At first it was really irritating, and to some extent depressing, having non-stop, 24/7 ringing in my ear. But I slowly started to learn how to deal with it. Besides being terribly annoying, this issue caused me to stop enjoying instrumental (mostly piano) songs, because the sharp sound of the notes would aggravate it.
Because of this, I started listening to those songs with a background mask of nature sounds; ambience sounds if you will. Then I found out there was a whole world of people on YouTube producing awesome videos of some of my favorite tracks merged with soothing rain, wind, and other sounds.
Even though I enjoyed most of these videos, they always seemed to have something missing. Either the sound effects were too low in volume, the length of the video was too short, the repetitive nature of the tracks wasn’t right, amongst other stuff. That’s when I decided to start creating my own videos. I already had the license and knowledge of Adobe Premiere, and I used to loved mixing tracks back in the ’00s when Acoustica Audio Mixer was a thing.
So I only had to make the decision to produce some of the best mixed ambience videos on YouTube. And that’s how Kingdom Ambience was born.
