Zdravăn is my contribution to Keith Goldman's "A Bus Stop in Bucharest" collaboration. Go check it out!
I was honored to participate (thanks again, Keith!) and had a blast. I took much inspiration from a terrific concept by Fausto De Martini, and of course from the other contributors to the collaboration.
There's a real-time version of this construction video, with commentary, on YouTube @ https://youtu.be/KuOEtfealrM.
The music in this lightning-speed cut is from Gradius V, as composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto.
