Plastikman's "Koma"

Sounds begin to form dense altered noise, as if it is descending into a spiral that speeds up to a recognizable sequence. This beat maintains the melody with a slow fade that brings up a cult beat that makes the objectives of the piece a fluid motion. The up-tempo spiral of beats becomes almost harmonious, perpetuating a stacking of sounds. The mid-range level of the sequence moves with a longer piece that becomes more rhythmic, and the tone becomes a bit louder. The strange rhythm opens one's ears to the hallucinatory, altered state that could bring about a dream state. Does this composition provide a key to our dreams or does it become something more?
