13. Epilogue (3:33)
music © 1990 by walter nicholls & colin nicholls
No suite is complete without an epilogue. Here we again bring back some musical themes from The Steel Tree and finish off the album in a pensive mood.
Walter's original vision for this was of a more orchestral nature, and perhaps I've taken some liberties with the musical arrangement. I like the way it reprises the instrumentation and themes from earlier parts of the suite.
Wow - on reflection, this really did turn into a kind of "kitchen sink" project.

Since 1988 we've been recording our jam sessions on tape cassette. In 1999 I digitized the archives for reference. Any moments of magic relevant to this track, I've extracted and present here.
Here's Walter jamming on the Korg M1 and coming up with the basic themes in 1990. The Korg M1 has some nice sounds...
Walter expands on the music, adding the second section (major key), and sequences it all in the Korg M1. I must apologize for the brash guitar right at the end.
