Although our musical styles are similar, they bear a host of differences.

This song was created without ever seeing or meeting each other in person. Speak Loud Advocate (Dan Green) is from Omaha, NE and Qualia (Dan Leader) is from Cambridge, UK. Without the seamless connectivity of technology, this song would not have been possible.

It started out as just an organ. I uploaded that track for Dan L. to download. He would add a few more tracks and upload those. I would take that combination of tracks, add a few more, and upload it again. This cycle repeated a number of times until we felt like the song was finished. I mixed the tracks, did some light mastering, and here we are.
