` – Aiia
States of being move with the tides, repetition marking the passage of time. Shadows sprawl outwards to stretch predictably, blending into yesterday, forecasting tomorrow. All memories, experiences, tasks meld into one, replacing themselves in memory banks. There are no surprises, time is recycled, ` by Aiia is heard in the background.
Distorted pillars jut through shifting clouds, periodically drawing the sound outwards. Layers collapse over each other harmoniously, cycling through the foreground and background. Ridged synths form the earth, irregularly changing the terrain but never straying too far. Heavenly bells ring above, chimes bouncing off the pillars and fading, shifting the focus momentarily before circling around and returning. These cycles continue semi permanent, occasionally echoing off each other; as has been time, in ebb and flow, freed from expectations and interruptions.
Observation recalls much, not all. The temporary nature of being and knowing demands acknowledgement, itself characteristic of the relationship one experiences with living. Emotions carry a weight ascribed by a hormonal meat skeleton, but earth holds no feelings – from stardust to forecast singularity, the earth exists, to the limits of human cognition. ` presents the earth as a timeline occurring to a listener observing; as beings and civilizations become, expand, increase and collapse, everything will be, has been and was. Occupying an infinitesimal space within an incomprehensibly large place is destined, the way the space is occupied is not.
This track serves to fill a void of thinking, a lack thereof, or whatever one wants; it is not destined to anything besides existing within physical technology, to someday cease to be a series of ones and zeroes and another day cease to be a memory. Also works well for studying as do most if not all ambient tracks that I have come across in the past.
