No Way Out

"No Way Out" is a remix of "Silhouette" from Besidewalk Plight.

The original "Silhouette" was written alongside "Gravity" - both pieces were very synth-heavy. Of the remixes, only this version ("No Way Out") has remained as focused on synths as the original.

It was an unusual piece for me - instead of a melody with a start, middle and end, it's mostly just 'snatches' of music. However, despite the style, only the drums use loops.

The track also leaves you hanging, as it lacks a well-rounded ending.

This remix varies the sounds, somewhat tones down the raw feel of the original, but retains the eerie, ominous vibe.
