The very middle of the journey of nine HA! moods, based on my way of analyzing reality (including non-reality): the so-called "three dimensional conceptual analysis." We are here in the second mode (Objective), and in the middle of this mode (objective-Objective), meaning, as objective as can be. Or, in other words, as external and outward as can be.

The implication is also that we are in the highest energy mode, as we exhale and exude to the maximum, experiencing the outside world in its "outsideness," therefore its every detail - the mode of the scientist. The flight is light, as we balloon upwards with few strings attached.

Music wise, we gallop in fast rhythms, creating sounds that pushes us to exert and exercise.

Of course, we cannot stay here forever, chasing time to its limits. Just as we need to realize that science is limited, unless we prefer to burn our wings in the flames of the sun.

But while we are here, let's fully fly, and enjoy the wide and open sky.

01 stringasong Techno dance type piece with a classical feel. I like this one! Let's dance and move. 06:24
02 relentless A mathematical persistence, a baroque-like clarity and a dogged linearity gives this classically sounding piece a feeling of endlessness 4:36
03 Fanfare Upbeat, dancy. Cello sings life into each beat of music. Foot-stamping, knee-twisting and toe-turning! 5:37
04 jaja Fast moving piano in baroque style along with strings spiccato, bass pizzicato and some percussion. Recorded for the fun of it! 02:38
05 ala tamacun A "church-style" arrangement of 'Tamacun' by Rodrigo y Gabriela (created for a wedding exit moment) 03:44
