Lattice of Coincidence

I recieved my Intrada CDs yesterday; Alex North's The Devil's Brigade and Miklós Rózsa's Spellbound. I have not yet listened to them, however. The reason why is because even though I'd been eagerly awaiting these discs (the Rózsa is an Oscar-winning classic and I can't imagine how a North score for a war picture could possibly be anything but awesome), when I recieved them yesterday I was already in the middle of yet another mix. Yes, that now makes six discs in six weeks (seven if you count the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy revision, which, as I've indicated earlier, was only a very minor tweak to an existing master). I wasn't even going to bother trying to make another mix, but the evening before yesterday, an idea came into my head and I started the selection process and finished it yesterday night.

Hey, while I love bombast, there's only so much of it one can take, so it is perhaps fitting that this disc would be quite a contrast to the very long and mostly very loud projects I've been working on until now. The new disc is much shorter (running a hair under an hour), and is also a good deal quieter... I was intending to make it sort of a lighter take on the Songs of the Heavens, Grace and Connections... for the most part, it is, but it does take a somewhat more serious turn from time to time over the course of the disc.

I was debating what to call it (waystone will remember an extremely sleepy phone conversation the night before last in which I was asking for advice), but the arrival of the Intrada box drew my attention back to the work of Dr. Rózsa... the track "Redwoods" from Time After Time had already been selected for inclusion, and the pleasant title also gave me some ideas for what to do about the cover art.

This is the very scene from which my "plate of shrimp" expression comes from. I've posted this scene before, but not in video form.
