I made this for my giftee in the NG Audio Secret Santa 2014, Wilhiemthe2nd, based on what they requested:

At least 8 minutes long, with a recurring melodic motif, in weird time signatures that starts out kind of ethereal.

It was a lot of fun to do this, and it pushed me enough that I learned a little along the way, even if I didn't have the time to make it the most polished thing ever.

"I was 99 percent certain about you. But I had to get rid of that one percent doubt." - this clip was sampled from the 1944 film noir, "Laura", which obviously is not something I claim to own. Pretty sure that its age makes it public domain now, but still.

In case anyone is confused about the time signatures, they include (in no particular order - in fact in some places I changed them around randomly): 4/8-3/8-2/8 progressive; 9/8; 11/8; 9/8-11/8 progressive; 7/8-9/8 progressive; and a plain old 3/8. And then I combine 4 of these patterns in a weird poly-time thing at the end. Because why not. (maybe I planned it that way, but shhhh)

ANYWAYS Merry Christmas!
