It's called "Hieland Laddie." It sounds an old sea lament -- one of those where someone is waiting for her love over the ocean, but of course he's dead and, probably, so will she be soon enough. I aimed to make the end sound like drowning. Ingredients: acoustic guitar; field recording recorded at Nubble LIght in York, Maine; and the Teenage Engineering OP-1 as the horn. Tremolo and Reverb are Uhbik plugs. The bass drum is a sample in Ableton.
