Postby Ridan; Thu Jun 07, 2018 6:02 pm Stories of a Traveling Snail (2013)

An old ambient/drone release I made while living in Japan some years ago.

https://soundcloud.com/bcaudio/sets/sto ... snail-2014

While enjoying the rain on my apartment's 4th floor balcony, I felt something on my shirt. Not knowing exactly what it was, and not having night vision, I immediately swiped whatever it was off my shirt. Upon closer examination I realized that it was a snail, and sadly the fall had cracked it's shell.
Feeling horrible about what happened, I began to wonder about its life story, and how it led this certain snail to climb up 4 stories only to come in contact with a clumsy human being.

So, I decided to dedicate this release to that one unfortunate snail.

Listened to the first track. Very nice. Almost hypnotizing. Is that ocean sound FX I hear? There's so much going on it's hard to tell.

Like wagtunes, I listened to the first track. Also enjoyed it. The music washes over you like waves, which I guess is intentional.
Well done!
Music with progressive intent.
