Beautifully structured with superb sonics. I like music like this. Has that minimalist feel. I’ve heard some Adams and this could fit into his canon. That choir near the end was great.
Congrats on a very fine work.

Thank you Charles!

Another beautifully unsettling piece. You’re very good at this style, it’s not easy to make something unsettling while still making it musically pleasing - many musicians push it too hard and devolve into moments of pure racket without meaning to.

I love this kind of music.

Hi Ian - Thank you ever so much for your comments. I really appreciate it!
