Detachment

Morning!
I write this as a quick submission before I've got to go off n do other life things (one of which is play in a warhammer tournament so its not all bad). But this this week has been a killer in terms of time. That said, I refuse to leave you high and dry. 90% of this track was composed on the train to London (and back) to protest Donny T's first UK visit. Nothing says you are welcome here than 250,000 people messing up your travel plans.
The track itself is probably the first time I've not used any hardware on something, its all edited Ableton presets. It also had a second track of drums, I was going for an early Autechre sound (Incunabula / Amber were some of my favourite albums in my younger years)... But I couldn't quite get it to hang together, then I switched the track off and, while being a lot less 'hands in the air', it was nice to just have a more chilled piece with only a light touch on the beats. Obvs with more time I'd have stuck a billion more layers (or done something totally different) but here we are. Enjoy!
Oh, art!

Even gimped as you were, it's still pretty awesome.

It actually feels like a train ride, with a little something special at the end of it. It can fit a story just fine.
