Heliosphere is a set of spacey ambient drones, more cold than dark. These were produced using processed improvisations recorded on 14th March 2007, originally intended as background drones for another project. As they weren't used, further overdubs, recorded on 20th and 29th April 2007, were added to complete the compositions.
Heliosphere is available to stream and download free from the Internet Archive.
Space music. A heavy duty arsenal of synthesizers was used to craft these highly suggestive, swirling sounds.
Too much change-up to be drone. Not quiet enough to be ambient. This is a trip into space, where meteors and comets are flashing by.
Nice one Jez.... a well deserved review IMO. The last sentence says it all really, with your excursions into this style of music we are treated to meteors and comets flashing by. With some Dark Ambient/Space efforts I've heard by others, the only things that flash by are discarded bits of space junk!

and there was I thinking I was doing too much
I've always hated music where you get long tracks and the intro is just noise for 10 minutes and nothing else.
The trick is to try and keep the listener entertained not become bored to death.
i think thats the difference between ambient and minimalism but they all have their fans i have some Steve Roach albums that are a bit boring for my taste but some are absolutley brilliant eg magnificent void.
