Return to Ritual - "Hypnagogue"

An ambient soundscape punctuated by steadily panning, rhythmic stabs of oscillating noise, "Hypnagogue" is a meditative foray into a dark, digital wilderness. Over the course of eight minutes, swathes of droning textures wash over each other, permeated by occasional synth bleeps and manipulated white noise. The core of the track is the aforementioned panning rhythm, which twists and distorts to the point of clipping, enveloping the listener. Standout moments include an implied rhythm which nearly mimics the primal banging of tom drums around the three and five minute marks, as well as the effective and screeching conclusion.
