Reimagined by Alex Hehir.

"This binaural recording really captured the place for me and I have focussed much of the piece around the gong sounds.The piece starts and ends with the original field recording of the gong strikes and slowly morphs into my reimagined version of them.I played around with many different pitches and I wanted to create a mediative feeling of falling slowly down into a hazy abyss!Even though sounding very repetitive ,many of the sounds evolve over the course of the piece.The main tools used were Izotope's Iris and a Vermona drum machine."
