Effigy (Idol II)
This track was written as a "sequel" to Idol, hence the title. It started as some small ideas for a pipe organ track but quickly got out of hand and evolved into more of a demostyle song.
The big drum sounds I used at the beginning were sampled from a Weather Report track and then sequenced in MED. I can't remember what the name of this track is, but I can tell you that it involves a fellow shouting things out in non-English while pounding on these drums.
Also, I should mention that the nice clean trumpet instrument was borrowed from a MOD by Weasel.
I wasn't really able to decide if I wanted to write classical music or demostyle music so I ended up with this strange sort of hybrid.
