Again your loop is beautifully seamless! I do hear some strain of hope in this endless knot of existence. Stress and despair may be companions of the time but something pricks at the heart like the musician plucking at the piano strings. That is not all there is... You've created a lovely setting to shine that glimmer of hope. Life continues! hard as it may be. It's Life! and be damned if we're going to give it up! This song brings other stories to mind Book of Eli being one of them.
The strings could get tiring and sometimes seem to but then the burden of their constant work is lifted by another part of the song and I'm able to go on listening. Excellent job in capturing this in music! It's not a huge cinematic piece but it is no less full and the depth is continual. You've packed a lot in to that 1 minute and 29 seconds.
