Thank you @oscillator for taking this adventurous road with me. I know that my workflow and toolchain is so alien to yours - and most other people's.
And thanks for the video. :) As ever your sound choices are excellent. Most of the instruments in the mix were recorded by Staffan, I only added a few layers and effects for production reasons, once the composition was finished.

Really cool track, kudos to you both! Silly question: since you're named "Elements of Synth" and the first track is "Wind", should we expect a theme and so some water, earth and fire next too? :D

I really like this track! My favorite thing in the whole piece is that lovely binaural transition sound that is first heard at about 0:35. I'm guessing that was @jeanette_c's fingerprint. The super long intro and outro are also very cool. Nice work on the synths, @oscillator! Also, you found a great place for Kajsa's voice in the mix, and her harmony vocals add a lot. I'm doing a spinning workout while listening, and this song made me jump to a higher intensity. :)

Hi @milo , yes that "binaural" thing isn't really, but it came out nicely. A bit of Csound trickery, white noise through a bandpass filter with rising frequency passed through a waveguide/Karplus Strong delay with rising pitch/shortening delay time passed through a phaser. Or did you mean the master passed through the Calf phaser? :)
