Dilaudid

By Tone Matrix on November 4, 2018 5:48 pm

First off the good news is I was able to complete my surgery with no issues!  The bad news... Owwwwww! I might have sounded excited to get painkillers last weekend.  I was being a bit silly of course but the one percoset I took after getting home from the hospital gave me more side effects than benefits.  Soooo, yea those are no bueno for me.  But as you can see with the title, I was pretty fond of Dilaudid while in recovery at the hospital.  I didn't get too much of it but wow was that a welcome wave of calm when they gave it to me.  The echoey piano drips are my interpretation of it taking effect.    I was worried I wouldn't be able to work on a track this week since the first 48hrs were pure hell.  Constant pain and no sleep. I usually sleep like a moron on my stomach.  But resttricted to my back, means 45min cat naps instead of a good 6-8hr sleep.  Thankfully Ibuprofen has at least helped with insane swelling and bruising.  Pardon my long incoherent description.  I haven't slept more than 2hrs straight since Thursday.  Also pardon the repetitive ambientness of this track.  I have absolutely no energy and feel a bit delirious!  But!  I'm thankful everything worked out ok.  Now to recover for approximately 6 weeks yikes  Thanks for reading this abomination, your kind words and listening.

Ouch indeed! But mellow and soothing music.

A very nice painkiller soundtrack, sounds like the calm setting in.
Wishing you a speedy recovery, and hopefully less pain soon.

I was kinda on edge this morning and your song calmed me down, thank you! Nice relaxing atmosphere with beautiful lingering pads. Glad to hear your surgery went well, I hope your recovery is swift!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes and listening smile  Still hobbling around but feeling much better and only needing the occasional ibuprofen now rather than the toxic painkillers.  Although getting into and out of my desk chair is quite the mission tongue  Thanks again!

so glad to hear it went well - may waves of pain relief and calm wash over you!  i'm just now sitting down to work on this weeks track & struggling to get still enough to do it - but if you could produce something so beautiful this week after all you've been experiencing - i feel motivated now to stop procrastinating!!! 

peace peace peace - heal heal heal

Sorry for the pain, but glad the surgery was a success.  I would also say you've managed to produce an excellent track considering the circumstances.  Very calm and relaxing vibes.  Get well soon!

Great music to match the title. It really builds very nicely with a lot of powerful pads and melodies adding in.  Definitely has the feeling of slowly sinking and being enveloped into a sedated state. The final fading of the instruments feels like you're entering that last state of oblivion or sleep.

Glad to hear the surgery went well. Hoping the recovery speeds up this week.  Sounds like torture not getting any solid sleep.
