Here’s an ambient track to start your week. This is called “Hermit Thrush” from a San Francisco-based outfit called Airking. Minimalism may not be your cup of tea, but as I’ve been talking a little about the combination of nature and technology, I thought I would blog this piece.
The piece features a loop of a lush synth chord, one that contains a suspended fourth, giving the feeling that there is something to resolve. Over this are some heavily modified samples of a hermit thrush call (click here for .wav file of such) and some synth fills that mimic the call and some of it’s elements.
