When I start to compose and/or arrange, I have some idea as to how it will sound but in this case I wasn’t sure it would be worth the time for there were so many melodies going on at the same time and I was concerned that it could get too muddy. I’m glad that I finished it for it turned out much better than I had hoped. When you are working with another persons score there are many things to consider and fortunately I found a composer who was extremely talented and creative.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I enjoyed recording it. While I was laying down each of the eight tracks, I began to feel as if I were in the middle of an orchestra for each different melody had its own power and importance. It’s hard to describe the feeling but I hope your musicians have the same feeling for it was very COOL!

The repeated main theme which sounds to be repeated in it entirety is actually slightly changing in a very substile way.
