this is phoenix, typing at the frankfurt flughafen!  (that's where the planes are)  and this is me typing again, three weeks later
at blockparty, because they didn't play my entry at breakpoint.

first off, i want to mention that this is my first official music release in TEN YEARS.  holy crap, it's been too long.  ok, i did a
demo theme in 2000 and some unfinished ITs in 1998-99, but (sorry, distracted by pretty blonde walking by) i never truly picked up
on the windows post-tracker programs like buzz or renoise.  but, i figured i could work with an impulse tracker clone, post-process
it like i did the mods for mindcandy 2, and come up with something releaseable.

for the IT clone, i went with chibitracker.  it's nice to finally have the order list on the same screen as the pattern data.  
but oh god, it has a MAJOR bug.  sometimes, when deleting rows from a track, it stops adding new data, anywhere.  gotta save and 
reload to get going again.  schism tracker was even worse with unacceptably crackly sound.  don't get me wrong, i appreciate free, 
open-source software, but something that actually works reliably under windows would be nice after all these years. maybe renoise
next time.

most of the drum samples were made by gd, using garageband.. thanks!  all the non-drum samples and vocoder are courtesy of my mighty
little microkorg.  so this is the first time i ever a) made my own samples, and b) made vocals, kind of.

big thanks to 4-mat's "vertical" and lizardking's "world of fantasy" for inspiration.

since the vocals came out indiscernable (which is fine, they're nonsense anyway), here they are (*danger, cheese ahead*):

artifical day
my official way

fileshare your mind
leave your doubts behind
look into my
automatic eyes
and you'll realize

never tell me not to live this way
because i want to stay
inside my digital reality
a brand new place for redesigning you and me

if you want to live in a bitstream
you don't have to dream
it is my digital reality
computer vision is a better way to see

so much more to know
where electrons flow
silicon life
on a vector ground
in 3d surround

soon you will see why
you can learn from a.i.
do not turn back
starting to upgrade
let your feelings fade

.. analog fade ..

never tell me not to live this way
because i want to stay
inside my digital reality
a brand new place for redesigning you and me

if you want to live in a bitstream
you don't have to dream
it is my digital reality

because i want to stay
inside my digital reality
i'm living better with my new technology

if you want to live in a bitstream
you don't have to dream
it is my digital reality
zeroes and ones are my way to infinity
