Track length: 9:58
Tempo: n/a (slow)

Dark and atmospheric ambient space music. Just under 10 minutes of long, organic, dark & evolving washes of epic instrumental cinematic soundscapes and ethereal unearthly drones.

Perfect atmospheric and dramatic underscore or background music for documentaries and films or for fans of ambient music artists such as Brian Eno, Steve Roach, Thomas Koner, Biosphere, Stars Of The Lid and other ambient textural music and soundscapes. Also makes ideal music for meditation, study, relaxation, yoga or sleep – many people also find it good music to listen to while playing roleplaying space games like Eve Online. Hear yourself breathing in your spacesuit as you drift through the cosmos…
