Song Styles

When I was writing Flow, I didn't have a soundtrack, character themesongs, or any such musical underpinnings.  There was, however, one song, which I felt mapped to Kit and her life without any literal connection - but it conveyed the confusion, uncertainty, and strangeness of her new life:

Ghost In The Machinery - Sarah Brightman 

(For those of you familiar with Brightman from her floaty, theatric opera music, this song - and the rest of Fly, the album from which it comes - is somewhat different, more off-beat, more electronic, and more than a little weird.  In fact, I highly recommend Fly if you can get ahold of it, which is difficult to do.  It mixes up Sarah's opera tendencies with rock/pop and electronica.)
