The whistling was my favorite part of this track! Poets' Corner makes for a perfect subject! Another place I long to visit.

As far as cemeteries go, my favorites were the graveyards in Taiwan. The tombs were colorful works of art, much different from Western style cemeteries. Also, in Chinese culture there is a holiday known as Tomb Sweeping Day. This is a time for families to clean the grounds around the graves of their departed ancestors. There is also a tradition that families are expected to pay to have their ancestors remains interred in their "old home" the place where they were born and where the family originally comes from. This meant that in late summer you could often find specialists disinterring remains and cleaning the bones, preparing to ship them off to mainland China for reinterring in a family or clan mausoleum or gravesite.

Speaking of poets, this has a Beat influence flowing through a submerged industrial rhythm.

Maybe it was the 808, but this reminded me of old school hip hop in all the best ways.

Not exactly the beat I was expecting based on the art!

Yea the whistling was perfect for this track. Some of my favorite graveyards I’ve visited have been those at ruined abbeys in Ireland and Scotland. They’re quite beautiful.
