Ooh, I really dig this. The minimal take, the little shifts between drone, parallel motion, pedal point, and then the occasion when the voices come down to unison--it's very "Simon & Garfunkel in a padded cell."

Seconding all that verbose crap LOOM just said. Very nicely done.

Thanks, LOOM. I had no idea I was so musically sophisticated.

Oh, I realised it may or may not have been completely unintentional, but that often leads to subtle brilliance.
