Winter Crossing

A relaxed and warm generative ambient drone inspired by winter in Idaho.

I spent Christmas 2017 in Boise, Idaho.


They get proper seasons there. Winter is cold and, as you can see, they get snow.
The clouds move slowly there (clouds above Manchester race across the sky in comparison).
The place is friendly, warm and more relaxed.
This album is inspired by all of that.

The music is generative, as with all other The Ambient Visitor albums.
This album is based in the mysterious locrian mode (a personal favourite of mine) although, with the way this music is created, I could claim it was in any of several modes. It just is, OK?!

Division & Conjunction

One continuous generative ambient drone.

Slow and drifting, deeply ambient and peaceful.

The way this music is made, the way it sounds, there could be no better cover - as the planets drift (well, seemingly drift - they're going very, very fast) around the sun, on one cold November morning, just before sunrise, and just for a few moments, Venus, Jupiter and Earth lined up. It was a magical thing to witness.

Whispers in the Wind

A peaceful generative ambient drone in two parts.

Each note plays in its own loop. The length of each loop is slightly different so the notes interact in different ways, creating motifs and swells, but never quite repeating itself.

This album is slightly different in this regard. There are two distinct sections and they each start at the very beginining so you hear the original run of notes that create the whole track.

Released 11 November 2017

All music written and produced by The Ambient Visitor.
Recorded in September 2017 at MCos, Manchester.

Reviews of Whispers in the Wind

Beyond beautiful... this album leaves me silent and speechless. Is it just me or do these two tracks really have a sort of winter/christmas atmosphere..? Soothing light drones with low bass and icy twinkling gently floats by.. Right away at first listen, this album touched me, entered my soul. Thanks Brin for yet anóther masterpiece...

About The Ambient Visitor

The Ambient Visitor

Deep and mysterious longform ambient music.

The music is generative:
Each note plays in a loop. The length of each loop is slightly different so while the music may vary slightly, it never quite repeats itself.

I also make music under the name Bing Satellites, The Lovely Moon, Ghost Harmonics and Blocker.
