    @PulseWidthMod: The same sound that comes in at 1:10... it's a preset on the Virus TI, usually set at patch K47 called GinaPad JS. If you grab the resonance knob and crank it full-blast, it oscillates wildly. Awesome stuff.

    This third mix recalls (quite a bit) of the Summers & Fripp works from the early 80s. Super smooth and transporting. Brings me to my happy place.

    @nailmusic: Thanks, Neil - I only got this recorded late at night after a few attempts. Now I have to deconstruct it and make it a real track... this was recorded live into a Sony digtal recorder.

    @PYXL8R: well, you saw how the choir backed out at the last second in the live show. hehe it didn't come out 100% live nor did it record well (bad compression?), but it was fun stuff to do with Jeremy.

    It took me 5 years, but I have finally found where I 'borrowed' this echo-verb-piano style of playing from. It's this piece. I ended up using this style ever since!
