"Excelsior" is an extended version of the theme created for the Rob and Dan Invitational Tournament, an event based in Guns of Icarus Online (like Aerodrome, which the rest of the album was made for). After creating the initial 30-second clip, I realised that I had something special, so I set about extending the piece as part of a 10-hour overnight session. The end result is what you are listening to right now.
I'm probably more proud of this than I am of any of my previous work. Hopefully this can elicit the same motion in listeners as it did in me when I created it.
