This track was initially intended as a piece of background music to a remake of a certain game on Newgrounds, but did not fit the bill as it was not the feel that the creators and developers were going for. I then revisited the project file, took one last listen to the music, and imagined this:
The setting is a battle in a more technologically advanced, fantastical England. A young girl, after a little bit of preparation, leaps as high as she can, and remains aloft as every stain from her is taken away, every wound on her body is healed. Once she is washed clean, she glows, and her clothes are replaced with a new set of clothes -- glowing, protective ones, akin to armour (think the dress changing scenes from Final Fantasy X-2 mashed with the Cyan Wisp scene from the introduction of Sonic Colours). While all this is happening, there are rays of beautiful heavenly light shining from between the clouds in an otherwise cold, dark and grey English morning.
I had tried to imagine other settings to this piece of music -- testing facilities, starry nights, being inside a computer, even being underneath flashing discotheque lights... but the image of having stains washed away and wounds healed is the one I cherish the most. I'm aware of the Kingdom of Herts influence I brought into this piece... now I know I'm a founding member of K of H, but K of H's stuff has been different from my usual composing style, and I'm beginning to sense a bit of K of H creeping into this piece. Who knows? Maybe K of H may end up developing it in the near future.
