This song took shape in over the course of only about a week, Most of this consisted of sound design and developing a wide array of complementary patterns. I only started the initial arrangement the night before the release. There is something wonderful about having a deadline for something creative. Had I not been sticking to my schedule I would have easily sat with this song for months agonizing over minute details. It’s liberating to finish with an idea so soon after beginning it. I would estimate that 80% of the sounds in this track came directly off of the Tempest, live, with very little quantization or post processing.
