The intro track to the forthcoming album, "Aerocaptivity" (MNSD015), offered here as a preview to the new direction signaled in that album's approach.
This track was my first composed for Mega Drive (Sega Genesis). Originally released in November of 2018, it has since undergone a bit of extra processing in its most recent iteration beyond the Mega Drive's own stereo capabilities. As of October third of 2019, the track available here has undergone further processing, stemming from its conversion into multiple and discrete tracks of PCM and reintegrated into a more dynamic stereo and spectral staging otherwise impossible for the integrated mix of the console and its soundchips. This process was meant to accentuate the character of those chips at a deeper level than mere presentation or representation.
The original, monophonic and unembellished version of this track remains intact in the context of its accompanying video, which showcases's its production within Deflemask (also available here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCRwdGT2DXQ
), but the original in its properly VGM format will be made available upon future release of the album.
