I've started a new project "GX". Partly inspired by brutalist architecture that I spent much of my working life in. As many were ex telecoms operations buildings they were if anything, drearier inside than outside. Long grey corridors. Primitive & synthetic as most of instruments are from the 70s - analogue monosynths only. Bit of a break from what I usually do, this one features drums after having given up with any kind of drums nearly 40 years ago.

A lot of subtle changes happen in 3:39 mins or so.
Well done indeed.

Haha, that doesn't sound like an old telecom building. It is more
of an outdated Amiga computer with the end of its battery.

Ok, after the Amiga intro it gets a bit more musical and dreary -
that sounds more like an old concrete building. Overall a bit
apocalyptic, very well done! :tu:
