Awwh thanks. I was lost in the sound- if it translates for someone else, that's a win.

nice atmosphere, commendable restraint, a bit short for my taste, but still very good :tu:

The funny thing is that I originally uploaded it at about twice the length, but re-upped a shorter version as I felt weird asking people to listen to ten minutes of my alpha-wavey droning. I'm amused that both responses have grumbled politely about it being too short.

It all depends what your aims are I suppose, keeping the length down is definitely a valid strategy for getting listens and comments on here. I'm not sure its the right move musically for this type of track (imo). I agree it probably seems like a bit of an ego trip within the context of this forum to go posting up some 10+ minute drones, but fuck it, folks who are into it will understand :D Anyway, don't listen to me, I'm a fucking dinosaur! 3-4 minute drones are the next big thing for all I know, but I thought I would give some feedback re duration because that is what would stop me listening to this track for pure pleasure. Keep them coming though :tu:

Yeah, you put your finger on it- it's a big ask, I've heard a lot of droney stuff where literally nothing happens for 10 minutes at a time, and I didn't want to be one of those people.

I'm always trying to make sounds that I want to hear, but I get misgivings about inflicting them on others. The feedback was useful and interesting and will be duly noted, of course. I clearly need to learn me some drone etiquette :hihi:
