  1. So the first month of Daily Ambient is now complete. I have so far made 31 tracks. Not quite one each day, as it's been tough to keep up with a young kid. :) Anyways, if you like the previous things I've posted, head over and check out the new stuff! dailyambient.com
  2. Here are the tracks from this past week. I finally was able to get the iTunes podcast setup, so if you're into that have a look! I'm getting quite some traffic on the site too which is exciting! I've discovered the magic of Reddit haha. r/ambientmusic and r/chillmusic are gold mines you guys should checkout. I've also made some tweaks and optimizations on the site, so it should load a bit faster now. Hurrah for jsmin. :p Here's the podcast: on iTunes Day 10 | Sands Shift http://wp.me/p3yOqP-gj Day 11 | Curious Forms http://wp.me/p3yOqP-gm Day 12 | Days Moving Quickly By http://wp.me/p3yOqP-gr Day 13 | Ripples Along a Plane http://wp.me/p3yOqP-gw Day 14 | A Rush of Blood http://wp.me/p3yOqP-gB Day 15 | A Feeling of Remembrance http://wp.me/p3yOqP-gE

  4. Creating something everyday is multifaceted challenge which presents a lot of opportunities, as well as hurdles. Some issues are easy to imagine, where as others appear only after a direction has been established. Based on last year's work I knew a few issues that present themselves in advance. Last year I hosted the entire project on Tumblr, which I found out about halfway through was quite insufficient. It was simple enough, but there are issues with audio on Tumblr, and sometimes the artwork would vanish mysteriously. This year I put more planning into the platform, and went with wordpress. From there I can publish to many platforms at once, as well as create a feed for a podcast. A little planning goes a lot way. Limitations With Daily Ambient I have created a framework with limitations, rules, and sensibilities which act as a structure from which to build. These limits and rules need not be strict, but having them in place does a lot to aid in the construction of new work, and to glue the separate pieces together to form a cohesive body of work. They also help to eliminate the "blank page" effect. That paralysis felt when starting a new piece of work. Each day tends to evolve from the previous in terms of process. Inspiration Inspiration is much less an issue than you might imagine when working inside a framework. Creativity can be wielded very deliberately and effectively when you have a solid direction to jump from. This is the strength of the framework approach. Once there is a "universe" to work within interesting opportunities reveal themselves. Time A big challenge is simple time allotment. I have a very young kid, so free time tends to be hard to come by. The work tends to be done in the evenings. Over the course of last year's project, I was able to get the process of writing, rendering and publishing down to about 1.5 hours. Most of that time is spent writing. Artwork The artwork is a challenge in itself. Last year the idea came about very organically. Over a few evenings I recorded live ambient tracks, and thought it would be cool to make a tumblr page out of them. Tumblr offered a space for an image with the track and so I had to find something. An old harddrive had a bunch of images of doors I had taken on a vacation to Greece, and so that became the theme. This year I wanted to dig deeper into the possibilities , and so spent a few weeks trying different options. Again I wanted to create a framework which fulfilled several criteria. To be effective it needed to: Be quick to create. Nothing too involved or time consuming. Be open enough to afford experimentation. I didn't want to get sick of it or get backed into a corner creatively. Be interesting as a system. They all need to work together and feel a part of the same body of work. After quite some trials, I decided to jump from the idea of cinemagraphs in the "subtle gifs" thread here. I chose to stylize the clips with a 2 color limit to simplify, but also to give each a more impressionistic feeling. The result is flexible, but recognizable. The video clips are easy to make. I can take a camera out and get 10-15 in an outing, and then pass them though a few filters and render a gif. The result is quite interesting and simple. I hope that you all find the project to be interesting and inspiring! For me it's a great way to dig deeper into a specific direction in music, and art. Stay tuned for more from Daily Ambient. - Ryan
  5. So I've start with Daily Ambient 2013! The first day is here >> http://dailyambient.com/2013/06/01/day-1-soaking-rain/ It's been raining non-stop all day and I couldn't resist sticking the field recorder out on the window ledge for a bit. :) I'll try to post each day here, but if you'd like to follow along on a different platform, here are a few I'm pushing to. https://twitter.com/dailyambient http://dailyambient.tumblr.com http://www.facebook.com/DailyAmbient https://soundcloud.com/dailyambient Enjoy!
