slowly traveling down to the sea bed. So track gets darker as you travel further down.
I used a lot of time stretching ( pauls timestretch - free app that allows you to do really long time stretching). I dropped the sample and the time stretched versions in to a few wavetable synths - Alchemy, pigments, Serum etc. and played around with these. I didn’t use any other wavetables or oscilators. I also used a few audio FX - Trantra, Soundtoys stuff, Vallhala shimmer to name a few.
Any feedback always welcome.
