I made this in December. It's experimental in style, and about 11 minutes long:

I enjoyed it. There are some great little melodic twists and turns on this and the sounds are very interesting. This kept me entertained for 11 minutes. Three times so far.

Good work :)

Here's a description about the 'making of...'

It is very enjoyable, doesn't seem that long to me either.
The sounds are peculiar, and there's enough variation to make it seem like new stuff is happening all the time.

After reading the "making of..." I understand, and it seems a lot more complicated now :)
I just got Komplete, so will be experimenting with Reaktor, I already knew it's very powerful. This is awesome, man!

Love it :)

Thanks for the comments.

The Kore/Reaktor effects are very sensitive to parameter changes, that's why it always seems a bit different, and yet the same (as long as one change things slowly). The pitch glides are the most obvious effects and easy to overuse. This was scored in a 15-et scale, so the pitch is always a bit off anyway.

Sad to see that Kore is no more, it is still my main tool.

I like to set up stacks or stages of effects and change them while some automata plays the notes - I don't consider the exact notes or pitches to be that important, just the timbre and pulse of the sound.
