The Serpent and the Circle of Perpetual Choirs

This song is basically an improvised piece of dark ambient / drone with a few touches of dungeon synth.
The song is made up of only 2 tracks. The first being the improvisation which is performed using a combination of a drone app, noise app and synthesizer app (synth line performed on my iRig Keys Pro) all running and being manipulated throughout the performance on my iPad. This signal was then processed through my Korg Monotron and various effect pedals. The second track is a simple ambient drone that was added to thicken up the sound of the overall composition.

The title is inspired by the Ouroboros (the serpent and the circle) which I use in the context of the infinite cycle of nature's endless creation and destruction, life and death.

I chose to use The Circle of Perpetual Choirs reference for its connection to the concept of using music to enchant and heal the earth.

I think what I really like about this song is how it really does seem to represent the Past, Present and Future of Shelter Ov Shadows as it combines many of the styles and sounds of my past recordings and also introduces some of the newer sounds and styles which I am currently adding to my sonic repertoire.

The serpent devouring its tail, the cycle comes full circle and continues into infinity.
