Song Production Information
The third in the Programmed series.
From World (full) → Sun (morning), I wanted to focus more on a darker, more progressive sound, but I was aware that I had to compose this song to fit into the game.
The darker elements of the song can still be heard at the intro.
Psy trance is still fun to make.
When I was working on my full length album "Ways for Liberation," this song was completed rather quickly.
From a state of silence to the completed song, it took about a half a day.
Not just dance music, this song reaffirms one important fact for me.
You Cannot Be Programmed!!!
Video Production Information
If the real world can be considered analog, the the virtual world could be considered as digital.
Viewing the interactions between both abstract concepts on a constant basis, I wondered if there was really a set boundary between these two worlds.
And then, when I thought about how much of our lives are touched by these programs on a daily basis, I could not stop but wonder if we ourselves are just programmed...
