This is what's going on in my head right now.

It doesn't do much for the first twelve and a half minutes but once it does, you won't notice.

I just wish I could turn it off.

Cool, brain soaking stuff.
I don't know why, but the title had me expecting something a little less dramatic. In the first 15-30 minutes, it almost sounds like a symphony of record players (that need to be turned over to side B but have been long forgotten about) and I'm listening to it all with burning Styrofoam in my brain. I occasionally hear moments of musicality that drift in and out like an AM tuner, but they are distant and unreachable to anything but the imagination. The last 15 minutes were the most interesting to me, but I managed to keep this playing for the full 60 this morning despite my brain's plea's for sanity.
So, let me in on how this was made?

Ok, finally found the time to dedicate to an uninterrupted listen.

I actually really took to the early part of the track... :lol: by early I mean the first 47 minutes! That creaky, ratchety, organic, wind-swept, ship tossing on a stormy sea stuff was really easy to digest for me. Not that the later part was a huge departure, a few synthy bits, some combiness, a wonderful shuttle lift off, but the earlier stuff was just, I dunno, haunting in a soothing way, if that makes sense?

What is going on is actually tough to explain. I was playing with my modular and found that being distracted as I've been has made it tough to think about signal flow and I kept patching things where they didn't belong. The result was interesting enough so I ran it through the grain cloud delay I made in Reaktor and tweaked around for an hour. The odd moments of tonality you hear are from my voltage controlled BBD delay.

Thanks for the listen, I know it's tough to find the time for an entire hour of listening but I think it's pretty effective as background noise drawing your attention every now and then.

Very enjoyable....like getting my cerebral cortex massaged by sand.
