the Onyfad

Parallel to what is fairly normal in liturature or film, namely splitting up a story in scenes/episodes, leading to a coda where it all comes together, I tried to do the same thing with a composition for MAE:
-double bass 
-electric guitar
-myself on electronics

First I made the coda, isolated certain elements out of it and made specific compositions for those. Then I split up those pieces and mixed them all up (but the order remains chronological).
The story is about the Onyfad, a partly mythical, partly historical being.

From Wikipedia: Onyfad was a species of giant monkey that lived mainly in the southern tip of South America, the Antarctic and Tasmania, Australia. untill roughtly 5,000 years ago..........
