Wow !!. This made me sit up. You have captured that feeling of insomnia for me when lots of ideas are whizzing around in your head in a tapestry of sound. The production is spot on. Well Done

Thank you! I’m glad the piece had the intended effect. This really came out with the swimming in thoughts feeling for me.

Agreed with the assessment on capturing a restless night…there were even small just detectable noises…could be water dripping from a faucet, voices heard but just indecipherable…or the simple sounds a structure makes when everything else has gone silent.

I’m a big fan of working samples to produce audio artifacts. I was very lucky that the samples were cooperative in producing the small noises and feedbacks that form such a large part of the atmosphere in this track! I can only do what the samples are willing to bend to. ;)

Very dreamy opening, quite dynamic, perhaps a bit near-red on the levels to my ears, but I am often wrong about such things.

I like the denseness of the mix, but the pacing of the vocal sample is an artistic choice I might vary. The song and spoken word mix is trippy and interesting.

This is all very psychedelic in some cool obscure Euro band way rather than in some Californian thick watchband way.

I think it works, but you could perhaps do more with structure. The percussion thing which comes in is so nice, but the drones embattle that a bit, when a more quiet jazz interlude might be more fun.

i like it, but something about it makes be want to hear it panning wildly and randomly around my head

it gets interesting when the beat comes in and applies a bit of structure to the chaos… it works
