Welkom / Wilkommen @eric.daubney@gmail.com  - your ambient analog synthesizer work sounds very good! Impressive gear you have! Looking forward to hear more from your music.

Hi @eric.daubney@gmail.com ,
I listenend with interest to your track, several times. Without giving enough attention to the title it initially gave me a distant feeling of what might become something like Apocalypse now. When I noticed your SoundCloud labeling i.a. 'relax' and 'meditation' I could have know better, but I am not that wrong when what appeared to be your 'drone track' reminded me of a helicopter. I find it a little hard to reconcile that sound with relaxation and meditation, certainly because you repeat it (apart from the middle piece) time and again. As an unexpected effect it works in the beginning and might lift you up but later on I find it a bit disturbing. Maybe only a very (!) light version of the wing-beat would be nicer for meditation. In stead I would prefer some more musical 'solution' here and there (or towards the end) to provide a tonal sunray or star twinkle. That would bring the listener to an even higher level of mindfulness. Your sythesizer work is fine, I really enjoyed that. It is certainly appetizing.
Best regards,
Charlie

Thanks for the input! Makes total sense.
