New releases from René van der Wouden:

Here is a new ambient and space music composition I wrote last month as a follow up of Chronospheres, and it is called “Into the Deep”.

More than 42 minutes of deep ambient music. Dream on, relax, sit and enjoy. May this music be a relief in these aggressive and negative times.


New 1-track-only release on Bandcamp: https://rewo.bandcamp.com/album/chronospheres

54 minutes of space music, a sound journey into space.
