Some nights I have to suspend my disbelief and become unattached and live inside a world of pretension. Dreams seem to hold more resonance, the only temporary medicinal cure.

This really was pretty relaxing... sounds like something I could have seen in a movie. E.T. maybe. A nightly promenade, where thoughts wander, stars fall and strange lights appear on the night sky, and the people look in awe, naive to the wonders of the world we later take for granted...

If you're just listening to listen then this might feel a bit monotone, but for meditational music it's masterful. Or accompanied by some kind of narration; scene. Imagination. Dreams. Never goes too fast. Never really stays in the same place either. Impressed. And the description holds similar epiphanies. It's like... something that's long slumbered wakes up when you hear this.

Thanks for taking the time to leave such a detailed analysis of my track. My aim was to create a cute sounding kind of lullaby. A little bit sleepy/dreamy. It's made in a way where I want the listener to just hear it without much thought, more like meditation as you said. But also to escape from all of the political and wokeness of today's world. I prefer to sleep and pretend that nothing bad is happening anywhere, but then of course something happens that I cannot avoid that is almost like deliberate provocation. In the 90s I don't remember any of this at all, it was just so carefree, but it was also pre-Internet. I think the Internet, and people's overdependency on it, along with the exposure to every other's countries problems and conflicts, has magnified stress, but also given the political system the ideal platform to completely weaponise trivial matters. To criminalise the trivial. Before the Internet it wasn't possible to create a worldwide audience. This has proved both advantageous and disadvantageous. For example, junk science is weaponised now to manipulate social engineering in ways that are quite disturbing and could well ruin future happiness and freedoms.

This is a very professional sounding composition to me, this track is everything it needed to be, reminded me of something you'd find in a triple A JRPG, kicking it in the inn after slaying some bear sized slugs down by mushroom lake. Very impressed, great atmosphere.
