A drone piece from my newly released album, Float

This one is mostly the ALM Busy Circuits Akemie's Castle -- a Eurorack module built around new old stock Yamaha OPL3 FM chips, as used on the Sound Blaster 16 in the early 90s. There's also the barest hint of a wind turbine field recording from Detunized at the end. VST FX include:

Delay/reverb: Tape-201, Twangstrom, Replika XT
Filter/EQ: WOW2, Uhbik-Q, Toneboosters EQ 4, Overtone GEQ
Saturation/dirt: RC-20 Retro Color, Spectre, Cassette
Dynamics: Presswerk, MagicDeathEye
Other: Bitwig's pitch shifter

Patch notes for the full album are here.

I like it; I have to admit feeling relief around 1:30, as the emerging bass roundness and depth were like a resolved missing contrast, if that makes sense.
