Ephemeral - track made using Obsidian FM only

Since Nanostudio 2 came out with all the flexibility of Obsidian I've been meaning to make a track with only Obsidian FM and internal effects, no AUs or samples or fancy wavetable stuff :)

It's taken me a year to get around to it, but here we go... It's some form of hard and deep techno because @dendy inspired me about a week ago to make some techno with his track.

As I say, it's all FM, all Obsidian. Even the kick, the percussion and the noises. All effects are NS2 internal.

Play it at your own risk! You'll want speakers with some bass, though.

    Thanks @Cray23! Angst seems to be what I'm made of, probably comes from listening to too much Joy Division and Nick Cave and industrial music when I was younger. I like something with bite - an edge of some sort.

    I admit I was surprised how deep FM can get. I wasn't familiar with it (I still pretty much just change things randomly until I get close to what I want to hear) but it can be really quite powerful. I think there's more FM in my future :)
