I'm new here. I've always been into all kinds of music; blues, free jazz, ambient, psychedelic rock, prog, industrial, shoegaze, space rock, etc.

but almost two months ago I finally decided to start taking all those influences and start making my own music. I'm really interested in manipulation of sound and started messing around with soft synths and Ableton Live 8.
What I want is to create layers of sounds, drones and textures intermingling together.


any tips concerning this approach to sound design?

welcome J.X.R.

and sorry to chase you away from chat with silly talk.

I've BTW removed the calendar event you added to the post, your introductory post didn't seem to be something that should be on the calendar.

right now I'm looking to develop more dense soundscapes / more subtle changes, like black vines growing around the listener

anybody got any tips for growing this kind of sounds?

JXR, sounds like you are going great directions.

My biggest tips... kind of abstract but... with recording and design just be brave, be totally you, and focus on making music you would most enjoy listenning to yourself.

Seems odd or obvious to say but so many people struggle with creating for the expectations of the world out there when really the best we have to offer is what makes our own ears and minds most happy.

less abstract... soft synths are great, but true analog gear is coming back into reasonably priced availability and so worth implementing. Entertain getting even a low end MFB synth or the Minibrute just coming out...

But again... just make sounds you love to hear... Smile
