A new ambient track, but this time with a beat. Attempting to take some of the compositional ideas used in Aslepiadaceae and apply them to the rhythm as well as melody and harmony. Also playing with a lot of new sound design ideas. (Well, new to me, anyway.)

The title is a reference to the time of year when it was completed, but also to the somber tone I hear when I listen to it now. It has a meditative, almost spiritualistic feel, but I think the rhythm elements, as offbeat as they get here and there, keep it grounded. It was a balancing act getting all the elements to work together, but I’m very pleased with how it came out.

Enjoy!
