Episode 27 of The Ambient Vault podcast features my special guest Six Missing. Six Missing is the ambient, experimental, and electronic endeavor of multi-instrumentalist and award-winning sound designer, TJ Dumser. Often drawing inspiration from meditations and dreams, Dumser centers himself in the present moment to offer evolving sonic landscapes that allow the listener to drift away. These cinematic soundscapes are intended to be listened to with your eyes closed or as mood music for your favorite activity. The magic in any moment can only be found in the Here and Now. Be present, be here, be well.
TJ has given me the great honor of debuting his track, “Hobble Down” on this episode of the podcast! Scroll down to learn about the inspiration and story surrounding its creation.

[I almost always approach music from a cinematic viewpoint. Putting a mental narrative to it all helps make it make sense to me and hopefully to the listeners. So for this track I had envisioned being ceaselessly pursued by a monster in my nightmares only to jolt myself awake and find that I'm standing in the middle of the neighborhood street barefoot under an orange street light. The lights illuminate the smokey, foggy street all the way to the bend where my eyes finally focus on a silhouette, the monster has found me and begins gaining on me.”
This track feels like the soundtrack that would accompany that scene. I've titled it "Hobble Down."]
