May 4, 2020: With the pandemic going on throughout the world, I realized that folks need to hear music that’s soothing and comforting. Yesterday, I start to work on an orchestral ambient piece, and decided to pursue this avenue vigorously until I have an album length of ambient pieces.

    Hello my Friend,

    You have mastered the rich sounds and blends of your instruments. Dah, dah; very familiar two note wonder. I like the bell reminding us of other sounds then your accompaniment. Rich in flavor, I’d like to hear more content. You have called it a meditation No. 1 which indicates you would actually put someone in a meditative state. This is only a 1:22 minute piece. To be more meditative, believe it or not, I might want to slow it down even more, expand you thoughts. Have you meditated to this piece. I’m sure you might come up with something longer. There is no doubt, you have control of your sound, it is your signature. Don’t be afraid to look outside the box you have created and bring you signature with you.

    Let yourself go, you have the time to experiment.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Your friend

    Nice work! I look forward to hearing more. Yes, definitely compose for this niche, which I think of as slow and low.

    Cello is always a favorite for this genre.
    Also you may want to look into the science of frequencies and their affect on us.

    Carry on!
    Love to you.

    This piece made me think of good film music. I know these are mood pieces, but there is always a story, a narrative … something that propels the music forward, and I always find that haunting. It is easy to stay very concentrated on this piece. Your idea to pair it with images from the Hubble telescope sounds perfect.
