Repetitive soundscape thingy - yep, I agree!

I enjoyed the sound combos in there, but just wanted a little contrasting section towards the middle somewhere!

Could use a little EQ in the upper mids on the loud synth. A little too repetitive for my taste. And with that one annoying synth, it was a difficult listen.

I don't mind the so-called repetitive nature of it.

On the contrary, it was very Mantra-like, and the forward-progression kept it interesting. I especially liked how when the beat started to arrive it sounded like the whole thing would fall apart. However, instead, it actually took an immediately comfortable and cohesive form. If anything, imo, it ends just when it was about to get really interesting. I can 'hear' a whole piece that dropped off the back of this, with it also serving as a reprise that gets secreted-away at the end of an album.

Thanks el-bo for the nice comment, means a lot. I actually do like to let things fall apart, and then maybe suddenly not. I have complete and beatifull tracks just after the fadeout :hihi: (i wish)

I mostly liked it in a weird way! I listen to lo-fI also.

I think it could use some subtle weaving of other sounds to keep interest.

Thanks for the listen and the feedback. I agree, maintaining interest should be my main focus. Not playing with new synths or effects. I blame GAS :hihi:
