The iPad
Provides some cool apps, this is a good example of how a drummer can hone a medly of instruments into a great tune. It's good to hear results coming from a device like a iPad or iPhone, I've used mine for ideas but I'm still in the process of passing it through the computer to a finished composition. Thoroughly enjoyable.

I don't get Mercury...
...but I do get some very cool sounds and a very interesting rhythm track. Seems it could really go somewhere if you wanted it to.

Just needs that touch...
...of Richard Wright and David Gilmour... I can also hear the beginnings of a middle period Peter Gabriel track... So maybe some Fripp and some Mellotron as well...

After it plays for a bit, I start hearing, or almost hearing, someone singing the absent vocals...

Platform friendly
Obviously your impeccable sense of timing and capacity for juggling polyrythyms carries-over to the iPad with no loss of quality. No matter what platform, you play with winged feet : )
