    Sounds more like an orchestral version to me. Try to make it more "bass-heavy". Some hoovering synth, played on a low note will probably do the job :) I'd also get rid of drums completely (or add some laid back, freeflowing percussion instead). Good job with having BITS vocals in since the track in itself sounds very "ambientish" (at least to me) :)

    @minuteforce,
    Slow tempo and pitched vocals remind me of witch house. Pretty good one :)

    @Derek,
    Thanks for the welcome. Glad to be here :D

    I agree. Needs more sustained notes :)

    I'll try it out! I don't feel like getting rid of the percussion because I feel like that's the meat of the song so far, and I don't think I'd be able to replace it with something else that holds the same oomph.

    Give it a try :) - a different kind of 'oomph' could be what's needed to push it into "ambient" territory

    Time for my entry! :D Used FL Studio 10 to make this.. I'm a big fan of ambient artists like Brian Eno and Radiohead, so I really loved making this..
    This is obviously the most experimental track I've ever made. ;) Super-slowed down samples, trippy beats, random breakdowns.. just can't express how much I loved making this.. :)

    Check it out... and yeah, suggestions are always welcome. I made this in a few hours only because I have an exam tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure this is my final entry.

    P.S - Headphones (or anything but laptop speakers) HEAVILY recommended.

    That's why I was excited for this round. Because I knew everyone would throw in some really pretty music. :)
