BPM: 90bpm
Sound source=Chromaphone VST instrument (Applied Acoustics Systems)
Sound processing: “Noises” VST instrument (Audio Thing)
Reverb: Fog Convolver (Audio Thing)

Note: the impulse responses used in the reverb were provided by the Open Acoustic Impulse Response (Open AIR) Library under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license ( Further information:
“The abbey of St Mary was mostly destroyed during the dissolution under the rule of Henry VIII and now only ruins remain. These ruins can be found in the Museum Gardens adjacent to the river Ouse in York city. Virtual models of this now derelict church were built using measurements taken from scaled plans and other sources of architectural evidence. Impulse responses were then created using ray-based room acoustic modelling software. Three different models of the church were used with increasing levels of detail in their geometric structure, referred to as Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3. The work was carried out as part of a Bachelor of Engineering project at the Audiolab in the University of York.”

Notes: I started by creating custom sounds in “Chromaphone” (bells & pads) and recorded them as short samples. I then imported these samples into “Noises” as a user-made sample bank. Next, I manipulated the samples within “Noises” to create the basic ambient track. Finally, I added reverb FX via “Fog Convolver”, utilising impulse responses downloaded from the OpenAir website ( I was considering the question of a title for the track—-and coming up with things like “Spectral Village”—-but then realised it was Remembrance Sunday, and so opted for “Armistice Ambience”.
