I just picked up Hollow Sun's ALTAERION and to get to know it better I created this track using ALTAERION only. Feedback greatly appreciated.

Nice drone. Lots of metallic scrapings and clangings. Broken clocks and wind chimes are amongst the goodies on offer here. Oh yes, that creepy atmosphere is superb.

Good work :)

Oh, it's just a hippie word for appreciation. Sorry for spreading confusion (again).

Thanks D.H. Miltz for the feedback.

And to Zombie Queen. I wasn't confused by your post. I was stating that I dig the fact that you dig my track. The question mark was there because I wasn't sure(almost certain) that my reply didn't make sense. And now I know. :hihi:

Excellent soundscape, very sinister and full of tension. Reminds me of classic science fiction / horror soundtracks in a very enjoyable way :)

I've picked up a few of the Hollow Sun laboratory machines but haven't found a way to get them into a track yet... inspiring to hear what this one can do!

Thanks a lot vom.

I feel like I'm going to use ALTAERION quite a bit. A lot of the time when I get a new instrument I try to make something using only that so I'm forced to see what it can do. I found ALTAERION to be much more versatile than I thought it would be. I bought a few other Hollow Sun instruments after using this one, but I haven't had time to use them yet.
