I watched a trailer for Escape From New York and listened to the main theme song by John Carpenter like a thousand times this week. You can tell that the first two chords in the chorus of this song were lifted from that theme song! It's an E minor to a C sus2 chord and it sounds really heroic and dreamy, especially if you put emphasis on the G note in that chord in the harmony.


Since the song's name is Crystalis, I thought I should include a caterpillar metamorphizing into a chrysalis. As it turns out, forming a cocoon is a lot more violent than I had thought. I included it because I thought it was interesting nonetheless! It almost looks like he's dancing to the beat! How cute!! <3 Almost distracts from the gruesome reality that its body is digesting itself and turning to goo. Thankfully though, at the end of the process a beautiful butterfly emerges, dries its wings, and flies away to pollinate flowers, procreate, and just be darn nice to look at.

Awesome song! I can definitely hear the John Carpenter influences you went for and I'm also hearing some Daft Punk/Tron Legacy elements too. Might save this for improv choreography in the future.
