#Writing #Music Monday: Ambient Symphony by zero-project

[cover] zero-project - Ambient symphonyI am shocked and dismayed to discover that, apparently, I have never put stalwart Free Culture composer zero-project up in a Writing Music Monday post.

Allow me to rectify that grievous oversight.

Zero-project is a Greek composer and musician, and he (or she) has been putting out Attribution-licensed works for better than half a decade. He leans toward New Age music, but its complexity and depth makes up for the cheese factor, far more often than not.

Ambient Symphony is a very new-age-y piece, and yet I like it. (If you know me, you know that I pronounce “new age” to rhyme with “sewage” almost always.)

It’s melodic, not super-repetitive, and all nine tracks work together to create a coherent whole.

But be warned: the irritating tropes of New Age-y-ness are here. The echo effects, the nature sounds, the cheesy-synth, the whole bit. So if that automatically puts you off, now you know. If you think you can let the quality of this work get past your defenses on those fronts, however, give it a try. Because it is worth it.
