Liner Notes: 

One of the downfalls of my performing/composing/recording methodology is that interruptions really mess things up. Case-in-point: this particular song. I had just been getting into a groove & really enjoying how the song was developing, when my Wife came home from Saturday morning grocery shopping. I had to stop the recording (in mid-phrase, so-to-speak) & go help her bring in the groceries & put them away (a Husband's job is never complete). The upside of all this is that I have a sketch of an idea & three loops recorded that I can go back & revisit if the Muse is so inclined. But my "capture a particular feeling at a particular moment in time" methodology is sort of deflated like that. In essence: you can't go home again. It will never be the same. But then, perhaps the next moment captured will be equally as inspirational (or even more-so).

Again, this was that standard Candle M.O.: HG Fortune's Astral Dreamer as a bed track with guitar loops (c/o Mobius) built over top. There was potential, but the universe (& maybe my Wife Lol ) had other plans.

Oh well… on to the next.

Nice atmosphere, and I like the slinky guitar line. If you have time to go back to it, of course, it might be better, but I kinda like what you've got here.

This is a great title of course! how many times did she have to yell at you before you even heard/noticed? hahahah
Yeah for me this could still work as a "bridge" piece, but yup I was just really starting to get into it as well especially zoning in on that rising note that sounded like a cyborg vacuum cleaner getting closer or something Biggrin and if you never do get back to it just add Dystopian Dream(interrupted) hahaha

Nice start to this one and could go on further as you mention.
