Fire and Ice

A little synth anthem using the beloved Nord Micro Modular, which I have taken to patching once again.

The drums are TR-606 samples by Goldbaby.

The toy piano is a Schoenhut 'Fancy Baby Grand' sampled by Kent Williams

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

-Robert Frost

Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

-Macbeth, Act V Scene V
