This is a song from the soundtrack to the independent game TIE, with art and programming by developer Tony Nowak.

This particular song is a remixing and reconfiguring of a song that I wrote in 2009 as Vegetarian Meat (same title).

In the game, the player goes through the seven days of the week. They wake up, get on the bus, go to work and come back home. Each day is associated with a song that follows the progression of the internal struggle of the character as he attempts to cope with the drudgery of the daily grind.

Overall the tone of the game seems rather downhearted, but in my conceptualization of the soundtrack and the game itself I see a hopefulness to it. It is a 'leaving behind'. It builds an emotion that is characterized with an ever-present negativity and then lets that emotion die, thus enabling oneself to move on and forward into an open future.

If you would like to listen to the full soundtrack now, you can do so by going to this link:

meatanalogue.bandcamp.com

Otherwise, I will be submitting the rest of the songs on NG throughout the next week, and you can listen to them on here. If you decide to download it, I would recommend getting the higher quality (much better sounding) version on bandcamp :)

- if you are thinking of using this anywhere else, I would ask that you please contact me first/beforehand.

I have a meeting tonight and am trying to think of what it is I am going to say. I found your song, put it on, and all the ideas are now coming to me. It really helps me to relax and focus, and it's clear that you put a lot of thought, time, and effort into this. You describe it well in your comments too...there is a definite hopefulness to this piece, but it feels like it is in the face of a serious adversity as well.

I am currently enjoying this as I type. I'm looking forward to hearing the rest as you release them, I'll be following you from now on. Great submission, thanks.
