Lovely. Really clean reverb on this which is mighty impressive. Nice glitchy bit crushed drums. Tune is incredibly relaxing, though it's rhythm really helps to propel it from a passive experience to something that is incredibly engaging and full of energy. As a meditative piece it's positively motivating. That drone from the minute mark is beautiful. The syncopation in pattern, the use of call and response, every aspect of this track is working in harmony. This is genuinely a sublime piece of ambient music. The mix is perfect stereo with a deft touch in pan and delay. Clean as a whistle, eq is superbly balanced. To find fault with your work on this would be a fools errand. This is for all intents and purposes a perfect recording. Well done.

Holy fook! Truly a mountain top compliment!

It's more than encouraging since I intentionally did no editing and very little post processing. Just straight live takes with just a touch of polish on the mains before bouncing. I know some people might think me arrogant but I really DO listen to critique. I purposely thought twice about all my settings BEFORE I hit record. I'm guessing it's why the main instrument didn't need a multi-band comp and the reverb didn't muddy up. I applied what I had learned and it worked.

It's my belief that, a well thought out recording/performance, shouldn't need hours of production afterwards. I still have a long way to go but this was one of many first steps I've been attempting to really hone in my technique, as to get consistently GOOD results with little post production needed.

Thanks again for the feedback. I Really appreciate it!

The instrumentation sounds ambient and tribal with how metallic it sounds. The progression is good and nice to.
