Of course the key question here is... did flight evolve, or was it intelligently designed?? I'm going with the former, since I tend to find that whole "science & reason" thing terribly persuasive. But halc wasn't trying to open that particular can of worms, he was just trying to make some killer 9-bit chippy electronica Pliotwings tunage, as part of his imperatively titled Take Flight album. Drew writes:
"This track is actually almost a year older than all the others. It was originally for a different project, but ended up being ineligible for various reasons. So, since I was up a Pilotwings remix, I thought why not make a few more and call it an album? The rest is history! :)"
Very cool that this is the origin mix behind what eventually blossomed into a full EP; unnamed project's loss is our gain! While the chip textures, lo-fi aspects & infectious, deliciously ornamental melodies and harmonies come as no surprise to those familiar with the album and Drew's work in general, this mix gainfully employs the Rando brothers of tempo fluctuation - Ritard & Accele - more significantly. At three minutes & change, it's a shorter jam, but the shifts in pacing give it some compositional girth as the 6/8 time signature segues from brisk shuffle to deep sway. Fresh, invigorating stuff & another great cut off PTF!
