The first link was the product/cause of my insomnia last night; any criticism of it or the second linked composition would be highly appreciated.

New track up. This third one is most definitely not ambient; it's inspired by a recent change in weather.

Another track's up; I've stopped linking to them individually, seeing as everything on this account is part of this project. The higher up, the more recent it is, and the more likely it is to be in need of critting. Otherwise, just pick whatever looks interesting to you.

Really enjoyed, would love to here this in a more analogue form (i.e. Boards of Canada). Especially that bass line played on a bass guitar. Throw in even more layers and loops to make the track more immersive, but great.

I'm assuming you're referring to the first one?

I'd love to, but I don't really have the ability to record, which is kind of sad; I write the part out on my bass, which is five feet from my computer, and then have to program it on here.

Magnetism. Real interesting ambient piece - I could totally see this in a video montage or as an 80s movie soundtrack. I like that about it. Not too much variation but granted that is probably the style of this kind of track, therefore I don't have too much to critique about it. Cool vibe, I feel like I could sleep to it also. Well done.

Closure. Haha again, this would be wicked for an 80s soundtrack. Copped a Daft Punk feel here. Big plus for the deep bass line you've got going on. The machine-like synths are a nice touch too. Have you thought about film score composition? From these two tracks, I tell you have a sense for it. The way the song is based around a riff and then how it builds and falls etc. Keep it up my man.

Wish you had a real bass playing that instead of synth, would sound better. Could definitely be shortened up a bit but I know how your just supposed to chill to ambient music forever so I guess not really a problem. Piano tone is perfect btw

I would suggest our closer song Monolith as it is ambient electronic like you have here.

I really enjoyed Magnetism, it reminded me of video game music. I think I'd prefer it to have a proper bass as well. Sometimes I felt as though it was a bit too "in your face" to be ambient though, but that's just me. Overall it was really good! What did you use to make the track?

This was all made in Ableton Live 8, although most, if not all of the parts were written out on my bass and an acoustic 12-string. I critted Sometimes Y on SoundCloud, seeing as you didn't post a link to a thread.

A new track is up in the OP; it isn't ambient, but I retagged the genre on all of these to just "Electronic" anyways.

Magnetism: I like the overall feel of the song, and the variations in instrumentation. Loved the tone on the keys. Personally, I'm not a fan of the percussion and bass. Perhaps you could edit the timing and dynamics on the bass track to give it a slightly more organic vibe. I liked the tone of the percussion, though it could use some variation.

Closure: I like the bass lines and tone you got here. But sometimes it just feels like all the sounds are too much, or too harsh maybe.

All is Forgiven: This one I really like. It's a really uplifting yet mellow song, and it stays interesting throughout.

I'm not a big fan of the genre, but this is good. I feel like the kick needs some work done to it. But again I'm not familiar with the style, so that may be what you were looking for. I do like the highs that come in stereo. It's ear candy. I could actually hear this working out into a hip hop track. The production was pretty good. My only thought was to do something with the kick. Good job though, cheers!

*edit*
I listened to Five Square Roots of Five.
