My first impression is one of space and reverberation. Even tho the sound is very brief and obviously curtailed, the sense of space is very obvious. The is due to two factors that I hear: the large amount of reverberance, and the lack of a distinct attack. There is a definite attack and decay to the sound, but it feels like it comes on roundedly. The sense of attack seems to come from the transition from the initial lower tone being replaced by a louder and higher tone rather than the standard singular burst. There is also a sense that this sound has been curtailed. The reverb is thick and feels like it should go for a very long time, like a impulse in a cistern. Because this feeling conflicts with the sample's brevity, it creates an odd tension, a feeling of unnaturalness.
