Tokyo trains
My favourite city..the vast tiled underground...
the ghostlike shinkansen ...you've got in one. The ambience is perfect. I did a less adventurous song "TOKYO SUNSET" try it.

I'm liking
this! Yes, Tokyo trains [trains all over Japan really] are fantastic. We've recently returned from a second visit. This is lovely music, but for the real Japanese rail experience, you'd need to throw in some 8 bit computer game sounds. Every time you pull into a station, you are bombarded with a Super Mario Brothers-esque jingle. It's like you've reached another level in a game! On all types of trains too, from the subway, to the overground JR or Sanyo lines, to the monorails, to the wonderful high speed inter-city Shinkansen. ["ghostlike", indeed they are; wonderful description] Even buses and water transport have them. Each individual train seems to have its own jingle too, so you never really get sick of them. Strange experience!

Anyway, nice music. This would be good to have on phones while travelling on the subway, to block out all the 8 bit madness.

thanks dava
the 8 bit computer sound ambience has got me thinking...about how possible it might be to construct a symphony of sound from those elements alone (of course with the assistance of some heavy audio manipulation)

Tokyo
You should go to Tokyo with a microphone and record the real thing! Those sounds are everywhere. Overwhelming really sometimes. But Japan is truly a country worth visiting. Just not in the Summer; too hot and HUMID. Go during the Sakura [cherry blossom] season in the Spring.

station to station
Interesting soundscape and use of instruments...and things I'm guessing aren't instruments as such.
I can never leave sparse things alone and was playing a melody in my head to go over this but that's not to say that this is lacking in anything.
Cool track and enjoyed
cheers

i often find myself doing similar things when i listen to stuff too

would have been interesting to hear your melody to the train tracks but i imagine you have forgotten it now

I was thinking
that it sounded like an orchestra tuning up. Though this doesn't actually sound as dissonant as that can. I hear harp but I'm guessing there were no harps. Thanks.

What's this train stuff then?
You and Narad? Is this some sort of conspiracy?

Nice work Bryn.

Surprisingly quiet (on my system at least)

Cheers
