This one is a "one synth" type of thing, although with some drums and
percussion.  It features a theme followed by two solos.  A total
improvisation done rather quickly although some time was spent mixing
it, with several iterations evaluated over 2 weeks.

The synth is u-he's Hive. I yet do not make sounds and so I thank
people out there who are so creative in creating patches - for me it
is still some kind of mysterious art.

Cheers !

Sketched out in Bitwig, single tracks exported pre fader into Mixbus
32C for mixing.  

Mixbus: XT-EG, XT-DC on drums, XT-EG on bass drum.  Reverb on various
mixbusses: Uhbik-A.  Uhbik phaser on cymbals. Master bus: XT-ME, and a
Presswerk that despite its preset name of being 'Gentle loving' is
working quite a lot.  Ambient, bassline and arp tracks were doubled
and panned.  The copied bassline track was filtered highly to extract
only the midrange and then blended in back with the original.
