Capital of Soot

I initially worked this on FL without a single idea, then when it was finished, I decided that it'd be for a city covered in soot, similar to London at the height of industrialisation, where it's perpetually cold, dark and grey and it rains all the time. There isn't a single day of shine, and the people there are depressed. It is where the protagonist of Les Histoires Duchemin (my series of works) is brought up.

I discussed this theme with a friend, who's working the story with me, and he imagined the queen of the neighbouring country visiting this place and saying, "This is the capital... indeed, the capital of soot!"

I'm especially happy about the end bit, because this is the first time polyphony has been evident in my works. Shimomura-style! :D It's also the first time I've played with classic echo on FL.

P.S. Those of you who keep track of my YT would realise that this track plays at the end of my 200 sub special. This is the answer to the sneak preview I've given you. ^^

Edit 22.07.2012: Version 2 of Capital of Soot can be found here:
