Around 11,000 years ago- the end of the Ice Age
as seen on wikipedia:
The Pleistocene often colloquially referred to as the Ice Age) is the geological epoch which lasted from about 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago, spanning the world's most recent period of repeated glaciations. The end of the Pleistocene corresponds with the end of the last glacial period and also with the end of the Paleolithic age used in archaeology.
The Holocene also encompasses the growth and impacts of the human species worldwide, including all its written history, development of major civilizations, and overall significant transition toward urban living in the present. Human impacts on modern-era Earth and its ecosystems may be considered of global significance for future evolution of living species, including approximately synchronous lithospheric evidence, or more recently atmospheric evidence of human impacts.
Given these, a new term, Anthropocene, is specifically proposed and used informally only for the very latest part of modern history involving significant human impact.
"These recordings take the drone and ambient elements of previous releases to an expanded thematic listen that creates echoes of unfathomable scales of time and the power of mother Earth."

"A massive glacial movement expressed in three parts that carries you deep into the bowels of this primordial phenomena. These deep, low freq. drones, lull you to a quiet place while the crackling sounds of time and ice awaken you to the reality of an ancient creation taking place in real time."
