Liner Notes: 

Having recently watched the movie Aeon Flux with Charlize Theron, I couldn't help but be reminded of the original Aeon Flux from the MTV days. Yes, I was a fan, and thinking back, the animated, dystopian nightmare had an eerie 1984 feel complete with a police state manipulating the masses. It was brilliant in overdosing on sex, violence and death. http://www.mtv.com/shows/aeon-flux

The big surprise is the announcement of plans for a live action reboot by MTV Liquid Television. Given the current cultural climate, and especially the #metoo movement, it's hard to imagine a feminist hero in this particular role. We'll just have to wait and see. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/aeon-flux-live-action-tv-reboot-set-at-mtv-1119290

So here is a little piano piece to get the weird wired.

Really nice and dark piano music. This is my sort of song, for sure! Regrettably, I've never seen Aeon Flux (but you can bet it's now on my list Smile ), but I still enjoyed this piece for what it is - moody, dark, slightly unsettling. Great job!

We used to watch that animation, back in the day! Somehow we never caught the movie, though I recall the previews. This has a flavor of some of the austerity of the spacious, nearly empty settings of the animation. And Middle Eastern scales always call up sensual/sexual overtones for me. It's only missing a robotic insect killer, or something like that. It's been so long, I can't quite remember. Nice any way you slice it!

Yeah, great soundtrack for a dystopian nightmare.
I love the minimalist nature of this.
So much space.
