I recorded this one three days after “Apparition.” I didn’t realize it till later, but the two pieces have a lot of musical content in common; certain drones and chord progressions that just happened to be stuck in my head, I guess. But due to the different patches loaded, the character of each piece is quite different.

This is one of my favorite ones. It evokes a barren, arctic alien landscape in my mind.
