Passing Fancy

Passing Fancy (I, II) (2017 Remix)


Passing Fancy (I, II) – originally a fan club only release (2015) – is a 10+ minute epic that deals with the aftermath of war. It is in two parts. Part I is the main instrumental theme with Part II being an emotional construct using strings, Moog, Taurus and archive newsreel footage.

It’s designed to be very moving and I hope that comes across in the delivery. The song ends with a reprise of the main theme.

This version of the song was completely remixed and mastered, August 2017
