Today's prompt is "time." I know I used the clock ticking sound in vue de l'espace, but it's too good to not use. To supplement that, I recorded our own pendulum clock in the living room, the one I normally leave on if I'm not recording or podcasting.

This is the song that I feel properly represents this image, which has been the cover artwork for this entire Lenten challenge:

That this should mark the halfway point of this marathon run of composition prompts feels fitting somehow. I don't know why.

I imagined a stasis pod, similar to those of Kingdom Hearts, where one would be induced into sleep to have adverse effects on the mind removed.

The idea I had in mind for this is that anyone listening in could just let time pass by and find rest for however long they need. It's a piece that is mindful of the passage of time, but also helps ease it.

This one is interesting to me. It has a very positive vibe, which I feel is actually quite unusual in the context of time passing. I think it embodies happy anticipation, where most people focus on the boredom and the helplessness. I guess what I’m saying is, this is refreshing.

This may just be my opinion, but I also don’t think you need to apologize for using. The ticking clock. It’s not a theme that occurs just once in our lives. Ticking clocks are everywhere, all the time, always. And they just keep on ticking.

It’s such an overt and powerful theme that one can’t help but be inspired when considering it. In my song “A Chance Happening” I used a sound much like this one as a time keeper throughout the piece- it adds metaphorical depth.

i love it! as a person with machine fetish, the feel inside stasis pod is such unique experience, your track even make thing higher and deeper!

Pretty peaceful piece of music! I like it!

This really does capture the impression of being in stasis.

had to close my eyes for this one dawg
