dark ambient creepy weird atmosphere atmospheric soundscape
It's been a while since I've made any dark ambient. I wanted to check if I still got it. And this thing probably represents more accurately how I'm currently feeling.
@howthenightcame Thanks for your comment. I really like hearing what listeners imagine, when they listen to my music, so that's awesome you shared that.
As far as the image in my mind, when I started creating this piece, I thought of some sort of an enchanted forest. Overtaken by a strange cult. You got lost and the nighttime came quicker than you thought. Your heart rate is up, you're trying to find a familiar path, but as it gets darker, the sense of being watched gets stronger and stronger. You know that those strange people are there, but you can't see them. They hide in the darkness, just far enough for you to don't see them, but close enough to see you perfectly clear. And you know they're waiting for you to take the wrong turn by mistake.
As soon as I heard this, I thought "I'm in a tunnel, but then it opens out into a maze." Then, when I re-read the title, "Don't Stray", it absolutely made sense. So many song titles are just nonsense, but this one hits and it hits hard. Was there an image in your mind when you created this nightmare?
I found this to be a nice dark ambient track, the suspenseful nature starts out strong, and the slow waves of sound add to the effect.
