This is a track I put together in 2006. It was meant to be set to animation, but I never got that far. It tells the story of a little robot who lives in a dark, quietly decadent city, inhabited by cold, uncaring humans and their robot servants. The little robot dares to dream, he dreams that he can sing. When he finally plucks up the courage to express this dream, he is greeted with ridicule from his human masters and banished to the cold, uninhabited tunnels under the city. There he realises that the humans are threatened by the fact that he can dream, if a robot can dream of singing, it can dream of freedom too. He resolves to learn to sing, and then return to the city above and teach his robotic brethren to sing too. If the other robots can learn to sing, despite the human's assertions that robots can't sing, then maybe they will see that freedom is possible too. So he spends weeks and then months in the dimly lit chambers beneath the city, writing and perfecting the code that will allow him to sing. Its hard, its never been done before, but then, one day, he sings.
