The first minute of this I had heard in a dream. Back in 2007 or so, i had this dream. One of those kinds you swear you were there: In a parking lot. Not a soul around. My clothes slightly dirty and tattered. On my knees. Large sheets of gray ash slowly floating down around me. A barely visible sickly green glow all around. Dying, I looked up. The clouds started to clear and this music started to play. The radiation lifting, I could feel life returning to my body. Unspeakably exhausted, tears flowed from my eyes, as I beheld the healthy blue of a new sky. Relief. Only few know. The battle finally over. The war won. I staggered to my feet. The plants around me showing a faint twinkle of life, as they began recovering. I started slowly waling home.

At the 1 minute mark is when I awoke. The music still playing in my head. I turned on my computer and created this song. Though my brain has composed music many times in dreams, this was one of the few times I could remember enough of it to get it created in the waking world.

Made in logic pro with roland fantom x6, fender strat and many of my own recorded sfx.
