This is the second of three movements.
Recorded on a Roland RD-2000 stage piano, Moog Matriarch synthesizer and a small drum kit. In two parts, the first is dominated by solo piano; the second is a six-minute keyboard-and-synth performance with overdubbed noise and bass tracks. I added some drum playing for color and additional drive.

Very well done. Both the music and the synths remind me of times gone by which I tend to like.
Thank you for listening, Timothy. Your commitment to sticking with it for nine minutes and then commenting means a lot. Yea... times gone by that are worthy of resurrecting. Thank you again for taking the time to listen. -Ray
Pure awesomeness once again, Ray. Having previously mentioned your prog inklings, I think it might be meaningful for me to say that you could go head to head with Keith Emerson on a piece like this. When your post-classical piano intro yielded to that beautifully old-school Moog part with intricate drums interplay, you could have convinced me I was hearing something on par with ELP. Oh, and that freaky, dystopian excursion at about the 4-minute mark - totally loved that. Like, "Tarkus" meets Tangerine Dream.
If you ever need a bass player to fill in the bottom end with some bone-crunching distortion and a pick, let me know! :-)
Keep 'em coming, this is total listening enjoyment. Cheers, FP
Thank you so much, Frank! And, if you make something where you think drums could work, or want to explore the concept if you're not sure, please let me know. --Regards, Ray
Absolutely - Thanks!
