Well this is it, the final track of the first disc, and compared to the relative ease of editing ‘Seven Days And One Week’ previously, this track was an absolute nightmare!

I had to do a lot more than just squeeze the track down to radio edit length this time, as it was the final track and I wanted to be able to

A) make the most of the remaining time on the disc (without compromising the mastering process of the CD itself) and

B) edit the track so as to get the most of the track elements.

The actual audio editing was focused on the two breakdowns, the intro being the first to have 8 bars removed, and the second breakdown had 8 bars removed to speed up the build up (this is noticeable at  3:41 with the snare rolls – the original track built up over 16 bars). The track itself is very atmospheric, with very intricate sound design and synthetic soundscapes, and the editing had to be very precise to be able to cut and splice without any noticeable artifacts.

I also removed a 32 bar loop after the first breakdown, and the outro was tailored to fit into the remaining time.

Automation was used on the overall track tempo too, to try and squeeze some remaining time into the mix, but only around 1-2 bpm as not to ruin the overall vibe – this was done during the closing bars where there are no drums, as it would have been impossible to even notice the change in tempo with just a pad playing a drone to a fade out.
