Final: Critical Thresholds

I was a little looser when I wrote this and it helped a bit.
A slight bit of stumbling but otherwise it was a smooth writing process.

Toward the song’s end I started thinking about how there may be a bit more pressure, inevitability and horror going on but it didn’t come through too much. Maybe that’s a good thing; maybe it’s not.

Final’s “Critical Thresholds” is from The First Millionth Of A Second.

I hope you enjoy.

A hum fades in and carries something seemingly stretched out. A light static underneath and it all fades in and out, almost like waves gently lapping at a shoreline. The sound carry something with them but it is difficult to make out.

Something else appears in brief stretches, quiet and careful at first before coming up rather suddenly and disappearing again. It shows itself only in parts rather than a whole and it takes space where it can.

Something pulses before fading away and a low sound seems to become present before also fading away. A rumble and a foreboding seeps into a wide, open expanse whilst sounds move in and around each other. A dread seems to crack through the air but it does not shift the calmness. It does not change the shaped formlessness created by the sounds retaining a minimal spread.

Eventually all sounds away, though one lingers just before the song ends.
