Just d/led it. Only listened to a minute or 2 but will stick it on my mp3 player and listen to this week. First impression - very favourable in a synthetic instrumental-y way. I'll post back when I've had a proper listen.

Listened to it this morning.

Quite short (about 19-20 mins?) but it all fits together well, style and sound wise. Its not the kind of thing I'm an expert on (Jarre and Oldfield are really the only 2 instrumentalists I listen to) but I enjoyed it. Some nice sounds chosen and the use of the speech at the end was pretty effective.

Clear and well recorded too. I did wonder whether you'd overcooked the mastering on the piece between about 8 and 10 mins in - there seemed to be a bit of digital distortion and buzzing on the headphones I was using (a decent hifi pair, not buds).

Definitely worth a d/l anyway. Can you give us some idea what instruments you used?

Yeah the distortion is on purpose.
I'm a big fan of digital durge and like that nasty digital distortion (its sooooo dirty). I put a bit of delay on it to to give a bit of natural feedback on it too.
I had to do it on a least one section laugh
It sounds even worse on bad headphones - like a wasp in a tunnel.
I figured not many people would share my love of noise so I kept it to just one section.

Yeah it is a little short - but it felt right - it flows well and I didn't want to hurt that flow.
Think of it as side A.

The instruments, voice - Clavanova - bongos - fruity loops.

Thanks for giving it a listen,

Martin.

I've only had time for a quick overview so far, but I really like what I've heard. I'll post back as soon as I've had a more in-depth listen.............
Based on what I've heard, though, I'm looking forward to hearing more.
