Not sure why but I can never get youtube videos to show on this forum. Any way here is a link to a video of my concert from a few weeks ago:

https://youtu.be/I37auFrlFNA

You have to use it in this way --> starting with www. and not using the given short https
Like this (I typed the first "w" in brackets otherwise the video would be visible but not the link) --> (w)ww.youtube.com/watch?v=I37auFrlFNA

Great perspectives from everyone.....good in depth thoughts Judd.

A lot may have to do more with states of mind than actual track length.  It is how it works for me I feel.  An example of  this would be this piece of music from William Basinski.  At times I can leaving it play all day and also times that I turn it off because its just annoying and nothing seems to change as my attention needs to latch on to more solid sonic shapes and changing form.



Of course ambient / space music is there to assistant in resolving stressed states of mind much like meditation which is what happens when I am listening to the long form pieces of music.  I am meditating.  I cant say the same for shorter pieces and perhaps thats the point....the form suites the purpose. 

Could it be that short tracks are more ambient pop....And Im not saying this negatively just that the form is more.... intro - verse - chorus - verse - bridge etc.

I once tried to compose pieces of music that had to be no more than a minute in length.....interesting challenge but it did not work.

Excellent performance Loren....what a beautiful kaleidoscope of tone and texture.  Really enjoyed it.   

Might be an idea to repost this in the members projects section so others who want nothing to do with us gearheadz ;D can experience the piece.

A new module added to my system...Iron Ether Pithoprakta, a probabilistic rhythm generator.  Basically a very random gate sequencer






FYI....Iron Ether is primarily a guitar pedal manufacturer out of Lafayette Louisiana with just this one astonishing eurorack module

Wow, I didn't know that Iron Ether was from Louisiana, let alone 40 minutes away from where I live. Thanks for posting about that.

Thanks! That's an interesting suggestion. I'm going to play around with it more before I finish the album and mess around with different mixes. I feel like I'm on to something but I just need to refine the compositions a little further.

The last couple of times I've tried making an album like this, I ended up failing to produce something noteworth and instead, went on to something else. This has been going a lot better so far.

One suggestion.  I would try to move the echoing pulse drone a little further back in the mix and maybe bring that slower moving "melody" towards the front of the mix a little more.  It might add a more contrast between the back and front of your mix.  Maybe a bit more chorusing to bring warm mids in or maybe a delay pan to break the sound field up a bit.

I like listening to both long and short ambient pieces.  But for longer pieces, I want them to morph over time.  Otherwise, they might work better as short pieces.  I find that shorter pieces work better as a part of larger group of pieces that have a variety of textures, like Eno's Music For Films.

Some of Kit Watkins' releases have been appearing in digital form on CD Baby on the last year or so, including two newer releases--an EP called "Land" and a soundscape album called "Mockingbird Mantras":
