Karmic Motivation

To celebrate tonight's Fractal gig, here is a 7-minute or so long studio improvisation from the early days of Fractal.

The name was originally inspired by the soundscapes Jim creates on his Korg Karma. Jim plays keyboards rather than bass for this piece, which opens with Nic's inspired solo-ing over the top and Paul's syncopated drumming giving structure to the opening section. The improv gets into some heavy riffing at the end, then resolves to a peaceful close.
