I really like very melodic and tonal ambient music, that is rather stabilized, with the pad being either constant or only slightly changing in tonality. A piece that would rather feel relaxing. However the monotonality creates this completely hair-raising, absolutely unsettling feeling. And the context of the song is able to make the piece even more terrifying. I watched a horror movie, where there was such a pad added into a scene where everybody was fighting for their lives and slowly dying in
Let me know if you ever remember the name.
Gruesome ways (I don't remember the name). It haunts me 'till this day. And this track is a great example of that.
might i suggest adding preverb to the melody? or like, having a reverse hit happen so that its less sudden and more dramatic
Good idea. I’ll try it.
fyi, i play this board game with friends called Escape the Dark Castle, and it has a spotify playlist to listen to while youre playing, and its essentially just 45 minutes of this stuff, defo worth checking out :D

goddamn, this atmosphere <3
Thx. I was once told that putting together motifs and progressions that don’t really “work” makes a piece unsettling. The dissonance creates an almost primal effects that’s uncomfortable. Thought I’d try it out some more.
