I have decided to start experimenting in the world of ambient music. Eventually I plan to create a whole album and release it to the thief communities.

But for now here is a taste of two tracks I created

Fruitloops is my main goto.

 

I find the melodies comes quite easy to me, the hard part is finding the right sound and keeping the ambient music simple enough where it's not distracting but complex enough where the melody can be enjoyed.

FLstudio really is the bomb when you give it a chance. It really takes the pain out of synchronizing tracks and notes as it snaps everything in a time window with ease. You basically make loopable patches, that have their own mix channel for balancing that then can be tacked onto the time window. Then you just start creating a whole array of notes and progressions and tack more in. I'd really recommend it!  ;)

I like it. It's smooth and lenient. Like the best Thief, Myst and Riven tracks.

Some stock TDM ambience is somewhat too agressive for my taste so I really can't find anything wrong with this. I'd absolutely love more of this.

It's not like music has to be in the top 10 album of soundtracks, but if it's good, it's good. Good music has no genre IMHO.

 

Outstanding job!

 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

Nice. BTW, as i'm fiddling a bit with synthesizers myself, in the original Thief games, Eric Brosius used FM sounds a lot (It's really one of the core elements in most of his stuff). I think he also used some wavetable synthesizers, like the old PPG synthesizers, and probably also sounds from rompler synthesizers, like the Roland or KORG ones. 

 

I always wanted to go round, and try to do some music in the style of the Thief soundtrack, but, like always when i want to make music, never really managed to finish something...
