This mostly instrumental track accompanies one of the ending scenes in the next volume of "The Thirteenth Hour" novels, where an ancient aircraft (called a cloudrider) takes to the air in a harrowing escape from nightmarish beings only to give its passengers a white knuckle flight to another world, the world the cloudrider originally came from years ago. I channeled the flying scenes of many an 80s movie while making this track.

The backing track was mostly done using a really sweet program called Auxy, which is available for mobile phones. Many thanks to the creators who not only created an easy to use, intuitive, free platform that puts music production in your pocket but also one that can be used hassle free in productions such as this.

Cloudrider Computer: "All system are go. Main thruster at full capacity. Main coordinates locked in. Ladies and gentlemen, we are clear for takeoff. Buckle your seatbelts. It may be a wild ride. Let's hope we get there in one piece.

Aulurwen Flight Control: "Unidentified cloudrider, please identify yourself. I repeat, please identify yourself. Over."

Clpudrider Computer: "This is Cloudrider 88 AX5. Requesting permission to land, please. Over."

Aulurwen Flight Control: " Cloudrider 88 AX5, if that truly is your identification, our records show you have been missing for over 20 years ... welcome home."
