Owl Stretching Time seems to explore the darker and more demented side of the sound spectrum. What was going through your head as you were making it?

We live out in the country and there are owls living in the trees near our house. I hear them when I'm out late walking the dog. I recorded them and used the sample in the breakdown where the bassline goes all creepy, just before the MS20 sequence kicks in.

Our daughter [5] was having trouble going to sleep at night so we asked her what was bothering her.

"I'm scared." She said.
"What of?" We asked.
"Owls." She replied in a small voice.

So I recorded the owls and put them in that song. She's not scared of owls anymore.

It's giants now.
