I say it again. Cyclone knows piano solos! Very good piano in this piece accompanied by good percussion. Good baseline keeps the song nice and mellow sounding. No distinctive lead tho. Good use of lyrics spoken throughout the song. Nicely woven together and finished off properly. Samples are all nice and 8 bit! The drums could've been sampled at a higher rate. They sound like the drums in those old 4ch MODS. Nonetheless they still fit in nicely with the other samples in this piece. Good panning effects used so be sure to play in stereo to get the full effect of the song. Lyrics are well volumed to be heard nicely with the other samples. A worthy additions to any of Cyclone's fan.

Lyrics:

A rooftop landscape, seen by the light of a thousand
neon signs.

The sound of a saxiphone rises from the alley below.

Nobody comes up here much, so I'm suprised by the sound
of footsteps behind me.

I turn and see the face of an old friend.

He tells me: "The future is what we make of it."

I say: "Sometimes we need to go where destiny sends us."

This song represents several firsts:

  - I've always despised drum loops as being repetitive,
    unoriginal, and wasteful of space. A friend teased
    that this was because I didn't know how to use them.
    I took this as a challenge, hence the drum loop.

  - This is the first time I've ever written a song with
    lyrics. Is there a way to record a sample while
    listening to an IT?

This tune was written
for the multichannel
music competition at
the Crash '97 demo party
in Calgary, where it
won second place.

Special thanks go to
Mauricio and Candy for
letting me use their
computer to finish the
song.

Greets go out to all the
cool people I met at
Crash. Big smiles go out
to Seks and Physics who
worked so hard to put
the whole event together.
It's just too bad more
people didn't show up.

KEEP SUPPORTING THE
NORTH-AMERICAN DEMO
SCENE!
