Now the song :)

I always want to put new gear/software/sounds into actual music to see how it performs. This piece started as a demonstration of the PolyVision sounds, but quickly evolved into this musical journey. Somewhere on that journey I decided that I wanted a themed video for it...something that would loosely be Halloween-ish and would be a slight of retelling of the Hero's Journey (see Joseph Campbell's work on the subject), albeit in an incomplete and very abstract way.

I've been a musician for a long time, but I am definitely no film maker! :) I used free video from several websites, for which I am grateful. The most important part is the music, but if you enjoy metaphor, ancient near east symbolism, and being mildly entertained by low budget films (a serious topic no doubt diminished by my amateurish attempts at video), then sink into the music.

The track features a number of patches from PolyVision and nearly the entire track is the Prophet 6, save some drums from EZDrummer2, a few Telecaster parts, and the heartbeat sample at the beginning. All other sounds including the obvious synths, piano, cellos/violas, sound effects are all from PolyVision. It has quite a number of parts to the song...evolving and trans-versing the sonic realms much as our heroine does.

I truly hope you will enjoy it and I thank you for watching. -Cryss
