Well, this is not the ambient track I was planning on submitting to this contest, but since it’s not entirely non-ambient, and I wrote it over these last few days, for 8Dio Score This: The Captain, I figured it might make a nice bonus entry for now.
And yes, there is lots of 8Dio stuff (including the Insolidus choir that was mentioned recently), and there’s also some basic cello!
This is almost exclusively 8Dio libraries with some processing, except for one synth, one drum sampler (the low kick), and one acoustic cello played by some 4 month cello beginner.
I started out with the synth loop, and built on that with mostly synth and hybrid sounds, trying to tie the emotions of the scenes together into an abstract story.
