    Default soundscapes

    does anyone have any experience with long nature-sounding soundscapes? ive been asked to create the sound for a multi-sensory art experience. its called 'other winter world' and its for our local arts festival. the event basically involves us booking out a big hall, which we will kit out with a fabric forest, crazy smells, berrys and shit to eat off fake bushes, crazy tactile stuff, and i VJ etc. and im in charge of the 'natural' sound of this environment. im going to a meeting tonight to get some visual representation to work with.
    i dont really have experience with soundscapes so if anyone has any pointers im keen

    this is not really relevant but i think its awesome, it turns into a dnb gig later in the night! chur

    look into ambient dubstep imo.

    Geiom, Scuba, Headhunter, Appleblim, Emalkay, Shackleton, Burial, Martyn etc

    i wanna be fully reponsible for the sound. dubstep is genre i could use to represent the sound im looking for, but id rather make the sound myself.like, dubstep is doing that within its medium, but i dont want that medium, so, dubstep without the dub or the step, just all the bits in between.
    i dont wanna be DJing, i wanna be producing crazy noise live, im just lacking direction and method. i have the massive synth on ableton and ive been messing around with it, im gettin the sounds i want

    Massive is good but IMO use Circle. Its waaaaay better for live stuff imo.

    You need a keyboard (tho the keys on your comp would be ok) and some knobs to fiddle with. Then just have a few synth layers in ableton as well as a few sample layers (2 of each is good).

    Get some nice long ambient samples and perhaps some simple beats and definately some percussion loops (bongos etc) and layer those up n mix them in and out with the synth (one lead and one bass).

    Thats what I'd do anyway.
