Old Stuff, and New - Criticism and Compliments Welcome

Post by mandyistired » Sat Sep 16, 2017 9:50 pm

Hi Everyone!

It's been about 5 years since I last made music.

When I reopened the "faucet", the water tasted different, but it was still drinkable...

How does it taste to you? Thoughts, comments and/criticism appreciated! :)
Thank you!

Hey mandyistired,

Better get to bed a little earlier then... :idea: :|

But seriously though. I thought the ambient Soundcloud piece was, ah, ambient. But your EP? VERY nice. Creative, atmospheric; lots to try and zero-in on if one is in an intense listening/analysis mood, but also fine for ambient/background/chill-yourself-to-sleep music. "Process" is a little unnerving, but it keeps you on your toes. "Away" makes a nice ending to one's own personal suspense movie (for instance, going home to see the M-in-L tonight). Think I'm going to get me one. Thanks for posting and welcome back to music-making.

Hi Gregg! Thanks for taking the time to listen and write! I suspected the new stuff would get tagged as straight up ambient, I've been playing around with Paul's Stretch and got hooked into that haze of making music after midnight. :-D I most appreciated your comment about the EP being music for analytical listening styles...I worked really hard on that album and most people don't have the patience for it! Back when I was making that album my life was definitely kind of a suspense movie! Works wonders for churning out music! :P

Thanks again!! Cheers!

Ain't it the truth.

In any event, you do some nice work. Keep 'em coming!
