+Loved the tune. Time-signature changes is indeed something that i miss in the scene. Hope you will create plenty more of these!

Hey, thanks for the best, most acute, most sheerly explanotory critic;) I take it as a compliment!
I was entertained by every tune at X08, I learned something and was inspired..:)
I hope I can work out some more "polished" ideas in 2009..
keep it up¬

Formula too complex error for a compo. Nice that at least one person doesn't bend for the mass pressure, even though he could with such musical skills. Keep it coming Gerard.

a hard to grasp composition. maybe a bit too erratic for my taste, even though I listen to lot of "ecletic prog".

this was probably the only tune in the compo that has pauses and time signature changes - something I'd like to hear more in c64 music.

I'll have to give this one few more listens to see if it sticks. I like those unison riff breaks already.

so maybe it's not Gerard's finest moment, but it's nice have the underrated fusion master back. I bet there's something more coherent and memorable waiting in this experimental path.

such an amount of beautiful harmonies i almost can't stand it. this is like two or three tunes glued together, but aw fuck, the harmonies. i think i will repeat this a thousand times, and learn.
