about

I believe in a future where every promise made by the many holy books of humanity is made real with science. I am a transhumanist. I'm a child of the Third Enlightenment born of the Singularity. I want color-changing skin, eyes that see in many worlds at once... and I want my wings.
I want my wings.
Given my reading of history and the evolution of technology, this is a future that borders on the inevitable.
Any oldschool Moby fans (raver era) should be able to spot his influence on the beats, keys and FX layer for this track. I've played around with modernizing this style, primarily thru electro-synths, while working to keep it minimal-yet-progressive. The end result may be one of the most catchy tracks on the album. The "Effusionary Mix" needed only capture the emotions of a single moment, so it offered the most freedom from the storyline in a way. The simple checklist going into it: overtones of victory and accomplishment; progression from organic instrumentation into synthetic; minimal downtime and minimized feelings of longing. Check, check, check.
The art is inspired by H R Giger's cover art for "Biomannerism" and from the "Battle Angel Alita" manga. The first time I saw the cover of "Biomannerism", I instantly wanted to add wings to the piece. My original attempt years ago was a masculine demon facing towards the cover with his wings extended out from behind the box. A lot's changed since that version. I wanted to use my lovely Faerie for the cover, but she's been as busy as me lately... or more... let alone getting her to stand still naked for an hour or so while I could draw her. She's still a fitting model for the piece, so I drew from my memory of her instead. The one requirement was that only a single wing could be shown, a nod to the one-winged angel Sephiroth. The finishing touch was the image of the Pleiades that NASA put into the public domain, although I've rotated them to reveal their question mark shape.

lyrics

hi ni itte shinkin iro utata azayaka nari
Pure gold, entering fire, colors even brighter.

jishö isshö tenchi odoroku
My single laugh shakes both heaven and earth.
