The Flight Deck

Key 58

Perpetual Emotion Machine

From Omega

2006

The Flight Deck Suite is the centerpiece for the Omega album. Combined with Reunion, the song tells the story how events converged and combined to turn a potentially happy situation 180 degrees in a matter of hours.

The details of the events in question are far too personal to get into in this forum, but suffice it to say that I thought I was about to travel across country to bring my daughter home with me, but that prospect was dashed due to circumstances beyond my control. It was clear that my daughter missed me and I certainly missed her, but it simply wasn’t to be.

Reunion, in this form, is a possible narrative of her and I communicating and connecting on an emotional level, inasmuch as was possible at the time. Each instrument in the song is representative of a different element of the circumstance we both found ourselves in. This musical ‘language’ I attributed to it came to me in a dream.

The song was extensively remixed and released as a digital single which was for sale for a time.
