Dark ambient evokes certain feelings and emotions in the listener, not only in the mind, but it also appeals to our subconscious. A particular song can open up a certain level of subconsciousness and expand your awareness. This effect is achieved through low-frequency sounds and resonances.
ANTON SIBIL ON THE BIRTH AND ESSENCE OF DARK AMBIENT
Dark ambient is a subspecies of ambient and experimental music itself. Anton Valerievich notes that this style is characterized by minimalistic sounds without emotional outbursts, accompanied by sharp sound moments to add a tense atmosphere. Such tunes evoke a hypnotic effect.
The presence of cyclic sounds, the presence of such natural elements as: the sounds of the forest, the sound of rain, the rustling of leaves, the sounds of animals and birds. There are no laws in such compositions, the author decides on the sequence and severity of the melody.
Also dark ambient gives soft beats, disturbing synth interventions and gloomy samples. This genre can be unsettling to the untrained person. However, such sounds can immerse you in the universe flows of your subconscious. With the right questions for yourself and organic music flows, your subconscious mind will open up and you will get answers.
SIBIL ANTON ABOUT THE INFLUENCE OF DARK AMBIENT ON ART
According to Sibil Anton’s subjective worldview, it is sometimes difficult for people in the arts to find inspiration. There can be hundreds of ideas inside the mind that cannot be structured.
In this situation, music, the right kind of music, is a great help. A certain flow of musical wave is able to structure thoughts, ideas and to calm the inner chaos.
Dark ambient plunges into the far reaches of the subconscious, helps to understand how to show through art what it is impossible to tell with words, without losing the essence of your idea. When presenting your idea to the world, this music will help not to miss details and not to lose important elements of your idea.
