Track 7 is a remix of 'Black Cat' by Gentle Giant from their album 'Acquiring the Taste'. Originally composed by Kerry Minnear, Derek Shulman and Ray Shulman.

Composer's comments:
"Even though my heart is with video game music, you can't expect all your ideas to fit in games. You can't even expect to get enough work to try those ideas in games. Sometimes, just sometimes, you want to make music for yourself. 'We Express Ourselves With T-Shirts' is a compilation of such music written on various occasions and locations between 2007 and 2009. The title is a self-referential joke that grew on me and ultimately made it to the cover of this compilation.

'Richard's T-Shirt' was subconsciously inspired by Aphex Twin's fantastic track 'Xtal' from 'Selected Ambient Works 85-92'. It's not a blatant rip-off but I feel that it has to be mentioned since this particular album has influenced me a lot. Look at it as a tribute. 'T-Shirt Made by Sang Han' was composed especially for Sang Han, artist extraordinaire, co-worker and good friend. 'Stolen T-Shirt With Black Cat Print' is built around a single sampled loop from a track called 'Black Cat' by Gentle Giant. While it's probably somewhat illegal I couldn't resist the organic, pulsating and oh so lovable track when putting together this album. Sorry about that copyright holders, at least I'm putting it out for free!

Thanks goes out to everyone at OverClocked ReMix for helping me get to where I am today, friends and close ones for inspiration, support and joy and finally the video game music community at large for loving, promoting and re-inventing the art form. I love you!"
