Hi Charlie. I am really glad that you explained what this piece is about cause it's given me a clearer picture but it could be that this genre is not usually something that I listen to. Still I like the way you have captured that 'stepping out into the unknown' vibe. There's elements of excitement and fear in this piece. The idea is well executed. PJ
My take on this fascinating soundscape is as follows: I feel I am an alien being, drifting through interstellar space. The sounds heard in the first five minutes of the piece represent my own fantastic, otherworldly experience. Gradually, as I drift along, I begin to pick up on radio waves emanating from a certain small blue world. I am intrigued, curious. In this state, I begin to imitate what I hear from Earth. We now have a close encounter of the fourth kind, an inter-special jam session. After my musical energy is spent, I continue my journey into the infinite beyond. A treasure of evocation, Charlie!
Wow, thank you all for your nice feedback. The piece is about exploring space and the wonders it can bring as well as the dangers. Love the way you all describe my score without knowing the full story apart from the title itself :)
Charlie, this is a different slice from you. I like this a lot. You paint quite a picture here full of beautiful and mysterious images. Production is clear suits the mood here (which is on the dark side) very well. There are parts here especially at 4:16 that drone is wonderful!
feels as though I am flirting with the earth's gravity...approaching...feeling it..then backing off...I enjoyed the sounds you gathered in this composition...and the deliberate pace you moved us through the forces acting upon us...the ambient section gave way in a surprising turn at 5m..a mechanistic view of the force....liked the bells/chimes at the end...for whom does the bell toll...and gravity falls? delightful! :)
Very sweet intro lulling me in. Ambient and warm :) Thoughtful movement of music and it gains in warmth and vibrancy as it moves along! Almost reminds me of very, very early pink floyd. Trippy Soundscape throughout! A well thought out piece of music. Didn't expect the broken beats half way through that faded in and then out again. Long track but engaging. Alot of work has gone into this! Enjoyed, Ess X
Are we pulled or pushed? :-)
Enjoyed this intricate movement of music Charlie...I kinda found it very calming. Good use of the ten minutes along all of those twists and turns and the way it constantly, but subtly, blends into something else. Mas
terful work! keith
Gravity has a power of attraction and so does this track (see what I did there?) What a great piece of ambient electro Charlie, redolent of the once great analogue days of Tangerine Dream before they moved on to elevator music. It took me somewhere else in time and space, rather like gravity itself (see, I did it again!). Thumbs definitely up for this one.
I was born in London, England in 1982, and I suppose I've always had a passion for music. I enjoyed playing traditional instruments at school, but my interest in music composition really got started when I found out about computer music sequencing, and when I got access to a suitable machine back in the mid-1990s.
The technology has changed almost beyond recognition over the years, but my love of music has remained constant.
To understand music theory, and to learn more about the technical and professional aspects of music production, I attended University in Ealing, home of the famous Ealing Film Studios, and got a graduate qualification in Music Technology
I've been lucky enough to compose music for movies, and video games since then. I like to work in a variety of styles. With each new piece, I try to remain stylistically and culturally authentic to the genre, but I always try to add whatever the secret formula of musical herbs and spices is that makes up the trademark Charlie Armour sound.
I love to make music with other people, using the global reach of the internet to maintain collaborative relationships and friendships with independent music and video artists from all corners of the globe. I have been credited as producer and composer on a number of projects, and gained priceless opportunities to expand my own artistic horizons in doing so.
I suppose the fact that I have made it so far is something of a miracle, given my battle with Leukodystrophy, a neurological disorder which (in my case) affects the use of my legs and hands - not an ideal situation for a musician, but I don't get distracted by little things like that. I believe that persistence is the main component of success, both in music, and in life - and I hope that my example will encourage other people to ignore their own distractions, and remain persistent in their own attempts to achieve their goals.
