Review: Harmonics of Frequency Modulation – Anti Gravity (Ambient)

This review covers the dark ambient track Harmonics of Frequency Modulation – Anti Gravity.

This track was released in 2007 online for free streaming.

The main feature of this track is the long sweeping droning sounds throughout. The automated frequencies add plenty of variety throughout even though you’re getting roughly the same kind of sound throughout the entire thing.

This is sort of the kind of music you might hear in games like Doom 64 or Hybrid Heaven. It’s that long modulated synth sound that has that mix of sci-fi mystery and horror.

Another interesting element is the fact that this track is pretty long. It clocks in at just over eight minutes. Strangely enough, I thought it was about the right length – perhaps because it’s so easy to get lost in the track.

The wind chimes sound was certainly a nice touch. It added an interesting high frequency sound to the track.

Overall, this track was pretty good. It has a nice sense of horror and mystery that was interestingly sci-fi like. It was long, but easy to get lost in it. The main sound was a bit repetitive, but the constantly evolving cutoff made this track continually interesting. So, a pretty good track overall.
