The title track of this, the 8th Classic Beats release, came about by getting outside of some of my usual habits in creating these drones. More specifically, I was thinking of selling a particular eurorack filter module I felt had run its course in utility. Before selling a module I'll try a number of things that I hadn't before, to be sure selling it is the right thing to do. The very first new thing I tried with this particular filter led to track one of this release, and the result is possibly the closest I've ever come to realizing a specific musical vision, hence the title. It's a soothing drone to sink into, shifts over time, and some even enjoy sleeping to it. The rest of this release is made up of drones I made around the same time as the original "Pinnacle", though those drones don't necessarily use the same filter module, and have their own merits to explore.
