This piece is again created on the borrowed Yamaha SU700, however instead of a rhythmic piece, this is instead aiming towards a more ambient piece. Although I have made lots of music like this before, I have not done so in a while, and I forgot how calming it is to me. This piece was spontaneous and fell together in a matter of minutes before I recorded it. It totally allowed me to escape from the world and be anxiety free, perfectly calm, a state I was apparently in much need of being in. It's one of the few ways I find I am able to do so, along with some exercise, and why I am drawn to music.

Inspired by my most recent visit to Tasmania for Mona Foma festival, where I experienced many new musicians, and rediscovered the childish joy of sounds, both intentional and unintentional, natural and man-made, without overthinking the nature of those sounds.

This is so hypnotic and alluring, but it's got bite too - kind of like the score from the original Drakengard.  Lovely work!

This is a nice piece. Hypnotic with a feeling of tension. Cool use of the SU700 too! Seems like most of the youtube vids of that unit are for like 90s house haha.

It's funny you say this, because I find that the workflow of this sampler is incredibly unsuited to 90's house music compared to most other samplers! Given what I'd seen on youtube, I was quite surprised by what it's led me to create.
