  1. I just wrote a simple guitar riff and I thought it would be nice if I just put it over some videos I recorded from the forest and lake in my neighborhood. So, I made a complete dark ambient song and made this music video for that.
  2. I watched a video of YouTube musician Andrew Huang titled "Hacking Jazz". First, he recorded a melody then he added a jazzy harmony under the melody. So, I did the same thing, but I didn't want to write "jazz" melody, it was just a simple improvisation on the guitar. Anyway, when I moved the recorded audio to FL Studio, I decided to harmonize the melody with everything I know about jazz. This is the result 😛
  3. I just wrote this psychedelic blues rock (boogie woogie inspired) song. I hope you enjoy!
  4. Guys, last year I started my post rock one-man-band and this is the forth single track I wrote and recorded. I hope you enjoy! https://mangrovelakeswans.bandcamp.com/track/in-praise-of-solitude

    Happy new year everyone! This is one of "Hammock" styled songs I made. You know, it's not cool to copy other bands, but it's really cool to get inspired by their style and music. So, I did it! I just plugged my guitar, I started recording a very unusual but effective progression (I-vi-I-III) and then, I added a layer of reverb and a layer of cello on top. Cellos are not that loud, but still enough to give the piece a soul! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRngYTxKBPg
  6. Hey guys! I made another Jazz track! Hope you enjoy! P.S : I wrote the whole story behind the track in description.
  7. It's been a long time I wasn't here. I was too busy and had no time to even practice guitar. But, two or three days ago, I had free time, so I decided to write a bit of Smooth Jazz. I'm really falling in love with this genre, I listen to classic Jazz music when I'm working or studying, and my head becomes full of melodies I should write. I think smooth jazz is my new genre. I hope you enjoy!
  8. Haha, thanks friend. It's a honor for me.
  9. As I'm a big fan of Olafur Arnalds, I try to make my music close to his style. He presented a nice combination of electronic and classical music. Playing piano with a string section and adding synths, pads and electronic drums on top, made the music amazing. I hope you like my track! Also, the piece name means "Nocturnal Redemption" in Icelandic.
  10. Recently, I tuned my guitar's four low string like a Cello (I kept the G, tuned D to C, A to F and E to B-flat) and added a Capo on 2nd fret. It really sounded amazing (When I Capo-ed it, it really gave me a Cello tuning). So, I decided to record this piece. I don't think I make my guitar a Cello again, but I think it's cool to give it try, at least once!
  11. Today was (and still is!) cloudy. I really love the cloudy days and I thought it would be nice if I do something musical for today. I opened my DAW and started writing some music. This is the result, I really loved it. Hope you enjoy!
  12. Thanks! I think this is the best ambient track I ever made :))

    Khorasan

    I heard Michael Manring's "Adhan", which is based on Muslim's call for prayer, and I loved it! (Manring's Adhan (link), Original Adhan (link)). So, I picked my guitar and started playing. I played some notes as background loops then started improvising in Maqam Hijaz / Phrygian Dominant mode (they're basically the same thing!) and I loved the result! I call the piece "Khorasan" because there's one of most important religious areas in Iran (because The holy Shrine of Imam Reza is placed there). DAW : FL Studio 20 Instrument : Ibanez iJRG200u FX : Efektor CH3604, Blackhole Reverb, Valhalla UberMod, Valhalla Shimmer, ReaEQ, Fruity Parametric EQ2, Fruity Compressor
  14. One of my friends invited me to "Inktober" challenge, but I can't paint that good, so I decided to make this piece as an answer to her 🙂 This is an ambient piece written and arranged by me. I hope you enjoy! DAW : FL Studio VST Instruments : EZKeys (Dream Machine, Room Celeste preset), Serum (for Pads), Kontakt 5 (Chris Heins Solo Cello) VST FX : Fruity Delay 3, Blackhole Reverb, Valhalla Shimmer, Fruity Compressor, Fruity Parametric EQ2
  15. I actually found this structure in some licks from famous neoclassical guitar players like Yingwie Malmsteen or Jason Becker. This is why I called it neoclassical.
  16. I just made this track as the second "Lute" ambient I make. Hope you enjoy!
  17. I love the way Malmsteen or Jason Becker play neoclassical riffs or licks. I listened to their music deeply, and I found a little music theory hacks, and I used one of them (i-iv-V) to compose a short piece. I wanna know your opinions about the piece.
  18. This is the third single from my one-person-band. In the genre of post-rock and post-metal. Hope you enjoy! https://mangrovelakeswans.bandcamp.com/track/identity
  19. There's a genre called "Arabic trap" . Your piece reminds me of that type of music. Also, it's very common here in mid-east to use traditional music as a base for modern music. In Iran, there's a guy called "Homayoun Shajarian" (He's son of Muhammadreza Shajarian, famous Persian singer). He just mixed ancient and traditional Iranian music with rock/jazz taste. Anyway, I enjoyed your piece!
  20. Hey guys! I just made this video for a YouTube contest, but I think it would be good if I post it here to know your feedback and reaction to the piece.
  21. I love the movie "Un Chien Andalou" or "An Andalusian Dog", which is a 1929 short film by Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali (glorious names, aren't they?). I also love alternative and avant-garde style of metal music, so today I made this track. Actually, the first riff was a little warmup for me, I connected my guitar to laptop and recorded it. It actually sounded "metal" to me, so I decided to use it in a song, I glued three parts together and "Andalusian Dog" was born 🙂
  22. Thanks! I got the idea from "progressive" metal music for drums. Drums play 5/16 and 7/16 and 7/8 but guitar is simple 4/4. I love to play with rhythms like this. You know, this is why I love this genre. I really wanted to copy bands like Vinterrikket but I couldn't. Before I start serious music production, I restricted myself to drone, ambient and noise music. Later, I tried to make EDM music and other types of electronic music. But now, I just got blocked by myself and I can't make my ideas on paper or DAW.

  24. Hey guys! I'm really suffering from writer's block and I want to know your opinion about these pieces I wrote as a "practice" to write a serious metal song ... I tried Ambient Black Metal, Atmospheric Black Metal (Blackgaze, actually!) and Funeral Doom. And, I want to know which one I made better and I should continue. Upload center of YC gave me some errors, so I uploaded them in an Iranian site. I hope you can download theme (facepalm) Ambient black metal : http://s8.picofile.com/file/8333929826/ambientBlackMetal.mp3.html Blackgaze : http://s8.picofile.com/file/8333929934/Blackgaze_Sketch.mp3.html Funeral Doom : http://s8.picofile.com/file/8333929992/FuneralDoomSongTestPointless.mp3.html
  25. Thanks for your kind reply. Actually, it supposed to be a long D minor chord, but I think shimmer, delay and distortion (which is actually product of EBow and guitar pickup) affected the notes and changed them. Anyway, I liked it a lot! Yes, it's actually an automated shimmer , added in post-process. Thanks again!
