Hands of lightning required.

I don’t know what the heck was I thinking with this one. Or wait, I do know.

I wondered, how would a normal acoustic piano sound like played through a nasty distortion box?

I did get my answer. It sounds pretty neat!

So, there’s some solo piano heavy metal for you! Or extremely archaic 20th century electronic music. Or nightmarish modern classical music by an european composer, who suffers from a migraine and has a dog.

Or you choice, where you get to choose 3 toppings freely. 4th one costs extra. Five? No.

As my dear friend Roger said on 29 August 1970: WODER.

You’re libra, right?

TOO TIC is thin.

Is tick too thin?

(Ticks are scary buggers. 40 times scarier than a pack of manticores. Do not google!)

Thin ones flex good.

Flexing makes you be able to bend 2.

(Too thin = Do not = 40 time scarier than google.)

Tic manticores. Good-bend.

Flex too able.

Listening with ears & mind.

Ok so, I just listened ON THE TRACES OF RAPTURE and had this funny feeling… Which is really hard to explain, but I shall try.

I somehow heard very clearly all the influences that I’ve had when composing and producing the tune. Some of those I already knew, they were essentially the idea behind the track, before I started to assemble it.

Some associations really took me by surprise. And for some… Like I know this part or thingy or whatever reminds me of something, but I can’t quite put my finger on what.

Anyway, by clicking the song title, you shall hear some moviesque epic orchestral stuff, that has influences from:

– That short passage from Knightmare II: The Maze of Galious.
– Fair amount of Morricone.
– Counterpoint in some Queen song, can’t remember which one.
– Synthesizer that sounds like breathing, it’s from… I don’t know, man.
– More quiet passage near the end from… I can’t tell… Or is it from everything ever made…

Shout-out to introspection.
