Original Track Length: 8:23

Original Track Key: Am

Edited Track Length: 3:19

Edited Track Key: N/A

Following Track Mix Point: 2:36

Following Track Key: Bm

Following Track Transition: Tone Above

The editing of Lifesigns was focused around the breakdown, and trying to trim the progression of the break into something more manageable, and I achieved this by subtly making the arrangement progress over 4 bars instead of 8 (if you listen at 0:42 you can hear a backing synth enter the arrangement during the closing bars of the progression but not the first).

I trimmed the ending down by removing a 32 bar section, and tweaking the bars to fit a more solid arrangement, plus I looped the clap section at the outro to help bring it into Birds.

The following track Birds comes in at 2:36, and the idea of looping the clap section to help maintain the flow of the transition was that I used a low pass filter slowly opening on Birds to give the impression of the track slowly emerging under the closing clap section of Lifesigns as the clap section had most of the higher frequency content.
