His side of the split starts out with some harsh noise while his track is over 9 minutes in length while atmospheric sounding drones can also be heard in some parts of the song. Elements of ambient are also added into the music which also makes the track more diverse as well as keeping everything instrumental and field recordings are also utilized at times.
