Thanks chaps. :)
Well I'd like to say it's me playing a real guitar but, alas, it's just me dabbing the keys to trigger a couple of Omnisphere's presets. That nylon guitar sound is rather lush.

sweet, Pedro!!

and Dano, not the ending, but maybe 85% in, just before a big-crashing-power chord-techno-blast-widdle fest!

Is it? Oh, it is! I've been using Omni a bit, but forgot about the guitars.

Hmmm... maybe an intro before it kicks off with all the rawk and madness? ;)

Agreed, I can hear modern pads working over the top of it, building up to the big last riff! !kaboom!

I appear to be thinking that where ES's clip ends feels like a 4-beat (semi-silent) break before the first verse starts.
I can hear (in my mind's ear) a slightly over-driven voice singing a melody line over a continuation of that riff.
I'll try to "sketch" the melody line later on, then maybe someone might come up with a few words and maybe someone (else?) might have a bash at singing it?
Kind of feels like a verse-bridge-chorus-verse-solo-chorus-coda structure for some reason.

Lyrics would be great! Would be fun to have more vocals this time, and somehow tie in the " I can feel the world is turning" theme as a chorus... perhaps?

Not to say there shouldn't be long instrumental sections. ;)

I think that should be the thread running through the whole track!

Just uploaded another track to the Box. It's just some textures and the "world is turning' theme (in 3/4) over Pedro's idea.  :) http://www.box.com/s/5bkc9m07tzs7p2e2fz60

Hmm... all sounding rather swish so far... I only wish I was more musical!

Still, I can make a stab at some (probably a bit rubbish) words... (though, it's a song, so great poetry isn't essential I guess either :D) Not sure how well they'll fit, but I'm sure someone can tweak them into shape... or even smash them up and make something new from the teeny pieces  :D

I can feel the world is turning, I can feel the earth start burning,
I can hear the end, the fall, In these flames, we see it all.

I can speak in words of death, My every move, my final breath...
In the dark, the planet spins, In the fires, the darkness wins...

(An Apocalyptic Love Story maybe?)

Nicely done too. :)

Random thought: While pondering a vocal melody I realised that some of the phrasing I was playing around with was a little bit like part of the verse of Pocket Sun. That got me thinking...our hero from Pocket Sun went back in time and got stuck...why not stuck in 1976?  :D

#...and I can feel the world is turning....without me....

@Mordwin: Interesting stuff. Spooky to note the "see it all" phrase...also an echo of Pocket Sun :)

Hmm... maybe our hero escapes the end of the world by travelling back in time...? Will ponder these random musings for a bit :)

I took the intro bit last night, looped it and jammed a few things over the top with the Kaossilator and made a few synth and percussion loops plus a few "noises"! I'll upload them tonite hopefully.

One thing I noticed, and forgive my unmusically trained brain if I've missed something, but to me the intro bit is in F not Eb, as an F minor pentatonic fits nicely.

Whatever, I'm having fun!! Thanks ES for managing it all!

Pretty sure we're in Eb. If it was in F minor you'd have to play a Db instead of a D natural which doesn't work  :?:
