Creator's Notes

I just finished my latest songvid which I would like to share with subscribers of KSP! A little background... a couple of months ago I was re-reading Bitter Glass by Killa, and around the same time I had discovered Kelly Sweet through a songvid someone did of the "new" Kirk and Spock called We are One (which I really really like, BTW). This led me to another song of hers called Now We Are Free, and it stuck in my head as I was finishing BG. The longing was torturous. Wouldn't we like to see this happen? Wouldn't this be a great song to put to this story? My brain cells would not let it go, and it took some storyboarding and creative leaps, not to mention determination, but I think I may have pulled it off. For those who have not read Bitter Glass, you may get the story anyway, which is that Spock, having found a way to enter yet another space/time flux, chooses to find and join Kirk on the "other side". If I had more music and time, I may have actually incorporated some of Spock's work on Romulus (as portrayed in TNG) but the result would have been lost on those who don't know the Romulus background from Bitter Glass. Also FYI, the language Kelly is singing in this song is interesting. It is an invented language, a mix of Hebrew and what is called melismatic style sounds-- think Enya. This particular song was created by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard for the movie Gladiator.... The clips I used were TOS, Generations (I apologize for the reveal of that bald pate-- it seemed less obvious on my laptop...), The Final Frontier, The Undiscovered Country, ST (2009) and yes, Brokeback Mountain.
