 Patches used (in order of appearance)

  • Plucking the Glacier

  • Dawnlands

  • Lush Ambient String Orchestra

  • Fizzphonics Build

  • Timefreezing the Path

  • Boy’s Choir Soloist Ah

  • Glass Harmonica

  • Aesop’s Finger Drum

I’ll admit I cheated on this one. Some of the patches that came up in the random selection process just didn’t work for me, so I let myself replace them. I think this was just another indication of the fact that I was starting to lose interest in the whole project.

On the other hand, I think it made for a better piece. It’s also the longest one in the whole series. It turned out to be a bit more Enya-esque than is usual for me (not that I have anything against Enya) but I think it works pretty well.

The only thing I don’t like is the drum track. “Aesop’s Finger Drum” could have been more interesting, but with the one-hour time restriction I didn’t have time to do more than record one pattern and repeat it. Yet another reason to want to move on.
