Some songs don't need a backstory.  I think this one speaks for itself.  It sounds like you're able to work your vocal manipulation magic on the string sounds.  Very cool.

Yes, at first "sight" this piece sounds like a malfunction, but finally all sounds and the rhythm seem to function very well and very well placed. Everything is perfect. The world is fine. A great way to start the day. Vielen Dank for that

cool track!
somewhat avant-jazz-like ...
I especially dig the way the track speeds up with that short dnb rhythm ...
It all sounds effortlessly complicated. How great!!!

Worry not, the voices will be back (that sounds slightly worrying in itself).

Love the string snippets mixed with the half time beat.

As I mentioned to Vince Giles back in 2014, I've always felt that serial music could be improved with a beat.

Dark and twisted, deeply creepy--well done!  (This really could be a wonderfully unsettling soundtrack.)

Wonderful eerie vibe from the strings, really good balance between being weird but still accessible.
