Creating Ambience was a unique experience for Charlie North. He often starts the creative process by seeking out inspiration from the world around him. However, for this project, Charlie sought to sit and be in the moment, letting the sounds and atmosphere guide his creative process.
The outcome of this approach is a departure from his previous works, with a focus on atmospheric and ambient soundscapes that invite the listener into a world of ever-evolving sound. The EP consists of three tracks, each with a different intention.
The first track, "Meditation," reflects the calm and clarity achieved through mindfulness. It features layers of ethereal pads and soft, drifting piano melodies, creating a peaceful and introspective atmosphere for the listener.
The second track, "Focus," is intended to help the listener concentrate and focus, whether studying or working on a creative project. It features a repeating pattern of gentle piano and soft, pulsing tones designed to promote a state of calm alertness that allows for clear, focused thinking.
The final track, "Sleep," invites the listener to drift off into a restful slumber. It's built around sustained pads and drones, meant to lull the mind and body into a state of deep rest.
Overall, this EP takes the listener on a sonic journey through states of mindfulness, focus, and rest. With no beats or rhythmic elements, Charlie invites the listener to lose themselves in the enveloping atmosphere of ever-shifting sound. He hopes that it provides a sense of calm and tranquility to all who listen.
