1Overall Description
I hope you slowed the music down with an effect rather then push the keys at that rate.., But if you sat for 22:23 min in trance constructions more power to you, my hat is off.
 
2Creativity Description
Because the structure is more then merely creative but of a standard format this should be an example for others to follow specially if they like the way the piece evolves.
 
3Artistic License Description
While the gradual growth in sound is expert like it is by Minute 13:30 the piece is totally different from where it started but only momentarily because it comes back to source finding the beginning sounds at about minute 18. Almost too impressive and expressive to be real.
 
4Arrangement Description
I like the creative element entering around minute four. minute ten is intense by the time it arrives, there the shivers of slivers are in a relational co-mixture so pronounced and expressive. most impressive ..
 
5Sound Quality Description
I think my end has a hiss to it and is Low quality but the actual piece has the quality of dreaminess that is opening to infinity. This is both good and bad. (somehow balanced in the center)
 
6Does it work as a piece of music Description
But as for me I have listened to the ambient [i]things[/i] since 1984 till the moment here. This is ambient music at its best workings., and most expressive ., there are feelings of smooth lights blending.

Thanks, man, for these very kind words. Because ambient in general is a specific genre and most people consider it boring, it is very pleasant to read an opinion of a person who "got it". Not all of it was played live though. A lot here is sound manipulation. The source sounds are pretty complex and long. But there are whole sections which were played live. I consider this to be one of my strongest works and definitely a favorite in Journey 89.
