Authors' Notes

This song tells the story of my bungee jump from last May.

The experience what strong, not to say traumatizing. The first part describes how I felt before and during the jump (you may hear something that evokes the pins and needles feeling, as I felt it all over my body like never before). After the jump I spent the next 3 days in a weird state, almost every action I would do would come with the question "Am I gonna survive?", like if I want to shut down the door I would spend a fraction of second double checking if that action
wouldn't kill me. The nights where equally strange, consisting of recursive psychedelic dreams about my jump. The third night, as I started feeling better, I heard the main theme of the song in my dream, almost notes for notes, with the same techno style I tried to reproduce.

Each part has a meaning intended:

0:00 - 1:42 Before the jump
1:42 - 1:55 During the jump
1:55 - 2:36 I survived
2:36 - 2:51 Post-jump madness
2:51 - 3:17 I can't get quiet
3:17 - 4:39 I survived, life goes on
4:39 - 4:46 I still feel those pins and needles though

this is incredible ... i can really feel your increasing heartbeat before the jump ... your track is really, really different and so personal!

I'll say this much -- you always do such creative ideas. Great intro atmosphere. All the timing mash-ups are really cool. I like that bassline sound. Once your backup harmony elements come into play around 3:50 it gets a lot more pscyhed. Prior to that, the main lead is rather simple and dry sounding for A-lin. Could have expected a more articulated beautiful arp or something. Still lots of supporting atmosphere. Sorry I didn't join you in an attempt at pseudo J-core. One of these days I'll get off the slow BPM train.

Very creative idea - for me especially the first part also worked to get sucked into the mood - as i am listening to all the tunes on my headphones.
