Cinematic indeed and hypnotic but also very beautiful. This genre is kind of a knee trembler for me. Love it!

very nice Scott - like how it builds up -
and the mysterious vocal - really captures a mood of dreamy other-worldness…..

A great build-up and captivating from the start. There is a lot going on, but all very subtle and not trying to compete for attention. Very beautifully done.

Dramatic indeed, what always impresses me is your attention to detail great stuff.

Cheers DM. Yeah I love the little details in a track… you wonder though whether people will pick up on them. Sometimes it takes a few listens.

Oh this is wonderful, Scottie. It gets right into the bloodstream. I know how I would use it in a film. But it generates such a specific mood and atmosphere that it’s more than enough to listen to it as simply a great piece of music. xxxx

Epic, cinematic — the warm organic tone of snowflake’s voice soothing against the industrial ambience created by the pound and echo. I felt this. Bravo sir!

Now this is bloody nice.

And I’m taking some liberties with language here, because “nice” couldn’t possibly cover everything I want to say; but it’s all I can think of.

Beautifully produced. I love how the little synth sounds and tics and glitchy bits are balanced just right - and your ear for how to build up a track and scale it down again.

Usually when I see so many comments already, I won’t leave another when I’ve nothing new to add. But making an exception for this one. Cos I just have to say that it’s beautiful. Man.
