A Descent into the Maelström

When I was young I read a lot of Edgar Allan Poe's Tales, including “A Descent into the Maelström”, a short story in which “a man recounts how he survived a shipwreck and a whirlpool” (Wikipedia). As often was the case with Poe's work, the tale impressed me very much.

When I wrote this little Grundgestalt, the music told me of Poe's tale — therefore it was only natural to give it the same title.

The orchestration is distorted guitar and uduhachi flute in unison, double bass, and drums.

The song is on peertube and funkwhale.
