    Like that a lot!!  I have no idea how you go about creating it ... and I'm trying not to think about it while listening, just let it wash over me.  Great stuff man!

    OK, whatever that swell is at the end of Collectors Edition, I want to know what that is .... aside from millions of reverb :)
    Superb stuff!!

    Thank you - nice to hear that some people like it!

    I'm afraid I'm very lackadaisical when it comes to making my "music"

    It's mostly done in Audacity and the process starts with me recording bits and pieces (noodling while turning lots of pedals on and off) onto a Tascam DR-07.

    Then I import the recording into Audacity and chop off bits and pieces that I like the sound of (there's usually 20 or 30 mins of it), loop some, and on the last couple of recordings throw in a looped drum track (not necessarily in sync.if it sounds ok ).

    If it sounds ok then I export it as an MP3 and then make a "movie" with Microsoft Movie maker and a picture from google mucked about with in a very old copy of Paint Shop Pro

    The swell at the end was from a bit of guitar playing that I'd reeeeaaallllyyy slowed down and added lots of reverb to (in Audacity) which I made using another Audacity effect.

    Not counting the noodling bit, I can do a whole track in a couple of hours   I don't often set out to do something in particular, but currently I'm trying out drum loops, as you can see.

    Another new tune, with my daughter on voice-changing megaphone. She chose the drum loop, to which I added a short loop chopped from the recording, plus some heavily effected bits. The title was the last thing she said before the recording ended, we'd been going 1 minute 11 seconds . . .  ;)

    I'm having fun, football on the TV but with the commentary off the radio - it's slightly ahead of the TV coverage so I can do other things and look across at the telly if something exciting happens.

    As a consequence I've made three new pieces, as you can see. :)
