This track is from the EP entitled 'Edge' - available at gongspa.co.uk/cdsdownloads/
The entire EP was recorded in the copper mines at Alderley Edge in Cheshire, UK (an area known for it's beauty, it's ley lines and high energies, and its connectedness to all things wizard, witch and Alan Garner). As such it has an amazing and unique ambience.
The gongs seem happy to be 'home' and are speaking/singing about the mines, their immense history, their geological make up and the spirits who dwell there. The gong on this track is a Paiste 38" Symphonic Gong (Lionheart). The track is the first part of a three part movement entitled "A Giant's Slumber". The track's name is "40,000 Winks".
