    Recorded this eerie little instrumental while in isolation...I think it pretty much sums up the mood over the last few weeks:

    A Floyd-ish vibe. Nicely done.

    Very melodic. Very nice soundscape youve put together! You should put some words to it as well. :)

    That's very good indeed! Extremely well put together. Thank you for sharing.

    A Tip:If you click on the cine film icon, then enter your Soundcloud URL in the dialog, the Soundcloud player will appear on the page here. I've grayed out the icons either side.

    Nice! The vocals...is that real or a processed sound?

    They are indeed real vocals recorded/mixed from scratch. Sung by Courtney Ballardo.

    Yeah, just a basic synth bass and pad.

    Sounds like it should be on ma scene in a James Bond movie. Picture the scene...Bond on the edge of death, in a hospital bed, getting a sponge bath by a sexy nurse. He wakes up from his coma when she gets to his man parts ha ha.

    The Bond connection never occurred to me - but now that you mention it, you're absolutely right! Now I'm always gonna picture that mental image of the nurse when I listen to this!

    Nice.

    I keep waiting for some dramatic drums to set off a massive screaming "wah ladened" solo.

    Otherwise, I'd categorize it more as "deep" rather than "dark" myself...
