Some ambient-ey stuff I've been working on for a while. Somehow I think it could should actually be longer...

You might notice the weird clicking sounds that appear, I don't know how they showed up, they're glitches but they're not distracting.

I feel like I could turn this into a 10 minute epic reminiscent of something from Move D and Benjamin Brunn's "Songs from the Beehive" (which I recommend to everyone). Does it need more parts? More development? Should I fix the clipping (i think it sounds nice)?

P.S. - I'm going through a kind of tough time and the only way I cope is by writing music so I'm probably going to be posting tons and tons of it in the coming weeks. Please excuse me if they progressively get sloppier and sloppier

Oh, this would be perfect ambient music for a unknown Deus Ex level.

I love the sound, though I would definitely recomend fixing the clipping. Intentional overdrive is one thing, but in this instance (for me, at least), the clip at the top of the swell sounds like a mistake, rather than a planned change in timbre.

As for adding parts, for the sake of holding to ambience and minimalism, I'd say not, until and unless you do draw it out longer. Not too much so, but gradual shifting of parts would certainly not be unwelcome.

I liked this a lot--enough to the point that I was disappointed that it ended. I think it has more room to grow.

By all means, share with us more coping mechanism music. I hope it helps with whatever you're going through; it usually does, for me.

This is really cool and I'm glad something positive is coming from the negative. Fix the clipping and you have something ready for the club.
