The great barrier and waterfall created by John Downey.

"Given the dark centre stage of US politics, I decided to use only a few tracks and avoid creating a piece that would pile on that mood.  I chose some stock samples as well as two of my own.  

"The percussion was an afterthought but I thought it grounds the drifting ambient drones, making this short composition introspective, fitting for the position we find ourselves in as Americans. Note - the piece will increase volume very slowly over six plus minutes, so keep playback gain at medium-low."

Part of the Inferno project to imagine and compose the sounds of Dante’s Hell, marking the 700th anniversary of The Divine Comedy. To find out more, visit http://www.citiesandmemory.com/inferno
