5 # Long Turning - Cello harmonic samples are looped and layered with heavily reverbed and filtered water and bird sounds. and a low frequency panning drone.
6 # Mirror - A log drum sample pattern is slowly getting more and more out of phase with other versions of itself while being layered with triangle, reverbed noise and a wooden flute run through a ring modulator.
