Oh, hello there. I guess you want to know who I am. I mainly create ambient music and voice act here on NG. Occasionally youll see me produce some silly animation or game. If you want to chat or something, send me a spanky danky PM. *Sig by Magical-Zorse*

Working on New Songs

Posted by FatKidWitAJetPak - December 25th, 2011


I just got an H4n Surround Sound Recorder for Christmas. That means that I can put EVERYTHING that I have learned throughout the past few months to use. I have recently been focusing all my energies on working at Apple, finishing up the NG Audio CD, and learning new things everyday in the world of Komplete 8. I am currently working on getting signed with Ultimae, a group of ambient and chill out composers.

If you want to help me get signed on and support my music, send them an email telling them what you enjoy in my music. I am three tracks away from finishing my album. Damn, it has been a loonnggg journey of developing my own techniques and learning musical composition. I have really enjoyed expressing myself through sound waves. It's a very interesting concept, especially out here in the deep south where no one knows what ambience is. I really enjoy bringing these, as some would call it, "unique and powerful sounds" to the public.

It has been a very long journey, and I even have a short story written for the album, but now that I have everything written down all I have to do is record it, piece it together, and post it here. The entire album is a journey through my mind, taking place during my most difficult psycological states where I found my self depressed, emotionally unstable, and seemingly insane (BPD). Luckily, I didn't let this get to me as a bad thing. Instead, I used these states of thought as a meditational experience and found ways to describe my feelings by crafting together musical compositions in the form of Ambience and Drone. Each song can mean whatever you want it to mean. It can bring back memories, take you on a journey, or simply make you think.

Anyway, now that I have this H4n recorder, I CAN FINISH THE ALBUM WOOHOO. I am going out to record a playground, snow, traffic, metal, wood, breaking glass, dinners, hotels, hospitals, lonely walks, and many other environments. Then I am going to put together every sound effect I get and overlap them with layers of subtractive synths, deep and calming baselines, heartwarming pad structures, piano melodies, electronic riffs, and many other elements.

If you want to check out what I have so far, give these a listen. Review if you want. Leave a comment here. Bla bla bla.

First gonzo ever.

I make history my boy.

I have a Zoom H2 recorder, lovely little recorder. I bet the H4n is nice

It is wonderful! I am glad I got it, just in time apparently. They discontinued it, but it is PERFECT for what I need.

I'm really enjoying your ambience music, thank god i read your post, pretty sweet.

Thanks for the support! Did you just discover me through this post? :D

So you're doing a bit of sound design too?

Yeah. I am recording a lot and messing around with what I record.

Sick. You seem to really be evolving as an artist, NG should be proud to have you on it's team.

Baww thanks bro! I hope i can finally produce these ideas that are in my head. I should have one aong prodced by Friday and another produced by the end of the month now that i have my recorder. Ill let you know When they are ouylt.

Hopefully people will enjoy this album.

keep up the good work

I hope to never stop! :)

When I have the time I'll be sure to send those guys an email, they'd be fortunate to have a guy like you working with them.

And congrats on getting a nice recorder, being able to record your own sound effects whenever you want is a nice plus for ambience.

I am not nearly up to par with the amazing people on that team, but I think I have a chance at getting some of my music noticed by them and at least be given some tips or signed onto a collaborative CD. Your email would certainly help me out :)

I did my first recording session tonight. I have a lot more experimenting to do.
