The reedy instrument was 'Zourna' by Safwan Matni, there are a couple of loops made with Tekky's ZeNeRyC Free, and some arps and bass done with ZebraCM. And some reverb from QuikQuak's Fusion Field, my prize from last month's contest

Ah. An OT fan. Which is your favourite album? I think Waterfall Cities was the best thing they did. Some of the layering and progressions on there were just inspired.

It's strange, there were places where I felt that the flute sounded a bit flat, but if I raised it a semitone it was too sharp - I wonder if the scale I was trying for was not a 12-semitone one. Something to investigate further one day!

I don't have Waterfall Cities - perhaps I should get a copy. I think my favourites are Erpland and Strangeitude, possibly because they are the first ones I bought. TBH I found after a while their albums seemed to be all rather similar, but perhaps I need to revisit some of their catalogue. I always enjoy it when an Ozrics track pops up on random shuffle

Thank you! I arrived at the name kryptonaut via a slightly convoluted path - I think literally it probably means something like 'secret sailor' which doesn't describe me at all! Perhaps a 'voyager through hidden things' though, which might tie in with my previous obsessions with astronomy, microscopy and macro photography
