This one took a little bit of effort to bring together!, I spent a lot of time looking through many video clips to find exactly what I was after, specifically rain cloud clips.
I needed something dramatic to suit the tension in the music, also I used a lot of thunderstorm samples in the track, heavy rain coming down, thunder-crashes going off, to add to the atmosphere, so a time-lapse of a nice sunset just wouldn’t have worked!
Originally I wrote this track years ago under the title of ‘On the run’, I knew it had power to it, but the original had timing issues, and the production wasn’t good, so I decided to completely re-work it. I wanted the title to be spacey and enigmatic, but also memorable and sensual. Visions of alien storms going off in another galaxy, pure fantasy, and somewhere in my mind, Bladerunner’s Nexus 6, Roy Batty performing his soliloquy ‘I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t people, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate, all those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain’
