Unison – Ambient & Downtempo (MIDI Kit)


Ambient is a catch-all term for any kind of music wherein the atmosphere is more important than any specific element.

This can be achieved in many ways, though it is often done through the use of large reverbs and delay, soft or muted timbres, pad-style synths, and subtle textures that evolve over time.

Anything that adds to the expansive, spacious—even meditative—quality of the music is favoured.

Suspended triads are very common, both sus2 and sus4 types.

Extended chords that use the 9th and 11th degrees are very common. In particular, add9 chords and add11 (AKA add4) chords are favoured.

Major chords with the #11th degree can be used to great effect.

Depending on the other degrees involved, the #11th produces a mysterious, sometimes ‘edgy’ quality.

The open-ended, undefined nature of these chords make them great choices for ambient music.
