in the song City of Night is the lyric "Just a number writing solo in the code" or "in the cold"

It's 'code' :)

Wait It's writing in the code? Not Riding?

It's 'I'm just a number riding solo in the code'

It's a binary metaphor for being a rebel :)

When you didn't correct "writing" I thought I'd been hearing it wrong XD

It's one of my favorite lines in your songs. It's like metalhead pythagoreanism.

Very neat philosophically. Just a fun way to interpret it in my opinion :D

Thanks you for clearing that up I really appreciate that. Actually if its not too much trouble and too much of a derail I would really love to know more about that song, as far as what you drew on for inspiration and such. I spend an inordinate amount of time listening to it and am curious, considering that is one of the few non-game/movie inspired pieces that you have gifted us with.

I made it after seeing the trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 :) It's just a generally very cyber-rebel type theme. Standing from the crowd in a mechanical, clone-like world

The call back to Little Sister is the best bit of the song!

Yes I have only bought two of his songs, with LIttle Sister being played over and over on my playlists.. now I think I will add 3.

So, any chance you'll release the full 8 1/2 minute version separately? I can see why you cut it down so much and it's probably a good decision but I'd definitely buy that version as well if you released it as a separate song.

Nah, it doesn't exist, I literally chopped all that stuff out - it was just repetitions of stuff already in the song though!

Interesting to read this behind-the-scenes of the music production. Although I haven't played the game yet so I have decided not to listen to this song because I'm extra-paranoid about spoilers.

Aaw. Thats a real shame. I know cutting songs are critical to reach the wider audience, but it would have been real nice for those of us who simply can't get enough of it already. Like with Sovngarde song, I appreciated the shorter version first, but now I only listen to the longer one.

The only gripe I could have with this song is that you haven't taken each section and made entire songs out of them yet. Seriously, all of my hats are off to you for your research and the CAGED bit. The final melody about being alone struck me so hard I unintentionally placed something very much like it in my music composition final; I removed it when I realized where it had came from, though, because it was your work, not mine.

Pffft...whatever. Fake.

Seeing "Dream of the Sky" described as an overture makes me really want to see Gavin write a Bioshock Infinite musical.

I know ive been on your threads and told you how amazing your music is before Gavin, but you really, really outdid yourself with Dream of the Sky. It just eclipses all your previous work in its scope.

I really like these Encore pieces, I dont really know anything about music, but its always fascinating finding out how these songs get made, and the thought that goes into them

This track is really good. To be honest I usually don't pay much attention to this column, but "Dream of the Sky" really piqued my interest. It's not that the track is audibly compelling to listen to, which it is, what I enjoyed the most is the way you made a connection between the two Bioshock games not with words or commentary but with audio design. This is the element of Dream of the Sky that really resonated with me. Very nicely done.

99 tracks? Sounds like you had the time of your life making this song. I think I only ever reach 15-20 tracks or so when I go completely nuts (though only playing many different guitars with no ability to sing whatsoever might work wonders in limiting track count).

I really hope that, in the cases where it makes sense (not this song since you say you only really removed redundant parts), you keep releasing both the, in lack of better words, radio edit as well as the extended full song that you make (Take it Back for example).

Will there be any more physical album releases by the way? Press X to Rock is excellent to keep in my shitty old Volvo without AUX support (you're in there right next to Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets which is quite a feat I dare say).
