This one came slowly over the course of the entire day. I would go and work at it for an hour or two and then kept wanting to tweak something with the sound and how it sounded when recorded. I do admit that sometimes things get a little cloudy, not necessarily a bad thing; but one of those things one would rather do on purpose for effect.
It is feeling more and more normal to shift attention towards the Matriarch, using a level or two of automation in Ableton Live helps to keep a flow going. I sense the pieces are getting longer and longer (in tiny increments) and this feels very much like my initial experiments could lead me to sessions of one to three hours with very little effort.
