This is the perfect soundtrack for stargazing on a remote mountain top while doing shrooms. So peaceful.

This reverby thing hides a very beautiful composition.

Thanks, everybody. It was harder than I expected to write something and play it and then sot of let go of it in order to cover it all up with a bunch of different delays and reverbs. But now I sort of want to make a whole album of this sort of stuff.

Reminded me of this for some odd reason. Excellent sound.

It's evening here and the reverb still works. Nice one - so many yummy layers.

i'm way behind on this, but what's the effects chain you used here?

I'll have to pull up the session next time I'm in my studio to remember exactly what each of the reverbs and delays I used were.

But basically, each instrument has some combination of long reverse reverb, long forward reverb, and multiple multi-tap and stereo delays. Then the two piano tracks are played backwards with even more reverb. Some of the reverbs and delays were applied in audiosuite and some are automated to keep the melody in parts. Then the whole thing has a long reverb, a compressor, and a mastering limiter. I think I might have put the arpeggiator synth (which is buried and just gives a vague sense of rhythm) through Bittersweet, too.
