This has been one of my more ambitious solo musical projects to date, and it was inspired by the amazing creations of my friends at ClockworkCreature. I've been a big fan of their work for years, and have long wanted to compose a theme of sorts for them! I thought it fitting to make this song a blend of traditional worldly sounds mixed with some modern, mechanical elements. It can perhaps be described as a sort of wind-up Celtic heavy metal. ;)

This tune features a variety of instrumentation, with the lead melody played on my bamboo folk flute (which was a gift from Qarrezel of Clockwork Creature fame), along with my harmony drone Native American style flute. It also includes a bit of harmonica for ambience, my bodhrán for the rhythm, and a rim-blown "quenajave" flute (altered & distorted) to sit in for electric guitar. There are also a few additional sound effects that were taken from various free online sound libraries.

Find this song and more on my original album, "Full Circle!"

    Love how it starts with a mechanical "heartbeat" and then the standard thump-thump of a regular heartbeat. Awesome atmospherics!

    THIS IS SO COOL!!!! YOU ARE SO COOL!!!
    Thank you so much for this, it's really incredible of you to dedicate a piece of work like this to us! And the quenajave sound might just be the coolest thing ever. I would absolutely swear there was an electric guitar in this song.

      It's only cool because you are cool, and cool things inspire other cool things to be cool! XD Your enjoyment of this song means a lot to me. I certainly had fun putting it together! :)
