It's not really that ambient, but that's the best classification I could come up with.

Here's more music based off of samples created from raw waveforms in Mathematica: if you'd like to learn more about this, check out my previous track "Prometheus Factory". These samples were then pieced together in Audacity (I am currently at college and do not have access to Tracktion), which I now know is not at all a good idea. (Frankly, synthesizing sound with Mathematica isn't such a hot idea either, but I find it kind of fun, and it is certainly versatile).

This piece originated from the backwards-sounding loop that comes in after the first one. I created it almost by accident, but I ended up basing the entire piece around it. The punchy drum sound that is present for most of the piece arose accidentally when I clipped the original sine-wave far more than intended, creating a highly distorted sound.

Constructive criticism (or praise, or questions, or cryptic crossword puzzle clues, whatever) would be appreciated. And make sure to check out my other music! Some of it is quite different from this.

Your method is intrinsic to music, and it may although be esoteric, this is still fun and interesting to listen to. Your title is very fitting too, and I like how you reverted it back to it's original form at the end.
You mentioned drones and minimalism in my review, which I am also interested in.
So keep it coming.
